In this study, we investigated the protective effects of geniposide on dexamethasone (DEX)-induced osteogenic inhibition in MC3T3-E1 cells. The results showed that there was no obvious toxicity on MC3T3-E1 cells when geniposide was used at the doses ranging from 1 to 75 μM. In DEX-treated MC3T3-E1 cells, geniposide promoted the alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity and the mineralization. In addition, geniposide also significantly increased the mRNA and protein expression of osteopontin (OPN), Runt-related transcription factor 2 (Runx2), and Osterix (Osx) in DEX-treated MC3T3-E1 cells. Furthermore, geniposide activated ER...

This study gives unprecedented insight into the physiology of VBNC cells and the drastically altered presence of their metabolic and structural proteins. Introduction Changes in the physical and chemical properties of their environment, such as heat, cold and salt stress, oxygen and nutrient deprivation, desiccation and changes in osmolarity, threaten the survival of bacteria, and they have therefore evolved various strategies to evade detrimental effects (Merchant and Helmann, 2012; Alvarez-Ordóñez et al., 2015; Guan et al., 2017).
