These osteoblasts are fully differentiated cells with alkaline phosphatase activity and the ability to form mineralized nodules. We show that the transcriptional regulation of osteoblastic markers can be modulated by P2X7R activity or blockade thereby influencing the differentiation, proliferation and bone matrix formation by these primary human osteoblasts.
