Caption: In the upper panel, expression of FSTL1 protein (stained brown) and absence of miR-198 (stained red) is observed in normal wounds 24 hours after-injury. In the lower panel, there is a reversal in expression, with an absence of FSTL1 protein and high levels of miR-198 leading to chronic wounds that cannot heal.
