Basic subunit for filaments
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way

Length one step of a motor makes
Stabilize nerve axons by maintaining girth
Dynein that is used for cargo transport

Altered vision and confusion
A motor is called this if it can walk continuously along a filament without falling off
Acts on ATP to strip off two phosphates turning it into cAMP
Control where microtubules form and they bypass the time for nucleation.
A large chunk of the microtubule disassembles rapidly
Causes disassembly of microtubules
Molecular sized apparatus that converts energy to work

Shut down mitosis
Protein that forms filaments for muscle contraction

Form the tonofilaments of epithelia, found in skin and hair
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
Monomer concentration [m] at which the rate of monomer addition equals the rate of monomer loss.
The folded bits in the mitochondria
Stabilizes microtubules, blocking cell division
Shuttle that promotes nucleotide exchange
What is cAMP?
Force x distance
Normal though harmful byproduct of oxidative metabolism
Binds and hydrolyzes GTP

A flattened extension of a cell, by which it moves over or adheres to a surface
