Bone Marrow Adipogenic Lineage Precursors (MALPs) Promote Osteoclastogenesis in Bone Remodeling and Pathologic Bone Loss

Scientists demonstrated that mice with RANKL deficiency in marrow adipogenic lineage precursors MALPs have a drastic increase in trabecular bone mass in long bones and vertebrae starting from one month of age, while their cortical bone appears normal.

Mechanical Suppression of Breast Cancer Cell Invasion and Paracrine Signaling to Osteoclasts Requires Nucleo-Cytoskeletal Connectivity

Researchers examined the mechanisms through which cancer cells sense and respond to low-magnitude mechanical signals introduced in the form of vibration. Low-magnitude, high-frequency vibration was applied to human breast cancer cells in the form of low-intensity vibration.

Transcriptomic Profiling of Feline Teeth Highlights the Role of Matrix Metalloproteinase 9 (MMP9) in Tooth Resorption

Apaired comparison of teeth from the same cat with and without signs of resorption identified 1,732 differentially expressed genes, many of which were characteristic of osteoclast activity and differentiation, in particular MMP9.

H3.3G34W Promotes Growth and Impedes Differentiation of Osteoblast-Like Mesenchymal Progenitors in Giant Cell Tumour of Bone

Investigators showed that H3.3K36me3 loss on mutant H3.3 altered the deposition of the repressive H3K27me3 mark from intergenic to genic regions, beyond areas of H3.3 deposition. This promoted redistribution of other chromatin marks and aberrant transcription, altering cell fate in mesenchymal progenitors and hindering differentiation.
