A cyclical process by which bone maintains a dynamic steady state through sequential resorption and formation of a small amount of bone at the same site; unlike the process of modeling, the size and shape of remodeled bone remain unchanged.

Are the cells in are body constantly being renewed

... nutrients necessary for your immune system to function correctly. Even your bones are constantly being broken down and rebuilt, a process called remodeling. Your body requires resources to carry out all of this activity. How well you fuel this renewal process determines how you feel. If you are ...

... extracellular matrix (ECM) fibrillar collagen content and abnormal diastolic function. However, the mechanisms causing this left ventricular (LV) remodeling remain incompletely defined. We hypothesized that one determinant of age-dependent remodeling is a change in the extent to which newly synthesized ...

Bone remodelling

Abstract The skeleton is a metabolically active organ that undergoes continuous remodeling throughout life. Bone remodeling involves the removal of mineralized bone by osteoclasts followed by the formation of bone matrix through the osteoblasts that subsequently ...

tissue-specific promoters

Yes, not only is it the transcription factors that are being expressed, but the accessibility of the DNA by remodeling the chromatin to either slide the nucleosomes over, or modify the histones (of the nucleosome) in such a way as to provide access to the gene's promoter regions.
