Red Wine administration to Apolipoprotein E-deficient Mice reduces their Macrophage-derived Extracellular Matrix Atherogenic Properties
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2004)
Binding of extracellular matrix proteins to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Elsevier B.V., 2006-05-01)
Adhesion to extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins plays a crucial role in invasive fungal diseases. ECM proteins bind to the surface of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis yeast cells in distinct qualitative patterns. Extracts ...
Titanium-enriched medium drives low profile of ECM remodeling as a pre-requisite to pre-osteoblast viability and proliferative phenotype
Titanium is widely used for biomedical applications, but little information is being delivered regarding the cellular/molecular mechanisms explaining their efficacy, mainly considering the effects of the Ti-released trace ...
Extracellular matrix in airway smooth muscle is associated with dynamics of airway function in asthma
Background: Altered deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM) in the airway smooth muscle (ASM) layer as observed in asthma may influence ASM mechanical properties. We hypothesized that ECM in ASM is associated with airway ...
Expression of extracellular matrix proteins in adenomatoid odontogenic tumor
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2010)
Altered expression of extracellular matrix (ECM) components has been reported in several pathologies; however, few ECM proteins have been evaluated in adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT). The aim of this study was to analyze ...
Extracellular matrix remodeling of the testes through the male reproductive cycle in Teleostei fish
During the fish reproductive cycle, testes undergo morphological changes related to germinal epithelium and remodeling of extracellular matrix components (ECM). ECM is degraded mainly by action of matrix metalloproteinases ...
Evaluation of a multilayered chitosan-hydroxy-apatite porous composite enriched with fibronectin or an in vitro-generated bone-like extracellular matrix on proliferation and diferentiation of osteoblasts
The use of extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules from tissues is an interesting way to induce specific responses of cells grown onto composite scaffolds to promote adhesion, proliferation and differentiation. There have ...
