By this means, it was reported that anabolic reaction belonging to bone and tendon cells was induced, and osteogenesis and tenogenesis increased, in addition to osteoblastic and tenoblastic activities.
[79] show that the mitochondrion-targeted antioxidant MitoQ protects against fluoroquinolone-induced oxidative stress and mitochondrial membrane damage in human Achilles tendon cells. In cells treated with MitoQ, the oxidative stress was lower and mitochondrial membrane potential was maintained.
Loss of homeostatic tension induces apoptosis in tendon cells: an in vitro study.
Although researchers are still investigating exactly how fluoroquinolones cause tendon injuries, studies suggest that they can degrade tendon cells. Tendons then easily tear or rupture.
Once the stem cells were surrounded by mature tendon tissue, researchers hoped that local chemical cues would induce the bone marrow stem cells to develop into tendon cells. Smith partnered with an entrepreneur to form a company, VetCell Bioscience, and began offering the treatment to horse owners.

In this study, we propose to investigate the effects of redox modulation on recruitment of tendon cells in vitro.
HA increase the synthesis of thin collagen fibrils with activation of tendon cells and macrophages following 6 days of hyaluronate therapy in horses [86].
The increased amount and duration of load on a tendon results in activation of protein kinases, oxygen free radicals, and apoptotic mediators, which when persistently activated cause tendon cells to undergo apoptosis.
