Interactions between undifferentiated and osteogenically differentiated mesenchymal stromal cells during osteogenesis

Zhou, Yinghong (2013) Interactions between undifferentiated and osteogenically differentiated mesenchymal stromal cells during osteogenesis. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


The body of work presented in this dissertation has demonstrated that the interactions between donor cells and host cells are critical for bone repair and regeneration. The donor cells secrete VEGF which activates the downstream PI3K/Akt signaling pathway, ultimately leading to host cell recruitment and robust bone regeneration. The findings from this dissertation may provide a scientific rationale for the development of novel therapeutic strategies in the treatment and management of bone defects.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
