24157418 These studies identify an important role for Scx in regulating proteoglycans in embryonic and mature valve cells.
22796342 Scleraxis thus appears to play a key role in the transcriptional regulation of type I collagen synthesis.
21988170 collagen type I and several T/L-related proteoglycans were upregulated in hMSC-Scx cells
19828133 Scx and E47 might modulate the primary chondrogenesis by associating with the Sox9-related transcriptional complex, and by binding to the conserved E-box on Col2a1 promoter.
19087640 High glucose inhibited osteogenetic differentiation of periodontal ligament cells and up-regulated Scleraxis expression.
17129431 Scleraxis was expressed in periodontal ligament cells, bone marrow cells, and gingival fibroblasts, and may play an important role in differentiation of periodontal ligament cells.
