Molecular Simulation Study on the Walking Mechanism of Kinesin Dimers on Microtubules

Kinesins are motor proteins that, when they hydrolyze ATP, travel unidirectionally along microtubules. While the general characteristics of the kinesin walking system are becoming increasingly apparent, there are still some key questions unanswered, such as how ATP’s chemical energy is transformed into mechanical energy and processed. In this research, we found through molecular simulations and…
