The major pathological hallmark of the systemic sclerosis (SSc) is skin and internal organ fibrosis, which results from normal tissue architecture alterations and extracellular matrix (ECM) protein deposition. ECM components are degraded by matrix metalloproteinases (MMP). Promoter region polymorphisms in MMP genes may influence gene expression, resulting(More)
Muscular atrophy is a progressive degeneration characterized by muscular proteolysis, loss of mass and decrease in fiber area. Tendon rupture induces muscular atrophy due to an intrinsic functional connection. Local inhibition of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) by Nω-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) accelerates tendon histological recovery and induces(More)
