Background: In old age, the expansion of lungs is restricted as the elastic tissue
in the lungs is being replaced by fibrous tissue and a number of alveoli break down leading to emphysema, and also respiratory muscles become weak.
They found that those with higher fitness levels also had more elastic tissue
in the hippocampus and scored the best on memory tests.
Exposure to sun not only causes pre-cancerous (actinic keratosis) and cancerous (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma) skin lesions - caused by loss of the skin's immune function, it also leads to benign tumors, fine and coarse wrinkles, freckles, sallowness - a yellow discoloration of the skin, telangiectasias - the dilation of small blood vessels under the skin, and elastosis - the destruction of the elastic tissue
causing lines and wrinkles.
anchorage to the hair follicle is reduced in the dark skin, resulting in greater damage with traction based alopecia.
The topics include the assembly and properties of elastic fibers, the biomolecular regulation of elastic matrix regeneration and repair, scaffold and biomechanical transductive approaches to elastic tissue
engineering, sourcing and manipulating stem cells for elastin regeneration applications, and regulating elastogenesis using proteoglycans.
Soft palate of camel contains elastic tissue
which facilitates its exteriorisation by pulling it out.
Acquired disorders of elastic tissue
: Part I: Increased elastic tissue
and solar elastotic syndromes.
2) Histologically, AML is composed of mature adipose tissue, thick-walled blood vessels lacking elastic tissue
lamina, and bundles of smooth muscle, which are mostly spindled in morphology but can also be epithelioid.
A Verhoeff-Van Gieson (VVG) stain failed to reveal elastic tissue
fibers within the crusted stratum corneum.
Caption: Like other chameleons, Rhampholeon spinosus (shown) probably achieves astounding power and acceleration of its tongue by contracting and stretching elastic tissue
to load the tongue with potential energy like a catapult.
Arm yourself with antioxidants which help protect the skin DNA while also protecting the collagen and elastic tissue
It's important to protect against the cascade of events that leads to inflammation and damage of the elastic tissue
of the skin.
