Actin and Myosin

ID #1578

I don’t understand how myosin 1 can produce movement with only one head. Does the myosin attach to the vesicle and cause the vesicle to spin?

If there was only one motor protein on the vesicle, then it probably wouldn't be very useful. But if there are several hundred.... The point is, if you have multiple motors, then when one has lifted off, some other one attached.
