Effects of insulin on in vitro bone formation in fetal rat parietal bone.


We examined the effects of insulin on bone formation including the mineralizing process. Twenty-day fetal rat parietal bones were cultured for 96 h on grids in a serum-free medium. For the precise assessment of bone formation, histomorphometry, with an image analyzing system, was used to measure the areas of mineralized bone and bone matrix, and the numbers… (More)
