Collagen I: an aberrantly expressed molecule in chondrocytes or a key player in tissue stabilization and repair both in vivo and in vitro?Download
Extrinsic repair techniques for the treatment of acute chondral injuries continue to yield suboptimal repair. The inability of these techniques to produce hyaline cartilage underscores the limitations in our understanding of basic chondrocyte biology. Conversely, intrinsic repair tissue has not...
Insights into the Role of Choline Kinase in Endochondral Bone Formation and Human Osteoblasts FunctionDownload
Choline kinase (CK) phosphorylates choline to phosphocholine (PCho) and is the first enzyme in the CDP-choline pathway that generates phosphatidylcholine (PC). CK has three isoforms (CKα1, CKα2 and CKβ) that are encoded by two genes, Chkα and Chkb. Inactivation of Chkα results in embryonic...
