Proksch, Schunck, Zague, Segger, Degwert, Oesser: Oral Intake of Specific Bioactive Collagen Peptides Reduces Skin Wrinkles and Increases Dermal Matrix Synthesis. in Skin pharmacology and physiology 2014
In this report we describe a three-generation family suffering from supravalvular aortic stenosis, various other arterial stenoses, sudden death, and intracranial aneurysms. A frameshift mutation in exon 12 of the elastin gene, not described before, was detected in the affected family members.
Data show that skin aging is associated with the decomposition of elastin fibers, which is more pronounced in sun-exposed tissue.
Transcriptional and posttranscriptional mechanisms contribute to the dysregulation of elastin expression and elastogenesis in Schimke immuno-osseous dysplasia.
Neutrophil elastase (显示 ELANE ELISA试剂盒) degraded elastin fragments are increased in the serum of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and lung cancer compared to controls.
Data suggest that MFAP4 (microfibrillar-associated protein 4 (显示 MFAP4 ELISA试剂盒)) binds tropoelastin, fibrillin-1 (显示 FBN1 ELISA试剂盒)/2, and elastin cross-linking amino acid desmosine; MFAP4 (显示 MFAP4 ELISA试剂盒) co-localizes with fibrillin-1 (显示 FBN1 ELISA试剂盒)-positive fibers; MFAP4 (显示 MFAP4 ELISA试剂盒) actively promotes tropoelastin self-assembly.
In asthma, MMP-1 (显示 MMP1 ELISA试剂盒) and MMP-2 (显示 MMP2 ELISA试剂盒) mediate IL-13 (显示 IL13 ELISA试剂盒)-induced suppression of ELN expression in airway fibroblasts.
Current knowledge about elastin peptides relevant to cardiovascular pathologies to further delineate their potential application in cardiovascular disease. [Review]
elastin may be important for plaque stability
Data suggest that cross-linking involving desmosine and isodesmosine residues in human tropoelastin and bovine elastin contributes to long-term stability of these proteins.
Studies indicate that the low sequence complexity, phase behavior, and elastic properties make elastin-like polypeptides (ELPs) an interesting intrinsically disordered proteins (IDP).
Elevations of whole lung HMGB1 (显示 HMGB1 ELISA试剂盒) level were associated with impaired alveolar development and aberrant elastin production in 85% O2-exposed newborn lungs.
Eln was ubiquitously present, with enrichment in regions with cardiomyocyte differentiation, while there was an inverse correlation between ColI and cardiomyocyte differentiation.
Lung histology revealed aberrant elastin production and impaired lung septation in oxygen-exposed lungs, while tropoelastin, integrin alphav, fibulin-1 (显示 FBLN1 ELISA试剂盒), fibulin-2 (显示 FBLN2 ELISA试剂盒) and fibulin-4 (显示 FBLN4 ELISA试剂盒) gene expression were elevated.
Data suggest that expression of elastin in uterus, vagina, and bladder is down-regulated both in naturally aging mice and in mouse model of accelerated ovarian aging; such down-regulation may lead to pelvic floor disorders.
Data indicate significantly reduced volumetric density of elastin and collagen and thinner skin dermis were observed in Marfan mice.
These results suggest that elastin haploinsufficiency adversely impacts pulmonary angiogenesis.
The increased levels of elastin, type V collagen (显示 COL5A1 ELISA试剂盒) and tenascin C (显示 TNC ELISA试剂盒) are probably the result of increased expression by fibroblastic cells; reversely, elastin influences myofibroblast differentiation.
Compared to control SMCs, the modulus of Eln-/- SMCs is reduced by 40%, but is unchanged in Fbln4 (显示 FBLN4 ELISA试剂盒)-/- SMCs. The Eln-/- SMC (显示 DYM ELISA试剂盒) modulus is rescued by soluble or alpha elastin treatment.
Elastin haploinsufficiency impedes the progression of arterial calcification in MGP (显示 MGP ELISA试剂盒)-deficient mice.
Fstl1 (显示 FSTL1 ELISA试剂盒) is crucial for elastin expression and deposition in mesenchyme during lung alveologenesis
Data suggest that cross-linking involving desmosine and isodesmosine residues in bovine elastin and human tropoelastin contributes to long-term stability of these proteins.
Immersing elastin in various glycerol-water mixtures, we observe at room temperature that the protein mobility is higher for lower glycerol fractions in the solvent and, thus, lower solvent viscosity.
domain 36 of tropoelastin contributes to the binding to fibrillin-1 (显示 FBN1 ELISA试剂盒) and microfibril-associated glycoprotein through two cysteine residues and Lysine-Arginine-Lysine-Arginine sequence, resulting in the promotion of elastic fiber assembly.
Biaxial force-controlled experiments were used to quantify regional variations in the anisotropy and nonlinearity of elastin isolated from bovine aortic tissues proximal and distal to the heart.
In cases of vascular calcification, the decreased expression of tropoelastin may be partially responsible for decreased vascular elasticity and also for the decreased formation of new elastic fibers.
tropoelastin has domains that mediate elastin deposition in vitro and in vivo
B-Myb (显示 MYBL2 ELISA试剂盒) represses SMC (显示 DYM ELISA试剂盒) elastin gene expression and cyclin A (显示 CCNA2 ELISA试剂盒) plays a role in the developmental regulation of elastin gene expression in the aorta
self-association and oxidation by lysyl oxidase (显示 LOX ELISA试剂盒) precedes tropoelastin deposition onto microfibrils; the entire molecule of tropoelastin is required for this following maturation process
analysis of functional inactivation of the tropoelastin carboxy-terminal domain in cross-linked elastin
A biomechanical model of the common carotid artery predicts that the majority of elastin is in-series with vascular smooth muscle (74 +/-8%), thus only about one-fourth of elastin acts in parallel to the vascular smooth muscle within the arterial wall.
This gene encodes a protein that is one of the two components of elastic fibers. The encoded protein is rich in hydrophobic amino acids such as glycine and proline, which form mobile hydrophobic regions bounded by crosslinks between lysine residues. Deletions and mutations in this gene are associated with supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) and autosomal dominant cutis laxa. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
