In order to better understand the gelation process associated with collagen assembly, and the mechanism of the in vitro morphogenetic phenomenon of "matrix-driven translocation" [S.A. Newman et al. (1985) Science, 228, 885-889], the viscosity and elastic modulus of assembling collagen matrices in the presence and absence of polystyrene latex beads was investigated. Viscosity measurements at very low shear rates (0.016-0.0549 s(-1)) were performed over a range of temperatures (6.9-11.5 degrees C… CONTINUE READING
