Relative gene expression with the unloaded control as reference. The x- fold increases are plotted on a linear scale with the average log10 values. Left: catabolic genes, middle anabolic genes, right: the inflammatory genes. Statistical analysis revealed no significant difference between the groups. For d0 and unloaded control: n = 4; loading groups: n = 8. All values indicated as log10 fold increase ± SEM. *: Collagen II was not detectable.
