In cell culture studies, dried plum (Prunus domestica L.) polyphenols increased osteoblast alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, mineralized nodule formation, and the expression of the bone marker genes runt-related transcription factor 2 (RUNX2) and osterix. The purpose of this study was to determine whether human serum collected 1 and 2 h after dried plum ingestion influenced osteoblast cell activity and gene expression. Five healthy women ingested 100 g of dried plum, and serum samples were collected at baseline (before dried plum ingestion) and 1 and 2 h postingestion of dried plum...

Advances in mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and cell replacement therapies are promising approaches to treat cartilage and bone defects since substantial differentiation capacities of MSCs match the demands of tissue regeneration. Our understanding of the dynamic process requiring indispensable differentiation of MSCs remains limited. Herein, we describe the role of RHEB (Ras homolog enriched in brain) regulating gene signature for differentiation of human adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells (ASCs) into chondrogenic, osteogenic, and adipogenic lineages...

Cancer survivors after radiotherapy may suffer a variety of bone‑related adverse side effects, including radioactive osteoporosis and fractures. Localized irradiation is a common treatment modality for malignancies. Recently, a series of reactions and injuries called indirect effects (remote changes in bone when other parts of the body are irradiated) have been reported on the indirect irradiated area of bone tissue after radiotherapy. To address this issue, we developed a rat localized irradiation model...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs or miRs) have been shown to play a critical role in osteoblast differentiation. miR-10b has been found to be downregulated during osteoblast differentiation; however, its precise effect on osteoblast differentiation remains unknown. In this study, we aimed to investigate the potential role of miR-10b and the potential underlying mechanism in regulating osteoblast differentiation. We found that miR-10b was downregulated during osteoblast differentiation. Overexpression of miR-10b inhibited osteoblast differentiation, whereas the suppression of miR-10b promoted osteoblast differentiation...

BACKGROUND: The transition of aortic valve interstitial cells (AVICs) to myofibroblastic and osteoblast-like phenotypes plays a critical role in calcific aortic valve disease progression. Several microRNAs (miRs) are implicated in stem cell differentiation into osteoblast. We hypothesized that an epigenetic mechanism regulates valvular pro-osteogenic activity. This study examined miR profile in AVICs of calcified valves and identified miRs responsible for AVIC phenotypic transition. METHODS AND RESULTS: AVICs were isolated from normal and diseased valves...

INTRODUCTION: Different concentrations of parathyroid hormone [1-34] (PTH [1-34]) can have totally opposite effects on osteoblasts. Intermittent stimulation with PTH can significantly increase bone mineral density in vitro, mainly through the protein kinase A (PKA) signaling pathway, which phosphorylates runt-related transcription factor 2 (Runx2). The ClC-3 chloride channel, an important anion channel, can also promote osteogenesis via the Runx2 pathway based on recent studies. The purpose of our study, therefore, is to research whether the ClC-3 chloride channel has an effect on PTH osteodifferentiation in MC3T3-E1 cells...

The development of scaffold formulations based on extracellular matrix-inspired synthetic materials constitutes an important resource for the advance of cell-based therapies in bone tissue engineering approaches, where both cell and scaffold implantation are often needed. Culturing cells on porous microcarriers (MCs) allows cell expansion in a three-dimensional microenvironment and constitutes a possible solution for minimally invasive cell and scaffold simultaneous delivery, but the reduced pore dimension and pore interconnection diameter of several commercially available microcarriers limits de facto cell ingrowth, and ultimately their suitability for in vivo cell delivery...

Combination of tissue-engineered bone scaffolds with cell-adhesive, osteoconductive, or osteoinductive biomolecules is a critical strategy to improve their properties that significantly influence cellular behaviors, such as adhesion, proliferation, and differentiation, which is beneficial for critical-sized bone defects repairing. However, the traditional surface modification techniques, such as physical adsorption, coating, and plasma treatment, et al, have great limitations for immobilization of bioactive molecules due to undesirable controlled delivery performance or overly complex multistep procedures...

