Osteoclasts differentiate from precursor cells of the monocyte-macrophage lineage and subsequently become activated to be competent for bone resorption through programs primarily governed by receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappaB ligand in cooperation with macrophage colony-stimulating factor. Proteins prominently expressed at late phases of(More)
The remodeling process of bone is accompanied by complex changes in the expression levels of various genes. Several approaches have been employed to detect differentially-expressed genes in regard to osteoclast differentiation. In order to identify the genes that are involved in osteoclast differentiation, we used a cDNAarray-nylon membrane. Among 1,200(More)
