Vesicle Motility

The George Langford lab at Dartmouth College and at the MBL, Woods Hole, Mass. specializes in the characterization of myosin motors, specifically neuronal Myosin V from the longfin squid (Loligo pealii), and a novel non-muscle Myosin II-like myosin motor from clam eggs (Spissula solidissima). Both squid axonal cells and clam egg extracts yield a high level of ER vesicle motility on both actin and microtubules. Our lab uses video-enhanced multimode microscopy to study Myosin and Kinesin dependent motility.

Attention Educators: Cell biology movies are available for classroom use by contacting the Langford lab at Dartmouth College.
