Considering the collaborative roles of MMPs and CCN2 in ECM remodeling, multiple molecular interplay between them is highly suspected. 2. 1. , 2004) (Fig. 4). Among those factors, the best-known upstream regulator of ccn2 is TGF-β. Indeed, CCN2 was Roles of CCN2/CTGF in the Control of Growth and Regeneration 43 described as an immediate-early gene that was induced by TGF-β in early studies. , 1995).

2001a). , 2002) and the functional property of LRP-1 as a endocytotic key molecule are particular of interest. The cell biological effects caused by intracellular CCN2 were also described previously. , 2001) (Fig. 4). 5. Processing of CCN2 and the role of its subfragments Post-translational processing is one of the common regulatory systems for proteins with critical functions. It is widely known that a number of proteases and hormones are produced primarily as inactive pro-forms that require specific proteolysis in order for them to become active.

Gross appearance of the CCN2- (A) and PBS- (B) hydrogel-collagen-treated articular cartilage 4 weeks after the operation. A defect, 2 mm in diameter and penetrating the subchondral bone plate, was prepared on the patellar groove of the femur with a microdrill. One microgram of rCCN2 that had been incorporated into gelatin hydrogel contained in a collagen sponge was lyophilized and implanted into the defect. Then, the patella was repositioned, and the medial aspect of the capsule was closed with a nylon suture.
