Fronts and waves of actin polymerization in a bistability-based mechanism of circular dorsal ruffles Academic Article uri icon


  • Circular dorsal ruffles (CDRs) are important for the vesicular uptake of extracellular matter, but the basis of their wave dynamics is not understood. Here, the authors propose and experimentally test a bistable reaction-diffusion system, which they show accounts for the…
