3D models of chondrocytes within biomimetic scaffolds: Effects of cell deformation from loading regimens.
BACKGROUND: Mechanical conditioning has been widely used to attempt to enhance chondrocyte metabolism for the evolution of functionally competent cartilage. However, although upregulation of proteoglycans have been reported ...
Assessing the Levels of Functional Adaptation: Finite Element Analysis Reveals Species, Hybrid, and Sexual Variation in the Biomechanics of African Cichlid Mandibles
(Springer (part of Springer Nature), 2022-03-22)
To understand how adaptive divergence emerges it is essential to examine the function of phenotypic traits along a continuum. For vertebrates, the mandible provides a key link with foraging and other important activities ...
