The relationship of cytoskeleton and cell walls in relations to eukayotic cells shapes.

Cytoskeleton
It forms a frame work for the eukaryotic cells located in the cytoplasm and it constantly changes structures.  It can be dismantled in one place and then rearranged in another spot.  The cytoskeleton is made up of a network of tiny rods and filaments. Microtublues are thin, hollow cylinders and microfilaments are smaller solid fibers. Both are proteins. They work together to keep the shape of the cell. The cell wall of the plant cells help keep the structure of the cells.  

Gap Junctions
It connects the cytoplasm of cells which creates a path for substances can freely enter and run through one cell to the other
 
Tight Junctions
It holds the plasma membrane together by connecting plasma membranes together
 
Desmosomes
Proteins that are dome shaped. They are connected by microfilaments which help the cell keep its cell.
 
Actin
They are located in eukaryotic cells which helps keep the shape of the cell and determines how it moves.
 
Cell Wall
Cell walls are located in bacteria, archea, fungi, plants, and algae cells. They are not found in animal protists. They protect the cells, provides shape, and support the cell.  The cell walls are made of carbohydrates.
