A mathematical model for simulation of actin cable contraction, during wound closure for Drosophila embryo, which contains an extra term in addition to the curvature flow is developed. The basic mathematical model introduced and validated in [27] is extended in order to include the non-homogeneous wound healing or non-homogeneous dorsal closure [52] .
