What is the mechanical role of small leucine-rich proteoglycans (SLRPs) in the mouse cervix? In collaboration with the Mahendroo lab at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, we use mechanical testing and computational modeling to reveal decorin and biglycan’s impact on time-dependent and equilibrium properties of the nonpregnant and pregnant cervix.
