ENZYME entry: EC 5.6.1.2

Accepted Name
Dynein ATPase.
Alternative Name(s)
Dynein adenosine 5'-triphosphatase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + H(2)O + a dynein associated with a microtubule at position (n) <=> ADP + phosphate + a dynein associated with a microtubule at position (n-1, toward the minus end)
Comment(s)
  • A multisubunit protein complex associated with microtubules.
  • Hydrolysis of ATP provides energy for the movement of organelles (endosomes, lysosomes, mitochondria) along microtubules to the centrosome toward the microtubule's minus end.
  • It also functions in the movement of eukaryotic flagella and cilia.
  • It consists of two heavy chains (about 500 kDa), three-four intermediate chains (about 70 kDa) and four light chains (about 50 kDa).
  • Formerly EC 3.6.1.33 and EC 3.6.4.2.
