Dose dependent effect of C-type natriuretic peptide signaling in glycosaminoglycan synthesis during TGF-β1 induced chondrogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells

Recent investigations credited important roles to C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) signaling during chondrogenesis. This study investigated the putative role of CNP in transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1 induced in vitro chondrogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in pellet culture. MSCs were derived from human trabecular bone and were… CONTINUE READING
