Determination of insoluble avian eggshell matrix proteins
The organic components of bones and other mineralized tissues have a high impact on the organization and deposition of calcium, and consequently influence the mechanical properties of those tissues.Expand

Proteins of Insoluble Matrix of Avian (Gallus Gallus) Eggshell
The protein composition of the insoluble avian eggshell matrix was studied. The determination of these proteins insoluble in water (EDTA-insoluble) was carried out using enzymatic cleavage followedExpand

Cell responses to the mechanochemical microenvironment--implications for regenerative medicine and drug delivery.
Soft-tissue cells are surprisingly sensitive to the elasticity of their microenvironment, suggesting that traditional culture plastic and glass are less relevant to tissue regeneration andExpand

Insoluble eggshell matrix proteins – their peptide mapping and partial characterization by capillary electrophoresis and high‐performance liquid chromatography
Avian eggshell matrix proteins were studied by two analytical approaches. Peptide mapping was done by trypsin and pepsin followed by collagenase cleavage; analyses were carried out by capillaryExpand

Preparative procedures and purity assessment of collagen proteins.
Collagens represent a large family (25 members identified so far) of closely related proteins. While the preparative procedures for the members that are ubiquitous and present in tissues in largeExpand

A possible role of the oxidant tissue injury in the development of hypoxic pulmonary hypertension.
Chronic sojourn in hypoxic environment results in the structural remodeling of peripheral pulmonary arteries and pulmonary hypertension. We hypothesize that the pathogenesis of changes in pulmonaryExpand

Eggshell pigmentation has no evident effects on offspring viability in common kestrels
Infectious diseases and parasitism are major environmental forces decreasing fitness, and thus individual strategies aimed at preventing pathogen infections, either in an individual or theirExpand

Proteomic analysis of cardiac ventricles: baso-apical differences
The heart is characterized by a remarkable degree of heterogeneity. Since different cardiac pathologies affect different cardiac regions, it is important to understand molecular mechanisms by whichExpand

Study of posttranslational non-enzymatic modifications of collagen using capillary electrophoresis/mass spectrometry and high performance liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry.
The depository effects that occur in slowly metabolized proteins (typically glycation) are very difficult to assess, owing to their extremely low concentration in the protein matrix. CollagenExpand
