The Intracellular Effect of Relaxin on Female Anterior Cruciate Ligament Cells.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Female collegiate athletes with serum relaxin concentrations above 6.0 pg/mL have been shown to have more than 4 times increased risk for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. However, the intracellular effect of relaxin on ACL cells has not been elucidated. HYPOTHESES The hypotheses were that relaxin binding to receptors on female ACL cells… (More)
