Acellular polyanionic collagen materials intended for biomaterial and tissue engineering uses were prepared by the selective and controlled hydrolysis of carboxyamides from asparagine and glutamine residues of type I collagen present in pericardium, tendon, and intestinal submucosa, all from bovine origin. The increase in carboxyl groups was from 26 +/- 14(More)
This study describes the selective removal of cell and cell residues from small and large diameter blood vessels for the preparation of tubular collagen:elastin matrices intended for small diameter vascular prosthesis. The results showed that total or partially devitalized collagen:elastin matrices may be conveniently prepared without denaturation of the(More)
BACKGROUND Various procedures have been proposed to treat gingival recession, but few studies compare these procedures to each other. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a clinical comparison of subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) with a collagen membrane in the treatment of gingival recessions in humans.(More)
This work describes the cytotoxicity, and the cell adhesion behavior of K562 cell line from human erythroleukemia transfected with the DNA for the alpha(2)beta(1) integrin over type-I collagen matrices with variable degree of carboxyl group and wettability. The results showed that type-I collagen materials with variable degree of carboxyl group prepared by(More)
This work describes the preparation and characterization of anionic collagen composites with rhamsan and vinylidene fluoride-trifluorethylene with improved rheological and dielectric properties without loss of collagen secondary structure with an interaction occurring between both macromolecules of the composites. On a comparative basis, the force needed(More)
En el anuro tetraploide naturalOdontophrynus americanus, el contenido de DNA es el doble que el determinado, bioquimicamente, en los especimens de la población diploide deO. americanus. Sin embargo el contenido de RNA de ejemplares de las dos poblaciones es aproximadamente igual. Aparentemente, mecanismos de regulación bloquean el esceso de material(More)
The role of the tyrosine side-chain in the smooth muscle contracting activity of angiotensin III was investigated by determining intrinsic activities and ED50 values of [4-(3-chlorotyrosine)]angiotensin II and [4-(3-benzyltyrosine)]angiotensin II in the isolated guinea-pig ileum and rat uterus. [4-(3-chlorotyrosine)]angiotensin II activity was compared with(More)
The effect of captopril on the development of hepatic septal fibrosis in a specific experimental model produced by repeated injections of whole pig serum into the peritoneal cavity of rats was studied. The results afforded four basic conclusions. First, the experimental model used seems to be a pure form of septal fibrosis, which depends on active tissue(More)
