Bone-derived macrophage chemotactic factors: Methods of extraction and further characterization


Mononuclear phagocytes have been implicated as important cellular elements in the process of bone resorption. We have postulated that the recruitment and migration of mononuclear phagocytes to bone occurs via a mechanism(s) in which bone-derived chemotactic factors (BDCF) are released from foci undergoing resorption. In the experiments presented here we… (More)
