On this episode of ID the Future, hear a discussion about a video recently released by Discovery Institute — The Workhouse of the Cell: Kinesin — that reveals the awe-inspiring inner workings of the cell. Kinesins are motorized transport machines that move cellular materials to their correct locations in the cell so they can perform their functions. Kinesins have two feet, or “globular heads,” that literally walk, one foot over another. Known as the “workhorses of the cell,” kinesins can carry cargo many times their own size. Watch the video at YouTube.
