CTGF/CCN-2 over-expression can directly induce features of skeletal muscle dystrophy
Muscular dystrophies are diseases characterized by muscle weakness together with cycles of degeneration and regeneration of muscle fibres, resulting in a progressive decrease of muscle mass, diminished muscle force generation ...
Inhibition of extracellular matrix assembly induces the expression of osteogenic markers in skeletal muscle cells by a BMP-2 independent mechanism
Abstract Background The conversion of one cell type into another has been suggested to be, at the molecular level, the consequence of change(s) in the expression level of key ...
Angiotensin II receptor type 1 blockade decreases CTGF/CCN2-mediated damage and fibrosis in normal and dystrophic skeletal muscles
(John Wiley & Sons, 2012)
Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF/CCN-2) is mainly involved in the induction of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. The levels of CTGF correlate with the degree and severity of fibrosis in many tissues, including ...
Cierre de bolsillo subpectoral para la reconstrucción mamaria: descripción de una nueva técnica quirúrgica mediante el uso de celulosa oxidada regenerada NU-KNIT®
(Sociedad de Cirujanos de Chile, 2017)
Introduction: The use of breast expander, prior to the final prosthetic reconstruction, is not exempt from complications. They not only relate to the presence of peri-operative radiation therapy, or patient-related issues; ...
