Expression profiles of genes involved in apoptosis and selenium metabolism in articular cartilage of patients with Kashin-Beck osteoarthritis.

Abstract

Kashin-Beck disease (KBD) is a special type of endemic osteoarthritis. It has been suggested that alterations in selenium metabolism and apoptosis play a role in KBD. However, the underlying molecular mechanism remains largely unclear. We performed a microarray analysis using RNA isolated from cartilages of KBD patients and healthy controls, through… (More)
