A key step in the processive motion of two-headed kinesin along a microtubule is the 'docking' of the neck linker that joins each kinesin head to the motor's dimerized coiled-coil neck. This process is similar to the folding of a protein beta-hairpin, which starts in a highly mobile unfolded state that has significant entropic elasticity and finishes in a(More)

Such plasticity allows colonies to sustain efficiency of the whole without the cost of additional production of individuals or delayed responses to perturbations. Using the recently discovered social clonal stage of trematode parasites, we investigated whether members of(More)
