Abstract:

The overall objective of this research is to examine the feasibility of accelerating wound healing by understanding the intra-cellular cellular mechanisms involved in the regulation of collagen synthesis. Collagen is a key component of all tissues. It is involved in defining the architecture and biomechanical characteristics of all tissue and organs and plays a major role in the modulation of cell proliferation, migration and differentiation. Collagen synthesis is a crucial step in wound healing. Collagen, Lab animals, Rabbits, Rodents RAD II.
