A chemically reversible Brownian motor: application to kinesin and Ncd.


Kinesin and nonclaret disjunctional protein (ncd) are two microtubule-based molecular motors that use energy from ATP hydrolysis to drive motion in opposite directions. They are structurally very similar and bind with similar orientations on microtubule. What is the origin of the different directionality? Is it some subtle feature of the structure of the… (More)
