  • fibres
  • The unlinked tropoelastin molecules are not normally available in the cell, since they become crosslinked into elastin fibres immediately after their synthesis by the cell and during their export into the extracellular matrix . (wikipedia.org)

  • mechanical
  • 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)
  • important
  • Elastin serves an important function in arteries as a medium for pressure wave propagation to help blood flow and is particularly abundant in large elastic blood vessels such as the aorta . (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • It is found in the epiglottis (part of the larynx), the pinnae (the external ear flaps of many mammals). (wikipedia.org)
  • usually
  • Several flying mammals like colugos and flying squirrels have uropatagia, usually similar to the arrangement in most bats, connecting the hindlegs to the tail. (wikipedia.org)
  • Kangaroos have small chest development and so require less water to breathe than placental mammals, which usually must expand a diaphragm. (wikipedia.org)
  • function
  • It is concluded that conformational disorder is a constitutive feature of elastin structure and function. (wikipedia.org)
  • The primary function of cartilage in mammals is to form a model for later growth of the bony skeleton, but some parts of the skeleton will retain the cartilage form into adulthood. (fsu.edu)
  • among
  • Horse eyes are among the largest of any land mammal, and are positioned on the sides of the head (that is, they are positioned laterally). (wikipedia.org)
  • hair
  • They form the hair (including wool), stratum corneum, horns, nails, claws and hooves of mammals and the hagfish slime threads. (wikipedia.org)

  • Mucus is a gel consisting of a polymer network that functions as a protective layer for the integument and mucosal surfaces of both elementary animals and mammals. (wikipedia.org)

  • tissue
  • A method is disclosed for inhibiting intimal hyperplasia in a warm-blooded mammal which comprises administering topically at the site and time of a vascular injury induced by arterial intervention in said mammal a small but inhibitorily effective amount of tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) sufficient to inhibit said intimal hyperplasia. (google.com)
  • 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)
  • Tissue specific variants of elastin are produced by alternative splicing of the tropoelastin gene. (wikipedia.org)
  • In mammals, the skin is an organ of the integumentary system made up of multiple layers of ectodermal tissue, and guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs. (wikipedia.org)
  • birds
  • If mammals are infected by cercariae (instead of birds), the parasites die in the skin being entrapped by immune response. (wikipedia.org)
  • Based on recent observation by 3D imaging techniques (ultramicroscopy and micro-CT), schistosomula appear to migrate preferably through the white matter of the spinal cord in both birds and mammals. (wikipedia.org)
