PSP/reg inhibits cultured pancreatic stellate cell and regulates MMP/ TIMP ratio


Li, L; Bimmler, D; Graf, R; Zhou, S; Sun, Z; Chen, J; Siech, M; Bachem, M G (2011). PSP/reg inhibits cultured pancreatic stellate cell and regulates MMP/ TIMP ratio. European Journal of Clinical Investigation, 41(2):151-158.

Abstract

Our work describes a novel aspect that in vitro PSP/reg reduces PSC activity (proliferation and migration) and stimulates fibrolysis by increasing MMP/TIMP ratio. The findings suggest that PSP/reg might have a protective function in the repair phase of acute and chronic pancreatitis by promoting resolution of fibrosis. We highlight PSP/reg as an antifibrogenic protein in pancreatic injury.
