Original Abstract

The cytoskeleton plays a vital role in intracellular transmission of mechanical signals. The computational model of cytoskeleton based on tensegrity principle presented here has tension supporting cables representing microfilaments, compression supporting struts representing microtubules and springs in tension representing intermediate filaments. The nucleoskeleton and centrosome modelled as self-stabilised regular truncated tensegrity structures aimed to withstand high prestress. Integrins connecting cell with extracellular matrix are also considered to define cell behaviour in vivo. In this way, a more realistic computational model of cytoskeleton for different cell types could be designed for better understanding of respective cell motility and intracellular transmission of mechanical signals.
