Molecule transmits estrogen's bone-saving signal through T cells

R. John Davenport

Abstract: In many companies, the CEO snags the press, but it's the mailroom employee who keeps things running smoothly. New research reveals how an unsung cellular hero similarly helps estrogen accomplish its famous bone-saving achievements. The result reveals a crucial step in the bone-preserving chain of command and might point researchers toward new ways of bolstering bone in older women.
