BMMs were seeded onto Osteo assay plates coated with thin calcium phosphate films (Corning, New York, USA), incubated with M-CSF and RANKL for 3 days until multinudeated osteoclasts were formed, and then they were treated with R.
It was proposed recently that at least 26 genes are involved in osteoclast differentiation and reg- ulation including tyrosine kinase gene M-CSF C-fos Pu.
TNF stimulates stem cells and RANKL and M-CSF osteoblast production, driving osteoclast formation.
Splenocytes were cultured in methylcellulose-based medium (StemCell Technologies, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) supplemented with M-CSF (30 ng/mL) for 12 days.
M-CSF is an important growth factor involved in the development of specific cells which are involved in the immune responses in the lungs.
These signaling pathways, together with other signaling pathways, including M-CSF, initiate the expression of NFATc1, a master transcription factor that regulates the differentiation of osteoclasts.
