Caitlin Sedwick; Jonathon Howard: Motor proteins go walkabout. J Cell Biol 20 January ; 2 : — Kinesins are a large family of plus-end—directed microtubule motor proteins. They are involved in many cellular processes, including organellar trafficking to cell division and regulation of the microtubule cytoskeleton. Jonathon Howard began studying kinesins shortly after kinesin-1 was discovered 1. Thanks to his efforts, the motor protein field has made major strides toward understanding the mechanical properties of several kinesin motors 2—4 and the impact of motor proteins on microtubule dynamics 5 , flagellar motility 6 , and more.
Access options available:. Perspectives in Biology and Medicine By Jonathon Howard. Sunderland, MA: Sinauer Associates, Many types of biological movement are driven by "motor proteins" that move along two types of filament, actin and microtubules, that form the "cytoskeleton" which helps to maintain cell shape. The best understood of the motors is myosin, which forms the thick filaments that interact with actin filaments to produce muscle force and shortening. Other motor proteins include dyneins and kinesins, as well as non-muscle myosins.

Part I explains how small particles like proteins respond to mechanical, thermal, and chemical forces, Part II focuses on cytoskeletal filaments, and Part III focuses on motor proteins.
A text students who want to learn about the principles of protein mechanics and how it applies to the morphology and motility of cells. Unlike most books in this field, it aims to provide a physical foundation for molecular mechanics, rather than a study of macroscopic systems.

Motor proteins are molecular machines that convert chemical energy from ATP hydrolysis into mechanical work, which powers cell motility. Over the last ten years, single-molecule techniques and structural studies have led to rapid progess in understanding how these biological motors operate. How do they move? How do they generate force?
Thank you for visiting nature.
Biological Physics pp Cite as. Motor proteins are enzymes that convert chemical energy derived from the hydrolysis of a small molecule called ATP into mechanical work used to power directed movement along cytoskeletal filaments inside cells. Motor proteins have essential biological functions such as driving the contraction of muscle, the beating of sperm and cilia, and the transport of intracellular cargoes.
Все здесь напоминало зловещую декорацию к голливудскому фильму ужасов. В воздухе стоял тяжелый запах мочи. Лампочки в конце коридора не горели, и на протяжении последних двадцати метров можно было различать только смутные силуэты.
He знаю. Но уж определенно не здесь! - Он улыбнулся. - Может, все-таки чего-нибудь выпьете. Беккер понимал, что, по мнению бармена, ведет себя странно. - Quiere Vd. Algo? - настаивал бармен. - Fino.

Глаза Бринкерхоффа чуть не вылезли из орбит. Мидж и раньше были свойственны фантазии, но ведь не. Он попробовал ее успокоить: - Джабба, похоже, совсем не волнуется. - Джабба - дурак! - прошипела. Эти слова его удивили.
