Comparison of mRNA levels for matrix molecules in normal and disrupted human anterior cruciate ligaments using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction.


Midsubstance samples of anterior cruciate ligaments from seven normal human cadaver knees (16-50 years old) were harvested and compared with midsubstance pieces of scarred anterior cruciate ligaments from 30 patients (15-40 years old). RNA was isolated from each ligament, and the expression of type-I collagen, type-III collagen, biglycan, decorin, lumican… (More)
