Motor Protein Application Note Now Online

The cytoskeleton and its many molecular motors are major players in a variety of cellular functions. The interconnected networks of cytoskeletal filaments act as tracks directing molecular motor transport and provide structural support and organization to cells. One example of a class of motor proteins is the myosin superfamily, a…
