In the present study, we analyzed the effect of FYC on collagen and proteoglycan, including ADAMTS, MMPs, IL-1[beta], NO, PGE2, TGF-[beta], HSP70, OPG, and RANKL levels, which are involved in ECM degradation, as well as articular cartilage apoptotic and articular cartilage protective pathways.

In addition, inflammatory cytokines contribute to the increased synthesis and release of many proteolytic enzymes that decompose articular cartilage, which include the metallo-proteinases family MMPs and ADAMTS. Apart from their effect on chondrocytes, synovial cells and other articular, and periarticular tissues, inflammatory cytokines affect the cells of the immune system migrating to the site of inflammation.
Members of ADAMTS family have been implicated in neurodegenerative and neuroinflammatory diseases [137-139].

The breakdown of AGC is believed to be initiated by a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin-like motifs (ADAMTS)-4 and ADAMTS-5.[1]
In humans, nineteen ADAMTS proteins are encoded in the genome and they can be clustered into eight clades' based on their domain organization and known functions.
A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motif (ADAMTS) is a family of ECM proteinases comprising 19 secreted proteolytic enzymes that are structurally and functionally related to matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) (12).
