Osteoblasts and adipocytes are derived from common bone marrow stromal cells that play crucial roles in the generation of osteoclasts. Activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARgamma) induces adipogenic differentiation of stromal cells; however, whether this would affect osteoblast/osteoclast differentiation is unknown. Thus, we(More)
Mechanical and microstructural evidence indicates that a natural and a synthetic quartzite deformed by Newtonian dislocation (Harper-Dorn) creep at temperatures higher than 1073 K and stresses lower than 300 megapascals. The observation of this creep in these materials suggests that the lower crust may flow like a Newtonian viscous fluid by a dislocation(More)
