Heat shock protein 70 level of synovial fluid in rheumatoid arthritis versus osteoarthritis: a comparative study

Authers: Gharibdoost F., Samadi F., Taghipoor R., Akbarian M., Shahram F., Nadji A., Jamshidi A R, Davatchi F.

Abstract: Background: Heat-shock proteins are part of a strictly controlled biological system that allows organisms to respond to environmental stresses.

In addition, synovial cells are exposed to mechanical stress caused by joint motion. The effects of mechanical stress on the metabolism of the synovial cells may be substantial, even pathogenic. Heat-shock proteins are often implicated ... سال انتشار: 2007
