Abstract: The Wnt signaling pathway plays a central role in bone and cartilage embryonic development, processes that are recapitulated during regeneration. Imbalance in such well conserved and complex system often contributes to numerous diseases, whereas controlled modulation of the Wnt signaling activity is an attractive target e.g. for improved fracture healing therapies. The first aim of the present thesis was to increase the knowledge of the underlying mechanisms that lead to cellular alterations in ... more
