|In the living cell, filaments are typically crowded with molecular motors and cargo particles. Because of the mutual exclusion (or hardcore repulsion) between these particles, this overcrowding leads to a variety of cooperative phenomena and self-organized processes: build-up of traffic jams  ; active pattern formation   leading to steady states with spatially nonuniform density and flux patterns; and traffic phase transitions    between different steady states far from equilibrium. Nonequilibrium phase transitions also occur in filament gliding assays in which the motors are immobilized on a substrate surface and pull many filaments across this surface .|
