The proteins that comprise many of these subfamilies utilize the energy from ATP hydrolysis to transport along microtubules. However, at least 2 kinesin subfamilies, the kinesin-13s and kinesin-14s, contain motors with microtubule-destabilizing activity (6–8). Detailed mechanistic studies of the microtubule-destabilizing activity exhibited by these motors have significantly contributed to our understanding of their cellular functions. In this chapter, we discuss assays for measuring the microtubule-destabilizing activity of kinesins both in a purified system and within the context of mammalian cells.

Protein phosphorylation is the most common posttranslational modification in mammalian cells, regulating critical cellular processes that include cell division, differentiation, growth, and cell–cell signaling as well as fast axonal transport (FAT). Evidence has accumulated that kinesin-1 phosphorylation plays a key regulatory role in kinesin-based FAT. Multiple kinase and phosphatase activities with the ability to regulate kinesin-1 function and FAT have been identified. Moreover, additional pathways are likely to exist for regulating FAT through reversible phosphorylation/dephosphorylation of specific motor protein subunits.
