  • Loss of DMP1 causes rickets and osteomalacia and identifies a role for osteocytes in mineral metabolism. Feng, Jian Q.; Ward, Leanne M.; Shiguang Liu; Yongbo Lu; Yixia Xie; Baozhi Yuan; Xijie Yu; Rauch, Frank; Davis, Siobhan I.; Shubin Zhang; Rios, Hector; Drezner, Marc K.; Quarles, L.

    The osteocyte, a terminally differentiated cell comprising 90%–95% of all bone cells, may have multiple functions, including acting as a mechanosensor in bone (re)modeling. Dentin matrix protein 1 (encoded by DMP1) is highly expressed in osteocytes and, when deleted in mice, results in a...
