We have previously shown that an exogenous type I collagen matrix can regulate expression of mRNA for parathyroid hormone (PTH)-related protein (PTHrP) and its receptor, the PTH/PTHrP receptor, in the UMR106-06 osteogenic sarcoma cell line, which is considered to be representative of a relatively mature osteoblast phenotype. Consistent with those data, we(More)
Advanced glycation endproduct (AGE), whose formation is accelerated on long lived extracellular matrix proteins in diabetes, is implicated in diabetic complications in various tissues. Type I collagen is the predominant matrix protein of bone and plays an important role in bone cell-matrix interactions. We have previously reported the accelerated(More)
We have previously shown that the response of osteoblasts to parathyroid hormone (PTH) can be influenced at the receptor level by growth on the physiological substrate, type I collagen, or by treatment with retinoic acid. We have also shown differential expression of genes when cells of the osteoblast lineage are grown on type I collagen. The aim of this(More)
A 69-year-old woman, a diabetic, presented to emergency unit for severe back pain that occurred three weeks of her having sustained a fall and blow in the back. Upon admission, she developed elevated body temperature, urinary retention and severe paraparesis of lower extremities. Laboratory testing showed increased levels of erythrocyte sedimentation rate(More)
