Motility is a hallmark of life. Even cells that are incapable of active movement within their environment perform essential intracellular motility processes. A number of mechanisms have evolved to generate the mechanical forces required to drive biological motility. A particularly successful and ubiquitous mechanism of biological force production utilizes mechanochemical enzymes, or ‘‘motor proteins.’’ These enzymes convert chemical energy, typically in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP… CONTINUE READING
