A Specific Example

 

 


One Bad Motor: Want to play Molecular Detective and follow the trail of an errant motor? You can join us in trying to pin the crime on the mutant in the section, wherein we follow one mutant (designated G680V) through our many experimental "sieves" in hopes of unlocking its well-shrouded secrets.

Two wrongs = Right! How do you solve a problem like 680V? Our long term goal is to deduce structural states of the myosin motor by determining how a primary defect (such as the G680V mutation) can be compensated by further alteration of the motor's parts. For the breakdown of what's going on with our search for genetic fixes to the G680V problem, visit this page.
