Parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) is a secreted factor expressed in almost all normal fetal and adult tissues. It is involved in a wide range of developmental and physiological processes, including serum calcium regulation. PTHrP is also associated with the progression of skeletal metastases, and its dysregulated expression in advanced cancers(More)
Interferon gamma (IFNγ) is a strong inhibitor of osteoclast differentiation and activity. However, its role in osteoblastogenesis has not been carefully examined. Using microarray expression analysis, we found that several IFNγ inducible genes were upregulated during early phases of osteoblast differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC). We(More)
Development of oncologic conditions is often accompanied by inadequate vitamin D status. The chemoprevention ability of this molecule is of high interest for breast cancer, the most common malignancy in women worldwide. Because current effective vitamin D analogues, including the naturally occurring active metabolite 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol(More)
The N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor plays an important role in the development of the autotomy after dorsal root ganglionectomy (DRGn). In this study, we further investigated the expression of the NMDAR1 in the spinal cord of the rats after right DRGn by immunohistochemical analyses. Computerized densitometric analysis of the NMDAR1 immunoreactivity(More)
