Expression of chondrogenic related genes in non-OAC (A), OAC (B), and OAC / non-OAC (C). Quantification of gene expression of COL1, COL2, COL10, SOX9, and AGCN was estimated by real-time PCR analysis. Data represent an average of five independent experiments ± SD. A: The results of non-OAC are expressed as the fold increase of expression in relation to passage 1 of non-OAC. B: The results of OAC are expressed as the fold increase of expression in relation to passage 1 of OAC. C: The results are expressed as the fold increase of expression corresponding to non-OAC at the same passages or pellet culture.* P<0.05 vs P1, † P<0.05 vs P2, # P<0.05 vs P3, by ANOVA. § P<0.05 vs non-OAC, by Mann-Whitney U-test OAC: chondrocyte from osteoarthritis patients, non-OAC; chondrocyte from young adult patient.
