Impairment of bone healing by insulin receptor substrate-1 deficiency.

Abstract

Insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS-1) is an essential molecule for intracellular signaling of insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I and insulin, both of which are potent anabolic regulators of bone and cartilage metabolism. To investigate the role of IRS-1 in bone regeneration, fracture was introduced in the tibia, and its healing was compared between wild-type… (More)
