Wound healing disorders are a therapeutic problem of increasing clinical importance involving substantial morbidity, mortality, and rising health costs. Our studies investigating flightless I (FliI), a highly conserved actin-remodelling protein, now reveal that FliI is an important regulator of wound repair whose manipulation may lead to enhanced wound outcomes. We demonstrate that FliI-deficient +/- mice are characterized by improved wound healing with increased epithetial migration and...[Show more]
