    Background: Spermatogenesis in the semi-aquatic fern, Marsilea vestita, is a rapid, synchronous process that is initiated when dry microspores are placed in water. Development is post-transcriptionally driven and can be divided into two phases. The first phase consists of nine mitotic division...

    Genomic analysis predicted that the rice (Oryza sativa var. japonica) genome encodes at least 41 kinesin-like proteins including the novel kinesin O12, which is classified as a kinesin-14 family member. O12 has a calponin homology (CH) domain that is known as an actin-binding domain. In this...

    Kinesin is a motor protein that delivers cargo inside a cell. Kinesin has many different families, but they perform basically same function and have same motions. The walking motion of kinesin enables the cargo delivery inside the cell. Autoinhibition of kinesin is important because it explains...
