Studying Smooth and Striated Muscle Function Using Advanced Tissue Bath Systems
Aaron Stupica and Dr. Keshari Thakali discuss techniques and best practices for tissue bath myography and present a unique case study looking at the effect of maternal obesity on offspring perivascular adipose tissue and vascular function.
The exhibition begins on Sep. 10 and DMT-USA will be showing several of our myograph systems. Make sure you stop by our booth.
When the Pharmacology team at top-rated Monash University started planning for their new multidisciplinary teaching labs, they looked for alternatives to their traditional, bulky and high-maintenance organ bath systems.
DMT is pleased to participate in the 1st Summer School of the European Society for Microcirculation (ESM) and the European Vascular Biology Organization (EVBO) from July 1-5, 2018 in Dresden, Germany.
In addition to the exhibit, we will throughout the program, teach vascular function ex vivo on DMT wire and pressure myograph.
Microcirculation and vascular biology play a central role in cardiovascular development, function, and diseases. The ESM and the EVBO want to support young investigators by establishing a Joint Summer School in the years between the Joint European Congresses.
The programme is supported by ESM, EVBO and the TransCampus of TU Dresden and King’s College London.
The programme of the Summer School will include method courses, renowned experts in the field as invited speakers and poster presentations by young investigators selected from the submitted abstracts.

"Elastic fibers and the mechanics of maturing arteries"
The presentation entitled, Elastic fibers and the mechanics of maturing arteries, is a more in-depth version of her presentation in the "Vascular Mechanics" session at Vascular Biology 2017 (Monterey, CA; October 15-19, 2017).
Elasticity of the large arteries is determined by the amount and quality of elastic fibers in the wall. Elastic fibers are composed of over 20 different proteins and the contribution of different proteins to arterial wall elasticity is largely unknown. We will present data on how arterial wall elasticity is affected by the loss of specific elastic fiber proteins in newborn and maturing mouse aorta and speculate on how these mechanical changes may lead to pathological remodeling in development and disease.
Much of this presentation will refer to her article in the Journal of Biomechanics, "Crosslinked elastic fibers are necessary for low energy loss in the ascending aorta" (2017 Aug 16;61:199-207. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiomech.2017.07.011. Epub 2017 Jul 25). Here is a link to the abstract of the article. If you have a subscription to the Journal of Biomechanics, you will have access to the full text.

USING MYOGRAPHS TO STUDY THE FUNCTIONALITY OF MOUSE VESSELS RETURNING FROM SPACE.
Astronauts face several difficulties after returning from space. Beside muscle and bone wastage, the cardiovascular system also shows signs of maladaptation to space. Changes of the cardiovascular system lead to under-perfusion of the brain and cause symptoms like dizziness, nausea or even blackouts. Therefore it is crucial to understand the morphological and physiological changes occurring in the vasculature of astronauts. The Transplant- and Stemcell Immunobiology (TSI-) Lab of Dr. Schrepfer at the University of California, San Francisco uses DMT myographs to study the vessel functionality of spaceflown mice. Vessels harvested from mice that had lived on the International Space Station (ISS) will be compared to vessels from ground control mice. By using vasoconstrictors and -dilators, Dr. Schrepfer investigates the functional properties of the vessels and gets knowledge of how spaceflight will affect the vasculature. The gained knowledge will not only impact the health of astronaut, at the same time it will increase the understanding of biological processes that will benefit the health of humans on earth.
Thank you for participating in our myograph course. Going through hands-on and informative lessons, everyone successfully ran experiments... getting good, consistent and reliable results. Thanks to those that attended.
