Abstract

Here we have described simple and reproducible methods to observe kinesin-mediated vesicle and microtubule movements under defined conditions using video microscopy. We are optimistic that this assay will provide a useful tool to study kinesin function, regulation, and dynamic physical interactions with membranous organelles and microtubules.
