Axonemal dyneins

Curr Opin Cell Biol. 1992 Feb;4(1):74-9. doi: 10.1016/0955-0674(92)90061-g.


Recent advances in our understanding of the axonemal dyneins reveal them to be much more complex than previously believed. A combination of genetic, molecular genetic, ultrastructural and biochemical approaches is now aiding the elucidation of the organization and function of these important mechanochemical transducers.
