The role of DNA methylation in common skeletal disorders

Jesus Delgado-Calle, José A. Riancho

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Bone is a complex connective tissue composed of a calcified extracellular matrix in which different cell types are embedded. The complexity of bone is particularly evident in the cells present in this tissue and the multifaceted interactions between them [1]. Bone cells belong to two different families: the osteoblastic and the osteoclastic families (see Figure 1) [2,3].
