Abstract Background Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are promising targets for therapeutic use in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. In the previous study, we have found that MSCs could be reverted to a primitive stem cell population after in vitro induction of osteogenic and de-osteogenic differentiation (de-osteogenic differentiated MSCs, De-Os-MSCs). De-Os-MSCs showed improved cell survival and osteogenic potential. However, the underlying mechanism and its potential effect on fracture healing has not been explored. Methods MSCs were isolated from the rat bone marrow. MicroRNAs were cloned into lentiviral vectors and transduced into MSCs to observe the effects on osteogenesis. The expression levels of marker genes were evaluated by quantitative RT-PCR. Ectopic bone formation model was used to evaluate the bone regeneration ability of mir-92b transduced MSCs in vivo. An open femur fracture model was established, and MSCs or De-Os-MSCs were administrated to the fracture sites. Histological, biomechanical and microCT analysis were used to evaluate the quality of bone. Results In the present study, we found that mir-92b was significantly increased in the secretions of De-Os-MSCs. And mir-92b could promote the osteogenic differentiation potential of MSCs by activating pERK and JNK signaling pathways. The ectopic bone formation assay showed that MSCs overexpressing mir-92b formed more bone like tissues in vivo. Most importantly, we found local administration of De-Os-MSCs could accelerate fracture healing using an open femur fracture model in rats. The quality of bone property was much better as shown by microCT and biomechanical testing. Conclusion Taken together, our study demonstrated that mir-92b promoted osteogenesis of MSCs, which was partially accounted for the enhanced osteogenic differentiation potential of De-Os-MSCs. And De-Os-MSCs had shown better regenerative capacity in accelerating fracture healing when they were locally given. The translational potential of this article De-Os-MSCs could be used to accelerate fracture healing, and reduce the occurrence of delayed unions and non-unions.

: Osteoporosis is closely associated with the dysfunction of bone metabolism, which is caused by the imbalance between new bone formation and bone resorption. Osteogenic differentiation plays a vital role in maintaining the balance of bone microenvironment. The present study investigated whether melatonin participated in the osteogenic commitment of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) and further explored its underlying mechanisms. Our data showed that melatonin exhibited the capacity of ...

Abstract Triclosan (TCS) has been used widely in personal care products for its broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity. The detection of TCS in the umbilical cord sera, amniotic fluid, and placenta, has raised concerns about the risk to foetal development. In the current study, the embryonic stem cells test (EST) were utilized primarily for the evaluation of the adverse effects of TCS on cardiogenesis and osteogenesis in vitro . TCS was predicted to be weakly embryotoxic in cardiogenesis and stro...

: Intercellular communication between mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and their target cells in the perivascular environment is modulated by exosomes derived from MSCs. However, the potential role of exosome-mediated microRNA transfer in neointimal hyperplasia remains to be investigated. To evaluate the effects of MSC-derived exosomes (MSC-Exo) on neointimal hyperplasia, their effects upon vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) growth in vitro and neointimal hyperplasia in vivo were assessed in a mode...

Abstract Myricetin is a flavonoid that found in berries, onions, and red grapes. It has been reported to have various pharmacological effects such as anti-inflammation, anti-oxidant and anti-cancer activities. However, the underlying mechanisms of myricetin on osteogenic differentiation remain unknown in human periodontal ligament stem cells (hPDLSCs). In this study, we investigated the ability of myricetin to increase osteogenic differentiation and its underlying molecular mechanisms. Myricetin...

Summary Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been considered as an attractive tool for the therapy of diseases. Accumulating evidence indicates that the healing effects of MSCs are mainly related to paracrine action rather than transdifferentiation. Exosomes excreted from MSCs have emerged as physiologically relevant and powerful components of the MSC secretome. However, whether MSC-derived exosomes can improve erectile function of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats and its mechanism remains unk...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are highly plastic cells that are able to transdifferentiate or dedifferentiate under appropriate conditions. In the present study, we reported here that after in vitro induction of osteogenic differentiation, MSCs could be reverted to a primitive stem cell population (dedifferentiated osteogenic MSCs, De-Os-MSCs) with improved cell survival, colony formation, osteogenic potential, migratory capacity and increased expression of Nanog, Oct4 and Sox2. Most importantly...

Factors synthesized by mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) contain various growth factors, cytokines, exosomes and microRNAs, which may affect the differentiation abilities of MSCs. In the present study, we investigated the effects of secretion factors of human umbilical cord derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUCMSCs) on osteogenesis of human bone marrow derived MSCs (hBMSCs). The results showed that 20 μg/ml hUCMSCs secretion factors could initiate osteogenic differentiation of hBMSCs without osteogeni...

MicroRNAs are small noncoding RNAs involved in numerous biological processes. Emerging pieces of evidence suggest that microRNAs play important roles in osteogenesis and skeletal homeostasis. Recent studies indicated the significant regulation function of mir-21 in osteogenesis in vitro, but little information is known about its veritable functions in vivo. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the effect of mir-21 intervention on osteogenic differentiation of rats bone marrow derived me...

Fractures are the most common large-organ, traumatic injuries to humans. The repair of bone fractures is a postnatal regenerative process that recapitulates many of the ontological events of embryonic skeletal development. Although fracture repair usually restores the damaged skeletal organ to its pre-injury cellular composition, structure and biomechanical function, about 10% of fractures will not heal normally. This article reviews the developmental progression of fracture healing at the tissu...

Epigenetic regulation utilizes different mechanisms to convey heritable traits to progeny cells that are independent of DNA sequence, including DNA silencing, post-translational modifications of histone proteins, and the post-transcriptional modulation of RNA transcript levels by non-coding RNAs. Although long non-coding RNAs have recently emerged as important regulators of gene imprinting, their functions during osteogenesis are as yet unexplored. In contrast, microRNAs (miRNAs) are well charac...

Cellular therapy exerts profound therapeutic potential for curing a broad spectrum of diseases. Adult stem cells reside within a specified dynamic niche in vivo, which is essential for continuous tissue homeostatic maintenance through balancing self-renewal with lineage selection. Meanwhile, adult stem cells may be multipotent or unipotent, and are present in both quiescent and actively dividing states in vivo of the mammalians, which may switch to each other state in response to biophysical cue...

Abstract Senile osteoporosis (SOP) is widely regarded as one of the typical aging-related diseases due to a decrease in bone mass and the destruction in microarchitecture. The inhibition of mitophagy can promote bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) senescence, and increasing studies have shown that interventions targeting BMSCs senescence can ameliorate osteoporosis, exhibiting their potential for use as therapeutic strategies. Sirtuin-3 (Sirt3) is an essential mitochondria metabolic regul...
