Pericytes display increased CCN2 expression upon culturing

Abstract

By providing a source of α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA)-expressing myofibroblasts, microvascular pericytes contribute to the matrix remodeling that occurs during tissue repair. However, the extent to which pericytes may contribute to the fibroblast phenotype post-repair is unknown. In this report, we test whether pericytes isolated from human placenta can in… (More)
