INTRODUCTION The difficulty in re-growing and mineralizing new bone after severe fracture can result in loss of ambulation or limb. Here we describe the sequential roles of FGF-2 in inducing gene expression, cell growth and BMP-2 in gene expression and mineralization of bone. MATERIALS AND METHODS The regulation of gene expression was determined using(More)
Essential fatty acids are not only energy-rich molecules; they are also an important component of the membrane bilayer and recently have been implicated in induction of fatty acid synthase and other genes. Using gene chip analysis, we have found that arachidonic acid, an W-6 fatty acid, induced 11 genes that are regulated by nuclear factor-KB (NF-KB). We(More)
