NF-κB inducible miR-30b-5p aggravates joint pain and loss of articular cartilage via targeting SIRT1-FoxO3a-mediated NLRP3 inflammasome


Figure 1. The miR-30b-5p profile was heightened in the joint tissues of OA patients and correlated with pro-inflammatory responses. The joint tissues of 15 non-OA patients and 40 OA patients were collected. (AG) The levels of miR-30b-5p, IL-1β, IL-6, TNF-α, IL-18, SIRT1 and FoxO3a in joint tissues were compared by RT-qPCR. (HM) Pearson analysis determined the correlation between miR-30b-5p, inflammatory cytokines and SIRT1/FoxO3a in OA patients’ joint tissues. ***P<0.001 (vs.Normal group).
