- Transcriptional regulation restricting bone sialoprotein gene expression to both hypertrophic chondrocytes and osteoblastsGeorge L Barnes
Orthopaedic Research Laboratory of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Boston University Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts 02118, USA
J Cell Biochem 87:458-69. 2002..As such this is the first demonstration of a common regulatory mechanism utilized by both chondrocytes and osteoblasts for the tissue-restricted expression of the BSP gene...
- Osteoblast-related transcription factors Runx2 (Cbfa1/AML3) and MSX2 mediate the expression of bone sialoprotein in human metastatic breast cancer cellsGeorge L Barnes

Cancer Res 63:2631-7. 2003....
- Fidelity of Runx2 activity in breast cancer cells is required for the generation of metastases-associated osteolytic diseaseGeorge L Barnes
Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Boston University Medical Center, Massachusetts 02118, USA
Cancer Res 64:4506-13. 2004..These results demonstrate that Runx2 expression in breast cancer cells provides a molecular phenotype that enables the interactions between tumor cells and the bone microenvironment that lead to osteolytic disease...
- Stimulation of fracture-healing with systemic intermittent parathyroid hormone treatmentGeorge L Barnes

- Chondrocytes provide morphogenic signals that selectively induce osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cellsLouis C Gerstenfeld
Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Orthopedic Research, Boston University Medical Center, Massachusetts 02118, USA
J Bone Miner Res 17:221-30. 2002..These results show that chondrocytes express soluble morphogenetic factors that selectively promote osteogenesis, and this selective effect is not mimicked by an exogenously added BMP...
