Figure 4

Synergistic effects of connective tissue growth factor for M-CSF/sRANKL-mediated osteoclastogenesis. Figure 4A shows pictures of TRAP staining and Figure 4B shows the numbers of TRAP positive cells. The TRAP positive cells stained by red were indicated by arrows. CTGF increased not only number but also morphological size of differentiated osteoclasts in combination with M-CSF/RANKL. Bars in Figure 4B indicate the SD.
