Molecular Gears: A Misleading Analogy

DyneinFrank Sherwin provides the Wednesday article, Muscle Motion Discoveries Challenge Evolutionism. The subject – once you get past the talk of bat ears and echolocation – is the protein dynein, which acts as a “molecular motor” and is involved in the function of muscles. We previously encountered dynein in October, in a Brian Thomas article that compared Lis1 (a protein that regulates the activity of dynein) to a “molecular clutch.” Now it seems that dynein also has “gears” – Sherwin says: Continue reading
