Does FAK +/+ mice osteoblasts behave similar to wild mice osteoblasts?
I am wondering if FAK +\+ mice osteoblasts does behave similar as Wild type mice osteoblasts “in vitro” when both of them are used as a control in a given experiment?

What is the important time point in mesenchymal stem cell differentiation?
- Lei Shang
Hello, everyone. One thing I just want to ask you, because I am a freshman in bone engineering.
We all know that Mesenchymal stem cell could differentiate into osteocyte. In this process, Mesenchymal stem cell may first differentiate into osteoprogenitor, and then into pre-osteoblast, then into osteoblast, finally into osteocyte.
My question may state as following, "what is the important time point in Mesenchymal stem cell differentiation in every differentiation stage??" For instance, when Mesenchymal stem cell differentiate into osteoprogenitor or pre-osteoblast or osteoblast or osteocyte??
Thanks a lot.
Can I get human fetal osteoblast (hFOB 1.19) cells in India from any research lab?
- Yogendra Nayak
To assess the antiosteoporotic activity in vitro, In literature, many manuscripts explain the use of hFOB cells. We enquired at NCCS, they do not have.
The hFOB cells requires 32 degree for sub-culturing and maintaining. We have cell lab, but we grow cancer cells and normal cells which grow at 37 degree. Is there any alternative to hFOB?

Proper way to dilute PGD2 powder?
- William Bracamonte-Baran
I got PGD2 powder from Sigma-Aldrich ( P5172-1MG).
I have read works diluting it in 100% EtOH and DMSO. In my design the amount of any diluent will be far below toxic levels in vitro.
Still wanted to respectfully ask this Forum which one would be the better diluent considering that further 1:10 dilution with PBS will be done.
Thanks a lot!

How to identify enzyme/gene utilizing particular substrate?
- Tomáš Hluska
When I feed a particular substance to pea plant, I see conversion to unknown compound.
I don't know, what is the product, I don't know (obviously), what is the reaction and I do not know required conditions (like cofactor(s) etc.).
How would you proceed to identify the responsible enzyme/gene?
I intend to identify the product, as that is the easiest thing to do right now, I guess. But I'm afraid that won't help me much, as I won't be able to specify the conditions.
Because any in vitro measurement/detection is ruled out because of the lack of knowledge about the reaction conditions, it seems to me like the only option is to go in planta. What I could come up with is either random mutagenesis or finding two genotypes with different activities and then trying to cross them.
However, for that I would need to have either reliable sensor to monitor amount of my compound in planta, or feed it to the plant and then isolate and measure on HPLC/MS (not very high-throughput).
I was also thinking about utilizing cDNA library, but so far, I did not come up with simple way to do so.
