Sample text

The association between micro cracks to bone remodeling raised the suggestion that dying osteocytes at the crack site may signal to the attraction of osteoclast precursors [150]. Also, intact osteocytes may inhibit resorption; when the osteocyte originating osteoclast restraining signals are alleviated, the osteoclast precursors could migrate toward the fracture site [151]. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) were found to be critical for the migration of the precursor cells. MMP14 in particular carves the path for osteoclastic cell migration through the degradation of non-mineralized matrices.
