Uniaxial mechanical tension promoted osteogenic differentiation of rat tendon-derived stem cells (rTDSCs) via the Wnt5a-RhoA pathway.


Chronic tendinopathy is a tendon disorder that is common in athletes and individuals whose tendons are subjected to repetitive strain injuries. The presence of ossification worsened the clinical manifestation of the disorder. The change of tendon loading due to mechanical overload, compression, or disuse have been implicated as the possible etiologies, but… (More)
