Real-time imaging of single motor proteins
Project Description

How single motor proteins move along actin or microtubule is a fundamental question but remain elusive. In particular, how single motor proteins move in live cells has not studied extensively because of several challenges. We plan to investigate movements of single motor proteins in live cells.
