Intermediate filaments differ from other cytoskeletons in terms of composition, size and functions.
Intermediate filaments are an essential class of cytoskeletal proteins. Give two examples of how they are different from the other cytoskeletal systems, i.e., microtubules and actin. (The best answer will include some details about the other cytoskeletal elements, e.g., composition, proteins that bind actin/tubulin, etc.)
