Handles Oxidative stress in the body.
Molecular motor that takes cargo to center of cell
Turn things off
Stabilizes microtubules, blocking cell division
The folded bits in the mitochondria

A motor is called this if it can walk continuously along a filament without falling off
Allows a reaction to go faster
Same enzyme doing basically the same reaction but in a different way
Acts on ATP to strip off two phosphates turning it into cAMP
Breaking apart water (hydrolysis) in the process of breaking protein chains
Rate of using ATP
Any device that changes some measurable quantity into another measurable quantity
Portion that is connected to filament
Proteins that transport solutes together
Something that binds to a receptor
