TNF-α Protects Human Primary Articular Chondrocytes from Nitric Oxide-Induced Apoptosis Via Nuclear Factor-κB


TNF-α plays a key role in rheumatoid arthritis, but its effect on chondrocyte survival is still conflicting. In the present study, we tested how TNF-α influences chondrocyte survival in response to nitric oxide (NO)-related apoptotic signals, which are abundant during rheumatoid arthritis. Human primary articular chondrocytes or cartilage explants were… (More)
