Abstract

It is well-known that the morphogenesis of multi-cellular organism such as sea chestnut and frog, the cleavage after fertilization, is dominated by some types of proteins such as actin microfilament. However, if these proteins are not delivered to the collect places in cell, accurate cell divisions can not be achieved. Computational fluid-dynamics with a higher-order of accuracy, approximate solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation, reveals the reason why these proteins for structural development can be carried to appropriate positions.
