Resveratrol improves osteogenic differentiation of senescent bone mesenchymal stem cells through inhibiting endogenous reactive oxygen species production via AMPK activation.

Conclusion: These results provide a potential mechanism involving AMPK activation/ROS inhibition signaling pathway in osteogenic differentiation of BMSCs enhanced by resveratrol. It suggests that development of therapy towards ROS is an effective way for osteoporosis treatment. PMID: 31438780 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Current osteoporosis medications reduce fractures significantly but have rare and serious adverse effects (osteonecrosis of the jaw, atypical femoral fractures) that may limit their safety for long-term use. Insights from basic bone biology and genetic disorders have led to recent advances in therapeutics for osteoporosis. New approaches now in clinical use include the antisclerostin monoclonal antibody romosozumab, as well as the parathyroid hormone-related peptide analog abaloparatide. Clinical trial data show significant antifracture benefits with recently approved romosozumab. Studies using abaloparat...

This study aimed to evaluate the effect of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in combination with a poly(vinylidene-trifluoroethylene)/barium titanate (PVDF-TrFE/BT) membrane on bone repair in osteoporotic rats. Osteoporosis was induced in female rats by bilateral removal of the ovaries (OVX) or sham surgery (SHAM), and the osteoporotic condition was characterized after 5 months by microtomographic and morphometric analyses. Calvarial defects were created in osteoporotic rats that immediately received the PVDF-TrFE/BT membrane. After 2 weeks, bone marrow-derived MSCs from healthy rats, characterized by the expression of surface...

We examined human lung tissue from COPD patients and normal control subjects, and found a substantial increase in p16-expressing alveolar cells in COPD patients. Using a transgenic mouse deficient for p16, we demonstrated that lungs of mice lacking p16 were structurally and functionally resistant to CS-induced emphysema due to activation of IGF1/Akt regenerative and protective signaling.

miR‑488 negatively regulates osteogenic differentiation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells induced by psoralen by targeting Runx2. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Aug 23;: Authors: Huang Y, Hou Q, Su H, Chen D, Luo Y, Jiang T Abstract It has been previously reported that psoralen, one of the active ingredients in Psoralea corylifolia, could induce osteogenic differentiation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs), suggesting its potential to treat osteoporosis. Additionally, runt‑related transcription factor 2 (Runx2) is a transcription factor that plays vital roles in BMSC osteogenic differentiation. H...

CONCLUSIONS: Risdronate can effectively inhibit the adipogenic differentiation of rat BMSCs, decrease fat content in the bone marrow, and suppress the generation and function of osteoclasts by down-regulating the expression of RANKL, which can be an important mechanism underlying the therapeutic effect of risedronate against osteoporosis.

Abstract The aim of the work was to study the influence of vaspin on oxidative stress-induced apoptosis of mouse mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). MSCs originated from bone marrow of C57BL/6 mouse were treated with vaspin and/or H2O2 in a dose-dependent manner. Cellular viability detected by CCK-8 and cell apoptosis studied by flow cytometry and TUNEL assay were observed in these cells. The protein expressions of PI3K, p-PI3K, Akt, p-Akt, T-ERK1/2, p-ERK1/2, p38, p-p38, JNK, and p-JNK were tested by Western blot. Vaspin had no significant effect on cellular viability, but significantly reduced H2O2-induced apoptosis....

Bmi1 overexpression in mesenchymal stem cells can inactivate p16/p19 signaling and inhibit oxidative stress, stimulate mesenchymal stem cell proliferation and differentiation into osteoblasts, subsequently enhancing osteoblastic bone formation to exert an antiosteoporosis effect. AbstractWe previously demonstrated that Bmi1 deficiency leads to osteoporosis phenotype by inhibiting the proliferation and osteogenic differentiation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), but it is unclear whether overexpression of Bmi1 in MSCs stimulates skeletal development and rescues Bmi1 deficiency ‐induced osteoporosis. To answer ...

Concentrate growth factor (CGF) is a third-generation platelet concentrate that releases a variety of bioactive substances and plays a good role in promoting tissue healing. Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell (BMSCs) transplantation has been used to treat osteoporosis. However, effect of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell combined with concentrate growth factor (CGF) on postmenopausal bone defects remains elusive.
