Background: Infantile malignant osteopetrosis (IMO) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by non-functional osteoclasts and a fatal outcome early in childhood. About 50% of patients have mutations in the TCIRG1 gene. Methods: IMO iPSCs were generated from a patient carrying a homozygous ...

Objectives: Here, we tested the hypothesis that human M-CSF (hM-CSF) overexpressed in cord blood (CB) CD34+ cells would induce differentiation and survival of monocytes and osteoclasts in vitro and in vivo. Methods: Human M-CSF was overexpressed in cord blood CD34+ cells using a lentiviral vector. ...
