Figure 5

Effect of CDMP treatment on aggrecan and type II collagen gene expression in NP cells derived from degenerate discs treated with CDMP for two weeks. Absolute quantification of copy number per 250 ng cDNA normalized to the housekeeping gene 18 s. Data are presented as means ± standard error. * P < 0.05 compared with untreated controls. CDMP = cartilage derived morphogenetic protein; NP = nucleus pulposus.
