Anatomical heterogeneity of tendon: Fascicular and interfascicular tendon compartments have distinct proteomic composition.

Abstract

Tendon is a simple aligned fibre composite, consisting of collagen-rich fascicles surrounded by a softer interfascicular matrix (IFM). The composition and interactions between these material phases are fundamental in ensuring tissue mechanics meet functional requirements. However the IFM is poorly defined, therefore tendon structure-function relationships… (More)
