BACKGROUND The gene encoding c-fos is an important factor in the pathogenesis of joint disease in patients with osteoarthritis. However, it is unknown whether the signal mechanism of c-fos acts in intervertebral disc (IVD) cells. We investigated whether c-fos is activated in relation to mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) and the protein kinase C (PKC) pathway in nucleus pulposus (NP) cells. METHODOLOGY/RESULTS Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and western blotting… CONTINUE READING
