The aim of this study was to explore the mechanisms of Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) protective on interleukin-1β (IL-1β) induced rat's mandibular condylar chondrocytes. Chondrocytes were exposure to Hyperbaric oxygen after induced inflammatory by IL-1β. After that, the expression of p-JNK and c-Jun was increased significantly, while the Sox-9 was decreased significantly, Immunofluorescence results showedthat the expression of p-JNK and p-c-Jun were decreased while the expression of Sox-9 and COL2 were increased in chondrocytes treated with IL-1β and selective JNK inhibitor. Hyperbaric oxygen might plays similar roles with the JNK-specific inhibitor SP600125, inducing the increase of Sox-9 and COL2expression. On the whole, IL-1β induced inflammatory in chondrocytes by activating the JNK/c-Jun signaling pathway and down-regulate the expression of Sox-9 and COL2. However, Hyperbaric oxygen can inhibits IL-1β induced inflammatory response in chondrocytes though block the JNK/c-Jun signaling pathway and up-regulate the expression of Sox-9 and COL2.
