A contribution to the mathematical biophysics of cell growth and shapes: II
- 30 Downloads
A theoretical study of the growing nerve cell filopodium is made using the assumptions of volume constancy, cylindrical shape, and substrate track of an earlier paper, but assuming additionally that a retarding force per unit area proportional to the rate of elongation is also acting. Equations of elongation for two different cases are derived.
