BACKGROUND Moderate loads with knee loading enhance bone formation, but its effects on the maintenance of the knee are not well understood. In this study, we examined the effects of knee loading on the activity of matrix metalloproteinase13 (MMP13) and evaluated the role of p38 MAPK and Rac1 GTPase in the regulation of MMP13. METHODS Knee loading (0.5-3 N(More)
The role of hydrogen peroxide in the regulation of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH) activity in the red kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) roots under salt stress (100 mM NaCl) was investigated. Salt stress caused the increase of the activities of G6PDH and antioxidative enzymes including ascorbate peroxidase (APX), catalase (CAT), peroxidase(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs that play a mostly post-transcriptional regulatory role in gene expression. Using RAW264.7 pre-osteoclast cells and genome-wide expression analysis, we identified a set of miRNAs that are involved in osteoclastogenesis. Based on in silico analysis, we specifically focused on miR-222-3p and evaluated its role in(More)
A non-receptor protein kinase Src plays a crucial role in fundamental cell functions such as proliferation, migration, and differentiation. While inhibition of Src is reported to contribute to chondrocyte homeostasis, its regulation at a subcellular level by chemical inhibitors and mechanical stimulation has not been fully understood. In response to(More)
