Project Description

The generation of human osteoclasts in culture is essential for the study of bone diseases. 

Our study aims to determine the proteins interacting with the surface proteins of human osteoclasts and the associated signalling pathways and functions. The formation of multinucleated osteoclasts and derived cells, as well as bone resorption, allow us to characterize these cells. Modulation of surface and matrix protein expression under different conditions will complete the study.

Because of the heterogeneity of the cells obtained at the end of culture, single-cell technologies will be applied.
