Effect of transforming growth factor-β3 on the expression of Smad3 and Smad7 in tenocytes.

Abstract

Tendon adhesion is a common problem in the healing of injured tendons. The molecular mechanisms of the TGF-β/Smad signaling pathway have been determined, and the role of TGF-β has been well characterized in wound healing. However, the intracellular mechanism or downstream signals by which TGF-β3 modulates its effects on tendon healing have not been well… (More)
