Force–Velocity Curves of Motor Proteins Cooperating In Vivo


Motor proteins convert chemical energy into work, thereby generating persistent motion of cellular and subcellular objects. The velocities of motor proteins as a function of opposing loads have been previously determined in vitro for single motors. These single molecule “force–velocity curves” have been useful for elucidating motor kinetics and for… (More)
