Cells in normal tendon are in a resting G0 state, performing maintenance functions. However, traumatic injury introduces growth factors such as platelet-derived growth factor and insulin-like growth factor from blood as well as activates endogenous growth factors. These factors stimulate migration and proliferation of tendon cells at the wound area. Tendon cells require growth-promoting factors to transit the cell cycle. To evaluate the contribution of endogenous growth factors in tendon… CONTINUE READING
