Beclin-1 is required for RANKL-induced osteoclast differentiation.


Beclin-1 plays a critical role in autophagy; however, it also contributes to other biological processes in a non-autophagic manner. Although studies have examined the non-autophagic role of autophagy proteins in the secretory function of osteoclasts (OC), the role of Beclin-1 is unclear. Here, we examined the role of Beclin-1 in OC differentiation, and… (More)
