Progressive development of the rat osteoblast phenotype in vitro: Reciprocal relationships in expression of genes associated with osteoblast proliferation and differentiation during formation of the
The relationship of cell proliferation to the temporal expression of genes characterizing a developmental sequence associated with bone cell differentiation was examined in primary diploid culturesExpand

Canonical WNT Signaling Promotes Osteogenesis by Directly Stimulating Runx2 Gene Expression*
Both activating and null mutations of proteins required for canonical WNT signaling have revealed the importance of this pathway for normal skeletal development. However, tissue-specificExpand

A microRNA signature for a BMP2-induced osteoblast lineage commitment program
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are potent morphogens that activate transcriptional programs for lineage determination. How BMP induction of a phenotype is coordinated with microRNAs (miRNAs) thatExpand

Molecular mechanisms mediating proliferation/differentiation interrelationships during progressive development of the osteoblast phenotype.
I. Introduction A FUNCTIONAL relationship between cell growth and the initiation and progression of events associated with differentiation has been a fundamental question challenging developmentalExpand

Self‐renewal of human embryonic stem cells is supported by a shortened G1 cell cycle phase
Competency for self‐renewal of human embryonic stem (ES) cells is linked to pluripotency. However, there is a critical paucity of fundamental parameters of human ES cell division. In this study weExpand

Networks and hubs for the transcriptional control of osteoblastogenesis
We present an overview of the concepts of tissue-specific transcriptional control mechanisms essential for development of the bone cell phenotype. BMP2 induced transcription factors constitute aExpand

Osteoblast differentiation and skeletal development are regulated by Mdm2–p53 signaling
Mdm2 is required to negatively regulate p53 activity at the peri-implantation stage of early mouse development. However, the absolute requirement for Mdm2 throughout embryogenesis and inExpand
