OBJECTIVE@#To analyze the incidence and characteristics of fabella in the Chinese population and its correlation with pain in the posterolateral region of the knee joint and common peroneal nerve palsy.@*METHODS@#Total 732 patients including 405 males(450 knees) and 327 females(383 knees) who underwent unilateral or bilateral knee MR imaging from September 2015 to July 2019 were retrospectively evaluated. The basic information of all patients was extracted from the hospital's his system. The patient's medical records were checked by telephone follow-up or his system, and the number of patients with posterolateral knee pain and common peroneal nerve paralysis were recorded.@*RESULTS@#The overall prevalence of fabella was 48.38%, 23.53% in men and 24.85% in women, there was no significant difference between them (@*CONCLUSION@#The prevalence of fabella us in Chinese population is 48.38%. There is no relationship between the incidence of gastrocnemius and gender, but the incidence of fabella is positively correlated with age, pain in the posterolateral region of the knee joint and the occurrence of common peroneal nerve symptoms.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the regulatory mechanism of inducible nitric oxide synthase (NOS-2) expression related to proliferation of Tca8113 cells.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>RNAi mediated by short hairpin RNAs was utilized to knock down NOS-2, protein kinase C (PKC)-α, PKC-β and PKC-δ. Griess Reagent played a significant role on the detection of NO product after NOS-2 silence. The cell proliferation was determined by CCK8 method. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (q-PCR) was recruited to check the mRNA level of NOS-2, PKC-α, PKC-β and PKC-δ after treated by a variety of ways. Eventually, the measure of phosphorylation of extracellular regulated protein kinases (ERK)1/2 was performed by Western blotting in PMA-treated Tca8113 cells.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The cell viability of Tca8113 decreased obviously after transfected with NOS-2 siRNA (P<0.01). PKC reduced the expression level of NOS-2 mRNA (P<0.05). PKC-α, PKC-β and PKC-δ worked together to regulate the level of NOS-2 mRNA (P<0.01). Motigen-activated protein kinase kinase (MEK)/ERK signaling pathway regulated the level of NOS-2 mRNA negatively (P<0.05). PKC down regulated the level of NOS-2 mRNA through MEK/ERK signaling pathway (P<0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>PKC regulates the mRNA level of NOS-2 related to proliferation through MEK/ERK signaling pathway in Tca8113 cells.</p>
