Wan, Qiaoqiao. Ph.D., Purdue University, August 2016. The Role of Mechanical Loading in Chondrocyte Signaling Pathways. Major Professor: Sungsoo Na. Chondrocytes are a predominant cell type present in articular cartilage, whose integrity is jeopardized in joint degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis (OA). In the chondrocytes of patients with OA, the elevated levels of inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin 1β (IL1β) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) have been reported. These… CONTINUE READING
