Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Myosin molecular motors move along actin filaments to drive, for example, muscle contraction or the intracellular trafficking of vesicles. However, it has not been clear whether myosin V moves along actin filaments in a hand-over-hand or inchworm fashion. In their Perspective, Molloy and Veigel explain new work (Yildiz et al.) that provides evidence in support of the hand-over-hand model for how myosin V walks along actin.
