Random blebbing motion: A simple model linking cell structural properties to migration characteristics

Abstract:

If the plasma membrane of a cell is able to delaminate locally from its actin cortex a cellular bleb can be produced. Blebs are pressure driven protrusions, which are noteworthy for their ability to produce cellular motion. Starting from a general continuum mechanics description we restrict ourselves to considering cell and bleb shapes that maintain approximately spherical forms. From this assumption we obtain a tractable algebraic system for bleb formation. By including cell-substrate adhesi...
