Expression of transforming growth factor and basic fibroblast growth factor and core protein of proteoglycan in human vertebral cartilaginous endplate of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis

, : Expression of transforming growth factor and basic fibroblast growth factor and core protein of proteoglycan in human vertebral cartilaginous endplate of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Spine 30(17): 1973-1978

Study Design. To compare the expression of cytokines and core protein of proteoglycan in the scoliotic concave and convex cartilaginous endplate using immunohistochemical staining.Objectives. To define the possible role of transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF beta 1), basic fibroblast growth factor ( bFGF), and core protein of proteoglycan in the development of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.Summary of Background Data.
