High impact information on ELASTIN

  • It consists of an Fc binding domain of protein G (G3) and hydrophobic domain of elastin (E72) [1].
  • Compared with both hyaline and elastic native fetal cartilage, C-II and EL levels were, respectively, similar and lower in the CB constructs, which had correspondingly lower and similar GAG levels than native hyaline and elastic fetal cartilage [2].
  • In the CB constructs, there was a significant time-dependent increase in extracellular matrix levels of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and type-II collagen (C-II) but not of elastin (EL) [2].
  • Fetal chondrocyte and CB constructs had similar GAG and C-II contents, but CB constructs had less EL [2].
  • A tetranucleotide repeat polymorphism within the human elastin gene (ELNi1) [3].
