Figures

Grahic Jump Location
Evolution of dry weight and collagen content of MEs: MEs incubated in standard medium for up to 10 weeks had a transient increase in dry weight but no increase in collagen content
Grahic Jump Location
Stress–strain comparison of glycated ME and arterial tissue: Circumferential stress–strain curves for MEs incubated for 6 weeks in standard medium supplemented with 30 mM ribose are more comparable to that measured for a freshly harvested abdominal aorta from an adult Fisher rat
Grahic Jump Location
Stress–strain curves for MEs fabricated with high versus low passage SMCs: Circumferential stress–strain curves for MEs fabricated with adult SMCs at passage 5 (“low”) or passage 30 (“high”) and incubated for 13 weeks in standard medium supplemented with 50 μg/ml ascorbic acid reveal MEs fabricated with the low passage adult SMCs were considerably stiffer and stronger
