p21 levels influence p-STAT3 and F4/80 levels in DMM mice. Synovial tissue samples were collected from the right knee (sham or DMM surgery) of (a, e) p21+/+ (sham), (b, f) p21−/− (sham), (c, g) p21+/+ (DMM), and (d, h) p21−/− (DMM) mice. The sections are stained for p-STAT3 Ab (upper panels) and F4/80 Ab (lower panels) and counterstained with methyl green. Ab antibody, DMM destabilization of the medial meniscus, p-STAT3 phosphorylated signal transducer and activator of transcription 3
