The binding of Tetrahymena 30S dynein to bovine brain microtubules has been examined. The dynein was bound by its B-end or ATP sensitive site with a stoichiometry of 1 dynein arm per 6 tubulin dimers. Addition of ATP released virtually all the dynein from the surface of the microtubule. Following hydrolysis of the ATP, the dynein reassociated with the microtubule.
