Mode of Action of Interleukin-6 on Mature Osteoclasts. Novel Interactions with Extracellular Ca2+ Sensing in the Regulation of Osteoclastic Bone Resorption
We describe a physiologically significant mechanism through which interleukin-6 (IL-6) and a rising ambient Ca2+ interact to regulate osteoclastic bone resorption. VOXEL-based confocal microscopy ofExpand
