Comparative studies of the elastin content of normal and emphysematous human lungs with special regard to antitrypsin deficiency.

Abstract

The elastin content and the amino acid composition of elastin in emphysematous and healthy control lung tissues were comparatively studied. Decreased lung elastin content was found in the emphysematous patients of both normal and reduced trypsin inhibitor activity compared to normal control subjects. In the emphysematous patients with reduced inhibitor… (More)
