  • The study of motor protein dynamics within cytoskeletal networks is of high interest to physicists and biologists to understand how the dynamics and properties of individual motors lead to cooperative effects and control of overall network behaviour. Here, we report a method to detect and track muscular myosin II filaments within an actin network tethered to supported lipid bilayers. Based on the characteristic shape of myosin II filaments, this automated tracking routine allowed us to follow… CONTINUE READING
