    • Dermatan sulfate proteoglycans from the mineralized matrix of the avian eggshell 

      Carrino, David A.; Rodriguez, Juan Pablo; Caplan, Arnold I. (Informa Healthcare, 1997)
      The eggshell of the chicken is a useful model to study matrix components which affect biomineralization. As an extension of our previous immunohistochemical work which suggested the presence of dermatan sulfate proteoglycans ...
    • Evidence for cooperative effects in human liver arginase 

      Carvajal Baeza, Nelson; Acoria García, Marina; Rodríguez Vives, Juan Pablo; Fernández Gálvez, Mireya; Martínez Winkler, Jorge (1982)
      The reaction kinetics of human liver arginase (l-arginine amidinohydrolase, EC 3.5.3.1) in terms of arginine concentration is strikingly altered by varying the pH. Lowering the pH from the optimum (9.5) toward a more ...
    • Matrix IGF-1 maintains bone mass by activation of mTOR in mesenchymal stem cells 

      Xian, Lingling; Wu, Xiangwei; Pang, Lijuan; Lou, Michael; Rosen, Clifford J.; Qiu, Tao; Crane, Janet; Frassica, Frank; Zhang, Liming; Rodriguez, Juan Pablo; Jia, Xiaofeng; Yakar, Shoshana; Xuan, Shouhong; Efstratiadis, Argiris; Wan, Mei; Cao, Xu (2012)
      Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), the most abundant growth factor in the bone matrix, maintains bone mass in adulthood. We now report that IGF-1 released from the bone matrix during bone remodeling stimulates osteoblastic ...
    • The avian eggshell extracellular matrix as a model for biomineralization 

      Carrino, David A.; Dennis, James E.; Wu, Tzong Ming; Arias, José L.; Fernandez, Maria S.; Rodriguez, Juan Pablo; Fink, David J.; Heuer, Arthur H.; Caplan, Arnold I. (1996)
      The avian eggshell is a complex, extracellularly assembled structure which contains both mineralized and non-mineralized regions. The composition of the hen eggshell organic matrix was examined by immunohistochemistry with ...
