We explored the effect of advective bulk flow on the dynamics of membrane-bound protein patterns. We approach this question theoretically and experimentally by studying how Min protein patterns respond to bulk flow. more

Cytoskeletal structures play essential roles in many cellular processes, including intracellular transport, cell division and cell motility. The formation and regulation of these structures involves many types proteins that associate with the cytoskeletal filaments, to regulate their nucleation and polymerization, to crosslink them, and to exert mechanical forces on them. more
