【Significance】
Spontaneous formation of belt-like pattern of actomyosin motility system

Actin filaments slide along myosin molecules on the glass surface. When the concentration of actin filaments was raised to 0.5-1.0 mg/mL, we found that the filaments assembled spontaneously to form a belt-like winding pattern. The pattern formation accompanied by a spontaneous imbalance of concentration in this simple assay system was observed for the first time, indicating that these types of pattern formation may be caused by the intrinsic properties of actin filament even in vivo.
