Motor proteins and movement
The cell skeleton forms a scaffold, along which motor proteins can move. These proteins convert the chemical energy of ATP-hydrolysis into mechanical energy. Movement is uni-directional, either from minus to plus or vice versa. The most important systems are microfilament/myosin and microtubule/kinesin and -dynamin.
