The juxtaligamental cells of Ophiocomina nigra (Abildgaard) (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea) and their possible role in mechano effector function of collagenous tissue
Subepithelial fibro collagenous tissue
with few dilated sero-mucinous glands and ductal elements.
The stiffness-changeable connective tissue of echinoderms is called catch connective tissue or mutable collagenous tissue
(Motokawa, 1988; Wilkie, 2005).
The frozen section revealed the dense collagenous tissue
of the dura to be diffusely infiltrated by lymphocytes.
Catch connective tissue (CCT), also called mutable collagenous tissue
, is collagenous tissue
that changes its mechanical properties through a non-muscular mechanism; CCT stiffens to maintain body posture and softens to allow body movements (Wilkie, 1996; Wilkie et al.
Third, their tumors were composed of a paucicellular dense collagenous tissue
and lacked the spindle cell-rich sarcomatous area found in the present case.
Tumor cells are separated by hyalinised collagenous tissue
The efficiency and extent of cross linking reactions depend upon the thickness of the layers of the collagenous tissue
and defines the magnitude of the penetration.
This ligament changes its stiffness, although it is made mostly of collagenous tissue
Fat spaces, fibro collagenous tissue
and dark marrow elements.
This membrane is a tough but flexible collagenous tissue
(sometimes with calcite ossicle inclusions) that bridges the gap between the Aristotle's lantern (or jaw) and the skeleton (Wilkie et al.
The periodontal ligament of the mouse consists of layers of collagenous tissue
intercalated by layers of fibroblasts that make up about 50% of the ligament area (Ten Cate et al.
