The tensile properties of developing fetal elastic tissue

, : The tensile properties of developing fetal elastic tissue. Journal of Biomechanics 9(1): 9-11

The mechanical properties of bovine ligamentum nuchae during 5 stages in fetal development from 145-251 days were studied. The ultimate tensile stress remained fairly constant during development. The strain at rupture fell linearly with age, while the insoluble elastin content rose sharply during the later stages of development. Scanning electron microscopic examination showed the growth of elastic fibers at the stages of fetal development.

Defensins are antimicrobial peptides that are important in the innate immune defense of mammals. In contrast to mammalian α- and β-defensins, rhesus θ-defensin-1 (RTD-1) comprises only 18 amino acids stabilized by three disulfide bonds and an u...
