Impaired wound healing in the elderly presents a major clinical challenge. Understanding the cellular mechanisms behind age-related impaired healing is vital for developing new wound therapies. Here we show that the actin-remodelling protein, Flightless I (FliI) is a contributing factor to the poor healing observed in elderly skin and that gender plays a major role in this process. Using young and aged, wild-type and FliI overexpressing mice we found that aging significantly elevated FliI...[Show more]
