  • Quick notes
    • a uniform hydrophobic surface with no structure to it can help determine in a kinesin molecule needs supports to be active.
    • if a mt is in a lipid area and it heats up, then the mt will fall apart. Can there be a way of determining the for es neededto break a mt using heated lipid molecules?
    • need to determine how long I can keep ATP and AF in the buckets before they can't be used anymore for experiments
    • what does the truncated end of our kinesin motors look like? do the ends like polar or non polar chemistries?
    • how long are the kinesin motors?
    • If casein is not a structural support, then a hydrophobic surface may work.
    • If casein is a structural support, then why not try gluten? Or even silicon nanoparticles.
