[Effects of Vam3 on sodium nitroprusside-induced apoptosis and SIRT1 and p53 expression in rat articular chondrocytes].

This study is to investigate the effect of Vam3, a dimeric derivative of resveratrol, on SNP-induced apoptosis and its potential mechanism in rat articular chondrocytes. Isolated rat articular chondrocytes were treated with sodium nitroprusside (SNP), a NO donor, to induce apoptosis. Apoptosis percentage was evaluated by Annexin V-PI and nucleus fracture… CONTINUE READING
