Abstract

Nutrient levels are known to influence the development of osteoarthritis (OA), presumably by modulating levels of matrix biosynthesis and degradation. These processes may be affected by ascorbic acid (AA), an antioxidant which acts as a cofactor for numerous biochemical reactions and is essential for post-translational modifications of collagen. In this study we examined the expression of SVCT2, the only known Sodium coupled vitamin C transporter isoform present in articular cartilage, in human articular cartilage explants derived from both normal and osteoarthritis articular cartilage.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 09 January 2014.
All research outputs
#4,606,829
of 6,229,412 outputs
Outputs from BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders
#1,458
of 1,846 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#97,569
of 146,302 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders
#78
of 93 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 6,229,412 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,846 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.5. This one is in the 8th percentile – i.e., 8% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 146,302 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 93 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
