Differentiation of stem cells from human infrapatellar fat pad: characterization of cells undergoing chondrogenesis.
Melbourne, Australia. In Tissue Eng Part A, Aug 2014
Normalized microarray highlighted 608 differentially expressed genes; 10 chondrogenic genes were upregulated (2- to 87-fold), including COL2A1, COL10A1, COL9A1, COL11A1, COL9A2, COL11A2, COL1A1, COMP, SOX9, and COL3A1.
An introduction of genetics in otosclerosis: a systematic review.
Utrecht, Netherlands. In Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg, Jan 2014
These high-quality studies show that otosclerosis in Japanese patients is not linked to the NOG gene and that a polymorphism in the Sp1 binding site located on the COL1A1 gene is associated with otosclerosis as well as OTSC1.
