Knockout of miR-21-5p alleviates cartilage matrix degradation by targeting Gdf5 in temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis

Aims: The study aimed to determine whether the microRNA miR21-5p (MiR21) mediates temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis (TMJ-OA) by targeting growth differentiation factor 5 (Gdf5). Methods: TMJ-OA was induced in MiR21 knockout (KO) mice and wild-type (WT) mice by a unilateral anterior crossbite (U...
