Cell Organization & Cell Motility: Part 2: Force Generation by Actin Assembly: Theories and Experiments (46:16)

submitted by: scivee-team

The second part is devoted to understanding how the polymerization of actin can produce, which is a current area of research in our laboratory. Here, I cover theories for how polymerization might be used to produce forces, and our efforts to test these models using optical traps, atomic force microscopes, and nanofabricated devices.
