Abstract: R49.00010 : Dynamics of Active Rouse Chains
10:12 AM–10:24 AM
We consider how active forces modeled as non-thermal random noise affect the average dynamical properties of a Rouse polymer. As the power spectrum of the noise is not known we keep the analytical treatment as generic as possible and then present results for a few examples of active noise. We discuss the connection between our results and recent experimental studies of dynamics of labeled DNA telomeres in living cells, and propose new chromatin tracking experiments that will allow one to determine the statistical properties of the active forces associated with chromatin remodeling processes.
