Brief description The present proposal will identify the importance of ephrinB1 during the deregulation of bone remodelling that occurs in osteoporosis, by deleting ephrinB1 in committed osteoblast precursor cells in a mouse model of osteoporosis. Knowledge gained from this proposal could potentially translate into alternative therapeutic treatment strategies for patients with osteoporosis with the use of Eph/ephrin targeted drugs currently being developed for cancer treatment.
