Anti-microRNA-33a affects ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 and apolipoprotein A1 expression in human chondrocytes. (A) Relative expression levels of ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) mRNA 24 and 48 hours after transfection of 50 nM anti-microRNA (miR)-33a or negative control in human osteoarthritis (OA) chondrocytes (n = 5 from 5 different donors). Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) was used for normalization of the real-time PCR data. The data are expressed as mean and standard error of the mean (SEM) of two independent experiments, each of which was run in triplicate. *P < 0.05 versus negative control. (B) Relative expression levels of apolipoprotein A1 (ApoA1) mRNA 24 and 48 hours after transfection of 50 nM anti-miR-33a or negative control in human OA chondrocytes (n = 5 from 5 different donors). GAPDH was used for normalization of the real-time PCR data. The data are expressed as mean and SEM of two independent experiments, each of which was run in triplicate. *P < 0.05 versus negative control. (C) Relative expression levels of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-13 mRNA 24 and 48 hours after transfection of 50 nM anti-miR-33a or negative control in human OA chondrocytes (n = 5 from 5 different donors). GAPDH was used for normalization of the real-time PCR data. The data are expressed as mean and SEM of two independent experiments, each of which was run in triplicate. *P < 0.05 versus negative control.
