Genetic and tissue level muscle-bone interactions during unloading and reambulation
(International Society of Musculoskeletal and Neuronal Interactions, 2016-09)
Little is known about interactions between muscle and bone during the removal and application of mechanical signals. Here, we applied 3wk of hindlimb unloading followed by 3wk of reambulation to a genetically heterogeneous ...
Low-intensity vibrations normalize adipogenesis-induced morphological and molecular changes of adult mesenchymal stem cells
(SAGE Publications, 2017-02)
Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells that are committed to adipogenesis were exposed daily to high-frequency low-intensity mechanical vibrations to understand molecular, morphological and ultrastructural adaptations to ...
Biofabrication of in situ self assembled 3D cell cultures in a weightlessness environment generated using magnetic levitation
(Nature Publishing, 2018-12)
Magnetic levitation though negative magnetophoresis is a novel technology to simulate weightlessness and has recently found applications in material and biological sciences. Yet little is known about the ability of the ...
Cytotoxic tolerance of healthy and cancerous bone cells to anti-microbial phenolic compounds depend on culture conditions
Carnosol and carnosic acid are polyphenolic compounds found in rosemary and sage with known anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties. Here, we addressed the potential use of carnosol and carnosic acid ...
Label-free density-based detection of adipocytes of bone marrow origin using magnetic levitation
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019-04)
Adipocyte hypertrophy and hyperplasia are important parameters in describing abnormalities in adipogenesis that are concomitant to diseases such as obesity, diabetes, anorexia nervosa and osteoporosis. Therefore, technical ...
