About This Quiz & Worksheet

This short self-assessment quiz will ask you a handful of questions about cytoskeletal proteins. You'll be asked about the functions and parts of these protein types.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

To pass the quiz, you'll need to:

  • Recognize a cytoskeletal protein that allows for cell movement
  • Identify the cytoskeleton part that acts like a material transport highway
  • Name the protein that helps split cells into two parts during cell division
  • Understand which cytoskeletal protein produces nails and hair
  • Know which proteins provide nucleus structure

Skills Practiced

  • Knowledge application - use what you know about cytoskeleton parts to name the part that acts like a transportation highway
  • Distinguishing differences - be able to tell the difference between several cytoskeletal proteins
  • Reading comprehension - take away the most important information from the related protein lesson

Additional Learning

If you want to learn more about this type of protein, check out the related lesson, Cytoskeletal Proteins: Types & Function. The lesson goes over the following objectives:

  • Identify the three categories of cytoskeletal proteins
  • Name types of tissue that are found in the human body
  • Outline the overall process of cell division
