Why is the cytoskeleton the most important organelle?

The of the cell helps maintain its structure. Without the cytoskeleton there wouldn’t be the necessary space to sustain homeostasis, or balance, in the cell.

You could think of the cytoskeleton like the bones in your body. Our skeleton helps us move, support posture, and maintains the scaffolding that holds our muscles and organs. The same is true inside the cell. The cytoskeleton supports the structure of the cell, helps move the cell as well as move things within the cell, and supports the organelles.
