Discovery and regulation of a novel type of bone-forming cell
Bone remodeling is maintained by a balance between bone-resorbing osteoclasts and bone-forming osteoblasts. Osteoblasts play a central role in skeletal homeostasis by creating bone tissues and controlling osteoclastic bone resorption through cytokine production. This study aims to clarify the functional diversity of osteoblasts, which have been considered a single population, and to develop novel strategies against skeletal disease targeting the osteoblast subtypes.
