Spontaneous oscillations of elastic filaments induced by molecular motors.
(The Royal SocietyJournal of the Royal Society, Interface, 2017-11)
It is known from the wave-like motion of microtubules in motility assays that the piconewton forces that motors produce can be sufficient to bend the filaments. In cellular phenomena such as cytosplasmic streaming, molecular ...
Elastohydrodynamic synchronization of adjacent beating flagella
(American Physical SocietyPhysical Review Fluids, 2016-11-01)
It is now well established that nearby beating pairs of eukaryotic flagella or cilia typically synchronize in phase. A substantial body of evidence supports the hypothesis that hydrodynamic coupling between the active ...
