The role of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) and transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGFbeta1) in muscle regeneration.

Abstract

Skeletal muscle regeneration is a highly synchronized process involving the activation of various cellular and molecular events, coordinating inflammation and regeneration processes which are crucial for the beneficial outcome of tissue remodeling. Fibrosis, a failure of tissue remodeling, is initiated with muscle regeneration; however, it is the result of… (More)
