By using all of the tools to study similar bond lines, the combined results have led us to new insights about the wood--adhesive nanoscale interactions in the microfibril
and how to design moisture-durable wood--adhesive bond lines.
In addition, the mechanism of PBT microfibril
formation was investigated by sampling at three different sites along the extruder.
These analysis techniques can be applied on cross sections along or perpendicular to the fiber axis, and can be used to extract morphological repeat distances which correlate to crystallite and microfibril
This gene contains 66 exons, is located on chromosome 15q21.1 and encodes fibrillin, an important protein of the extracellular matrix, that contributes to the final structure of a microfibril
Conversely, genes related to matrix metallopeptidases, such as prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 1 (PTGS1), elastin microfibril
interfacer 2 (EMILIN2), procollagen-lysine 2-oxoglutarate 5-dioxygenase 2 (PLOD2), and collagen type 18 alpha 1 (COL18A1) were overrepresented in the "HT-29 signature" (Fig.

CNF is a general term for a bundle of cellulose microfibril
that is a basic structure substance of plant cell wall.
The topographic study was performed in the coconut microfibril
, which has mean diameter of ~20 nm.
Chitinases (EC 220.127.116.11) are the enzymes which hydrolyze the [beta]-1, 4 linkages in the insoluble chitin microfibril
that are extensively distributed among plants, most fungi, yeasts and some prokaryotes and are required for morphogenesis of cell wall and exoskeletons (4).

Juvenile wood is composed of shorter length tracheids (conducting elements) and larger microfibril
angles than mature wood .
