5. Evaluation of CD98 Expression in Normal and Osteoarthritic Human Articular Chondrocytes

Mahmoud Orazizadeh; Donald McGovern Salter

Volume 3, Issue 3 , Summer 2006, Pages 127-135

  Background: Recent studies have provided evidence that integrins play roles in recognition of mechanical stimuli and its translation into a cellular response. Integrin signaling may be regulated by a number of mechanisms including accessory proteins such as CD98 (4F2 antigen). Objectives: To determine ...  Read More
