Microtubule based motors that are mostly plus-end directed
Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
Acts on ATP to strip off two phosphates turning it into cAMP
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
Portion that is connected to filament
Other proteins or molecules that are necessary to keep the enzyme activated

Protein changes its shape in a way to where it no longer functions
Turn things on
Due to multiple copies of a gene the effect of a gene can be enhanced
Proteins that exchange solutes
There is a limit as to how fast an enzyme can go; one substrate move in and products move out before the next substrate moves in
What is IP3?
Connecting a hormone to a very specific effector
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion
What does cAMP activate?
“Hump” to get over on its way to lower energy

An assay with actin over myosin
Dynein that is used for cargo transport
Relates time to the mean squared distance traveled
A system that’s based in cytoskeleton of neurons that is responsible for transporting materials such as organelles, vesicles… etc.
Molecular sized apparatus that converts energy to work
Using RNA as a template for making protein
What is cAMP?
An assay with kinesin or dynein and microtubules
Monomer buffer
