Troy, NY – Today, the development of clean energy is critical to the economy and the environment of the state and the nation. Recently, the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Center for Future Energy Systems (CFES) was selected to receive a state grant redesignating the center as part of the New York State Center for Advanced Technology (CAT) Program.
New research shows that a single conserved mechanism governs the movement of two structurally distinct variants of kinesin-14 – a class of molecular motors that moves materials and facilitates chromosomal separation within cells. The finding indicates that a mechanism using strain to advance the protein along its path has survived the pressures of evolution in diverse designs of motor proteins within this subfamily of kinesins.
