BACKGROUND Mice deficient in the large zinc finger protein, ZAS3, show postnatal increase in bone mass suggesting that ZAS3 is critical in the regulation of bone homeostasis. Although ZAS3 has been shown to inhibit osteoblast differentiation, its role on osteoclastogenesis has not been determined. In this report we demonstrated the role of ZAS3 in bone(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of the study was to compare Quasi-Static (QS) and harmonic (CSM) methods of indentation testing. Bone sections were obtained from mid-femoral diaphyses of dogs which received a pair of calcein labels. Labeled (n = 35) and unlabeled (n = 112) osteons were identified. Indentation modulus (IM) and hardness (H) for the CSM method were(More)
BACKGROUND The effects of surface roughness and carboxyl functionalization of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) mixed with collagen coated onto titanium (Ti) substrates on MC3T3-E1 osteoblasts were evaluated. METHODS The proliferation, differentiation, and matrix mineralization were investigated using (1) smooth-surfaced Ti discs, (2) Ti discs coated(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the ability to produce comparable superimpositions using hand tracing and digital methods (Dolphin v10). In addition, if the two methods were comparable, we wanted to determine if a difference existed between the best-fit cranial base superimposition and S-N superimpositions using the digital method. METHODS AND MATERIALS Sixty-four(More)
