Normal murine dermal fibroblasts implanted into the muscles of the mdx mouse, a model for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, not only participate in new myofibre formation but also direct the expression of the protein dystrophin which is deficient in these mice. We have reported that the lectin galectin-1 is implicated in the conversion of dermal fibroblasts to… CONTINUE READING
