intermediate filament cytoskeleton

id: GO:0045111
name: intermediate filament cytoskeleton
namespace: cellular_component
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: Cytoskeletal structure made from intermediate filaments, typically organized in the cytosol as an extended system that stretches from the nuclear envelope to the plasma membrane. Some intermediate filaments run parallel to the cell surface, while others traverse the cytosol; together they form an internal framework that helps support the shape and resilience of the cell.
