Images

A 3 um x 3 um x 3 um actomyosin network snapshot. Actin filaments are colored in red, and myosin II motors and cross-linking proteins are colored in blue and green, respectively. From [1].



The same snapshot as above, with filament segments colored by their angle with respect to the XY plane. Unipolar domains form simulataneously with contraction. From [1].


Videos

A 1 um x 1 um x 1 um actomyosin network trajectory over 2000 s of network evolution. Actin filaments are colored in red, and myosin II motors and cross-linking proteins are colored in blue and green, respectively. From [1].


The same trajectory as above, with filament plus ends marked by black beads. Unipolar ordering forms simulataneously with contraction. From [1].
