Titin Kinase Our muscles are controlled at the nanoscale by molecular motors that pull to generate a force. In this video we are introduced to titin kinase, a protein that sits between muscle fibers and detects when there is force imbalance - the muscles are being strained too much. In response, the titin kinase signals to produce more muscle.
Proteins are encoded in our DNA and do all the ‘work’, controlling all sorts of different processes - some act as motors (see my previous posts on molecular motors here), some regulate the flow of particles across a membrane and others detect specific flavours.
