OBJECTIVE Osteoblasts arise from multipotent mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) present in the bone marrow stroma and undergo further differentiation to osteocytes or bone cells. Many factors such as proteins present in the Wnt signaling pathway affect osteoblast differentiation. ROR2 is an orphan tyrosine kinase receptor that acts as a co-receptor in the(More)
OBJECTIVE Runt-related transcription factor 2 (RUNX2) and osterix (OSX) as two specific osteoblast transcription factors and distal-less homeobox 5 (DLX5) as a non-specific one are of paramount importance in regulating osteoblast related genes including osteocalcin, bone sialoprotein (BSP), osteopontin and collagen type Iα1. The present study sets out to(More)
pathway contributes to the heterogeneous differentiation potential of ES cells. Primordial germ cells (PGCs) are the precursors of the germ cell lineage. A method for the prolonged invitro culture of chicken PGCs, which retain the ability to colonise the gonad when introduced into developing embryos, has been described (van de Lav-oir etal., Nature 441(More)
