Gene expression profiling reveals alteration of caspase 6 and 14 transcripts in normal skin of keloid-prone patients

Excessive scar formation in keloids points to altered tissue modeling and repair mechanisms. Dysregulation of cytokine and apoptotic cascades and their downstream signaling pathways might have a role in keloid development. Total RNA was isolated from biopsied keloidal tissue and adjacent normal skin of black patients, white patient’s scars, and normal skin… CONTINUE READING
