The role of the collagenous and elastic system fibers in modulating bronchoconstriction.

Abstract

The distribution and conformational changes of the fibers of the collagenous and elastic systems in guinea pig airways after a contractile agonist challenge are described. We observed a distinct pattern of behavior within the mucosal fibers during bronchoconstriction. Part of the fibers of the two systems tend to follow the epithelial invaginations towards… (More)
