The 3D structure of crimps in the rat Achilles tendon.

Abstract

The ultrastructure of crimps of the Achilles tendon of rat, excised and processed in a slack condition, was investigated by atomic force microscopy in air, in fluid and by scanning electron microscopy and stereo reconstruction. The tendon was made of distinct fascicles, each comprising a succession of straight segments connected by sharp angles. The length… (More)
