Coupling between ATP hydrolysis and microtubule movement was demonstrated several years ago in flagellar axonemes1,2 and subsequent studies suggest that the relevant microtubule motor, dynein, uses ATP to drive microtubule sliding by a cross-bridge mechanism analogous to that of myosin in muscles3,4. Kinesin5, a microtubule-based motility protein which may participate in organelle transport and mitosis6, binds microtubules in a nucleo-tide-sensitive manner5,7,8, and requires hydrolysable… CONTINUE READING
