122. Tissue length modulates “stimulated actin polymerization,” force augmentation, and the rate of swine carotid arterial contraction Full Text available with Trip Pro

by reduced prior S3 cofilin phosphorylation without changes in Y118 paxillin or cross-bridge phosphorylation. At long tissue length (1.4 L(o)), force augmentation was not observed, and there were no prior changes in Y118 paxillin, S3 cofilin, or cross-bridge phosphorylation. There were no significant differences in the cross-bridge phosphorylation transients before and after the force augmentation protocol at all three lengths tested. Tissues contracted faster at longer tissue lengths; contractile rate (...) correlated with prior Y118 paxillin phosphorylation. Total stress, per se, predicted Y118 paxillin phosphorylation. These data suggest that force augmentation is regulated by stimulated actin polymerization and that stimulated actin polymerization is regulated by total arterial stress. We suggest that K(+) depolarization first leads to cross-bridge phosphorylation and contraction, and the contraction-induced increase in mechanical strain increases Y118 paxillin phosphorylation, leading to stimulated

pushes the leading edge forward. The contraction, in turn, is regulated by stress in the cytoskeleton. To test this hypothesis, finite element models for a crawling cell are presented. These models are based on nonlinear poroelasticity theory, modified to include the effects of active contraction and growth, which are regulated by mechanical feedback laws. Results from the models agree reasonably well with published experimental data for cell speed, actin flow, and cytoskeletal deformation (...) A POROELASTIC MODEL FOR CELL CRAWLING INCLUDING MECHANICAL COUPLING BETWEEN CYTOSKELETAL CONTRACTION AND ACTIN POLYMERIZATION Much is known about the biophysical mechanisms involved in cell crawling, but how these processes are coordinated to produce directed motion is not well understood. Here, we propose a new hypothesis whereby local cytoskeletal contraction generates fluid flow through the lamellipodium, with the pressure at the front of the cell facilitating actin polymerization which

124. Understanding Contradictory Data in Contraction Stress Tests. (Abstract)

Understanding Contradictory Data in Contraction Stress Tests. The literature shows contradictory results regarding the role of composite shrinkage and elastic modulus as determinants of polymerization stress. The present study aimed at a better understanding of the test mechanics that could explain such divergences among studies. The hypothesis was that the effects of composite shrinkage and elastic modulus on stress depend upon the compliance of the testing system. A commonly used test (...) apparatus was simulated by finite element analysis, with different compliance levels defined by the bonding substrate (steel, glass, composite, or acrylic). Composites with moduli between 1 and 12 GPa and shrinkage values between 0.5% and 6% were modeled. Shrinkage was simulated by thermal analogy. The hypothesis was confirmed. When shrinkage and modulus increased simultaneously, stress increased regardless of the substrate. However, if shrinkage and modulus were inversely related, their magnitudes

valve replacement (SAVR) in patients with severe, symptomatic aortic valve stenosis at intermediate surgical risk. BACKGROUND Health Condition The aortic valve is located between the aorta and the left ventricle of the heart. 1 It opens to allow blood to flow from the left ventricle into the aorta when the heart contracts, and closes to prevent blood from flowing backward into the heart when the heart relaxes. 1 Aortic valve stenosis occurs when the valve partially narrows, obstructing blood flow (...) in both trials was determined by a multidisciplinary heart team and informed by the STS risk score and other comorbidities.
