The expression of signal regulatory protein-alpha in normal and osteoarthritic human articular cartilage and its involvement in chondrocyte mechano-transduction response.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Signal regulatory proteins (SIRP) belong to immunoglobulin super family (IgSF) and relate to integrin signaling cascades. It has been shown that SIRPalpha is expressed in a variety of cells including myeloid cells and neurons. In the present study the expression of this IgSF member in articular chondrocytes was investigated. METHODS Using a… (More)
