Collective motion of driven semiflexible filaments tuned by soft repulsion and stiffness

Sept. 25, 2019

Jeffrey M. Moore, Tyler N. Thompson, Matthew A. Glaser, Meredith D. Betterton (2019). arXiv: 1909.11805 . Download In active matter systems, self-propelled particles can self-organize to undergo collective motion, leading to persistent dynamical behavior out of equilibrium. In cells, cytoskeletal filaments and motor proteins exhibit activity and self-organization into complex...

Bound-state diffusion due to binding to flexible polymers in a selective biofilter

Aug. 25, 2019

We demonstrate that bound mobility via tethered diffusion can be engineered into a synthetic gel using protein fragments derived from the nuclear pore complex.

Length regulation of microtubule antiparallel overlaps by molecular motors

Aug. 25, 2019

We develop a theory of steady-state overlap length which depends on the filament plus-end motor concentration, determined by a balance between motor arrival and motor departure in the absence of motor-driven sliding.
