Abstract : The Cytoskeleton and Cell Function meeting brought together scientists working on the cytoskeleton in invertebrate and vertegrate systems. Although much information is now available concerning the structural and molecular bases for the various cytoskeletal components, it is only recently that the function and regulation of these components in cellular processes is beginning to be understood. The meeting highlighted topics in actin filament assembly and dynamics, cell motility, microtubule assembly and dynamics cell division, intermediate filaments, molecular motors, intracellular trafficking, signal transduction, membrane-cytoskeleton interactions, and development and differentiation. Various experimental approaches were presented, including biochemistry, genetics, and molecular biology. The sessions encompassed the most recent advances in the field and made for an intense and stimulating exchange of information.
