Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a pluripotent lipid mediator that transmits signals through a family of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) to control diverse biological processes including inflammation and wound-healing. In this study, a novel biological activity of S1P in articular chondrocytes was identified. Human primary chondrocytes were cultured in a monolayer. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and western blotting were performed to detect genes and proteins… CONTINUE READING
