Our previous study showed that (+)-cholesten-3-one (CN) has the potential to induce the osteoblastic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). However, the roles of CN in targeting miRNA-mRNA-lncRNA interactions to regulate osteoblast differentiation remain poorly understood. A total of 77 miRNAs (36 upregulated and 41 downregulated) and 295 lncRNAs (281 upregulated and 14 downregulated) were significantly differentially expressed during CN-induced MSC osteogenic differentiation. Bioinformatic analysis identified that several pathways may play vital roles in MSC osteogenic differentiation, such as the vitamin D receptor signalling, TNF signalling, PI3K-Akt signalling, calcium signalling, and mineral absorption pathways. Further bioinformatic analysis revealed 16 core genes, including 6 mRNAs (Vdr, Mgp, Fabp3, Fst, Cd38, and Col1a1), 5 miRNAs (miR-483, miR-298, miR-361, miR-92b and miR-155) and 5 lncRNAs (NR_046246.1, NR_046239.1, XR_086062.1, XR_145872.1 and XR_146737.1), that may play important roles in regulating the CN-induced osteogenic differentiation of MSCs. Verified by the luciferase reporter, AR-S, qRT-PCR and western blot assays, we identified one miRNA (miR-298) that may enhance the osteogenic differentiation potential of MSCs via the vitamin D receptor signalling pathway. This study revealed the global expression profile of miRNAs and lncRNAs involved in the Chinese medicine active ingredient CN-induced osteoblast differentiation of MSCs for the first time and provided a foundation for future investigations of miRNA-mRNA-lncRNA interaction networks to completely illuminate the regulatory role of CN in MSC osteoblast differentiation.

: Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) -α plays a crucial role in rheumatoid arthritis (RA)-related bone loss disease. The main mechanism of action of RA induced bone loss is the significant inhibitory effect of TNF-α on osteoblast differentiation. TNF-α inhibits osteoblast differentiation mainly by activating nuclear factor (NF) -κB signaling pathway. Owing to the crucial role of TNF-α and NF-κB in the inhibition of osteoblast differentiation, they are considered as targets for the development of therap...

HOTAIR is a lncRNA that plays critical role in gene regulation and chromatin dynamics through epigenetic mechanisms. In this work we studied the physiological role of HOTAIR during the process of mineralization using osteoblastic osteosarcoma cells focusing in ALPL (Tissue Non-Specific Alkaline Phosphatase), a pivotal gene that controls bone formation. HOTAIR knockdown resulted in upregulation of ALPL, increase of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, and enhanced mineralization in osteoblastic S...

Coupling is the process that links bone resorption to bone formation in a temporally and spatially coordinated manner within the remodeling cycle. Several lines of evidence point to the critical roles of osteoclast-derived coupling factors in the regulation of osteoblast performance. Here, we used a fractionated secretomic approach and identified the axon-guidance molecule SLIT3 as a clastokine that stimulated osteoblast migration and proliferation by activating β-catenin. SLIT3 also inhibited b...

Resveratrol (RSV) has been reported to stimulate osteoblast differentiation in which Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway played a crucial role. However, whether and how RSV activated Wnt/β-catenin pathway in osteogenic differentiation still remained elusive. In vivo polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) particle-induced osteolysis (PIO) mouse model and in vitro PMMA particle-stimulated mouse mesenchymal stem cells (mMSCs) experiments were established. Relative expression levels of lncRNA KCNQ1OT1, β-catenin...

Abstract Restitution of the natural organization and orientation of cells is imperative for the construction of functional tissue scaffolds. While numerous studies have exploited mechanical methods to engineer tissues with the desired cellular architecture, fundamental knowledge is still lacking in understanding the manner in which morphological features can be modulated through coupled mechanical cues. To address this knowledge gap, the adhesion and alignment response of murine osteoblast cells...

Our previous reports indicated that (+)-cholesten-3-one induces osteogenic differentiation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) by activating vitamin D receptor (VDR). However, whether and how miRNAs modulate osteogenic differentiation induced by (+)-cholesten-3-one have not been explored. In this study, miRNA array profiling and further validation by quantitative real-time PCR revealed that miR-351 was downregulated during (+)-cholesten-3-one-induced osteogenic differentiation of MSCs. ...

Abstract Two percent or less of the genome is used to transcribe mRNAs encoding proteins. Nearly all the remainder is utilized in transcribing non coding RNAs, the bulk of which are RNAs at least 200 base in length, long non coding RNAs (lncRNA). Their number is estimated to be about 28,000, but only a small fraction of lncRNAs are well characterized. That said lncRNAs have been found to regulate a very diverse array of biochemical and genomic functions. One of the transcription factors found to...

Pulsed-electromagnetic-field (PEMF) treatment was found to enhance cellular differentiation of the mouse preosteoblast, MC3T3-E1, to a more osteoblastic phenotype. Differentiation genes such as Alp, BSPI, cFos, Ibsp, Osteocalcin, Pthr1 and Runx2 showed increased expression in response to PEMF stimulation. Detailed molecular mechanisms linking PEMF to the activation of these genes are limited. Two adenosine receptors known to be modulated in response to PEMF, Adora2A and Adora3, were functionally...
