Solvable model for polymorphic dynamics of biofilaments
Physical Review E
We investigate an analytically tractable toy model for thermally induced polymorphic dynamics of cooperatively rearranging biofilaments - like microtubules. The proposed 4 -block model, which can be seen as a coarse-grained approximation of the full polymorphic tube model, permits a complete analytical treatment of all thermodynamic properties including correlation functions and angular fourier mode distributions. Due to its mathematical tractability the model straightforwardly leads to somedoi:10.1103/physreve.85.031903 pmid:22587119 fatcat:5zqu54exercurmbbw4sw6xntny
