Expression of canonical BMP signaling components in RA synoviocytes. Synoviocytes grown from synovial tissue samples obtained from patients with RA were used between passages 4 and 9 to study the expression of several components of the canonical BMP signaling pathway by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Frames show the mRNA levels for a BMP receptors, b BMP ligands, c Smad protein family components, d BMP target genes, and e BMP antagonists. GNB2L1 was used as an endogenous control. Bars represent the mean (± standard deviation) of three to five independent experiments.
