The BIOQUANT OSTEO software enables cutting-edge bone biology research in animal models and human biopsy. It supports both high-throughput automation and precise manual interaction for ASBMR standard bone histomorphometry in digital histology and microCT. Unique tools simplify skeletal phenotyping, characterize arthritis models, help quantify cancer metastasis, measure chondrocyte proliferation, aid in forensic anthropology, and quantify implant osseointegration.

  • Attenuation of hind-limb suspension-induced bone loss by curcumin is associated with reduced oxidative stress and increased vitamin D receptor expression AuthorsM. Xin, Y. Yang, D. Zhang, J. Wang, S. Chen, D. ZhouAbstractSummary Treatment with curcumin attenuated modeled microgravity-induced bone loss, possibly through abating oxidative stress and activating vitamin D receptor. Curcumin might be an effective countermeasure for microgravity-induced bone loss but remains to be tested in humans.Introduction Bone loss is one of the most important complications for human crewmembers who are exposed to long-term microgravity in space and also for bedridden people. The aim of the current study was to elucidate whether treatment with curcumin attenuated bone loss induced by microgravity.Methods We used hind-limb suspension (HLS) and rotary wall vessel bioreactor (RWVB) to model microgravity in vivo and in vitro, respectively ...

  • Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase signaling determines kidney size AuthorsJian-Kang Chen, Kojiro Nagai, Jianchun Chen, David Plieth, Masayo Hino, Jinxian Xu, Feng Sha, T. Alp Ikizler, C. Chad Quarles, David W. Threadgill, Eric G. Neilson, and Raymond C. HarrisAbstractKidney size adaptively increases as mammals grow and in response to the loss of 1 kidney. It is not clear how kidneys size themselves or if the processes that adapt kidney mass to lean body mass also mediate renal hypertrophy following unilateral nephrectomy (UNX). Here, we demonstrated that mice harboring a proximal tubule–specific deletion of Pten (PtenptKO) have greatly enlarged kidneys as the result of persistent activation of the class I PI3K/mTORC2/AKT pathway and an increase of the antiproliferative signals p21Cip1/WAF and p27Kip1 ...
