Transcription factors play a key role in determination of the fate of the cells in osteoblastic and chondrocytic lineage. A runt family member, Cbfa, is indispensable for osteoblastic differentiation. Sox 9 and scleraxis are involved in the phenotypic expression in chondrocytes and the cells of early stage connective tissues. These transcription factors… CONTINUE READING
