9 In addition, the relative proportion of collagen and other fibers plays a role in connective tissue biomechanics. For instance, whereas collagenous fibers assist in the pro­ duction of force in structures such as the ligament and the tendon, elastic fibers also contribute to the ability of tissues and organs to regain their original form after mechanical deformation. Elastin and collagen, as the main fibrillar con­ stituents of connective tissue, display elastic behavior under tension that depends on both molecular and supramolecu­ lar mechanisms.

Even in the absence of trauma there are many negative effects of im­ mobilization and deprivation of stress on connective tissue integrity: Exercise In the longer term, mechanical loading of dense con­ nective tissues, such as a tendon, is known to influence local collagen synthesis, and micro dialysis studies have in­ dicated that mechanical loading of human tendon during exercise or training elevates tendinous type I collagen syn­ thesis/production and degradation. 53 Degradation of colla­ gen and other extracellular matrix proteins is controlled through interactivity between matrix metalloproteinases and their tissue inhibitors.

The state of mechanical force imposed on the tissue or a cell can alter the shape of certain elements of the cytoskeleton and thus participate in the control of cell functions 28 The studies of Chiquet et aP2 support the idea that cytoskeletal "pre-stress" is necessary for mechanotransduction to work; relaxation of the cytoskeleton for example by inhibiting Rho­ dependent kinase suppresses the induction of the tenascin C gene by cyclic stretch and hence desensitizes the fibroblasts to mechanical signals.
