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.

  • Effects of blockade of endogenous Gi signaling in Tie2+-expressing cells on bone formation in a mouse model of heterotopic ossification AuthorsLiping Wang, Dylan O'Carroll, Xuhui Liu, Theresa Roth, Hubert Kim, Bernard Halloran and Robert A. NissensonAbstractAvailable evidence indicates that some Tie2-expressing (Tie2+) cells serve as multipotent progenitors that have robust BMP-dependent osteogenic activity and mediate heterotopic ossification (HO). Since signaling through the G protein Gi is required for cell motility, we hypothesized that blockade of endogenous Gi signaling in Tie2+ cell populations would prevent HO formation. Blockade of Gi signaling in Tie2+ cells was accomplished in transgenic mice with expression of pertussis toxin (PTX) under the control of the Tie2 promoter (Tie2+/PTX+). Bone formation within HOs was evaluated 2 weeks after BMP injection. Expression of PTX in Tie2+ cells significantly reduced the bone ...

  • Increased CCN2, substance P and tissue fibrosis are associated with sensorimotor declines in a rat model of repetitive overuse injury AuthorsPaul W. Fisher, Yingjie Zhao, Mario C. Rico, Vicky S. Massicotte, Christine K. Wade, Judith Litvin, Geoffrey M. Bove, Steven N. Popoff, Mary F. BarbeAbstractKey clinical features of cumulative trauma disorders include pain, muscle weakness, and tissue fibrosis, although the etiology is still under investigation. Here, we characterized the temporal pattern of altered sensorimotor behaviors and inflammatory and fibrogenic processes occurring in forearm muscles and serum of young adult, female rats performing an operant, high repetition high force (HRHF) reaching and grasping task for 6, 12, or 18 weeks. Palmar mechanical sensitivity, cold temperature avoidance and spontaneous behavioral changes increased, while grip strength declined, in 18-week HRHF rats, compared to controls. Flexor digitorum muscles had increased ...
