Myosin, muscle and motility

On our knowledge and understanding of the atomic resolution structure and mechanisms of action of the motor protein myosin


It is 50 years since the proposal of the sliding filament hypothesis of muscular contraction in May 1954. This meeting will report recent developments on our knowledge and understanding of the atomic resolution structure and mechanisms of action of the motor protein myosin. Besides myosin II which has a central role in muscle, there are many other classes of myosin. We will be concerned with cellular processes and movements, for example muscular contraction, endocytosis, neuronal vesicular transport and hearing, in which myosins play an integral role, both from a structural viewpoint and from that of chemical to mechanical energy transduction. Understanding cellular events involving myosin has been a driving force in the development and application of biophysical techniques such as synchrotron radiation and the manipulation and study of single molecules.
