MIT tissue engineers implant viable, vascularized 3D muscles
...muscle fibers and also serve as a model for highly vascularized
organs such as the liver, heart, and lung. Levenberg theorized she needed to combine three cell types: myoblasts that form muscle fibers; endothelial cells that independently self-organize into vessel tubes; and fibroblasts that are the precursors fo...
Stegosaur plates and spikes for looks only, researchers say
...t for the Stegosaurus plates. Being so large, well vascularized
(and available) they may have been inevitably exapted for such a function. This is so even if the primary explanation of their occurrence in an evolutionary context may be elsewhere: namely in some sort of 'display' (mate or species recognition), as ...
Ophthalmologists and physicists team up to design 'bionic eye'
... pigment epithelium (RPE) that grows atop a highly vascularized
layer of tissue (choroid) carrying a heavy flow of blood. If the blood supply and the RPE were inside the eye, they would obscure light from the photosensitive cells. Explained Palanker: "That is why it's built upside down, because those cells on top...
