Cell mechanics depends on the mechanical properties of actin microfilaments (MFs), microtubules (MTs) and intermediate filaments (IFs), that build the cytoskeleton. Actin microfilaments are the most abundant components and play significant roles in various cellular processes . Among them, the mechanical properties of MFs are essential for the functions of the cytoskeleton and are directly related to their molecular architecture.
