Prostaglandin E₂ increases both osteoblastic and osteoclastic activity in the scales and participates in calcium metabolism in goldfish.


Using our original in vitro assay system with goldfish scales, we examined the direct effect of prostaglandin E₂ (PGE₂) on osteoclasts and osteoblasts in teleosts. In this assay system, we measured the activity of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) as respective indicators of each activity in osteoblasts and… (More)
