  • Other genes in cluster A are involved in tissue remodeling (those encoding tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-1 (TIMP-1) [ 23], plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) [ 24], and chitinase [ 25, 26]) or in wound healing (tumor-associated antigen L6).

  • The Hh-signaling pathway comprises three main components: the Hh ligand; a transmembrane receptor circuit composed of the negative regulator Patched (Ptc) plus an activator, Smoothened (Smo); and finally a cytoplasmic complex that regulates the Cubitus interruptus (Ci) or Gli family of transcriptional effectors.

  • Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) is a serine proteinase inhibitor in the serpin superfamily [ 1 2 3 ] . This 50 kDa glycoprotein is apparently the most important physiological inhibitor of tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) and of urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA).

  • The potency of IFN-γ as a macrophage activator and osteoclast inhibitor suggests a prominent role for T cells and/or NK cells in the regulation of bone resorption, as these cells constitute the major source of IFN-γ [ 18 ] . A link between activated T cells and osteoclast inhibition by IFN-γ has been highlighted in a report by Takayanagi et al ., providing the first in vivo evidence that the immune system may influence osteoclastogenesis [ 38 ] . Interestingly, other groups have demonstrated that activated T cells induce osteoclastogenesis via upregulation of surface RANKL, presenting a dilemma regarding the role of activated T cells in osteoclastogenesis [ 20 40 45 ] .
