Force-Induced Dynamical Properties of Multiple Cytoskeletal Filaments Are Distinct from that of Single Filaments - Figure 4


<p>(a) Plot of <i>T</i><sub>coll</sub> versus obtained in the bounded phase, for microtubules. Black squares are for , , , and red circles are for , , M (for microtubule parameters, M). While, for , , values of <i>T</i><sub>coll</sub> are obtained at four different concentrations (all greater than ) M (brown down triangles), M (magenta bullets), M (green up triangles), and M (blue filled squares). (b) Two simulated time-traces of the wall-position for a single microtubule, for parameters: (i) , M (black dots); (ii) pN, M (red squares). (c) An experimental trajectory (reproduced from <a href="" target="_blank">[46]</a>) of length versus time for a single microtubule under zero force (Copyright (1994) by the American Physical Society). (d) Three different time-traces of the wall-position for two microtubules () from our simulations. Parameters are: pN, M. (e) Experimental trajectories (reproduced from <a href="" target="_blank">[25]</a>) of a bundle of multiple microtubules under harmonic force – this force, shown in y-axis, is proportional to microtubules' extensions (<i>x</i>) (Copyright (2008) by National Academy of Sciences, U.S.A).</p
