“Investigating the novel serine proteinase SPUVE and its role in cartilage resorption
The aim of this project is to fully characterise the trypsin-like serine proteinase SPUVE (also known as PRRS23). SPUVE is predicted to promote cartilage resorption in osteoarthritis since it is one of the most significantly up-regulated genes in cartilage from OA patients compared to non-diseased cartilage.
