Osteolysis leads to the release of TGFβ which, in turn, further induces PTHrP expression [ 11 ] . Other tumor-relevant genes, such as pai-1 or upa , can also be activated by TGFβ.

  • 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 ] .
