Biological rhythm underlying expansion-contraction systems in amoeboid movements

Associate Professor,Graduate School of Medicine,Yamaguchi University

Organisms are equipped with regulatory systems that produce a variety of spatio-temporal rhythms such as body segments and circadian rhythms.

Amoeboid movement is a gmovingh biological rhythm, which shows anterior expansion and posterior contraction repeatedly.

The understanding of the mechanism should lead to future technologies such as autonomously-controlled micro machinery.

I am planning to reveal the mechanism of biological rhythm underlying amoeboid movements using the combination of mathematical models and observations of molecular dynamics and migrating forces in living cells.
