Molecular motors: a theorist's perspective.
Individual molecular motors, or motor proteins, are enzymatic molecules that convert chemical energy, typically obtained from the hydrolysis of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), into mechanical work andExpand

Phase diagram of one-dimensional driven lattice gases with open boundaries
We consider the asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) with open boundaries and other driven stochastic lattice gases of particles entering, hopping and leaving a one- dimensional lattice. TheExpand

The force exerted by a molecular motor.
The stochastic driving force exerted by a single molecular motor (e. g., a kinesin, or myosin) moving on a periodic molecular track (microtubule, actin filament, etc.) is discussed from a generalExpand

ATP hydrolysis stimulates large length fluctuations in single actin filaments.
Polymerization dynamics of single actin filaments is investigated theoretically using a stochastic model that takes into account the hydrolysis of ATP-actin subunits, the geometry of actin filamentExpand

Asymmetric simple exclusion model with local inhomogeneity
We study a totally asymmetric simple exclusion model with open boundary conditions and a local inhomogeneity in the bulk. It consists of a one-dimensional lattice with particles hoppingExpand

Single-molecule analysis of DNA-protein complexes using nanopores
We present a method for rapid measurement of DNA-protein interactions using voltage-driven threading of single DNA molecules through a protein nanopore. Electrical force applied to individualExpand

A simple kinetic model describes the processivity of myosin-v.
Myosin-V is a motor protein responsible for organelle and vesicle transport in cells. Recent single-molecule experiments have shown that it is an efficient processive motor that walks along actinExpand

Molecular motors and the forces they exert
The stochastic driving force that is exerted by a single molecular motor (e.g., a kinesin, or myosin protein molecule) moving on a periodic molecular track (such as a microtubule, actin filament,Expand

Periodic sequential kinetic models with jumping, branching and deaths
Motivated by recent applications to experiments on processive molecular motors (i.e., protein molecules that drag loads along linear, periodic molecular filaments), the analysis of Derrida (J. Stat.Expand
