Bone morphogenetic protein-2 and transforming growth factor-beta2 interact to modulate human bone marrow stromal cell proliferation and differentiation.


Osteoprogenitor cells in the human bone marrow stroma can be induced to differentiate into osteoblasts under stimulation with hormonal and local factors. We previously showed that human bone marrow stromal (HBMS) cells respond to dexamethasone and vitamin D by expressing several osteoblastic markers. In this study, we investigated the effects and… (More)
