The TGF-b family consists of at least five highly conserved polypeptides, with TGF-b1, TGF-b2, and TGF-b3 being the principal mammalian forms. • TGF-b1 and TGF-b2 are one of the most important stimulators of collagen and proteoglycan synthesis, and affects the ECM not only by stimulating collagen synthesis but also by preventing its breakdown [13, 14]. • TGF-b3, which is predominantly induced in the later stages of wound healing, has been found to reduce connective tissue deposition [15]. • Specifically, beyond 1 week, differential expression of TGF-b isoforms, receptors, and activity modulators, rather than the mere presence or absence of TGF-b, may have a major role in the development of both, keloids and hypertrophic scarring [16].
