Technical Tuesday Walking Protein

Technical Tuesday Walking Protein

In our remarkably complex body there are more than a few mysterious things. Today I present the kinesin protein. It’s often called a “motor protein” because its job is to deliver essential molecules to their (cellular) destinations. One might say it is the UPS of the body.

But what’s really interesting about this kinesin protein is how it moves. It “walks”. It has two structures at its base that are often referred to as “feet”, and these structures allow the kinesin protein to walk. To see how this works see today’s Link of the Day below.

Scientists aren’t sure how this all came about, but there is no denying that the kinesin protein moves by “walking”.
