ApoPep-1 binds to grade II osteoarthritis (OA) cartilage before loss of type II collagen. ApoPep-1 was injected 2 weeks after sham operation or surgical destabilization of medial meniscus (DMM) and joints were harvested. The joints were cryo-sectioned and stained for 4′, 6′ -diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI, blue) and Collagen 2 (red). Yellow ApoPep-1. Scale bar 50 μm
