Dynamic Structures Essential For Cell Division

Dynamic Structures Essential For Cell Division

As microtubules are protein polymers; that assemble into dynamic structures; essential for cell division, shape, motility, and transport of intracellular cargos. Proteins that regulate microtubule function and activity have been implicated in disorders ranging from Alzheimer’s disease to cancer. By learning how microtubules work, scientists hope to find new ways to treat these diseases. The plus and…

Patellofemoral Joint

Open-Wedge High Tibial Osteotomy Impact Patellofemoral Joint Alignment

No study has yet assessed the effect of medial open-wedge high tibial osteotomy (MOWHTO); on the patellofemoral joint according to postoperative alignment. According to recently published results, medial open-wedge high tibial osteotomy adversely affected; the patellofemoral joint. Overcorrection causing excessive valgus alignment led to further progression of degenerative changes in the patellofemoral joints; and inferior…
