Project description
This project focuses on defining specifically the contribution of collagen XIII in bone development and in stem regulation. Our previous studies indicate the involvement of collagen XIII in bone growth and remodeling. The proposed study will provide data to understand signaling mechanisms of collagen XIII in bone homeostasis and stem cell niche. Our findings will provide data for therapeutic applications e.g. against osteoporosis and tissue engineering in the orthopedic field.
