The latest knowledge on molecular motors is vital for the understanding of a wide range of biological and medical topics: cell motility, organelle movement, virus transport, developmental asymmetry, myopathies, and sensory defects are all related to the function or malfunction of these minute molecular machines. Since there is a vast amount of information on motor mechanisms and potential biomedical and nanobiotechnological applications, this handbook fulfills the need for a collection of current research results on the functionality, regulation, and interactions of cytoskeletal, DNA, and rotary motors. Here, leading experts present a concise insight, ranging from atomic structure, biochemistry, and biophysics to cell biology, developmental biology and pathology. Basic principles and applications make this book a valuable reference tool for researchers, professionals, and clinicians alike - all set to become a "classic" in the years to come.

Up-to-date knowledge of molecular motors is vital for understanding of a wide range of biological and medical questions. Cell motility, organelle movements, developmental asymmetry, myopathies, and sensory defects are all related to the function or malfunction of these minute molecular machines.
A vast body of information in motor mechanisms and potential biomedical and nanobiotechnological applications has been accumulated in recent years.
This handbook summarizes these advances and offers a collection of cutting-edge research on the functionality, regulation, and interactions of a wide range of biological motors. Written by leading experts in the field, insights into a broad range of features ranging from atomic structures, biochemistry, and biophysics to cell biology, developmental biology, and pathology are provided. The treatment of both basic principles as well as biomedical and technical applications makes this volume a valuable resource for researchers, professionals, and clinicians alike - a "Classic" in the years to come.Review:
"...essential reading for graduate students in the field of cell motility and molecular motors...recommend it enthusiastically..."
Nature Cell Biology, Vol. 6, 2004
"Molecular Motors is an excellent source book that provides much-needed up-to-date introduction and an important snapshot of current knowledge of a rapidly expanding field of biology."
Edgar Meyhofer, Department of mechanical Engineering, University of Michigan, Advanced Materials, September3, 2004
"...a unique collection of chapters written by leaders who are well versed with the field...Overall, the book will be an excellent source for both professional and general readers, providing a wide range of in-depth insights into the structure, mechanism, function, and role of molecular motors in the life cycle of a cell."
Quarterly Review of Biology, March-May 2005
