    • History-Dependent Depolymerization of Actin Filaments 

      JAIN, I; LACOSTE, D; PANDA, D; PADINHATEER, R (AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2012)
      Depolymerizing cytoskeletal filaments are involved in cell division, cell motility, and other cellular functions. Understanding the dynamics of depolymerization is as important as understanding the dynamics of polymerization. ...
    • Random Hydrolysis Controls the Dynamic Instability of Microtubules 

      PADINHATEERI, R; KOLOMEISKY, AB; LACOSTE, D (CELL PRESS, 2012)
      Uncovering mechanisms that control the dynamics of microtubules is fundamental for our understanding of multiple cellular processes such as chromosome separation and cell motility. Building on previous theoretical work on ...
    • Role of ATP-Hydrolysis in the Dynamics of a Single Actin Filament 

      RANJITH, P; MALLICK, K; JOANNY, JF; LACOSTE, D (CELL PRESS, 2010)
      We study the stochastic dynamics of growth and shrinkage of single actin filaments taking into account insertion, removal, and ATP hydrolysis of subunits either according to the vectorial mechanism or to the random mechanism. ...
