Figure 3: PC inhibited OA meniscal cells-mediated calcification in micromass culture. Micromasses of OA meniscal cells were stained with alizarin red. In the absence of PC, calcium deposits were detected ((a); magnification 10x). In the presence of 1 mM PC, calcium deposits were abolished ((b); magnification 10x).
