Pentoxifylline modifies three-dimensional collagen lattice model contraction and expression of collagen types I and III by human fibroblasts derived from post-burn hypertrophic scars and from normal skin
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009)
Fibroblasts are thought to be partially responsible for the persisting contractile forces that result in burn contractures. Using a monolayer cell culture and fibroblast populated collagen lattice (FPCL) three-dimensional ...
Collagen Type I, Collagen Type III, and Versican in Vocal Fold Lamina Propria
(AMER MEDICAL ASSOC, 2011)
Objective: To analyze the distributions of collagen type I, collagen type III, and versican in the lamina propria of the human vocal fold. Design: Cross-sectional analysis of cadaveric vocal folds of adult human larynges. ...
Collagen fiber reorganization in the rat ventral prostate following androgen deprivation: A possible role for smooth muscle cells
BACKGROUND. Stroma plays an essential role in glandular function in different systems. In the prostate, it is responsible for the development and maintenance of the differentiated state of the epithelium. The marked reduction ...
Identification of collagens types I, III, IV and alpha-SMA and the participation of myofibroblasts in the fibrotic process in equine endometrosis
(Arquivo Brasileiro Medicina Veterinaria Zootecnia, 2017-11-01)
Endometriosis is a degenerative change of the uterine glands and surrounding stroma, characterized by periglandular arrangement of myofibroblasts and deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM). The aim of this study was to ...
Distribution of Hepatic Myofibroblasts and Type I and III Collagen in Rat Liver Cirrhosis Induced by Thioacetamide
(Sociedad Chilena de Anatomía, 2011)
Changes in histoanatomical distribution of types I, III and V collagen promote adaptative remodeling in posterior tibial tendon rupture
(Faculdade de Medicina / USP, 2008)
INTRODUCTION: Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is a common cause of adult flat foot deformity, and its etiology is unknown. PURPOSE: In this study, we characterized the morphologic pattern and distribution of types I, ...
Collagen content, but not the ratios of collagen type III/I mRNAs, differs among hypertensive, alcoholic, and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2008)
Cardiac interstitial fibrosis may contribute to ventricular dysfunction and the prognosis of patients with dilated cardiomyopathy. The objective of the present study was to determine if total myocardial collagen content ...
Abnormal collagen deposition in synovia after collagen type V immunization in rabbits
(F HERNANDEZ, 2008)
Sinovitis in Scleroderma (SSc) is rare, usually aggressive and fully resembles rheumatoid arthritis. Experimental models of SSc have been used in an attempt to understand its pathogenesis. Previous studies done in our ...
