Thinner and abnormal elastic lamellae in the ascending aorta of Elntm1Dyl/Eln+ mice

cardiovascular system
• elastic lamellae are thinner and increased in number in arteries
• elastic lamellae in the aorta are about 50% thinner
• 5% and 25% increase in elastic lamellae in the descending and ascending aorta, respectively
• 35% increase in smooth muscle and elastic lamellae in arteries
• although at physiologic pressures, aortae have normal extensibility, at 125 mmHg and above, aortic extensibility is reduced

• 35% increase in smooth muscle and elastic lamellae in arteries
