Many cell types produce, remodel, and degrade extracellular matrix in response to diverse stimuli, including mechanical loads. Much is known about the molecular biology and biochemistry of the deposition and degradation of collagen, the primary structural constituent of the extracellular matrix in many tissues, yet there has been little modeling of the associated mechanobiology. For example, we do not have quantitative descriptions, or rules, for the kinetics of collagen turnover as a function… CONTINUE READING
