User:Steven J. Koch/Kinesin Aggregation

From OpenWetWare

Steve Koch 01:50, 8 May 2009 (EDT): I always found the kinesin aggregation and strong inhibition by ATP to be fascinating, for both technological reasons (how to stabilize kinesin) and also perhaps biological (not knowing anything, is it possible that kinesin aggregation in living cells is ever a problem?). In regards to both of these, perhaps osmotic stress will have an impact on kinesin stability? We did publish the ATP-inhibition of thermomyces aggregation in the Koch_Lab:Publications#In_George_Bachand.27s_lab_with_Susan_Rivera.2C_fungal_kinesin_from_Thermomyces_lanuginosus Rivera et al. paper. But a lot of other data I and Amanda Trent took are buried in our notebooks from 5 or 6 years ago. I recently dug a couple documents up, which I'll link here:
