Elastin is a structural protein which has been used in studies of Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It may be used to investigate why there is a lack of repair for these proteins in patients with COPD.
Highly stable and hemocompatible protein now finding use in construction of biomaterials as a result of several strategies for its solubilization.

Solubilization of elastin by human leukocyte elastase (HLE) cannot be analyzed by conventional kinetic methods because the biologically relevant substrate is insoluble and the concentration of enzyme-substrate complex has no physical meaning. We now report quantitative measurements of the binding...

Many cardiac diseases have been associated with increased fibrosis and changes in the organization of fibrillar collagen. The degree of fibrosis is routinely analyzed with invasive histological and immunohistochemical methods, giving a limited and qualitative understanding of the tissue's morphological...
