          Abstract

          Five chemically distinct classes of intermediate filaments can be identified within higher eukaryotic cells. Each class is characteristic of a particular cell type. These filaments may function to integrate mechanically the various structures of the cytoplasmic space in a way that is tailored to the differentiated state of the cell.
