  1. pmc Mechanical properties of Xenopus egg cytoplasmic extracts
    M T Valentine
    Department of Physics and Division of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
    Biophys J 88:680-9. 2005
    ..We explore the impact of rheology on actin-dependent cytoplasmic contraction, and find that although microtubules modulate contractile forces in vitro, their interactions are not purely mechanical...
  2. pmc Colloid surface chemistry critically affects multiple particle tracking measurements of biomaterials
    M T Valentine
    Department of Physics, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Biophys J 86:4004-14. 2004
    ..Our results establish that controlling colloid-protein interactions is crucial to the successful application of multiple particle tracking techniques to reconstituted protein networks, cytoplasm, and cells...

    I Y Wong
    Department of Physics and DEAS, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Phys Rev Lett 92:178101. 2004
    ..By directly imaging hundreds of particles over 20 min, we determine this anomalous subdiffusion is due to the dynamics of infrequent and large jumps particles make between distinct pores in the network...

    M L Gardel
    Department of Physics and DEAS, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Phys Rev Lett 91:158302. 2003
    ..Longitudinal fluctuations of the filaments increase the elastic modulus between 0.1 and 30 rad/sec at length scales up to the filament persistence length; this is probed by two-particle microrheology...
