The role of proteoglycans in hard and soft tissue repair

C. N. Bertolami, D. V. Messadi

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Healing of soft and hard tissues results from a progression of events initiated by injury and directed toward reestablishing normal structure and function. The ubiquity of proteoglycans in mammalian tissues virtually guarantees their involvement in tissue restitution. The dramatic advances in cellular and molecular biology in recent years have added significantly to understanding the specific roles played by proteoglycans in wound repair processes.
