    Keloids and hypertrophic scars frequently pose chronic and challenging problems. To heat them optimally, one should have insight into the pathogenesis of scar formation and keep abreast of new surgical, pharmacological, and therapeutic approaches to promote desirable outcomes. Current research...

    The molecular mechanisms behind the pathogenesis of postburn hypertrophic scar (HS) remain unclear. Here, we investigate the role of the IL-6 trans-signaling-signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT)3 pathway in HS fibroblasts (HSFs) derived from post-burn HS skin. HSF showed...

    We have reported deficient expression of decorin on skin fibroblasts from a patient with carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome type I [Gu, J. and Wada, Y. (1995)J. Biochem. 117, 1276-1279]. The characteristics of fibroblasts from this patient included increased cell spreading and reduced...

    Physical properties of the extracellular matrix (ECM) are known to regulate cellular processes ranging from spreading to differentiation, with alterations in cell phenotype closely associated with changes in physical properties of cells themselves. When plated on substrates of varying stiffness,...
