Caption: A field of reconstituted microtubule filaments (blue) visualized at high-resolution shows single molecules of dynein (green) blocked by She1 (magenta) bound along the microtubule track. Zoomed insets show an example of space-time plot analysis by Markus, Kalutkiewicz, and Lee (bottom left) and a cartoon of the specific blockage of dynein by She1 (top right).
