Welcome to RVC Repository

RVC Research Online compiles the research outputs of academics and clinical staff from the Royal Veterinary College.
The aim of the repository is to: provide a long-term home for research outputs from the College; supply access to full-text versions of these outputs; support the practice of open science across the entire range of the College's research activity; and, increase the impact and reach of the College's research.

Journal Article
Wells, L. M., Roberts, H. C., Luyten, F. P., & Roberts, S. J. (2023). Identifying Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor 3 as a Mediator of Periosteal Osteochondral Differentiation through the Construction of microRNA-Based Interaction Networks. Biology, 12(11), 1381. https://doi.org/10.3390/biology12111381

Human periosteum-derived progenitor cells (hPDCs) have the ability to differentiate towards both the chondrogenic and osteogenic lineages. This coordinated and complex osteochondrogenic differentiation process permits endochondral ossification and is...
