The pre-load, as Hoyt describes it, is possible because its lamination process allows for a full contour, Uniform Stress Distribution limb design without cutting through critical stress fibers
After one month of cell expansion, the researchers saw a threefold increase in the size of the cell nucleus and the spreading area, along with an increase in stress fibers
The cells produce a large number of stress fibers
composed of alpha-Smooth Muscle Actin ([alpha]-SMA) in order to increase their retractile properties.
Squalamine also reduced VEGF induced phophorylation of focal adhesion kinase and stress activated protein kinase-2/p38, blocking in turn assembly of F-actin stress fibers
in endothelial cells.
This activity leads to an accumulation of stress fibers
, which are part of a cell's internal scaffolding.
It is hypothesized that SptP may function in disrupting host actin stress fibers
, thereby facilitating membrane ruffling and subsequent bacterial uptake into host cells.
OTC BB:ENDV) today announced that Baylor College of Medicine presented new data at the Experimental Biology Meeting last week on the efficacy of Prostaglandin E-1 in inhibiting the migration of vascular smooth muscle cell (thought to be the main cause of reblockage of blood vessels) by disruption of stress fibers
and adhesion plaques.
The product stimulates the synthesis of a-smooth muscle actin ([alpha]-SMA) or stress fibers
, which generate tension forces that are essential for regulating the mechanical resistance of the dermis and stretching of the skin.
