Myofibroblasts in cutaneous fibrosis originate from adiponectin-positive intradermal progenitors.

 

There is a novel link between intradermal adipose loss and dermal fibrosis, and we demonstrate that adiponectin–positive intradermal progenitors give rise to dermal myofibroblasts. PubMed, Arthritis Rheumatol, 12/10/2014. (Also see: Skin Fibrosis)
