Bone morphogenetic protein-induced heterotopic bone in osteopetrosis.


The objectives of the present research on the osteopetrotic mouse are to investigate the factors influencing heterotopic bone development. The osteopetrotic mutant was deficient in macrophage colony stimulating factor and failed to activate functioning monocytes, macrophages, and osteoclasts. Macrophage colony stimulating factor deficiency also caused a… (More)
