The growth of an actin network against an obstacle that stimulates branching locally is studied using several variants of a kinetic rate model based on the orientation-dependent number density of filaments. The model emphasizes the effects of branching and capping on the density of free filament ends. The variants differ in their treatment of side versus end branching and dimensionality, and assume that new branches are generated by existing branches (autocatalytic behavior) or independently of… CONTINUE READING
