Direct Observation of Individual Kinesin Head Motions

they attached a dna "handle" to a kinesin head and tracked the motion using tweezers! before we saw this talk larry and i each separately had this idea. they did this to understand how the heads move via direct observation.

they find that there is a one head bound waiting state. they believe that the free head can diffuse around at will.

really great talk!
