Arthritis: What Wnt wrong?

...al knee replacement for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis (OA), or non-arthritic injury. Using several molecular methods, Wakitani's group identified Wnt-7b and -10a as genes that were significantly upregulated in the arthritic knee tissues. However, protein expression studies revealed that only Wnt-7b was...
