[The effects of PDGF-AB on pro alpha 1 (III). mRNA expression of fibroblasts].

To investigate the mechanism of PDGF-AB to promote wound healing and its role during the process of scar formation.
In vitro cultured fibroblasts of human normal skin and hypertrophic scar were treated with PDGF-AB. The expression of Pro alpha 1 (III) mRNA of the fibroblasts was evaluated by in situ hybridization technique.
PDGF-AB could increase Pro alpha 1 (III) mRNA expression of fibroblasts of both normal skin and hypertrophic scar in a dose-dependent manner. However, the effect of PDGF-AB on hypertrophic scar fibroblasts was stronger.
PDGF-AB may promote wound healing by stimulating extracellular matrix synthesis, e.g. collagen. PDGF-AB may also play a role in scar formation through collagen deposition.
