More than three hundred years later, engineers, scientists, and doctors are still trying to pick apart the nuts-and-bolts of skeletal and muscle movements and figure out how the actions of motor and cytoskeletal proteins such as actin and myosin lead to the contraction of muscle fibers, hoping a molecular understanding of motion may lead to new therapies and treatments for muscular disorders.
Along with actins, tubulins are abundant cytoskeletal proteins that support diverse cellular processes, including microtubule and microfilament structure and function (Lundin et al.
