Motor Proteins from Cytoskeleton Inc.

Biologically Active Recombinant Proteins


Eukaryotic kinesin motor proteins utilize the energy of ATP hydrolysis to move cargoes, such as chromosomes and vesicles, along cytoskeletal microtubule networks. They play a major role in almost all aspects of intracellular transport and are involved in a wide range of physiological processes, including embryonic development, axonal transport, and cell division. 


Kinesin Heavy Chain Motor Domain Protein: GST Tagged (KR01)


Product Uses:

  • Measurement of microtubule-activated ATPase activity
  • Identification/characterization of proteins or small molecules that affect motor ATPase activity
  • Identification/characterization of proteins or small molecules that affect kinesin motility
  • Identification/characterization of proteins or small molecules that affect motor/microtubule interactions



KR01.jpgFigure Legend. Microtubule activated kinesin ATPase assay (Cat. # BK060) using kinesin heavy chain motor domain protein (Cat. # KR01) and pre-formed microtubules (Cat. # MT001). Each condition (microtubules (MT) alone, kinesin alone and microtubules + kinesin) was performed in triplicates.
