Tendon healing in vitro: activation of NIK, IKKalpha, IKKbeta, and NF- kappaB genes in signal pathway and proliferation of tenocytes.

Initiation of DNA transcription and proliferation of tendon cells are critical to tendon healing and require pivotal signals to the nucleus. Exploring intracellular signaling pathways pertinent to the healing process may reveal new approaches to accelerating the healing rate of the tendon. The authors investigated expression of NIK, IKKalpha, IKKbeta, and… CONTINUE READING
