Measuring the Kinetic and Mechanical Properties of Non-processive Myosins Using Optical Tweezers.

Abstract

The myosin superfamily of molecular motors utilizes energy from ATP hydrolysis to generate force and motility along actin filaments in a diverse array of cellular processes. These motors are structurally, kinetically, and mechanically tuned to their specific molecular roles in the cell. Optical trapping techniques have played a central role in elucidating… (More)
