SOX9 expression does not correlate with type II collagen expression in adult articular chondrocytes.


Anabolic activity is a crucial activity of articular chondrocytes and its failure is one major reason of osteoarthritic cartilage degeneration. The intracellular factors responsible for the increase or decrease of anabolic activity of articular chondrocytes remain largely unknown. A recent candidate, the transcription factor SOX9, has elicited much interest… (More)
