How DKK1 contributes to bone loss and maintenance

by Juliane Colditz


The European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS) challenged the attendees of its 2019 conference to create a Science Sketch to explain their project, and we are featuring the top 2 videos here! Learn more about how a protein called DKK1 (Dickkopf WNT Signaling Pathway Inhibitor 1) controls bone homeostasis and contributes to the bone loss seen in patients with estrogen deficiencies in this video created by Juliane Colditz from the Bone Lab at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus in Dresden.
