"Swimming Strokes of Microorganisms: Collective Motion by Molecular Motors" The beating patterns of sperm flagella and the breast-stroke like swimming strokes of ciliates are driven by the molecular motor dynein. This motor generates sliding forces between adjacent microtubule doublets within the axoneme, the motile cytoskeletal structure. To create regular, oscillatory beating patterns, the activities of the dyneins must be coordinated both spatially and temporally.
