Crosstalk between Notch and NF-κB signalling pathways in regulation of OA development. Increase of Jag1 expression during OA progression may be due to activation of NF-κB signalling, as well as occurring in endothelial cells. The non-canonical NF-κB proteins p52 and RELB may enhance transcriptional activity of Notch-ICD and Rbpj, as seen in rheumatoid arthritis model mice. Among the identified downstream factors, proteinases and inflammation-related molecules are probably common mediators of both pathways.
