Globus RK.Extracellular matrix and integrin interactions in the skeletal responses to mechanical loading and unloading.Clin Rev Bone Miner Metab. 2007 Dec;5(4):210-21.(PI: R.K. Globus)Note:
This issue, which just recently became available, contains six papers (the three papers listed here and three papers in the Other section) reviewing the response of the skeleton to mechanical load. There is an introduction by PI D.D. Bikle. The first page of each paper is available without cost at these links. This journal is not covered in PubMed.
