Effects of alpha-calcitonin gene-related peptide on osteoprotegerin and receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB ligand expression in MG-63 osteoblast-like cells exposed to polyethylene particles
TLDR
A possible osteoprotective influence of the neurotransmitter alpha-CGRP on particle stimulated osteoblast-like cells could be shown and might be important for bone metabolism under conditions of particle-induced osteolysis. Expand
Comparing wood–polymer composites with solid wood: the case of sustainability of terrace flooring
Due to emerging markets for environmentally benign products there is an increasing need for reliable evaluation and transparent information. In this regard, products made of natural materials, likeExpand
First record of the Phoenix Islands damselfish Plectroglyphidodon phoenixensis (Schultz, 1943) from the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands
BackgroundThe coral reef fishes of Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI), encompassed by the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM), are known for high levels of endemism, as well as forExpand
Effects of Substance P on RANKL and OPG mRNA Expression in MG-63 Osteoblast-like Cells Exposed to Polyethylene Particles
Introduction: Particle induced osteolysis is the most frequent cause of aseptic loosening after total joint replacement. This in-vitro study of MG-63 osteoblast-like cells focused on the effect ofExpand
Correction to: First record of the Phoenix Islands damselfish Plectroglyphidodon phoenixensis (Schultz, 1943) from the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands
Following publication of the original article (Kosaki and Hartl 2018), the authors reported an error in the caption of Fig. 2. The caption contains the reference “Schultz, 1043”, which should beExpand
Side-effects of the insect growth regulator triflumuron on spiders
TLDR
L Laboratory bioassays and small-scale field trials were conducted to study side-effects of the insect growth regulator triflumuron (TFM) on different spider species from Europe, Mauritania and Madagascar, providing further evidence that TFM is generally harmless to spiders. Expand
