Commun., 14, 1, 550, 2023.02, Myofibroblasts cause tissue fibrosis by producing extracellular matrix proteins,
such as collagens. Humoral factors like TGF-β, and matrix stiffness are
important for collagen production by myofibroblasts. However, themolecular
mechanisms regulating their ability to produce collagen remain poorly characterised.
Here, we show that vestigial-like family member 3 (VGLL3) is specifically
expressed in myofibroblasts from mouse and human fibrotic hearts
and promotes collagen production. Further, substrate stiffness triggers VGLL3
translocation into the nucleus through the integrin β1-Rho-actin pathway. In
the nucleus, VGLL3 undergoes liquid-liquid phase separation via its lowcomplexity
domain and is incorporated into non-paraspeckle NONO condensates
containing EWS RNA-binding protein 1 (EWSR1). VGLL3 binds EWSR1
and suppresses miR-29b, which targets collagen mRNA. Consistently, cardiac
fibrosis aftermyocardial infarction is significantly attenuated in Vgll3-deficient
mice, with increased miR-29b expression. Overall, our results reveal an
unrecognised VGLL3-mediated pathway that controlsmyofibroblasts’ collagen
production, representing a novel therapeutic target for tissue fibrosis..
