Resumen: Objective: To investigate the expression pattern of cell cycle related gene products in active and quiescent Rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Methods: Synovial tissue from 20 patients with active proliferative RA and 28 patients with RA in remission was immunohistochemically examined for expression of p53, p63, p21, p27, p16, cyclin D1, CDK4, RB, E2F, Ki-67 on tissue microarrays and by DNA flow cytometry for cell cycle phases. Results: Elevated expression of p53 and p27 was found in synovial lining and in stromal cells in proliferative active RA. In the remission stage this finding was confined to the synovial lining. Most of the cells were in the G0-phase. Ki-67 proliferation index was maximum 10% in synovial cells. Conclusion: The p53 pathway is activated in synovial cells in active RA as well as in quiescent stage of disease. Differences in the spatial expression pattern of proteins involved in the p53 pathway in RA in remission compared to actively proliferating RA reflect the phasic nature of the disease and support in our opinion the concept of adaptive role of p53 pathway in RA
