  • More collagen fibres run in a temporal-nasal direction than run in the superior-inferior direction.
  • In addition when sliced into splits the collagen fibres running at significant angles to the skin surface will be cut.
  • The blood vessels also bring fibroblasts in the walls of the vessels and these multiply and produce collagen fibres.
  • A similar arrangement of collagen fibres has been discovered in dolphins and squid.
  • Most ligaments are mostly made of highly aligned collagen fibres which do not permit stretching.
  • Several layers of collagen fibres make up the submucosa of the human colon.
  • These wattles, which are most conspicuous during the breeding season, get their colour from arrays of collagen fibres.
  • The body wall of the disc and arms is composed of collagen fibres arranged in a three-dimensional web with calcareous plates in between.
  • Some contention has arisen with an alternative interpretation of the filamentous impression as remains of collagen fibres, but this has not been widely accepted.
  • The collagen fibres of the vitreous are held apart by electrical charges.
  • The most common application is to stain muscle fibres red and collagen fibres green or blue, Masson's trichrome being the most commonly used method.
  • Arapaima scales have a highly mineralised, very hard outer layer with a corrugated surface under which lie several layers of collagen fibres.
  • Dentine can be as hard as the rest of teeth, and is composed of collagen fibres, reinforced with hydroxyapatite.
  • In addition, liver biopsies may have fine collagen fibres between the liver cells, and the amount of collagen may be estimated based on the staining method.
  • Blood vessels may be visualized within the endotendon running parallel to collagen fibres, with occasional branching transverse anastomoses.
  • He defends the presence of collagen fibres at the bone-implant interface.
  • Once a tendon is damaged the tendon will always be weaker, because the collagen fibres tend to line up in random arrangements instead of the stronger linear pattern.
  • As the apatite forms along the collagen fibres within the extracellular matrix, BSP could then help direct, redirect or inhibit the crystal growth.
  • The structures are supported by collagen fibres set at right angles to each other and arranged in a three-dimensional web with the ossicles and papulae in the interstices.
  • They are primarily made of an elastic fibre called octopus arterial elastomer, with stiffer collagen fibres recruited at high pressure to help the vessel maintain its shape without over-stretching.
