My project aims at gaining a deeper insight into the stepping mechanism of dynein motor proteins. In the laboratory of Prof. Yale E. Goldman, I use single molecule polarized TIRF microscopy with super-resolution single particle tracking to determine orientation of dynein ring and rotation motions in the motor domain while its movement along microtubules.
