Reduced serum content and increased matrix stiffness promote the cardiac myofibroblast transition in 3D collagen matrices.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION The fibroblast-myofibroblast transition is an important event in the development of cardiac fibrosis and scar formation initiated after myocardial ischemia. The goals of the present study were to better understand the contribution of environmental factors to this transition and determine whether myofibroblasts provide equally important feedback… (More)
