Dynein's Life in the Slow Lane

Neuron. 2016 Jun 1;90(5):907-9. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2016.05.026.


Dynein synthesized in neuronal cell bodies is conveyed into the axon by slow transport, but underlying mechanisms are unclear. In this issue, Twelvetrees et al. (2016) propose a model where dynein is transported by direct-but transient-interactions with kinesin.
