Abstract

In this issue of Structure, Roberts et al. discuss how cryo-electron microscopy single particle reconstructions of the microtubule-based motor dynein reveal dramatic nucleotide-dependent conformational changes. They provide insight into dynein force generation and hint at shared mechanisms with other AAA+ unfoldases.
