Cytoplasmic dynein is a two-headed microtubule-based motor responsible for diverse intracellular movements, including minus-end-directed transport of organelles. The motility of cargo transporters is regulated according to the presence or absence of cargo; however, it remains unclear how cytoplasmic dynein achieves such regulation. Here, using a recombinant and native dynein complex in vitro, we show that lone, single dynein molecules are in an autoinhibited state, in which the two motor heads… CONTINUE READING
