Fibroblasts

Share this animation:

Oxidative stress in the inflamed wound environment causes premature fibroblast aging, which can lead to the breakdown and insufficient production of the extracellular matrix. The presence of non-senescent fibroblasts can help defend against pathogens in the wound while helping to promote matrix regeneration through the release of signaling factors.These fibroblasts produce molecules including Type I and Type III collagen, fibronectin, and tenascin, which in combination provide structural tissue support while protecting the wound and directly influencing the behavior of nearby cells to promote regeneration.

Working with XVIVO on the Giant Heart for the Museum of Science and Industry has been an absolute delight. The final result in the space of the museum is really a knockout. Thanks for an exemplary job.
