Abstract: Biochemical and biophysical properties of the cellular microenvironment can influence gene expression, however, there needs to be further investigation into how these parameters affect the pro-fibrotic response of cardiac fibroblasts (CF) and myofibroblasts (MF) following myocardial infarction (MI). Following MI, an inflammatory response occurs to stabilize the tissue, but ultimately lea... read more
