A recurrent mutation in the BMP type I receptor ACVR1 causes inherited and sporadic fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva
Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder of skeletal malformations and progressive extraskeletal ossification. We mapped FOP to chromosome 2q23-24 by linkage… Expand

A potential therapy to enhance healing of bone tissue is to deliver isolated mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to the site of a lesion to promote bone formation. A key issue within this technology is the… Expand
Bisphosphonates: an update on mechanisms of action and how these relate to clinical efficacy.

Androgens have important effects on the human skeleton, and deficiency has been associated with bone loss in both males and females. The skeletal actions of androgens may be mediated directly via the… Expand
A review on macrophage responses to biomaterials.
Macrophages are the dominant infiltrating cells that respond rapidly to biomaterial implantation in soft and hard tissues. These cells and their fused morphologic variants, multinucleated giant cells… Expand
Structure of the Bone Morphogenetic Protein Receptor ALK2 and Implications for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva*

Background: Mutations in the ALK2 kinase cause extraskeletal bone formation. Results: We solved the structure of ALK2 in complex with the inhibitor FKBP12. Conclusion: Disease mutations break… Expand
Modelling nutrient transport in hollow fibre membrane bioreactors for growing three-dimensional bone tissue
Recent experimental studies suggest that hollow fibre membrane bioreactors (HFMBs) may be used to grow three-dimensional (3D) bone tissue, which may then be implanted into patients to repair skeletal… Expand
The relationship between the chemistry and biological activity of the bisphosphonates.
The ability of bisphosphonates ((HO)(2)P(O)CR(1)R(2)P(O)(OH)(2)) to inhibit bone resorption has been known since the 1960s, but it is only recently that a detailed molecular understanding of the… Expand
A New Class of Small Molecule Inhibitor of BMP Signaling
Growth factor signaling pathways are tightly regulated by phosphorylation and include many important kinase targets of interest for drug discovery. Small molecule inhibitors of the bone morphogenetic… Expand
