For heart on a chip units, we strive to build a tissue that is as contractile
and organized as the human heart, so we can measure contractile
force - a major determinant of heart pumping performance.
However, thickness of smooth muscle in both colon and rectum, increase over time from neonate to adulthood and may have some relation with the contractile
characteristics of colon and rectum.
Although there are many reports investigating acute effects of ACL reconstruction on the contractile
function of skeletal muscles around injured knee joint (Lee et al.
This included preservation of the heart muscle's contractile
abilities and a reduction of fibrosis within the cardiac tissue.
Soleus and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles were removed intact and fixed in organ bath system containing Krebs Ringer buffer solution and connected to data acquisition unit (iWorx) to study their contractile
Method: After daily oral administration of Gegen 30 (Gegen, 30mg/kg); Gegen 300 (Gegen, 300mg/kg); Low_Dar (darifenacin, 3mg/kg); High_Dar (darifenacin, 30mg/kg) Low_Dar+Gegen 30 or High_Dar+Gegen 30 for 3 weeks, bladder detrusor strips of the rats were isolated and assessed with different stimulators for the measurement of tonic and phasic contractile
activities (including phasic amplitude and frequency).
The stem cell-derived cardiac cells did not exhibit contractile
properties similar to normal adult cardiac muscle cells.
As it was shown in our study, another group of researchers showed that in the aorta taken from the rats given fructose both the maximal contractile
responses and the sensitivity to the agonists decreased .
We have developed a method of calculating work capacity of the bladder while voiding and analyzed the associations of bladder work parameters with bladder contractile
function and bladder outlet obstruction (BOO).
These factors include the type and size of the loads imposed, the relative velocities attained (and perhaps how quickly they are attained), the contractile
time durations involved, and the skill of the subjects.
maximum at the level of internal os offering maximum contractile
response to the advancing foetal head following uterine contractions.
Amoeba proteus expresses a single AQP that is present in the contractile
vacuole complex required for osmoregulation, whereas Dictyostelium discoideum expresses four AQPs, of which two are present in the single-celled amoeboidal stage and two more in the later multicellular stages preceding spore formation.
