Molecular Gearheads

Abstract:
"Investigating Molecular Motors Step by Step" - that's the title of a fascinating article in The Scientist. Sounds like they might be building machines for molecular manufacturing, right? Well, not exactly, but close. The subtitle says, "Recent discoveries begin to answer how dyneins, kinesins, and myosins actually work." Ah, so what these gearheads are actually studying is how protein motors work...and the similarities are intriguing.
