Actin polymerization front propagation in a comb-reaction system

24 Feb 2015  ·  Iomin A., Zaburdaev V., Pfohl T. ·

Anomalous transport and reaction dynamics are considered by providing the theoretical grounds for the possible experimental realization of actin polymerization in comb-like geometry. Two limiting regimes are recovered, depending on the concentration of reagents (magnesium and actin)... These are both the failure of the reaction front propagation and a finite speed corresponding to the Fisher-KPP long time asymptotic regime. read more
