Abstract

Intracellular transport of organelles and proteins is driven by multiple ATP-dependent processes. Recently in Cell, Guo et al. (2014) developed a technique, force-spectrum microscopy, to measure the forces exerted by these processes, demonstrating that large motion of cellular components can be produced by random ATP-dependent fluctuations within the cytoplasm.
