Dynein in Biological Technology
Dynein in Biological Definition
is a class of protein found in biological cells and is involved in their reproduction. Dyneins can be divided into two groups: cytoplasmic dynein
and axonemal dynein.
The axonemal dynein
acts to activate a sliding within flagellar microtubules , whereas the cytoplasmic dynein
...ins nine pairs of microtubule doublets and other associated proteins. Motile cilia have a central core with two additional microtubule singlets and dynein
motor proteins which are attached to the outer microtubule doublets. Biologists refer to this organization as a cononical "9 + 2" structure. The ...
