The spatial and temporal regulation of motor-based transport is essential to ensure precise cargo delivery in all cell types. New light has been shed on mechanisms controlling cargo-motor interactions, with the finding that NMDA-cargo is released from KIF17 kinesin following motor phosphorylation by CaMKII near the synapse.
