High hydrostatic pressure (30 atm) enhances the apoptosis and inhibits the proteoglycan synthesis and extracellular matrix level of human nucleus pulposus cells via promoting the Wnt/β-catenin pathway

Zongting Shi, Jun He, Jian He & Yuan Xu
Hydrostatic pressure is known to regulate bovine nucleus pulposus cell metabolism, but its mechanism in human nucleus pulposus cells (HNPCs) remains obscure, which attracts our attention and becomes the focus in this study. Specifically, HNPCs were treated with SKL2001 (an agonist in the Wnt/β-catenin pathway) or XAV-939 (an inhibitor of the Wnt/β-catenin pathway), and pressurized under the hydrostatic pressure of 1, 3 and 30 atm. The viability, apoptosis and proteoglycan synthesis of treated HNPC were...
