Article Preview

We used mechanical measurements and unbiased statistical morphometry in order to supply the computer model of smooth muscle cells (SMC) and collagen connective tissue of a gastropod Arion sp. with sufficient input data. We identified the elasticity modulus for both living (34 kPa) and formalin-fixed samples (440 kPa). The relative volume proportion of SMC was 57.8%, their numerical density was 425 925 mm-3, surface density of SMC was 405.9 mm-1 and the mean cell volume was 1 358 .m3.
