Resumen: Physiological and pathological bone resorption is mediated by osteoclasts, multinucleated cells which are formed by the fusion of monocyte / macrophage precursors. The canonical pathway of osteoclast formation requires the presence of the receptor activator for NFkB ligand (RANKL) and macrophage colony stimulating factor (M-CSF). Noncanonical pathways of osteoclast formation have been described in which cytokines / growth factors can substitute for RANKL or M-CSF to induce osteoclast formation. Substitutes for RANKL include LIGHT, TNFa and interleukins 6, 11 and 8. M-CSF substitutes include vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), placental growth factor (PlGF), FLt-3 ligand and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF). These growth factors can also influence canonical (RANKL / M-CSFinduced) osteoclast formation. Both canonical and noncanonical pathways of osteoclast formation play a role in the formation of osteolytic lesions where there is increased osteoclast formation and activity, such as in giant cell tumour of bone.
