Research Subject

Integration of function of multiple motor protein molecules

Current Research

In order to gain an insight into the functional mechanism of single / multiple motor protein molecules, I have been developing the fluorescence imaging and optical trapping system with a nanometer / piconewton accuracy. I focus particulaly on skeletal muscle proteins, myosins and actins.
