Simple qualitative dynein model in Nose-Hoover framework

Josef Rosenberg, Milada Krejčová


The presented paper is devoted to studying the dynein molecular motor and its stochastic description. The model aims to obtain good results comparable to literature sources qualitatively. We choose the Hoover-Holian oscillator to describe the dynein behaviour of each of its legs. It can catch the stochastic movement produced by Brownian motion and can be modified to simulate a load.
