MiR-24 repression correlates with p16INK4ainduction in interleukin-1-beta (IL-1β)-treated chondrocytes and osteoarthritis (OA) cartilage. OA human primary chondrocytes are placed in pellet and treated with IL-1β at 10 ng/mL for 5 days. (A) List of microRNAs downregulated by IL-1β. (B,C) Gene expression analysis was performed by reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) for miR-24 and p16INK4a (n = 3). (D) Luciferase/β-gal activities of promoter miR-24-2 cluster after IL-1β treatment (n = 3). Data are shown as mean ± standard deviation (SD). MiR-24 repression in OA cartilage samples is shown. (E,F) MiR-24 repression in OA cartilage: gene expression for miR-24 and p16INK4a on OA (n = 5) and healthy (n = 6) cartilage samples. *P <0.05, **P <0.01, ***P <0.001.
