STUDY DESIGN: This study was undertaken to document the effect of TGF-beta 1 and TGF-beta2 on the proliferation of lumbar facet joint capsule. OBJECTIVES: To study the effect of TGF-beta1 and TGF-beta2 on the proliferation of lumbar facet joint capsule and their proliferation mechanism. SUMMARY OF LITERATURE REVIEW: TGF-beta1 and TGF-beta proliferated mesenchymal tissue . This proliferatine mechanism was involved of PLC-gamma- 1 and tyrosine kinase in signalling. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Three lumbar facet joint capsule was cultured in DMEM-20 media. Its proliferatine and inhibited effect was studied under the metabolic inhibitors and trasnsforming growth factors . RESULTS: TGF-beta1, and TGF-beta2, increased cell proliferation dependent on time and dosage. Both of TGF-beta1, and TGF-beta 2, specific antisense oligonucleotide blocked tile autoc.me effect of growth factor, PLC-gamma-1 specific antisense oligonucleotide inhibited the effect of TGF-beta 1, and TGF-beta2, Genistin inhibited the effect of TGF-beta 1, and TGF-beta2, in time and dosage dependent manner. CONCLUSION: The cell proliferation of lumbar facet joint capsule was involved in PLC- gamma-1 and tyrosine kinase in signalling.
