    Skin wound healing is an intricate process involving various cell types and molecules. In granulation tissue, fibroblasts proliferate and differentiate into myofibroblasts and generate mechanical tension for wound closure and contraction. Actin stress fibers formed in these cells, especially...

    Keratinocyte cell death, whether produced by skin disease or by physiologic apoptosis in normal skin, may result in formation of dermal keratin bodies, consisting mainly of keratin intermediate filament aggregates. Vitronectin, a multifunction plasma and tissue glycoprotein, which inhibits the...

    Cell motility on extracellular-matrix (ECM) substrates depends on the regulated generation of force against the substrate through adhesion receptors known as integrins. Here we show that integrin-mediated traction forces can be selectively modulated by the tyrosine kinase Src. In Src-deficient...

    Integrins are heterodimers that mediate cell attachment to the extracellular matrix. Previously, we used fibroblast-specific knockout mice to show that the integrin β1 subunit was required in vivo for dermal fibrogenesis and cutaneous tissue repair. Here, we show that integrin β1...

    As mast cells have been implicated in cutaneous repair processes, we have examined the ability of human mast cells to produce important epithelial and fibroblast growth factors or to stimulate the production of such factors in dermal fibroblasts. Isolated, highly purified human dermal mast cells...

    Kindlins are a protein family that regulates cell-matrix interactions. Although kindlin-2 is known to be essential for the early developmental processes, its role in the homeostasis of adult tissues has remained elusive. In this study, we used new domain-specific antibodies and small interfering...

    Vitronectin is a multifunctional glycoprotein regulating the fibrinolysis, complement, and coagulation systems in plasma, besides exhibiting cell-spreading activity. Porcine vitronectin has an unusually small molecular mass among the vitronectins hitherto found, which seems to make it hard for...

    Fibronectin (FN) is a major extracellular matrix protein involved in various biological events. This study demonstrated that the third FN type III repeat (FnIII3) and several fragments containing the repeat promote cell spreading and migration of human dermal fibroblasts (HDFs), whereas the...

    Previous attempts to delete type II TGFβ receptor (TβRII) in fibroblasts have precluded examination of adult mice due to early mortality. We have selectively deleted TβRII postnatally in differentiated connective tissue fibroblasts using an inducible Cre-Lox strategy....
