RUNX proteins belong to a family of metazoan transcription factors that serve as master regulators of development. They are frequently deregulated in human cancers, indicating a prominent and, at times, paradoxical role in cancer pathogenesis.
|CSN26341||N-Acetylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglnaminehydrate||53678-77-6||Muramyl dipeptide, a synthetic immunoreactive peptide, is an inducer of bone formation through induction of Runx2. Muramyl dipeptide directly enhances osteoblast differentiation by up-regulating Runx2 gene expression through MAPK pathways. Muramyl dipeptide indirectly attenuates osteoclast differentiation through a decreased RANKL/OPG ratio.|
