Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Veteran s Administration Medical Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15261, USA
Am J Pathol 173:643-52. 2008..We conclude that IP-9 is a key ligand in the CXCR3 signaling system for wound repair, promoting re-epithelialization and modulating the maturation of the superficial dermis...
- Delayed reepithelialization and basement membrane regeneration after wounding in mice lacking CXCR3Cecelia C Yates
Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15261, USA
Wound Repair Regen 17:34-41. 2009..These studies further establish the emerging signaling network that involves the CXCR3 chemokine receptor and its ligands as a key regulator of wound repair...
- IP-10 induces dissociation of newly formed blood vesselsRichard J Bodnar
Pittsburgh Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA 15240, USA
J Cell Sci 122:2064-77. 2009..This is the first direct evidence for an extracellular signaling mechanism through CXCR3 that causes the dissociation of newly formed blood vessels followed by cell death...
- Lack of CXC chemokine receptor 3 signaling leads to hypertrophic and hypercellular scarringCecelia C Yates

- Matrix control of scarringCecelia C Yates
Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA 15261, USA
Cell Mol Life Sci 68:1871-81. 2011..This is particularly true of the inducers of scar formation. Here, we present a hypothesis that it is the matrix itself that is a primary driver of scar, rather than being simply the result of other cellular dysregulations...
- Transplanted fibroblasts prevents dysfunctional repair in a murine CXCR3-deficient scarring modelCecelia C Yates
Department of Pathology and McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine, University of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh VAMC, Pittsburgh, PA 15261, USA
Cell Transplant 21:919-31. 2012..These suggest that the major determinant of healing versus scarring lies with the nature of the matrix. These findings have intriguing implications for rational cellular interventions aimed at promoting wound healing via cell therapy...

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of North Carolina, 111 Mason Farm Road, MBRB 2340B, Chapel Hill, NC, USA
Cardiovasc Diabetol 14:97. 2015..Initial studies of MuRF2-/- hearts revealed enhanced PPAR activity, leading to the hypothesis that MuRF2 regulates PPAR activity by post-translational ubiquitination...
- Muscle ring finger-3 protects against diabetic cardiomyopathy induced by a high fat dietMegan T Quintana
Department of Surgery, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, USA
BMC Endocr Disord 15:36. 2015..We recently identified that muscle ring finger-1 (MuRF1) and MuRF2 differentially inhibit PPAR activities by mono-ubiquitination, leading to the hypothesis that MuRF3 may regulate PPAR activity in vivo to regulate DCM...
