GSE134789: Analysis of the expression profiles of back skin and excisional wound-derived fibroblasts FACS-sorted from mice overexpressing activin A.
Bulk RNA sequencing
Overexpression of activin A by keratinocytes accelerates excisional wound healing in mice. Activin-promoted wound healing is mediated via the stroma, specifically by the wound immune cells and fibroblasts. To determine if activin A alters the gene expression profile of wound fibroblasts, we performed RNA-sequencing of fibroblasts FACS-sorted from excisional skin wounds of activin overexpressing mice. We found that activin induces a pro-fibrotic gene expression profile of these fibroblasts, leading to the upregulation of genes involved in collagen biosynthesis and remodeling.
