• contrast
  • In contrast with eccentric hypertrophy (elongation) of myocytes ( 60 ), fibroblasts proliferate and become myofibroblasts, a process that enhances ECM secretion and deposition ( 51 , 57 ). (physiology.org)
  • In this paper, we compare and contrast the basic organization and role of focal adhesions, podosomes, and invadopodia in different cells. (hindawi.com)
  • Proliferation
  • However, it is unknown whether tafazzin knockdown affects cardiac fibroblast proliferation and thereby contributes to the fibrosis and DCM manifest in Barth syndrome. (physiology.org)
  • microscopy
  • Surfaces were analyzed with scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and optical profilometry (OP). Subsequently, human gingival fibroblasts (HGFs) were seeded onto the zirconia surfaces. (mdpi.com)
