0 Reviews
Brings together the latest research in the cellular and molecular biology of bones and teeth, including applications to medical and dental practice. An interdisciplinary group of contributors addresses control of bone formation, resorption and remodelling, osteoblast differentiation and osteoclast activity, factors influencing dental extracellular matrix biomineralization, non-collagen proteins in bone and their function, hormonal regulation of bone growth, and more.
