  • Tissue
  • Elastin is also an important load-bearing tissue in the bodies of vertebrates and used in places where mechanical energy is required to be stored. (wikipedia.org)
  • Comparison between fresh and digested tissues shows that, at 35% strain, a minimum of 48% of the arterial load is carried by elastin, and a minimum of 43% of the change in stiffness of arterial tissue is due to the change in elastin stiffness. (wikipedia.org)
  • emphysema
  • Other associated defects in elastin include Marfan syndrome , emphysema caused by α 1 -antitrypsin deficiency, atherosclerosis , Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome , Menkes syndrome , pseudoxanthoma elasticum , and Williams syndrome . (wikipedia.org)
  • valine
  • These hydrophobic domains, consisting overwhelmingly of alanine, proline, glycine, and valine, tend towards instability and disorderliness, ensuring that the elastin does not lock into any specific confirmation. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • It is found in elastin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Extrapolating from an in-vitro elastin model under physiological conditions, the researchers found that the ratios of IDP to DESP corresponded extremely closely with values based on both a calculation of a theoretical Chichibabin pyridine synthesis of 3 mol allysine and 1 mol ammonia, and reported ratios of 2,3,5- to 3,4,5-trisubstituted pyridine ratios of a Chichibabin pyridine synthesis involving phenylacetaldehyde. (wikipedia.org)
  • They concluded with relative certainty that the pyridine cross-links found in elastin were, in fact, due to an in-vivo Chichibabin pyridine synthesis of ammonia and allysine. (wikipedia.org)
  • name
  • Physically, the album received two versions, Prismatic and Elastin, the words that originated the name Pristin. (wikipedia.org)
