General Discussion on Turnover and Elastolysis

Abstract

Dr. Yu: I would like to ask Dr. Robert and Dr. Hornebeck to clarify their studies of human aorta which apparently breaks down continuously. I hope this only occurs in the diseased aorta. Do you think a normal full grown animal aorta displays this kind of turnover through the action of elastolytic enzymes?
