The response to sex steroid hormones and vitamin D of cultured osteoblasts derived from ovariectomized mice with and without 17β-estradiol pretreatment


This study investigated whether 17β-estradiol (E2) may have different effects on osteoblasts derived from estrogen-deficient ovariectomized (OVX) mice compared to sham-operated normal animals. We studied the specific effects of 17β-estradiol on the differentiation and function of cultured osteoblasts derived from these groups of animals, with or without… (More)
