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.

P53 is considered one of the most important tumor suppressor genes and is mutated in up to 50% of all neoplasms. Well-differentiated thyroid carcinomas (WDTCs) only infrequently harbor p53 mutations. In contrast, these genetic alterations have bee...

Excessive synchronization of basal ganglia neural activity at low frequencies is considered a hallmark of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, few studies have unambiguously linked this activity to movement impairment through direct stimulation...
