“Video of myosin V movement along actin”
Video of myosin V movement along actin
Jan 16, 2003
- This is a wonderful (if somewhat grainy) video of the movement of actin and
myosin that can be found under ?Myosin News?. The video is part of a much
greater site on myosin with a huge amount of information available covering the
molecular, physiological and anatomical research on myosin. The movie does not
come with any information other than the title, but to get to the movie you have to click on the link that also includes a link to the research that has been
done on myosin.
- Type of Material:
- Video <br />Interactive Lesson/Tutorial
- Recommended Uses:
- Great addition to a section on actin/myosin interactions to see it 'live'
- Technical Requirements:
- Netscape 4.7
- Identify Major Learning Goals:
- To observe the interaction of actin and myosin
- Target Student Population:
- College, med school, graduate
- Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
- The viewer needs to know what is actually happening to understand the
interactions that are occuring.
- The material is clearly laid out, accurate and integrates content well.
- This video is part of an excellent and detailed site on myosin
- The video itself is amazingly clear and would be excellent to show students how
these molecules interact.
- The user would want to make sure that they had some additional information for the students who are viewing the movie as it plays with no explanation of what
if going on. However, the site has all the information about the movie in other
- Links are excellent
- Provide a good range of information to aid student understanding
- The rest of the site is an amazing source of information on the current research in this field
- The links are all complete and so the site is easy to navigate
- The ability to make the image larger would be an asset
- Other Issues and Comments:
- This is a grainy video clip showing actin and myosin interacting. It is not for the beginner biologist (nor the nonmajor) as it does not really cover the
basics of this interaction nor does it have any labels to indicate what the
images actually are. This site is great for advanced students, graduate or
