New Blood Vessels can Be Created from Bone Marrow Stem Cells: Study

...n, which give connective tissue their strength and elasticity and are critical to the functioning of artificial blood vessels. "These are the first tissue-engineered vessels to demonstrate the ability to make elastin in vivo," said Dr. Andreadis. He also said that the smooth muscle cells isolated from the bon...

This is Why DNA Has Its Famous Helix Shape

...ine strands exhibited an even more complex form of elasticity than had been anticipated, the researchers reported.
