This book draws together recent data on both cytoplasmic and flagellar dyneins and the proteins they interact with, to give the reader a clear picture of what is currently known about the structure and mechanics of these remarkable macro-molecular machines. Each chapter is written by active researchers, with a focus on currently used biophysical, b
