This kit is useful to evaluate osteoclast formation and activation.

Osteoclast Cell and Culture Media

Background

Osteoclast cells derive from bone marrow precursors. Due to their bone resorption activity, osteoclasts are instrumental in the control of bone mass. When cultured appropriately in the presence of M-CSF and RANKL, bone marrow osteoclast precursors differentiate into osteoblasts displaying bone resorption activity.

The Osteoclast Culture Kits contain bone marrow precursors from rat or mouse, and appropriate wash and growth media to insure osteoclast differentiation. Kits including an Osteo Assay Surface Plate - a 96-well plate coated with a manufactured material that supports osteoclast differentiation and is a substrate for osteoclast resorption activity - allow for the convenient and reproducible observation of osteoclast function.
