The word skeleton sounds very signiﬁcant, and indeed humans could not exist without a skeleton! Similarly, a cellular skeleton or cytoskeleton is crucial for the functions of a cell. Several different types of cytoskeleton have been identiﬁed that are necessary, for among other things, muscle movement and the activities of the brain, and consequently humans could not function at all without cytoskeletons. This also means that a number of diseases are connected with defects in cytoskeletal elements, and various chemotherapies that are presently used to treat a variety of tumors aim to impair the functions of cytoskeletons. Inasmuch as cytoskeletons play a crucial role in the actions of cells and of the human body, and considering that modulation of the activities of cytoskeletons is essential for the treatment of patients, the ﬁnding of a novel cytoskeletal element should open up a new area of research—a new scientiﬁc world!
