STUDY DESIGN Gene expression and protein localization of osteopontin (OPN) in spinal hyperostosis of the twy mouse by means of in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, and Northern blot analysis. OBJECTIVE To verify the involvement of OPN in spinal hyperostosis in the twy mouse and elucidate its ossification pattern at molecular levels. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA OPN is a molecule that consistently colocalizes with ectopic calcification in human pathologic conditions. The twy mouse… CONTINUE READING
