OBJECTIVE To investigate the mechanism of aggrecanolysis in interleukin-1 (IL-1)-treated cartilage tissue by examining the time course of aggrecan cleavages and the tissue and medium content of membrane type 4-matrix metalloproteinases (MT4-MMP) and a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type I motifs (ADAMTS)4. METHODS Articular(More)
Adiponectin acts as an endogenous antithrombotic factor. However, the mechanisms underlying the inhibition of platelet aggregation by adiponectin still remain elusive. The present study was designed to test whether adiponectin inhibits platelet aggregation by attenuation of oxidative/nitrative stress. Adult rats were fed a regular or high-fat diet for 14(More)
