Members of the kinesin family of motor proteins are assembled from kinesin-related polypeptides that share conserved 'motor' domains linked to diverse 'tail' domains. Recent work suggests that tail diversity underlies the differences in quaternary structure observed among native kinesin holoenzymes.
