Example text

They lose their tenacious binding with the dermis and lose their apical-basal polarity. They advance over the viable tissue surface by extending pseudopods along the basolateral sides of the wound. Epithelial cells will enlarge and flatten during migration over the vascular wound bed as they lose their attachments to the basement membrane and adjacent epithelial cells. Chalone (water-soluble glycoproteins) found in the epidermis normally inhibits mitosis; it is diminished in wounds, allowing epithelial cells at the perimeter of the wound to undergo mitosis and migrate onto the adjacent granulation tissue (or viable vascular tissue).

Prostaglandins and leukotrienes also appear to play a role in the healing processes. Prostaglandins of the E series may be involved in the inflammatory phase of healing, while the later anti-inflammatory effects may be due to prostaglandins of the F and possibly A series. Cytokines and Wound Healing As noted, cytokines play a major role in regulating the processes of wound repair. Growth factors are cytokines that bind to cell surface receptors and serve as important regulators of cell function and growth.
