Role of stromal cell population in myocardial remodelling in SSc

Specific stromal cell population serves as cellular sources of pathological myofibroblasts- key players in the heart remodelling in SSc. We pointed to the key role of Transforming Growth Factor (TGF)-b and Fos-related antigen (Fra)-2 in the fatal cardiac remodelling in SSc.
