... in this process. We demonstrate that perturbation of the observed stiffness variation in the body column by modulating the extracellular matrix polymerization impairs the ‘somersault’ movement. These results provide a mechanistic basis for the evolutionary significance of differential extracellular matrix...

...Elizabeth F. Johnston; Todd E. Gillis ABSTRACT The collagen content of the rainbow trout heart increases in response to cold acclimation and decreases with acclimation to warm temperatures. This ability to remodel the myocardial extracellular matrix (ECM) makes these fish useful models to study...

... implications for effective regulation of vocal fold length and tension. Histological investigation of the larynx revealed a layered vocal fold morphology. The thick lamina propria consists of non-homogenous extracellular matrix containing collagen fibers that are tightly packed below the epithelium but loosely...

... of the extracellular matrix, of the joint mesoglea to be approximately 50 Pa. The bell mesoglea is stiffer in compression, approximately 0.35 kPa, and the tensile stiffness along the fibre axis is approximately 1.2 kPa. Since there is no muscle to open the bell, the jellyfish mesoglea must be able to store enough...

... oligactis coincided with impaired cell—cell and cell—matrix contacts. We therefore suggest that in interspecies grafts, apoptosis is induced by the detachment of epithelial cells from the extracellular matrix(anoikis) and not by a discriminative allorecognition system.

... is due primarily to the modulation of interactions between components of the extracellular matrix, the presence of muscle in a few mutable collagenous structures has led some workers to suggest that contractile cells may play an important role in the phenomenon of variable tensility and to call for a re...
