The content of elastin in the uterine cervix.
Mature, crosslinked elastin has been isolated from 4 human and 12 monkey uterine cervices. A modification of previous methods for determination of elastin content was devised to quantitate the low amounts of elastin in the crude connective tissue of uterine cervices. The percentage of elastin was found to range between 0.9 and 2.4% and did not appear to change at various stages of gestation.
