 fibroblacty collagen and elastic fibers

Collagen fibers and their function

The main function of collagen fiber is the formation and maintenance of the structure of organs and tissues for which it is framed. Particular importance collagen (as well as other protein - elastin) has to maintain skin elasticity. The collagen fibers comprise collagen - one of the main protein of connective tissue.

Fibroblasts secreted precursor of collagen - procollagen through the secretory granules is displayed in the intercellular space. There procollagen molecules are converted into molecules of tropocollagen, of which the build collagen fibrils.

Under pathological processes in the connective tissue changes its basic elements - collagen fibers. This most often occurs as a result of inflammation, wherein the collagen fibers swell, then fall under the influence of enzymes. When collagen disease (systemic connective tissue diseases) occurs swelling Prevention and treatment of edema - it is important to understand the root cause  Prevention and treatment of edema - it is important to understand the root cause
 Swelling of collagen fibers, then they are impregnated with the protein fibrin and die off (necrosis). This creates inferiority collagen skeleton skin, bones, blood vessels and internal organs.

Elastic fibers

In the formation of elastin (it makes the bulk of the elastic fibers of the connective tissue) in the beginning as the synthesis of his predecessor - proelastina that turns into tropoelastin, and the latter forms elastin. Fibroblasts are also involved in the formation of microfibrils, which serve as formative framework, to be filled elastin.

Elastic fibers with collagen fibers support structure of organs and tissues, including skin elasticity. With age, elastin produces smaller, which most clearly seen in aging skin.

In some diseases (pulmonary emphysema, pancreatitis, arteriosclerosis Atherosclerosis - a chronic disease of the arteries  Atherosclerosis - a chronic disease of the arteries
   and others) is a destruction of elastin, it leads to dysfunction of tissues and organs involved.
