Fracture healing is a unique postnatal repair process in which the events of endochondral and intramembranous bone formation follow a definable temporal sequence. The temporal patterns of messenger RNA (mRNA) expression for members of the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) superfamily were examined over a 28-day period of fracture healing in mouse tibias. Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) and growth and differentiation factor 8 (GDF8) showed maximal expression on day 1 after fracture… CONTINUE READING
