Regulation by ultrasound treatment on the integrin expression and differentiation of osteoblasts.
It has been shown that ultrasound (US) stimulation accelerates fracture healing in the animal models and in clinical studies. However, the mechanism by which US achieves these outcomes is not clear.Expand

Advanced glycation end-products induce skeletal muscle atrophy and dysfunction in diabetic mice via a RAGE-mediated, AMPK-down-regulated, Akt pathway.
Diabetic myopathy, a less studied complication of diabetes, exhibits the clinical observations characterized by a less muscle mass, muscle weakness and a reduced physical functional capacity.Expand

Characterization of FN1–FGFR1 and novel FN1–FGF1 fusion genes in a large series of phosphaturic mesenchymal tumors
Phosphaturic mesenchymal tumors typically cause paraneoplastic osteomalacia, chiefly as a result of FGF23 secretion. In a prior study, we identified FN1–FGFR1 fusion in 9 of 15 phosphaturicExpand

Factors associated with low bone mass in the hemodialysis patients – a cross-sectional correlation study
BackgroundLow bone mass is common in end-stage renal disease patients, especially those undergoing hemodialysis. It can lead to serious bone health problems such as fragility fractures. The purposeExpand

Onion decreases the ovariectomy-induced osteopenia in young adult rats.
It has been suggested that fruit and vegetable consumption are associated with good bone health. Onion, in particular, has been verified in its efficacy in bone resorption activity. In this study, weExpand

Rhodostomin inhibits thrombin-enhanced adhesion of ROS 17/2.8 cells through the blockade of alphavbeta3 integrin.
Osteosarcoma is a very malignant bone tumor which has a high metastatic potential and usually lead to poor prognosis. The adhesion of tumor cells to the endothelium or extracellular matrix (ECM) isExpand
