Nucleotide-dependent movement of native microtubules (nMTs) in squid axoplasm has biochemical and biophysical characteristics of kinesin-driven motility. However, the high vanadate and N-ethylmaleimide sensitivity and the velocity demonstrate that the properties of the native motile system differ considerably from those of purified kinesin preparations.
