The FSH receptor (FSHR) is expressed only in granulosa cells of the ovary and Sertoli cells of the testis. This highly specific pattern of gene expression asserts that transcriptional events unique to these two cell types are responsible for activation of the FSHR gene. We have characterized the promoter elements required for activity of the rat FSHR gene(More)
The roles of the bHLH-Zip protein, upstream stimulatory factor (USF), in mouse metallothionein-I (MT-I) gene expression were examined. The promoter contains a putative USF binding site which overlaps an antioxidant response element (ARE) located at -101 bp relative to the transcription start point. The USF/ARE composite element increases basal expression of(More)
BACKGROUND The anterolateral ligament (ALL) has been shown to have an important role in rotatory stability of the knee. While there is abundant research on sex-based differences related to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture, there is a paucity of literature related to such differences in the ALL. PURPOSE To define any sex-based differences in the(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclops syndrome is characterized by loss of terminal knee extension due to proliferative fibrous nodule formation in the intercondylar notch. This complication occurs in the early postoperative period after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). The pathogenesis of Cyclops syndrome is not well understood. HYPOTHESIS Persistent(More)
BACKGROUND Rectus femoris injuries are common among athletes, especially in kicking sports such as soccer; however, proximal rectus femoris avulsions in athletes are a relatively rare entity. PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS The purpose of this study was to describe and report the results of an original technique of surgical excision of the proximal tendon remnant(More)
BACKGROUND Hamstring injury is the most common muscular lesion in athletes. The conservative treatment is well described, and surgical management is often indicated for proximal tendinous avulsions. To our knowledge, no surgical treatment has been proposed for failure of conservative treatment in musculotendinous hamstring lesions. PURPOSE To describe the(More)
