Name the three types of cytoskeleton and their primary function.
The three types of cytoskeleton are microtubules, microfilaments (actin), and intermediate filaments. Microtubules are hollow cylindrical filaments of tubulin subunits and are involved as a scaffold for cell shape and tracks for movement inside cell. Microfilaments are the narrowest and are polymers of actin that assist with cell and muscle movement. Intermediate filaments provide mechanical support and are not involved in movement.
What are the components and corresponding functions of the small intestine?
The small intestine can be sectioned into three parts including the duodenum, jejunum, and ilium. The primary function of the duodenum is digestion by enzymes. The pancreatic duct and common bile duct enter in the duodenum. The jejunum is the second part of the SI and is responsible for nutrient absorption. Finally, the ilium is the last part of the SI has a role in water absorption.
