Co-expression of DKK-1 and sclerostin in subchondral bone of the proximal femoral heads from osteoarthritic hips
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a progressively degenerative joint disease influenced by structural and metabolic factors. There is growing evidence that subchondral bone is involved in both symptomatic and structural progression in OA. The Wnt pathway has been implicated in the progression of OA but the expression and function of the Wnt inhibitors, Dikkopf (DKK-1) and sclerostin (SOST), are unclear.We examined the regional distribution of DKK-1 and SOST in subchondral bone of the femoral head using ...Expand abstract
