Vascular pathology is characterized by important alterations of some vessel macromolecular constituents, such as fibrous proteins, collagens and elastin. The purpose of our study was to establish the activity of benzquercin treatment on such alterations of the vascular wall. As experimental model we used lathyrism induced in mice by chronic administration of beta-amino-propionitril (beta-APN). This compound prevents crosslink-formation in elastin and collagen and provokes a disorganization of…

TLDR
It is apparent from the literature that macromolecular and cellular mechanics of blood vessels are not fully understood, therefore, further studies are necessary to better understand contribution of these mechanisms to the overall mechanics of the vascular tissue.
