Abstract:Osteoblastic cells respond to mechanical stimuli with alterations in proliferation and/or phenotypic expression. In some cases, these responses occur within only a few applications of stimuli (i.e. 'cycle-dependent trigger response') rather than in a dose-dependent manner. To explore potential mechanisms of the cycle dependent trigger response, we raised the following questions: (1) Does strain of bone cells alter gene expression; if so, how quickly does it occur and how long does it last? (2) Are alterations …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
