Gene-expression changes in knee-joint tissues with aging and menopause: implications for the joint as an organ

Abstract

Background When considering the "joint as an organ", the tissues in a joint act as complementary components of an organ, and the "set point" is the cellular activity for homeostasis of the joint tissues. Even in the absence of injury, joint tissues have adaptive responses to processes, like aging and menopause, which result in changes to the set point… (More)
