2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin inhibits differentiation of normal diploid rat osteoblasts in vitro.

Abstract

The influence of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), a potent halogenated aromatic hydrocarbon, on the development of bone tissue-like organization in primary cultures of normal diploid calvarial-derived rat osteoblasts was examined. Initially, when placed in culture, these cells actively proliferate while expressing genes associated with… (More)
