Nonlinear model of microtubule dynamics and its impact on kinesin motion

Miljko Sataric
In this paper we elaborate the nonlinear model on ferroelectric properties of microtubules(MTs)and triggered by hydrolysis of GTP(guanosine triphosphate)followed by conversion of chemical energy into large conformational rotation of corresponding tubulin dimer.We atempted to elucidate some functional properties of microtubules pertaining kinesin motor protein on the basis of this elegant model.
