Figure 2

Methylation status of IL1B proximal promoter in articular OA chondrocytes under normoxic versus hypoxic conditions analysed by pyrosequencing (A); reduction on percentage methylation of specific CpG sites correlates with higher levels of gene expression in OA disease (B). Primary OA chondrocytes were cultured with or without IL-1β + OSM and 5-aza-dC for 5 weeks. Values are the mean ± SD (n = 5; *p < 0.1; **p < 0.05).
