• structural
  • The skin's healing process is driven by these cells, which race to repair skin by making a scar or replenishing collagen to rebuild the structural integrity of the skin. (sharecare.com)
  • The peculiar hierarchical structure of the tendon, a highly anisotropic tissue, in which collagen fibrils assemble in parallel bundles, is difficult to restore since it is organized as an ensemble of structural units at increasing size levels, responsible for its remarkable biofunctional properties. (frontiersin.org)
  • Homocysteine degrades and inhibits the formation of the three main structural components of arteries: collagen, elastin and proteoglycans. (wikipedia.org)
  • fibrils
  • There is inhibition of the mitotic activity of fibroblasts resulting in reduction of collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis but probably the earliest evidence of dermal atrophy is a reduction in the diameter of the fibrils and then the collagen bundles become atrophic and separated.

  • stimulate
  • Highly concentrated botanicals, minerals, herbal extracts, vitamins and natural moisturizers penetrate deeply to stimulate collagen renewal and cellular replenishment. (anti-wrinkle-serum.com)
  • Radio frequency skin tightening (RF) is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • synthesis
  • A team of Japanese researchers studied passion fruit, which contains 70 milligrams of vitamin C in 1 cup, for its ability to assist with collagen synthesis. (sfgate.com)
  • In findings published in the "Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry" in 2010, the researchers concluded that a compound called piceatannol, present in passion fruit seeds -- which are edible -- promotes collagen synthesis. (sfgate.com)
  • tendon
  • Low resolution structure and packing investigations of collagen crystalline domains in tendon using Synchrotron Radiation X-rays, Structure factors determination, evaluation of Isomorphous Replacement methods and other modeling. (wikipedia.org)
  • formation
  • Copper is an essential trace mineral that assists with the metabolism of ascorbic acid, or vitamin C. It works in conjunction with vitamin C toward the maturation of collagen and the formation of elastin. (sfgate.com)
