BACKGROUND The leaflet tissue of the mouse atrioventricular (AV) valves contains a system of wavy collagen bundles that organize like tendons, orientate along lines of tension, and constitute an essential component of the valve tissue. The organization of these bundles is different in the two AV valves, reflecting differences in the anatomy of the entire valvular complex. Further insights into this kind of organization are needed to gain a complete understanding of the functional anatomy of the… CONTINUE READING
