The Expression of PHOSPHO1, nSMase2 and TNAP is Coordinately Regulated by Continuous PTH Exposure in Mineralising Osteoblast Cultures (2016)
Journal Article
Houston, D. A., Myers, K., MacRae, V. E., Staines, K. A., & Farquharson, C. (2016). The Expression of PHOSPHO1, nSMase2 and TNAP is Coordinately Regulated by Continuous PTH Exposure in Mineralising Osteoblast Cultures. Calcified Tissue International, 99(5), 510-524. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00223-016-0176-9

Sustained exposure to high levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH), as observed in hyperparathyroidism, are catabolic to bone. The increase in the RANKL/OPG ratio in response to continuous PTH, resulting in increased osteoclastogenesis is well establishe...

Expression of Sulf1 and Sulf2 in cartilage, bone and endochondral fracture healing (2015)
Journal Article
Zaman, G., Farquharson, C., Staines, K. A., Newton, P. T., Dudhia, J., Chenu, C., …Dhoot, G. K. (2016). Expression of Sulf1 and Sulf2 in cartilage, bone and endochondral fracture healing. Histochemistry and Cell Biology, 145(1), 67-79. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00418-015-1365-8

SULF1/SULF2 enzymes regulate cell signalling that impacts the growth and differentiation of many tissues. To determine their possible role in cartilage and bone growth or repair, their expression was examined during development and bone fracture heal...

Identification of novel regulators of osteoblast matrix mineralization by time series transcriptional profiling (2013)
Journal Article
Staines, K. A., Zhu, D., Farquharson, C., & MacRae, V. E. (2014). Identification of novel regulators of osteoblast matrix mineralization by time series transcriptional profiling. Journal of Bone and Mineral Metabolism, 32(3), 240-251. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00774-013-0493-2

Bone mineralization is a carefully orchestrated process, regulated by a number of promoters and inhibitors that function to ensure effective hydroxyapatite formation. Here we sought to identify new regulators of this process through a time series mic...

MEPE is a novel regulator of growth plate cartilage mineralization (2012)
Journal Article
Staines, K. A., Mackenzie, N. C. W., Clarkin, C. E., Zelenchuk, L., Rowe, P. S., MacRae, V. E., & Farquharson, C. (2012). MEPE is a novel regulator of growth plate cartilage mineralization. Bone, 51(3), 418-430. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.bone.2012.06.022

Matrix extracellular phosphoglycoprotein (MEPE) belongs to the SIBLING protein family which play key roles in biomineralization. Although the growth plates of MEPE-overexpressing mice display severe morphological disruption, the expression and functi...
