• proliferation
  • While it is abundant in extracellular matrices, hyaluronan also contributes to tissue hydrodynamics, movement and proliferation of cells, and participates in a number of cell surface receptor interactions, notably those including its primary receptors, CD44 and RHAMM. (wikipedia.org)
  • wounds
  • Since alginate dressings require moisture to function effectively, they cannot be used for dry wounds and those covered with hard necrotic tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • mice
  • Representative immunoblots from two mice in each group are shown at the top of C. The mean VEGF protein level in the granulation tissue of WBB6F1+/+ mice is set to 1.0. (nih.gov)
  • The role of matrix metalloproteinase-13 (MMP-13) in granulation tissue growth was studied in subcutaneously implanted viscose cellulose sponge in MMP-13 knockout (Mmp13−/−) and wild type (WT) mice. (harvard.edu)
  • Granulation tissue in Mmp13−/− mice showed delayed organization of myofibroblasts, increased microvascular density at day 14, and virtual absence of large vessels at day 21. (harvard.edu)
  • analysis
  • The tissue samples were harvested at time points day 7, 14 and 21 and subjected to histological analysis and gene expression profiling. (harvard.edu)
  • layer
  • In an incomplete lesion, a layer of tissue surrounding the bronchus remains intact and can keep the air in the airway, preventing it from leaking into the areas surrounding the airways. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscle
  • Because the lower leg of the horse does not "have much muscle or underlying tissue, capillaries and small blood vessels in these areas will develop the proud flesh. (horsehints.org)
  • important
  • Early diagnosis is important to prevent complications, which include stenosis (narrowing) of the airway, respiratory tract infection, and damage to the lung tissue. (wikipedia.org)
