The effect of beta-alanyl-L-histidinato zinc (AHZ) on bone metabolism was investigated in osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cells. Cells were cultured for 3 days at 37 degrees C in a CO2 incubator in plastic dishes containing alpha-modified minimum essential medium supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum. After the cultures, the medium was exchanged for that(More)
The effect of simulated weightlessness on bone metabolism was investigated in skeletal unloading for 4 days. Skeletal unloading was designed using the model of hind-limb hang in rats. In hypokinetic state, rats were fed while the right hind limb was weighed down and the left hind limb was unloaded (a state of weightlessness). Bone metabolism in normal rats(More)
