Gene expression of normal tendon, bone and cartilage samples. (a) Gene expression of COL1A2, scleraxis, tenascin-C, COMP and decorin in matched samples of tendon, cartilage and bone harvested from normal adult horses. (b) Gene expression of COL2A1, COL10A1 and SOX9 in matched samples of tendon, cartilage and bone harvested from normal adult horses. Relative gene expression data is represented graphically as log transformed values. P values were generated using a mixed effects linear regression model to allow for clustering within individual donors. (c) Gene expression of osteopontin, osteonectin and osteomodulin in matched samples of tendon, cartilage and bone harvested from normal adult horses.
