    Nature Chemical Biology, Published online: 18 February 2021; doi:10.1038/s41589-021-00740-7 High-performance engineered myosins robustly change speed or direction in response to an optical signal. In living cells, these motors localize to the tips of protrusions when illuminated and deliver molecular cargos.
