Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. It is characterized by cartilage destruction and bone remodeling, mediated in part by synovial fibroblasts (SFs). Given the functional significance of cadherins in these cells, we aimed at determining the role of genetic variants of N-cadherin (CDH2) in OA of the knee and hip. Six single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the genomic region of ...
