Introductory Stuff


The MotorCycle To behold what (I believe) the motor cycle looks like, try this page. Here you'll also find a verbal description of (one interpretation of) the important events that cause the myosin motor to change state and change shape as it does its work.

the Amino Acid Theatre: This feature lets you look at and compare amino acid structures as stick figures or spacefilling models. Requires the Chime plug-in.

the Bestiary Care to know what the critical structural elements of the myosin motor are? And learn some handy gross oversimplifications that will help you remember what parts are where? For the naming of parts, visit this site.

Help!!! Need more background info, like what do the individual amino acids look like and what are their properties? I'm working on a list of links in this page...
