Effect of transferrin on alkaline phosphatase activity and collagen synthesis in osteoblastic cells derived from newborn mouse calvaria.


The effect of transferrin was tested on osteoblastic cells (clone MC3T3-E1) cultured in serum-free medium containing 1% bovine serum albumin (BSA). Transferrin (Tf) stimulated increases of protein content and protein synthesis, but not of DNA content and cell number, in the cells. This protein also increased alkaline phosphatase activity and collagen… (More)
