Myosin is an actin-based molecular motor that functions in many cellular processes. A novel myosin (Myo19) is associated with mitochondrial, and functions in the movement and dynamics of the mitochondrial network. The image shows a cultured cell with this novel myosin (yellow), actin (purple), and DNA (white).
