Free fatty acids display diverse effects as signalling molecules through GPCRs in addition to their involvement in cellular metabolism. GPR120, a G protein-coupled receptor for long-chain unsaturated fatty acids, has been reported to mediate adipogenesis in lipid metabolism. However, whether GPR120 also mediates osteogenesis and regulates BMMSCs remain(More)

Dystrophic scoliosis in neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) is difficult to treat. The purpose of this study was to review the clinical and radiological outcome of surgical treatment of dystrophic spinal curves in NF-1, for analyzing its efficacy, safety, and possible complications.This retrospective study consisted of 26 NF-1 patients with spinal deformities(More)
