    Competition between kinesin-1 and myosin-V defines Drosophila posterior determination

    Wen Lu et al.
    Posterior determination of Drosophila oocyte is defined by competition between kinesin-1 removing posterior determinants from the cortex and myosin-V anchoring them.

    Cortical dynein pulling mechanism is regulated by differentially targeted attachment molecule Num1

    Safia Omer et al.
    Dynein-dependent microtubule-cortex interactions – "side-on" versus "end-on" pulling – are regulated by cortical ER and mediated by distinct pools of cortical anchor that are differentially localized along the cell periphery.

    Molecular basis for dyneinopathies reveals insight into dynein regulation and dysfunction

    Matthew G Marzo et al.
    A mutagenesis screen in budding yeast sheds light on dynein regulation and function, and reveals the molecular basis for disease in patients suffering from neuropathies caused by dynein dysfunction.

    The Rab6-regulated KIF1C kinesin motor domain contributes to Golgi organization

    Peter L Lee et al.
    Rab6A binds directly to both the C-terminus and the N-terminal motor domain of the kinesin KIF1C to regulate vesicle motility and Golgi organization.

    Interplay between kinesin-1 and cortical dynein during axonal outgrowth and microtubule organization in Drosophila neurons

    Urko del Castillo et al.
    Cortical dynein organizes unipolar microtubule arrays in Drosophila axons by expelling minus-end-out microtubules.

    Kinesin motility is driven by subdomain dynamics

    Wonmuk Hwang et al.
    The motor protein kinesin utilizes its fuel molecule by active and concerted motions of its subdomains, while it rapidly interacts with the microtubule track by forming a wet and dynamic interface.

    NuMA recruits dynein activity to microtubule minus-ends at mitosis

    Christina L Hueschen et al.
    At mitosis, NuMA recruits dynein-dynactin to microtubule minus-ends, enabling robust microtubule clustering and the emergence of spindle poles.

    Systematic studies of all PIH proteins in zebrafish reveal their distinct roles in axonemal dynein assembly

    Hiroshi Yamaguchi et al.
    Zebrafish genetics and cryo-electron tomography reveal distinct roles of all vertebrate PIH family proteins in axonemal dynein assembly and cilia/flagella motions, assigning specific dynein subtypes to each PIH protein.

    Kinesin-4 KIF21B is a potent microtubule pausing factor

    Wilhelmina E van Riel et al.
    Kinesin-4 KIF21B combines a processive motor activity with two non-motor microtubule-binding domains and an autoregulatory region to induce pausing of microtubule plus ends.

    Dynein-2 intermediate chains play crucial but distinct roles in primary cilia formation and function

    Laura Vuolo et al.
    Genetic knock-outs of the dynein-2 intermediate chains reveals that both are essential for correct cilia function and transition zone organization, but play different functions in the assembly of dynein-2 motor and in primary cilia formation.
