Regulation of matrix metalloproteinase-9 protein expression by 1α,25-(OH)2D3 during osteoclast differentiation

Abstract

To investigate 1α,25-(OH)₂D₃ regulation of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) protein expression during osteoclast formation and differentiation, receptor activator of nuclear factor kB ligand (RANKL) and macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) were administered to induce the differentiation of RAW264.7 cells into osteoclasts. The cells were incubated… (More)
