New PDF release: The Periodontium

Of their contribution to the 1st version of this instruction manual, entitled "The Teeth," LEHNER and PLENK (1936) mentioned the tissues constituting the "perio­ dontium" particularly in brief. unlike the precise paragraphs facing, for instance, the teeth and dentine, the part (about forty pages and 20 illustra­ tions, typically drawings) dedicated to periodontal tissues didn't offer a genuine overview and precis of the modern wisdom and most recent advancements in learn at the quite a few parts of the periodontium.

Example text

Isoforms of Heavy-Chain Myosin. In the context of myocardial hypertrophy, the contractile proteins in the human heart are primarily subject to quantitive changes. In the normal human ventricular myocardium, the slow isoform of heavy-chain myosin (V3 isoform) is by far the most predominant. VI isoforms, as are predominant in rats and other animals used in experiments, are, if at all, only produced in small amounts (BOUVAGNET et al. 1989). In rats suffering myocardial pressure overload with myocardial hypertrophy, increased production of V 3 isoforms occurs, which relatively displace the V I isoforms.

This change was partially reversible after correction of heart failure. That these animals displayed increased sympathetic activity and renal vasoconstriction under strain argues in favour of a functional importance in the sympathetic activation in heart failure. Furthermore, the baroceptor-mediated heart rate regulation was aholished (ZUCKER et al. 1990). Similar findings were made in patients with heart failure. It was found that in orthostatic stress the peripheral vasoconstriction and the neurohumoral activating mechanisms are changed.

The individual myosin molecules are aggregated to thick filaments, as in skeletal muscles, whereby the LMM portions constitute the trunk and the myosin heads attached to the free HMM neck part protrude in abipolar arrangement. The latter form the electromicroscopically visible cross bridges together with the neck portions on attachment to actin. c. The regulatory subunit of troponin. TN I can be phosphorylated by a cAMP-dependent protein kinase, which decreases the affinity of TN C to calcium. d.
