Overexpression of hsa-miR-148a promotes cartilage production and inhibits cartilage degradation by osteoarthritic chondrocytes.
Utrecht, Netherlands. In Osteoarthritis Cartilage, 21 Dec 2013
After 3, 7, 14 and 21 days, real-time PCR was performed to examine gene expression levels of aggrecan (ACAN), type I, II, and X collagen (COL1A1, COL2A1, COl10A1), matrix metallopeptidase 13 (MMP13), a desintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 5 (ADAMTS5) and the serpin peptidase inhibitor, clade H (heat shock protein 47), member 1 (SERPINH1).
Articular cartilage gene expression after coxofemoral joint luxation in the dog.
Chiang Mai, Thailand. In Vet Med Int, Dec 2012
Ten mRNA, including nonapoptotic genes (AGG, COL2A1, MMP-3, HAS-1, HAS-2, and TIMP-1) and apoptotic genes (BAX, BCL-2, CAS-3, and CAS-9), were studied for their expression using real-time PCR.
Clinical phenotypes associated with type II collagen mutations.
Toronto, Canada. In J Paediatr Child Health, Feb 2012
COL2A1 mutations give rise to a spectrum of phenotypes predominantly affecting cartilage and bone from the severe disorders that are perinatally lethal to the milder conditions that are recognised in the post-natal period and childhood.
Calcification of multipotent prostate tumor endothelium.
Boston, United States. In Cancer Cell, 2008
Chondrogenic differentiation was accompanied by an upregulation of cartilage-specific col2a1 and sox9, whereas osteocalcin and the metastasis marker osteopontin were upregulated during osteogenic differentiation.
