Example sentences for: deformability

How can you use “deformability” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • The fatty acid composition of serum phospholipids is known to reflect the phospholipid composition of cell membranes [ 10 ] . Because the fatty acid composition of membrane phospholipids is a major determinant of membrane fluidity and function [ 11 ] , any alteration in fatty acid composition of membrane phospholipids could contribute to the red cell abnormalities seen in SCD, such as cation imbalance, dehydration, reduced deformability and hypercoagulability [ 12 13 ] .

  • In an in vitro study using red cells from both healthy subjects and patients with SCD, Kuypers and coworkers [ 25 ] showed that the deformability and stability of SCD red cells could be altered by changing the fatty acid composition of the phosphatidylcholine (PC) molecules of the membrane.

  • TGFβ1 also supports the differentiation of fibroblasts into myofibroblasts, which are a major constituent of the granulation tissue [ 23 24 ] . The process depends upon the deformability of the ECM [ 17 25 ] and is mediated by the ED-A splice variant of fibronectin [ 26 27 ] . ED-A fibronectin is expressed in the initial stages of wound healing and along with collagen I is positively regulated by TGFβ1 [ 26 ] .

  • The double-bond index of the red cells increased, indicating an increase in red cell membrane fluidity and deformability.

  • Studies reported by different investigators have shown that a dietary intake of 10 % canola oil (as part of semi-purified diets) significantly shortened the life-span of SHRSP rats, with accumulation of phytosterols in plasma, red blood cells and tissues [ 15 17 18 19 21 22 ] . Lower red blood cell (RBC) membrane deformability, lower density of platelets, as well as a higher blood pressure were also observed, when compared to a SHRSP group fed with vegetable oils lower in phytosterols (10 % soybean oil vs. 10% canola oil).
