Asymptotic solutions of the Oosawa model for the length distribution of biofilaments.


Nucleated polymerisation phenomena are general linear growth processes that underlie the formation of a range of biofilaments in nature, including actin and tubulin that are key components of the cellular cytoskeleton. The conventional theoretical framework for describing this process is the Oosawa model that takes into account homogeneous nucleation… (More)
