Regulation of synthesis of osteoprotegerin and soluble receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappaB ligand in normal human osteoblasts via the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway by the application of cyclic tensile strain.

Abstract

Mechanical stress is thought to play an important role in bone remodeling. However, the correlation between mechanical stress and bone remodeling is poorly understood. In this context, using a model of cyclic tensile strain (CTS) toward human osteoblasts, synthesis of osteoprotegerin (OPG) and soluble receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappaB ligand… (More)
