Figure 2

FAPα gene expression is upregulated by IL-1 and oncostatin M (OSM) in chondrocytes. SW1353 cells were treated with combinations of IL-1 and OSM for 24 h. Total RNA was extracted and FAPα gene expression determined by real-time PCR as described in Materials and methods. The data are presented relative to GAPDH, and are representative of four separate experiments. * = P < 0.05, *** = P < 0.001 versus control
