Sorry, no etymologies found.
For starters, his focus was on genes that had never been shown to play a role in Marfan-like diseases, rather than more probable culprits such as fibrillin-2.
But now that I think about it, why is limb length longer due to a fibrillin malfunction?
In Marfans syndrome fibrillin gene mutation is responsible for this structural lipoprotein changes causing dilatation of aortic wall.
For example, EPH receptor A3 and fibrillin 1 are overexpressed in the stromal compartment of both chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.
Fbn, fibrillin gene • Fbln, fibulin gene • pAb, polyclonal antibody • rF, recombinant fibrillin • PBS, phosphate-buffered saline.
To my surprise, the Boots cream stimulated the production of fibrillin [a protein associated with the creation of elastin and collagen], the skin’s equivalent of the springs found in a mattress.
