Research group at Umeå University publishes paper on the regulation of wound healing by the plasminogen receptor, Plg-RKT

The authors show that Plg-RKT is a new regulator participating in different phases of cutaneous burn wound healing, which coordinately plays a role in the interrelated responses of inflammation, keratinocyte migration, and fibrinolysis.

The plasminogen receptor, Plg-RKT, plays a role in inflammation and fibrinolysis during cutaneous wound healing in mice.
