Model of the cytolasmic dynein motor head. (A) Schematic of the dynein showing its three major structural components: a tail involved in carrying cargoes, binding to intermediate and light chains, and oligomerization with other dynein heads; an ATP-hydrolysing motor domain; and a microtubule binding stalk. (B) Theoretical model of the motor unit constructed from homology models of the six AAA+ units, C-domain, and the interdomain regions (IDRs). The model is coloured according to the schematic. (Panel B is adapted from ref. 2.)
