Oral mucosa heals faster with less scar formation than skin and a hypertrophic scar is very rare in the oral cavity, but its mechanism has not been elucidated enough. To elucidate whether or not there are differences in growth factor expression between fibroblasts derived from buccal mucosal and normal skin, we investigated the expression of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) and stem cell factor (SCF) by cultured fibroblasts. The semiquantitative RT-PCR revealed… CONTINUE READING
