In the Preface we discussed two questions which encompass most of the research on the cytoskeleton and signaling:
  1. 1)

    How are the structure and function of the cytoskeleton affected by external signals which impinge on the cell?

  2. 2)

    How does the cytoskeleton influence the cellular signaling processes which determine cell behaviors?
