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 ...
The remodeling of collagen fibers in rats ankles submitted to immobilization and muscle stretch protocol
(SPRINGER HEIDELBERG, 2011)
To evaluate the remodeling of collagen fibers in the articular cartilage of rat ankles, with and without immobilization, after application of muscle stretching protocol. Twenty three Wistar rats were divided into four ...
Morphological and molecular analysis of the collagen fibers in inflammatory process
Collagen makes up one third of the total protein in humans, being formed by the connection of three polypeptide chains arranged in a triple helix. This protein has fundamental importance in the formation of extracellular ...
Physicochemical characterization of collagen fibers and collagen powder for self-composite film production
(Elsevier B.V., 2009-10-01)
The purpose of this work was to determine some physicochemical characteristics of collagen fibers and collagen powder obtained from bovine hides as potential raw materials for production of films with improved mechanical ...
Collagen fibers in human prostatic lesions: histochemistry and anisotropies
The present study focuses on establishing patterns of collagen fibers distribution in prostatic nodular hyperplasia and adenocarcinomas, in comparison with the normal tissue. Sections of prostatic transurethral resection ...
