Deletion of the transforming growth factor β receptor type II gene in articular chondrocytes leads to a progressive osteoarthritis-like phenotype in mice.
OBJECTIVE While transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) signaling plays a critical role in chondrocyte metabolism, the TGFβ signaling pathways and target genes involved in cartilage homeostasis and theExpand

Regulation of chondrogenesis and chondrocyte differentiation by stress.
Chondrogenesis and endochondral ossification are the cartilage differentiation processes that lead to skeletal formation and growth in the developing vertebrate as well as skeletal repair in theExpand

MicroRNA-30d-5p inhibits tumour cell proliferation and motility by directly targeting CCNE2 in non-small cell lung cancer.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, single-stranded, non-coding RNA molecules that are dysregulated in many types of human cancers, although their precise functions in driving non-small cell lung cancerExpand

Sequential delivery of BMP-2 and IGF-1 using a chitosan gel with gelatin microspheres enhances early osteoblastic differentiation.
The purpose of this study was to develop and characterize a chitosan gel/gelatin microsphere (MSs) dual delivery system for sequential release of bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) and insulin-likeExpand

Recent progress in understanding molecular mechanisms of cartilage degeneration during osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a highly prevalent disease affecting more than 20% of American adults. Predispositions include joint injury, heredity, obesity, and aging. Biomechanical alterations areExpand

Ultrasound modulates ion channel currents
Transcranial focused ultrasound (US) has been demonstrated to stimulate neurons in animals and humans, but the mechanism of this effect is unknown. It has been hypothesized that US, a mechanicalExpand

Shikonin exerts antitumor activity via proteasome inhibition and cell death induction in vitro and in vivo
Dysregulation of the ubiquitin‐proteasome pathway plays an essential role in tumor growth and development. Shikonin, a natural naphthoquinone isolated from the traditional Chinese medicine Zi CaoExpand

Axin2 regulates chondrocyte maturation and axial skeletal development
Axis inhibition proteins 1 and 2 (Axin1 and Axin2) are scaffolding proteins that modulate at least two signaling pathways that are crucial in skeletogenesis: the Wnt/β‐catenin and TGF‐β signalingExpand

Axin1 and Axin2 Are Regulated by TGF‐β and Mediate Cross‐talk between TGF‐β and Wnt Signaling Pathways
Abstract:  Chondrocyte maturation during endochondral bone formation is regulated by a number of signals that either promote or inhibit maturation. Among these, two well‐studied signaling pathwaysExpand

Co-expression of PKM2 and TRIM35 predicts survival and recurrence in hepatocellular carcinoma
The identification of prognostic markers for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is needed for clinical practice. Tripartite motif-containing 35 (TRIM35) is a tumor suppressor of HCC. TRIM35 inhibitsExpand
