Editorial: Fate of fat tissue adipocytes: do they transform into myofibroblasts in scleroderma?

Abstract

Myofibroblasts are ultrastructurally and metabolically distinctive stromal cells that are responsible for the collagen deposition and tissue remodeling associated with active fibrotic lesions. These cells are characterized by expression of -smooth muscle actin ( -SMA), increased contractility, resistance to apoptosis, and enormous production of… (More)
