The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
Two different proteins stuck together
Proteins that transport solutes together
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion

Length one step of a motor makes
What is IP3?
What enzymes act upon
The folded bits in the mitochondria
Load bearing filaments
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
Plus-end directed, toward the periphery
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
Due to multiple copies of a gene the effect of a gene can be enhanced
An assay with kinesin or dynein and microtubules
Relates time to the mean squared distance traveled
Using RNA as a template for making protein
A temporary protrusion of the surface of an ameboid cell for movement and feeding
Double membrane around the nucleus
Made of actin and actin-binding proteins, responsible for cell shape, contraction, motility, and cellular transport
Molecular motor that takes cargo to periphery of cell
Where a specific kind of RNA (ribosomal) is being made
Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
Energy bearing compound
Connecting a hormone to a very specific effector
Turn things off
A system that’s based in cytoskeleton of neurons that is responsible for transporting materials such as organelles, vesicles… etc.
Protein that forms filaments for muscle contraction
Turn things on
Other proteins or molecules that are necessary to keep the enzyme activated
