DNA Recombination and Repair—A New Twist to RecA Function

...nical force. Well-known examples of motors include myosin and dynein, proteins that use ATP to ferry intracellular cargo along fibers made of actin or tubulin proteins. The ATP-dependent assembly of actin or tubulin fibers itself can work as a motor: for instance, the march of white blood cells toward patho...

UI researcher studies deafness in fruit flies, humans

...ecular component specialized for hearing function, myosin VIIA, is conserved in these ears. In looking for ...enerated by the normal flies to those generated by myosin VIIA mutant flies, they showed that the myosin VIIA gene is essential for hearing in flies, as it is...

Discovery of agile molecular motors could aid in treating motor neuron diseases

...linois found that a "local delivery" motor, termed myosin V, moves cargo with a variable path short distance...ar track called actin. This flexibility could help myosin V navigate crowded regions of the cell where the actin filaments criss-cross and where other cellula...

Newts which regrow their hearts

...proteins typical of heart muscle cells - the heavy myosin chain and various troponins - were dramatically down-regulated in this process. At the same time, the cells embark on massive cell division to build up new heart muscle. It takes around two weeks for the heart function to be restored in the newt. The...

Motor protein plays key role in connecting neurons
