Structural changes in myosin power many types of cell motility including muscle contraction. Tilting of the myosin light chain domain (LCD) seems to be the final step in transducing the energy of ATP hydrolysis, amplifying small structural changes near the ATP binding site into nanometer-scale motions of the filaments. Here we used polarized fluorescence measurements from bifunctional rhodamine probes...
