Sammanfattning : The properties of different connective tissues depend on the synthesis and assembly of macromolecular structures composed of collagen and other extracellular matrix components. Mechanisms modulating these events play important roles in the formation of a functional tissue. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Objective: Pelvic floor dysfunction cause impaired quality of life of many women and is one of the most common reasons for gynaecological surgery on benign indications. Little is known about the pelvic floor extracellular matrix as a pre-requisite for mechanical sustainability through vaginal delivery, age and hormonal changes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disc displacement (DD) is associated with pain and impaired function and has two main sub-diagnoses, DD with or without reduction (DDwR/DDwoR). DD synovial tissue has been sparsely investigated, and further characterisation is needed. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Biological properties of connective tissues rely heavily on collagen and its use in formation of extracellular networks (matrices) in which cells can live and move. To regulate the process of collagen matrix assembly, the cells secrete small leucine-rich repeat proteoglycans (SLRPs) that bind to collagen and influence its fibril formation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis is a systemic disease affecting the large arteries caused by the accumulation of lipids in the vessel wall. Cardiovascular disease due to atherosclerosis is today the most common cause of death globally through its end consequences: myocardial infarctions and stroke. LÄS MER
