Example sentences for: osteoclastic

How can you use “osteoclastic” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Evidence has been accumulated that TGFβ promotes late-stage tumorigenesis by stimulating angiogenesis and invasive behaviour of tumor cells, enhancing immunosuppression and supporting epithelial-mesenchymal transition of cancer cells [ 4 ] . Furthermore, TGFβ is believed to be part of a vicious circle in bone metastases as it gets released from osteoclast-degraded bone substance and subsequently stimulates PTHrP gene expression in nearby metastatic cancer cells which in turn leads to an activation of osteoclastic bone resorption [ 11 ] . Therefore, it is of great interest to understand in more detail the molecular aspects of TGFβ-mediated gene expression in metastatic breast cancer cells and to explore ways to interfere with this tumorigenic signalling.

  • The resolution of this issue is further clouded by the apparent contradictory findings that IFN-γ is an extremely potent anti-osteoclastogenic factor [ 38 ] but it can be found at high levels in sites of osteolysis [ 39 ] . To reconcile this controversy we performed a series of experiments aimed at understanding how IFN-γ could induce either bactericidal effects via macrophage activation or osteoclastic bone resorption, by influencing the same progenitor cell in the same bone environment.
