  • Subepithelial tissue cell types in vivo are separated from air by the surface-covering epithelial layer of various organs, e.g., the skin, cornea, and respiratory and upper alimentary tracts. The epithelial defect caused by inflammatory, traumatic or surgical injury would be expected to expose the subepithelial tissue-localized fibroblasts to influx air. However, it is unclear what effects air stimulation elicits in fibroblast growth, which is critical for wound healing. To address this… CONTINUE READING
