Effect of varying osmotic conditions on the response of bovine nucleus pulposus cells to growth factors and the activation of the ERK and Akt pathways.


Intervertebral disc and especially nucleus pulposus is characterized by low cellularity. Additionally, extreme variations in osmolality are observed in this tissue, as a result of its specific physicochemical environment, daily activities, or degeneration. In this study, we investigated the role of osmotic fluctuations in the proliferative response of… (More)
