RANKL (receptor activator of NFkappaB ligand) is a membrane-associated osteoblastic molecule, and along with macrophage-colony-stimulating factor, is crucial for osteoclast formation. RANKL is known to be strongly expressed in osteoblasts and lymphoid tissues. We have sought to determine the skeletal and extraskeletal sites of production of RANKL mRNA and protein using the techniques of in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry. Expression of RANKL mRNA and protein were determined in the...Expand abstract
