Unformatted text preview: to deliver the cargo vesicle? (1 sec / 3 um) x (6 x 10 2 um / 1) x (1 min / 60 sec) = 0.33 x 10 1 min c. What three cellular parameters might influence the rate of cargo movement? Availability of an energy source; one ATP required for each kinesin step. Frictional resistance of the environment; viscosity of cytoplasm and size (bulk) of the cargo d. After kinesin motor proteins and dyneins transport their cargos to one end of a microtubule, how do you suppose these proteins get back to their origin? Kinesins carry dyneins back to the plus end of MTs and dyneins carry kinesins back to the minus ends of MTs....
