  • The runx2 master transcription factor functions differently in chondrocytes and osteoblasts, two key cells in bone formation.Amjad Javed and Haiyan Chen examine the effect of a runx2 deletion on bone mineralization. Amjad Javed, Ph.D., of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, has taken a major step forward in understanding the bone development function of a gene called runx2, which could lead to future ways to speed bone healing, aid bone bioengineering, stem osteoporosis and reduce...
