MCB: Myosin V (green), a cellular motor protein, carries cargo within cells by moving along actin filaments (red). It takes 37-nanometer steps by placing one "foot" over the other, as revealed by a fluorophore tag (rainbow-colored oval). Image permission from Science Vol 300, No. 5628, 27 June 2003.
