The current studies were intended to determine whether the anabolic effects of calcitonin (CT) on human osteoblast-line cells were (1) unique to osteosarcoma cells or also evident in osteoblast-line cells derived from normal human bone; and/or (2) associated with effects on several insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system components. Preliminary studies(More)
The current studies were intended to assess dose- and time-dependent effects of dietary zinc (Zn) on alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) activity in adult female mice. In the first study, mice were given 0, 1×, 2×, 3×, or 4× normal dietary Zn for 2 weeks, 4 weeks, or 6 weeks. In the second study, mice were(More)
Although quantitative measurement of skeletal alkaline phosphatase (sALP) activity in serum can provide an index of the rate of bone formation, the metabolic process that determines the release of sALP - from the surface of osteoblasts, into circulation—is unknown. The current studies were intended to examine the hypothesis that the release of sALP from(More)
