Long-term in vivo studies have highlighted smoking as a risk factor in postmenopausal osteoporosis, bone fracture incidence, and increased nonunion rates. In contrast, there are few data postulating the effects of smoking at the cellular level in human skeletal tissue. In this study, we present...
Cyclosporine A (CsA), a potent immunosuppressant used in transplantation, induces increased formation with excess resorption in the rat with resultant osteopenia. These findings are confirmed in the human model. Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is reported to be involved in the coupling of...
Sulfate conjugation is an important pathway in the metabolism of many drugs, xenobiotic compounds, and hormones. Sulfotransferases (SULTs) catalyze these reactions and have been detected and characterized in various human tissues including the liver and small intestine. Substrates for SULTs that...
Osteoclasts are generated from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMNCs) in the presence of soluble receptor activator of NFκB ligand (sRANKL) and macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF). We show that human osteoclast formation is enhanced when PBMNCs are cultured in the presence of...
We examined the effects of a third generation bisphosphonate (YM-175; disodium dihydrogen (cycloheptylamino)-methylene-1,1-bisphosphonate) on osteoclasts in osteosclerotic (oc/oc) mice to elucidate the cellular mechanism for incorporation of the bisphosphonate. Osteoclasts of oc/oc mice were in...
Demineralization and muscle atrophy, common among patients with hemiplegia, may be risk factors for future hip fracture. The aim of this longitudinal study was to investigate changes in lean (muscle) mass and bone mineral content (BMC) of the legs during the first year after stroke according to...
To test the hypothesis that the effect of trabecular microarchitecture on bone strength varies with the duration of estrogen loss, we evaluated the relationship between three-dimensional (3D) parameters for trabecular microarchitecture and bone minerals with the compressive load of the lumbar...
Previous studies have demonstrated that, in osteoblast-like MC3T3-E1 cells, various endothelin peptides and their homologous sarafotoxins generate prostaglandin E 2 (PGE 2 ) release through an ET A receptor subtype. In this study, biphasic Ca 2+ signals elicited with endothelin (ET)-1, ET-2,...
In mature trabecular bone, both density and trabecular orientation are adapted to external mechanical loads. Few quantitative data are available on the development of architecture and mechanical adaptation in juvenile trabecular bone. We studied the hypothesis that a time lag occurs between the...
