The intermediate filaments are a family of cytoskeletal differentiation-related proteins present in virtually all eukaryotic cells. First described during early electron microscopic studies of cellular structure, they were found to be intermediate in diameter between microtubules and microfilaments. They have only recently been recognized as a family of dynamic intracellular elements.
