Yet, the validity of small-molecule studies is intimately tied to the specificity of the applied compounds, thus imposing a great challenge to screens for novel inhibitors. Here, we applied a chemical-genetics approach to render kinesin motor proteins sensitive to inhibition by the well-characterized small molecule S-Trityl-l-cysteine (STLC). STLC specifically inhibits the kinesin Eg5 through binding to a known allosteric site within the motor domain. Transfer of this allosteric binding site into the motor domain of the human kinesins Kif3A and Kif4A sensitizes them towards STLC. Single-molecule microscopy analyses confirmed that STLC inhibits the movement of chimeric but not wild-type Kif4A along microtubules. Thus, our proof-of-concept study revealed that this chemical-genetic approach provides a powerful strategy to specifically inhibit kinesins in vitro for which small-molecule inhibitors are not yet available.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/36992"/> <dc:creator>Mayer, Thomas U.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Hund, Corinna</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Mayer, Thomas U.</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-01-31T06:54:03Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>Chemical Genetics Approach to Engineer Kinesins with Sensitivity towards a Small-Molecule Inhibitor of Eg5</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
