Kinesin- which of the following are true?

Postby nickname » Fri Oct 01, 2010 9:21 pm

1. kinesin has a low processivity
2. kinesin molecules have a stiff neck region between the globular head and the tail.
3. each kinesin head has a tubuli-binding site and a nucleotide-binding site.
4. kinesin's cargo binds to the light chains of the kinesin molecule.
5. kinesin requires the energy produced from ATP hydrolysis to move its cargo.
6. kinesin moves its cargo toward the negative end of the microtubule.

thank u so much for your help!

I thought that 1,2,3,and 5 were the correct choice. However, my answer is incorrect.

I will really appreciate your help!

Thank you! :)
