  • Intrinsic dynamic behavior of fascin in filopodia 

    Aratyn, Yvonne S.; Schaus, Thomas E.; Taylor, Edwin W.; Borisy, Gary G. (American Society for Cell Biology, 2007-08-01)
    Recent studies showed that the actin cross-linking protein, fascin, undergoes rapid cycling between filopodial filaments. Here, we used an experimental and computational approach to dissect features of fascin exchange and ...
  • Self-organization of actin filament orientation in the dendritic-nucleation/array-treadmilling model 

    Schaus, Thomas E.; Taylor, Edwin W.; Borisy, Gary G. (2006-11-16)
    The dendritic-nucleation/array-treadmilling model provides a conceptual framework for the generation of the actin network driving motile cells. We have incorporated it into a 2-D, stochastic computer model to study ...
