The Adipogenic Phenotype in Aging Musculoskeletal Tissues: This RFA invites grant applications for basic research on aging-related mechanisms of formation and function of adipocytes within tissues of the aging musculoskeletal system, as well as effects of those adipocytes on the function of aging bone, muscle and cartilage. Studies that lead to understanding of the mechanism(s) by which adipocytes, and parenchymal cells that exhibit storage of fat, increase in tissues of the musculoskeletal system as a result of aging, and also determine the properties and effects of adipose and adipose-like cells in these tissues are specifically requested. Projects envisioned for support should investigate mechanisms and sources of cells involved in adipogenesis localized to aged musculoskeletal tissues and, as well, the properties of the increased adipose tissue and effects of increased adipogenesis on the surrounding aged musculoskeletal tissues. Multidisciplinary collaborations are likely to be necessary and are encourage! d.
