Spontaneous symmetry breaking for geometrical trajectories of actin-based motility in three dimensions.

Abstract

Actin-based motility is important for many cellular processes. In this article we extend our previous studies of an actin-propelled circular disk in two dimensions to an actin-propelled spherical bead in three dimensions. We find that for an achiral load the couplings between the motion of the load and the actin network induce a series of bifurcations… (More)
