Structural Remodeling of Unweighted Soleus Myotendinous Junction in Monkey Comptes Rendus Biologies. Mar, 2006 | Pubmed ID: 16545758 This study describes the morphology of the soleus myotendinous junction (MTJ) in the Rhesus monkey. Ultrastructural observations revealed a structural complexity that probably reflects functional adaptations. We also studied ultrastructural modifications of the MTJ in response to 14 days of hypokinesia and microgravity (Bion 11 mission). The reduced limb mobility of the animals, placed in a safety seat aboard the satellite, induced a sarcolemmal remodeling that was enhanced by the microgravity conditions. Signs of MTJ remodeling such as alterations of contractile apparatus and myofilament-anchoring structures, T-tubule dilation, and autophagic vacuoles could be ascribed to the microgravity.
Structure Factor Model for Understanding the Measured Backscatter Coefficients from Concentrated Cell Pellet Biophantoms The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. Jun, 2014 | Pubmed ID: 24916409 Ultrasonic backscatter coefficient (BSC) measurements were performed on K562 cell pellet biophantoms with cell concentrations ranging from 0.006 to 0.30 in the 10-42 MHz frequency bandwidth. Three scattering models, namely, the fluid-filled sphere model (FFSM), the particle model (PM), and the structure factor model (SFM), were compared for modeling the scattering from an ensemble of concentrated cells. A parameter estimation procedure was developed in order to estimate the scatterer size and relative impedance contrast that could explain the measured BSCs from all the studied cell concentrations. This procedure was applied to the BSC data from K562 cell pellet biophantoms in the 10-42 MHz frequency bandwidth and to the BSC data from Chinese hamster ovary cell pellet biophantoms in the 26-105 MHz frequency bandwidth given in Han, Abuhabsah, Blue, Sarwate, and O'Brien [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 130, 4139-4147 (2011)]. The data fitting quality and the scatterer size estimates show that the SFM was more suitable than the PM and the FFSM for modeling the responses from concentrated cell pellet biophantoms.
