BMP2 Genetically Engineered MSCs and EPCs Promote Vascularized Bone Regeneration in Rat Critical-Sized Calvarial Bone Defects
EPCs increase new vascular growth, and that BMP2 gene modification for MSCs and EPCs dramatically promotes bone regeneration, which could ultimately enable clinicians to better reconstruct the craniofacial bone and avoid donor site morbidity for CSBDs.

Synthesis and characterization of nanocrystalline calcium sulfate for use in osseous regeneration
Evidence is given of the advantages of nCS as a scaffold to support osteoblastic cell activity and release kinetics for adsorbed platelet-derived growth factor and bone morphogenetic protein-2 suggests that nCS may serve as an appropriate vehicle for slow release delivery of these agents.

It is demonstrated that sphingolipids are mitogens for both human and rat osteoblastic cells with the MAPK pathway and calcium mediating in part these effects in a species specific manner.

P purified LPS from Bacteroides gingivalis exhibits high potency in its ability to stimulate 45Ca release from prelabeled fetal rat bones and to inhibit Ca influx into osteoclast-like cells.

It is suggested that nicotine affects bone metabolism by modulating proliferation, and Il-6 and TNF-alpha secretion, and the oppositional effect of smoking on HRT in subjects with bone loss.
Parathyromimetic effects of the ionophore, A23187, on bone cells and organ cultures.
Calcium transport in isolated bone cells. III. Effects of parathyroid hormone and cyclic 3',5'-AMP.
It is postulated that PTH increases the permeability of bone cell membranes to calcium by magnifying the effects of parathyroid hormone at 4 C, the membrane is relatively impermeable so the PTH effect is magnified.
