Eukaryotic systems self-organise by using molecular railways to shuttle specific sets of molecular components to specific locations. In this way, cells are enabled to become larger, more complex and more varied, subtle and effective in their activities. Because of the fundamental importance of molecular railways in eukaryotic systems, understanding how these railways work is an important research goal. Mechanochemical cell biology is a newly circumscribed subject area that concerns itself with the molecular and cell biological mechanisms of motorised directional transport in living systems.
