Expression and regulation of miR-27a and miR-140 levels in human chondrocytes. (A) Total RNA was extracted from normal (n = 6) and OA (n = 6) human chondrocytes and processed for real-time PCR/TaqMan. (B) OA chondrocytes (n = 5) were treated with cytokines and growth factors and miRNAs were extracted and processed for real-time PCR/TaqMan. Levels of the untreated (CTL) cells were given an arbitrary value of 1.
