  • Cytoplasmic dynein is a microtubule-based motor protein that transports intracellular cargo and performs various functions during cell division. We previously reported that Lis1 suppressed dynein motility on microtubules in an idling state. Recently, a model showed that Lis1 prevents the ATPase domain of dynein from transmitting a detachment signal to its microtubule-binding domain. However, conformational information on dynein is limited. We used electron microscopy to investigate the… CONTINUE READING
