Dyneins are microtubule-associated motor protein complexes composed of several heavy, light, and intermediate chains.

The dynein heavy chains (DNAHs) are responsible for force production and ATPase activity and contain a highly conserved catalytic domain with 4 P-loop consensus motifs involved in nucleotide binding.

Two major classes of dyneins, axonemal dyneins and cytoplasmic dyneins, have been identified.
