Actin-based cellular protrusions are a ubiquitous feature of cell morphology, e.g., filopodia and microvilli, serving a huge variety of functions. Despite this, there is still no comprehensive model for the mechanisms that determine the geometry of these protrusions. We present here a detailed computational model that addresses a combination of multiple… CONTINUE READING
