Wnt signaling and osteoblastogenesis.
United States. In Rev Endocr Metab Disord, 2006
Studies of knockout and transgenic mouse models for Wnt pathway components like Wnt-10b, LRP-5/6, secreted frizzled-related protein-1, dickkopf-2, Axin-2 and beta-catenin have demonstrated that canonical signaling modulates most aspects of osteoblast physiology including proliferation, differentiation, bone matrix formation/mineralization and apoptosis as well as coupling to osteoclastogenesis and bone resorption.
New insights into inhibitors of adipogenesis.
Chapel Hill, United States. In Curr Opin Lipidol, 2004
Intracellular signaling molecules, which negatively regulate adipogenesis, include Pref-1, Foxo1, Foxa2, SMAD-3, WNT-10b, GATA-2 and GATA-3.
