Crystal Structure of the Dynein Motor Domain Print
Friday, 04 March 2011 00:00

Artistic rendering of dynein motor proteins moving along microtubules, based on a crystal structure reported by Carter et al. on p. 1159. This study reveals the architecture of the molecular machine that powers the beating of cilia and intracellular transport and provides insight into the mechanism by which energy from adenosine triphosphate hydrolysis is converted into motion.
