German to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Health Care / effects of UV radiation
German term or phrase:lagert sich schollenartig ab
This is text from a video on the effects of UV radiation. I usually don't do medical texts and I am afraid I am out of my depth on some of the phrases here. I am really not sure what the sentence "Das geschädigte Bindengewebe lagert sich dann teilweise schollenartig ab" is saying. Can anyone help?
Die MMPs zerschneiden die bestehenden Fasern aus Kollagen und Elastin. Durch UVA-Strahlung werden vermehrt MMP’s gebildet. Dies führt zu einem verstärkten Matrixabbau.Das geschädigte Bindegewebe lagert sich dann teilweise schollenartig ab.
Thank you, my dears. Quite frankly I used phrases from everybody's answer but as gfish was the first to answer the actual question it seems only fair to award him/her the points. Thank you all for your time and help, however. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
I don't understand the sentence at all - connective tissue is damaged, it is converted into some sort of deposit "in itself"? Wo lagert sich was an? Could you continue and give us more sentences? What is the main subject?

This can result in an uneven formation of the connective tissue.
This might result in uneven depositions of damaged connective tissue.

Explanation: MMPs attack collagen and elastin fibres. UV radiation causes increased quantities of MMPs to be produced. This in turn causes the matrix of collagen fibres to break down. The result is an uneven formation (matrix) of disorganized collagen fibers. (These are actually called solar scars.)

"Elastotic material" accumulated in the photo-aging skin is described.
In the following reference, I found more insight into the skin damages - associated with MMPs - in a German text. The author talks about "fragmentierte" Fasern ... die sich ablagern.
But this damaged material is accumulating in the skin or the connective-tissue parts of the skin - not the connective tissue as a whole is accumulating! The problem is the very strange German sentence, that's all.
