Population densities (PD) of capillaries (C) and endotheliocytes (E) were determined in pinnal dermis of C57BL mice before and after trauma. Moving (and overall) least-squares spectra before trauma detected in EPD (versus CPD) pronounced 3.5-day (circasemiseptan) and 8-h oscillations corresponding to components of the endothelin-1 chronome in human blood plasma reported earlier. Circadians were more pronounced in CPD. After trauma, circasemiseptan oscillations appeared also in CPD; their period gradually shortened and in two weeks split into about 2.5- and about 4.5-day oscillations; and circadian components became very pronounced. The pre-traumatic chronome was not restored within three weeks following trauma.
