Welcome to Andrew Carterís Lab.

We work on the structure and mechanism of the motor protein dynein using a combination of X-ray crystallography and advanced single molecule techniques.

Please navigate the pages to find out more about the labís research, members as well as the opportunities that are available to join us.

Model of the complete dynein motor domain. The structure is colored according to the rainbow scheme (N terminal linker is purple, AAA1 in blue and then so until AAA6 which is in red.) For a full resolution image click HERE

The structure of the motor domain is the second longest protein chain in the pdb and the longest to be expressed recombinantly.

Please follow the link for an interactive view of this structure (requires java).
