dynactin
Dynein activator complex that stimulates vesicle transport. Includes dynactin (160 kD) and polypeptides of 62, 50, 45, 37, and 32, the 45 kD (possibly actin-RPV) being the most abundant. All the subunits co-sediment with antibody to dynactin 160 and the complex behaves as a stable 20S multiprotein assembly. See centractin.
