Figure 3

Effects of TNF-α on the regulation of connective tissue growth factor production in articular cells. CTGF production in the human synovial fibroblasts cell line (MH7A) (Figure 3A) in human chondrocytes cell line (OUMS-27) (Figure 3B) stimulated with/without TNF-α were evaluated by immunoblotting and quantitative real time PCR. TNF-α promoted CTGF production in MH7A and oppositely inhibited the production in OUMS-27.
