    Lis1 regulates dynein by sterically blocking its mechanochemical cycle

    Katerina Toropova et al.
    Structural and functional studies reveal how a ubiquitous regulator of dynein keeps the microtubule-based motor in a persistent track-bound state.

    A Ras-like domain in the light intermediate chain bridges the dynein motor to a cargo-binding region

    Courtney M Schroeder et al.
    The dynein light intermediate chain is a member of the G protein superfamily and links the motor to several intracellular cargo adaptors.

    Kinesin and dynein use distinct mechanisms to bypass obstacles

    Luke S Ferro et al.
    Dynein bypasses obstacles on microtubules more efficiently than single kinesin, and kinesins overcome this limitation when transporting intracellular cargos in teams.

    High-resolution structures of kinesin on microtubules provide a basis for nucleotide-gated force-generation

    Zhiguo Shang et al.
    Microtubule attachment fundamentally modifies kinesin's behavior by triggering a ‘clamshell’ opening of the nucleotide cleft, subsequently reversed by ATP binding, that couples to cargo translocation.

    The mechanism of kinesin inhibition by kinesin-binding protein

    Joseph Atherton et al.
    Cryo-electron microscopy reveals how kinesin-binding protein inhibits microtubule attachment in a subset of kinesins.

    ZMYND10 functions in a chaperone relay during axonemal dynein assembly

    Girish R Mali et al.
    Chaperoning defects in axonemal dynein subunits trigger proteostatic clearance of dynein motors opening up the possibility of trialling proteostasis modulators to treat the motile ciliopathy primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD).

    Motility and microtubule depolymerization mechanisms of the Kinesin-8 motor, KIF19A

    Doudou Wang et al.
    The structural and functional analysis demonstrates the mechanism of dual functional, motility and microtubule depolymerization in a unique motor, KIF19A.

    Structural basis of cooperativity in kinesin revealed by 3D reconstruction of a two-head-bound state on microtubules

    Daifei Liu et al.
    A novel algorithm is used to solve the first 3D reconstruction of a stepping kinesin dimer on microtubules, directly visualizing the conformational effects of inter-head strain and giving novel insights into the motility mechanism.

    Orchestration of microtubules and the actin cytoskeleton in trichome cell shape determination by a plant-unique kinesin

    Juan Tian et al.
    Kinesin-like calmodulin-binding protein integrates microtubules and F-actin to assemble the cytoskeletal configuration needed for trichome formation.

    Cytoplasmic dynein crosslinks and slides anti-parallel microtubules using its two motor domains

    Marvin E Tanenbaum et al.
    The motor domains of dynein are sufficient to crosslink microtubules and slide them antiparallel to each other.
