The role of dimethylarginines in cutaneous wound healing

Wound healing is an essential process for whole body
recovery. The factors that support an adequate intercellular
communication in all wound healing phases (inflammatory,
proliferative, tissue remodelling) are not fully known.
Experimental evidence from research in both animals and
humans suggest that dimethylarginines may have a key role
in cutaneous wound healing. Knowledge of molecular
mechanisms that initiate and promote chronic wounds may
represent a way of manipulating the metabolism into fast
restoration of skin integrity.
