Genetic expression for type I procollagen in the early stages of flexor tendon healing.


To determine the precise mechanism by which contact tendon healing occurs at the cellular level, the production of pro alpha (I) collagen messenger RNA (mRNA) produced by fibroblasts of healing intrasynovial flexor tendons was determined by an in situ hybridization technique. The repair site and the proximal and distal tendon stumps of repaired tendons… (More)
