A chimeric form of osteoprotegerin inhibits hypercalcemia and bone resorption induced by IL-1beta, TNF-alpha, PTH, PTHrP, and 1, 25(OH)2D3.

Abstract

Osteoprotegerin (OPG) is a secreted protein that inhibits osteoclast formation and activity and appears to be a critical regulator of bone mass and metabolism. In the current study, mice were challenged with various cytokines and hormones (interleukin-1beta, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, parathyroid hormone, parathyroid hormone-related protein, and 1alpha,25… (More)
