ABSTRACT: We deal with a mathematical model related to amoeba motion. The model was proposed by Tamiki Umeda who focused attention to the interaction of F-actin and G-actin in a cell. In this talk, we consider mainly the existence and behavior of spherically symmetric solutions for a simplified Umeda's model.
