Calcitonin has direct effects on3[H]-thymidine incorporation and alkaline phosphatase activity in human osteoblast-line cells


Calcitonin had direct and dose-dependent actions on human osteoblast-line cells (in serum-free monolayer culture) to increase cell proliferation and alkaline phosphatase activity/mg cell protein. Salmon calcitonin increased (human osteosarcoma) SaOS-2 cell proliferation, as evidenced by dose-dependent increases in3[H]-thymidine incorporation into DNA (e.g… (More)
