    Collagenase-3 (matrix metalloproteinase 13, MMP-13) was employed as a surrogate marker to compare the characteristics of incisional wound repair after surgery with the free-electron laser at 6.1 µm and the scalpel. Using a transgenic mouse strain with the MMP-13 or the COL1A2 promoter driving...

    Wound healing in muscle involves the deposition of collagen, but it is not known whether this is achieved by changes in the synthesis or the degradation of collagen. We have used a reliable flooding dose method to measure collagen synthesis rate in vivo in rat abdominal muscle following a...

    Muscle biopsy is considered as a gold standard for evaluations of muscle integrity and pathological conditions in horse skeletal muscle. A semi-automated microbiopsy device with small needle has recently been introduced in horse muscle research, however there is no report on the quality of the...
