Activation of osteoclasts and their acidification-dependent resorption of bone is thought to maintain proper serum calcium levels. Here we show that osteoclast dysfunction alone does not generally affect calcium homeostasis. Indeed, mice deficient in Src, encoding a tyrosine kinase critical for osteoclast activity, show signs of osteopetrosis, but without(More)
Lipoamide dehydrogenase was identified in serum and the optimal conditions for its assay at 30 degrees C were defined. The pH optimum in tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane buffer is 7.8, and activity is inhibited if buffer concentration exceeds 100 mmol/liter. Saturating concentrations of the substrates NAD+ and lipoamide are 3 mmol/liter and 5 mmol/liter,(More)
Heart and vascular endothelial cells from human pluripotent stem cells are of interest for applications in cell therapy and cardiovascular disease. Differentiation protocols are now sufficiently refined that production of cardiomyocytes, endothelial-and smooth muscle cells is fairly efficient and reproducible. Genetically marked hESCs have been produced in(More)