Non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma is ionized matter, composed of highly reactive species that include positive ions, negative ions, free radicals, neutral atoms, and molecules. Recent reports have suggested that non-thermal biocompatible plasma (NBP) can selectively kill a variety of cancer cells, and promote stem cell differentiation. However as of yet, the regulation of proliferation and differentiation potential of NBP has been poorly understood.Here, we investigated the effects of NBP on the osteogenic differentiation of precursor cell lines of osteoblasts, MC3T3 E1 and SaOS-2...

Effects of the chemotherapeutic agent etoposide on the skeleton were determined in mice. Numbers of bone marrow cells were reduced and myeloid cells were increased. Bone volume was significantly decreased with signs of inhibition of bone formation. Etoposide after pre-treatment with zoledronic acid still reduced bone but overall bone volume was higher than with etoposide alone. INTRODUCTION: Chemotherapeutics target rapidly dividing tumor cells yet also impact hematopoietic and immune cells in an off target manner...

An imbalance between bone resorption by osteoclasts and bone formation by osteoblasts can cause bone loss and bone-related disease. In a previous search for natural products that increase osteogenic activity, we found that 5,6-dehydrokawain (1) from Alpinia zerumbet promotes osteoblastogenesis. In this study, we synthesized and evaluated series of 5,6-dehydrokawain analogs. Our structure-activity relationships revealed that alkylation of para or meta position of aromatic ring of 1 promote osteogenic activity...

Bone tissue engineering scaffolds for the reconstruction of large bone defects should simultaneously promote osteogenic differentiation and avoid postoperative infection. Herein, we develop, for the first time, Ag-loaded MgSrFe-layered double hydroxide/chitosan (Ag-MgSrFe/CS) composite scaffold. This scaffold exhibits three-dimensional interconnected macroporous structure with a pore size of 100-300 μm. The layered double hydroxide nanoplates in the Ag-MgSrFe/CS show lateral sizes of 200-400 nm and thicknesses of ∼50 nm, and the Ag nanoparticles with particle sizes of ∼20 nm are uniformly dispersed on the scaffold surfaces...

The coupling of osteoblasts and osteocytes by connexin43 (Cx43) gap junctions permits the sharing of second messengers that coordinate bone cell function and cortical bone acquisition. However, details of how Cx43 converts shared second messengers into signals that converge onto essential osteogenic processes are incomplete. Here, we use in vitro and in vivo methods to show that Cx43 and Runx2 functionally interact to regulate osteoblast gene expression and proliferation, ultimately affecting cortical bone properties...

Transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-β1), a highly abundant growth factor in skeletal tissues, stimulates matrix metalloproteinase-13 (MMP-13) expression in osteoblastic cells. MMP-13 plays a critical role in bone remodeling. Runx2, a bone transcription factor, is required for TGF-β1-mediated stimulation of MMP-13 expression in osteoblastic cells. In this study, the molecular mechanism responsible for TGF-β1-stimulation of MMP-13 expression via Runx2 in osteoblastic cells was elucidated. TGF-β1 stimulated the phosphorylation of Runx2 at serine amino acids, and ERK inhibition blocked this effect in rat (UMR106-01) and human (MG-63) osteoblastic cells...

Alcohol is a leading risk factor for osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). We explored the molecular mechanisms underlying alcohol-induced ONFH and investigated the protective effect of the novel Akt activator SC-79 against this disease. We found that ethanol inhibited expression of the osteogenic genes RUNX2 and OCN, downregulated osteogenic differentiation, impaired the recruitment of Akt to the plasma membrane, and suppressed Akt phosphorylation at Ser473, thereby inhibiting the Akt/GSK3β/β-catenin signaling pathway in bone mesenchymal stem cells...

BACKGROUND: Estrogen and progesterone are potent breast mitogens. In addition to steroid hormones, multiple signaling pathways input to estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) actions via posttranslational events. Protein kinases commonly activated in breast cancers phosphorylate steroid hormone receptors (SRs) and profoundly impact their activities. METHODS: To better understand the role of modified PRs in breast cancer, we measured total and phospho-Ser294 PRs in 209 human breast tumors represented on 2754 individual tissue spots within a tissue microarray and assayed the regulation of this site in human tumor explants cultured ex vivo...
