    J Cell Physiol 223:76-83. 2010
    ..RANKL induces osteoclastogenesis by stimulating DC-STAMP internalization in some OCP, and these DC-STAMP(lo) cells display the "master fusogen" phenotype. In contrast, DC-STAMP(hi) OCP can only act as mononuclear donors...

    Allergy Immunology and Rheumatology Division, School of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY 14642, USA
    J Bone Miner Res 27:79-92. 2012
    ..Taken together, these data show that DC-STAMP is a potential OCP biomarker in inflammatory arthritis. Moreover, in addition to its effect on cell fusion, DC-STAMP dynamically regulates cell signaling during osteoclastogenesis...
