The TGF beta family of growth factors has been implicated as playing a significant role in many aspects of embryonic morphogenesis, and also as a mediator of adult tissue repair processes. Unlike the situation in the adult, tissue repair in the embryo does not result in scarring, and it has been suggested that this might be due, in part, to reduced levels of growth factors, particularly TGF beta, at the wound site. We have examined the expression patterns of TGF beta genes following wounding of… CONTINUE READING
