Integrin display increases in the wounded rabbit medial collateral ligament but not the wounded anterior cruciate ligament.

Abstract

The differential capacities of the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments to heal may be related to differences in cellular function. This study tested the hypothesis that differential expression of integrins occurs in these ligaments after injury. The integrins are a family of cell surface receptors that mediate adhesion, migration, and other… (More)
