Regulated intercellular signaling is essential for the maintenance of bone mass. In recent work we described how osteoblasts and osteoclasts express functional receptors for the excitatory amino acid, glutamate, indicating that a signaling pathway analogous to synaptic neurotransmission exists in bone. Here, we show that osteoblasts also express the(More)
Identification of intercellular signalling pathways in bone represents an important therapeutic target for drug development in the treatment of clinical conditions such as osteoporosis. One such intercellular signalling pathway in bone appears to be mediated by the excitatory amino acid glutamate, exhibiting remarkable similarities to synaptic(More)
