Molecular Parameters Indicating Adaptation to Mechanical Stress in Fibrous Connective Tissue

The present study pursues the hypothesis that local compressive force and the occurrence of cartilage-specific transformation processes within tendons and ligaments are directly correlated. In selected anatomical samples of human origin the distribution pattern of certain components of the extracell...
