Divergent stress responses to IL-1beta, nitric oxide, and tunicamycin by chondrocytes.

Abstract

As the only cell in cartilage responsible for matrix synthesis, the chondrocyte's viability is crucial to healthy tissue. It must tolerate stresses from both mechanical and cellular sources. This study examines the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response in chondrocytes after exposure to IL-1beta, nitric oxide, or tunicamycin in order to determine… (More)
