Andrew Carter’s group has showed how dynein (grey), a motor protein, moves along microtubules (green). Dynein attaches to its cargo via an adaptor protein called Bicaudal-D2 (orange). The attachment requires the help of another protein complex called dynactin (multi-coloured). These structures were determined by both cryo-EM and X-ray crystallography and Janet Iwasa helped create this beautiful image for day 174 of #LMB365.
