Medium-power view in the subpleural fibroelastotic region revealing elastic fiber
deposition in relation to the alveolar walls, with intervening collagen deposition (elastic Van Gieson stain, original magnification X100).
The topics include the assembly and properties of elastic fibers
, the biomolecular regulation of elastic matrix regeneration and repair, scaffold and biomechanical transductive approaches to elastic tissue engineering, sourcing and manipulating stem cells for elastin regeneration applications, and regulating elastogenesis using proteoglycans.
Elastin is made from its precursor molecule tropoelastin, which forms elastic fibers
after key steps involving the enzyme lysyl oxidase-like 1 (LOXL1) and glycoprotein fibulin-5 (FBLN5).
Sea-island and split-type conjugate fibers have been used for making ultrafine fibers, side-by-side conjugate fibers for elastic fibers
, and sheath/core fibers for low-melting adhesive fibers.
Previous animal UV irradiations have shown changes in elastic fiber
structure in animal skin .
Elastase breaks down clastin, an elastic fiber
, that together with collagen, determines the mechanical properties of connective tissue.
Although the same major components -- silica sand, synthetic fibers, elastic fiber
and granulated rubber and wax -- are present in every Cushion Track surface, including across town at Hollywood Park, the combination of the elements is custom designed to meet the weather conditions at each track.
Dermal fibroblasts deposit abnormal elastic fiber
aggregates, interestingly not accompanied by mineralization, when cultured in the presence of PXE sera (14).
Recent research suggests that abnormalities of microfibrillar fibers, a component of the body's elastic fiber
system, may be significantly related to the cause or origin of the syndrome (Godfrey et al.
Photomicrograph of elastic fiber
(far right) won first prize in Nikon's 17th Annual Small World Competition.
The images were transferred to a monitor LG Flatron 1752t to assess the elastic fiber
Moreover, elastic fiber
staining showed increasing number of coarser elastic fibers
in the dermis.
T400' fiber is a new melt-spun elastic fiber
from INVISTA based on multicomponent technology that revolutionizes the comfort hand wrinkle resistance and easy care of contemporary fabrics.
The cutaneous findings of CL may be striking, but the elastic fiber
network is even more important for pulmonary and cardiovascular function.
The first track to act on orders from the legislature that California's five major thoroughbred tracks install synthetic surfaces by the end of 2007, Hollywood Park spent more than $8 million on an English-made composition called Cushion Track, a composite of synthetic fibers, elastic fiber
and granulated rubber, coated with a wax blend and mixed with silica.
