Molecular aspects of bone formation and bone growth are discussed together with selected genetic disorders of the involved genes. Topics covered include: collagenopathies and osteogenesis imperfecta; core binding factor transcription factors and cleidocranial dysplasia; bone morphogenetic proteins and fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva; transforming growth factor beta, suture closure, and craniosynostosis; Indian hedgehog, parathyroid hormone-related protein together with its receptor, and Jansen metaphyseal chondrodysplasia.
