Table 1 Range of motion in the extension of rat knees

From: Overexpression of chaperonin containing T-complex polypeptide subunit zeta 2 (CCT6b) suppresses the functions of active fibroblasts in a rat model of joint contracture

Groups Number of joints Mean lack of knee extension ± SD (°)
Immobilized 12 82.3 ± 6.5*
Contralateral 12 20.7 ± 8.2
  1. Range of motion measurement corresponds to the angle missing to reach complete extension (0°) at the knee; torque = 667 g/cm
  2. SD standard deviation
  3. *Significant difference (p < 0.05) compared with the contralateral knee
