A fluid mechanical hypothesis for macromolecular transport in living cells: I.

Abstract

A fluid mechanical process generating controllable steady streaming is introduced as a model for explanation of specific molecular transport processes in living cells. Intracellular organelles, attached to contractile cytoplasmic fibrils and executing simultaneous oscillations and volume pulsations, are envisioned as the driving mechanisms for this… (More)
