Mr. Maloney, a PhD student from the University of New Mexico, working in a lab in the Astronomy and Physics department. He sent me a drawing of a cartoon character he and colleagues made of this cellular enzyme. Apparently, a kinesin motor protein has...uh...feet-like extensions that fit into grooves along the microtubule path and are responsible for the movement of chromosomes during mitosis. (got that?)
So, this kinesin motor protein, named Kiney, wore green Converse runners and a gold chain necklace and carried a boom box - yo, he was some bad cruisin' rap dude!
They sent me some photos of Kiney at the lab - He looks like he's happy working there. see Kiney at lab
