Rossana Virginia Rojas Molina: Membrane budding dynamics by diffusion and kinetic recruitment of proteins

Abstract: Due to the fluid nature of biological membranes, proteins are able to diffuse along the membrane surface. Additionally, several processes of vesicle formation require protein recruitment.  We discuss, on one hand, the implications of fixed membrane shapes in protein diffusion, and on the other hand, the effects of protein diffusion and recruitment in membrane shape transformation. 

This talk is part of the Mechanics Lunch Seminar series. That means 20min talks plus discussion in an informal setting.
