These data suggest that, at the first collection, the water that was present in bole wood (xylem) was not in the xylem vessels, but rather in the interfibrillar spaces and the xylem parenchyma cells.
Thus the water moves from the myofibrillar to interfibrillar compartments then to the extracellular compartments and finally drip is formed on the meat surface giving the watery appearance (Guarnieri et al., 2004).

And in this regard in cellulose fiber after these processes the initial capillarity can or remain or even to increase, or to decrease as mobility the chainomatic molecules of cellulose in liquid active environments is very great and in swelling process in them redistribution is possible in an arrangement of cellulose molecules and fibriles in structure of fiber and to some extent compression the interfibrillar or even intercrystalline spaces [4].
Acetyl-L-carnitine supplementation reverses the age-related decline in carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1 (CPT1) activity in interfibrillar mitochondria without changing the L-carnitine content in the rat heart.
The SEM images of the fiber surface, Figure 1, show a dense interfibrillar structure, similar to coconut [14-16].
Studies performed in MFN2 knockout mouse muscles suggested a correlation between the impairment of mitochondrial fusion and compensatory mitochondrial proliferation in both interfibrillar and subsarcolemmal spaces, muscle atrophy, and defective mtDNA content and integrity [19, 91].
Collagen cross-linking technique consists of a photopolymerization of stromal collagen fibers induced by the combined action of a photosensitive substance (riboflavin or Vitamin B2) and ultraviolet A (UVA, 370 nm) light that induces corneal stiffening by increasing the number of intrafibrillar and interfibrillar covalent bonds, induces resistance to proteolytic enzymatic degradation such as that from collagenase, and reduces corneal permeability and the formation of large collagen molecular aggregates [38].
