Previous studies found that bone morphogenic proteins (BMPs) support osteoclast formation, but it is not clear whether this is a direct effect on osteoclasts or mediated indirectly through osteoblasts. We have shown that a mouse deficient for the BMP antagonist Twisted gastrulation suggested a direct positive role for BMPs on osteoclastogenesis. In this(More)
Analysis of myocardial deformation may provide important insight into left ventricular (LV) function. However, deformation parameters alone do not account for the variable mechanical load caused by LV pressure (LVP) variations. Regional myocardial work, however, has been shown to reflect regional metabolic demand and oxygen consumption and do therefore(More)
