Osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells is regulated by osteocyte and osteoblast cells in a simplified bone niche
(AO Research Institute Davos, 2012)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) within their native environment of the stem cell niche in bone receive biochemical stimuli from surrounding cells. These stimuli likely influence how MSCs differentiate to become bone precursors. ...
Differential β3 and β1 integrin expression in bone marrow and cortical bone of estrogen deficient rats
Integrin-based (beta(3)) attachments to the extracellular matrix (ECM) on osteocyte cell processes have recently been proposed to play an important role in facilitating osteocyte mechanosensation. However, it is not yet ...
