Structure and dynamics of cross-linked actin networks

Abstract

The actin cytoskeleton, a network of protein-polymers, is responsible for the mechanical stability of cells. This biopolymer network is also crucial for processes that require spatial and temporal variations in the network structure such as cell migration, division and intracellular transport. The cytoskeleton therefore has to combine structural integrity… (More)
