    ..These data support a novel hypothesis that maintaining full-length uPAR on the cell surface regulates the fibroblast to myofibroblast transition and that down-regulation of uPAR is necessary for myofibroblast differentiation. ..

    Bernstein A, Greenberg R, Taliana L, Masur S. Urokinase anchors uPAR to the actin cytoskeleton. Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci. 2004;45:2967-77 pubmed
    ..The authors propose that uPA/uPAR ligation anchors the complex to the actin cytoskeleton and is a part of the mechanism responsible for uPA-induced cell migration in fibroblasts. ..
