βig-h3 enhances chondrogenesis via promoting mesenchymal condensation in rat Achilles tendon heterotopic ossification model

Figure 3. βig-h3 is involved in chondrogenic differentiation for HO formation. (AE) The immunohistological staining of βig-h3+ cells (brown). (F, G) The represent X ray and statistics of rat with/without rβig-h3 injection. (HJ) The expression of Sox 9, Aggrecan, and Col II with/without coculture of macrophage cells. (K) The expression of βig-h3 with/without coculture of macrophage cells. *p < 0.05 as determined by one-way ANOVA test.
