MOTOR proteins in cells include myosin1, which is actin-based, and kinesin, dynein and dynamin2, which are microtubule-based. Several proteins have recently been identified that have amino-acid sequences with similarity to the motor domains of either myosin3 or kinesin4–9, but are otherwise dissimilar. This has led to the suggestion that these may all be motor proteins, but that they are specialized for moving different cargos. Genetic analysis can address the question of the different… CONTINUE READING
