Objective: Recently, research has focused on bone marrow derived multipotent mesenchymal precursor cells (MPC) and osteoblasts (OB) for clinical use in bone engineering. However on a cellular and molecular level, the processes surrounding new bone formation remain poorly characterized. It was hypothesized[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
