Motor proteins

Motor Proteins

Motor Protein

A protein (as dynein, kinesin, or myosin) that moves itself along a filament or polymeric molecule using energy generated by the hydrolysis of ATP.


Types of motor proteins

Types of motor proteins

  • 1.Dynein

  • 2. kinesin

  • 3. myosin


Dynein motor protein

Dynein Motor Protein

-Dyneinsare microtubule motors capable of a sliding movement.

-Dyneincomplexes are much larger and more complex than kinesin and myosin motors.

-Dyneinfacilitates the movement of cilia and flagella.


Dynein motor protein continued

-One type of Dynein motor protein is found in fungi.

-Thirteen different types of Dynein motor proteins are found in insects.

-Fourteen to Fifteen different Dynein motor proteins are found in humans.

Kinesin motor protein

Kinesin Motor Protein

Flowering plants have an abundance of Kinesin Motor Proteins.

Kinesin Motor Proteins specialize in the mitosis of plant cells.
