Self-assembly of a filament by curvature-inducing proteins

Abstract:

We explore a simplified macroscopic model of membrane shaping by means of curvature-sensing BAR proteins. Equations describing the interplay between the shape of a freely floating filament in a fluid and the adhesion kinetics of proteins are derived from mechanical principles. The constant curvature solutions that arise from this system are studied using weakly nonlinear analysis. We show that the stability of the filament’s shape is completely characterized by the parameters associated with ...
