Ph.D. alum James Nishimuta’s paper, Adipokines Induce Catabolism of Newly Synthesized Matrix in Cartilage and Meniscus Tissues, was accepted for publication in a special issue of Connective Tissue Research focused on the meniscus. ¬†This research shows that resistin, a signaling molecule produced by fat and other joint tissues that can be elevated after injury, stimulates cell-mediated matrix destruction in the meniscus much more extensively than in cartilage. ¬†Congratulations, James!
