Functional consequences of homocysteinylation of the elastic fiber proteins fibrillin-and tropoelastin
is offering research quantities of its laboratory synthesized human Tropoelastin
to qualified organizations engaged in organ and tissue regeneration research.
We discovered that tropoelastin is a curved, spring-like molecule with a 'foot' region to facilitate attachment to cells.
She added, "Elastics are used in applications as diverse as clothing, vehicles, tissue engineering and even space travel, so understanding how the structure of tropoelastin creates its exceptional elastic properties will hopefully enable the development of synthetic 'elastin-like' polymers with potentially wide-ranging applications and benefits.
The soothing lotion is formulated with Elastatropin, the laboratory synthesized form of human tropoelastin
, Argireline to assist in relaxing facial muscles, and Matrixyl 3000 to promote collagen production, among other skin friendly ingredients, to improve "the wrinkled condition of the skin," according to the company.
The research collaborations are directed toward improving the quality and availability of human Tropoelastin (Elastotropin[R]) when used to heal battlefield injuries.
Dickman and Nikolov, we plan to further develop the proven abilities of human Tropoelastin (Elastotropin[R]) to penetrate the deepest parts of the topmost layer of skin.
Dr Jeff Holst combined routinely used cell hormones with a new elastic-like substance called tropoelastin
and coated them on the plates on which the cells were grown.
, a precursor to human elastin and a complex chain of more than 600 amino acids.
