High glucose inhibits osteogenic differentiation and proliferation of MC3T3 ‑E1 cells by regulating P2X7.

High glucose inhibits osteogenic differentiation and proliferation of MC3T3‑E1 cells by regulating P2X7. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Oct 31;: Authors: Yang J, Ma C, Zhang M Abstract Diabetes mellitus adversely affects human bones and increases the risk of developing osteoporosis. In the present study, treatment with 30 mmol/l glucose was used to establish a high glucose (HG) cell model in vitro. Plasmids were used to overexpress the P2X purinoceptor 7 (P2X7) gene. Brilliant blue G and (4‑benzoyl‑benzoyl)‑ATP were used as a P2X7 antagonist and agonist, respectively. Proliferation of osteogenic MC3T3‑E1 cells and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity were determined using MTT and colorimetric assays, respectively. Alizarin Red S was used to assess calcification of MC3T3‑E1 cells. Western blotting and reverse transcription‑quantitative PCR were performed to determine protein and mRNA expression levels. The results demonstrated that HG inhibited MC3T3‑E1 cell proliferation and P2X7 expression, reduced calcification, and downregulated the expression levels of ALP and osteocalcin (Ocn) in MC3T3‑E1 cells. Overexpression of P2X7 in HG conditions increased calcification and proliferation, and upregulated the levels of ALP and Ocn in MC3T3‑E1 cells. Inhibition of P2X7 downregulated the expressions of ALP and Ocn in MC3T3‑E1 cells under HG conditions. Therefore, the present results indicated that HG caused damage to osteogenic MC3T3‑E1 cells. T...

In this study, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were used as a disease model to determine the effects of high glucose levels on MSC-osteoblast development. The results indicated that under high glucose conditions, MSCs had reduced cell viability and increased number of β-galactosidase-positive cells. Furthermore, in vitro osteogenesis was shown to be reduced in MSCs cultured in osteogenic differentiation medium at 10, 25, and 40 mM glucose as demonstrated by Alizarin red S staining and alkaline phosphatase activity assay. Moreover, a proteomic study was performed in MSCs cultured with 25 and 40 mM glucose. The ...

AbstractAccumulating evidence has shown that patients with lifestyle diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are at increased risk of osteoporotic fracture. Fractures deteriorate quality of life, activities of daily living, and mortality as well as a lifestyle disease. Therefore, preventing fracture is an important issue for those patients. Although the mechanism of the lifestyle diseases-induced bone fragility is still unclear, not only bone mineral density (BMD) reduction but also bone quality deterioration are involved in it. Because fracture predictiv...

Authors: Bargiota A, Oeconomou A, Zachos I, Samarinas M, L Pisters L, Tzortzis V Abstract Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is the most effective systemic treatment for prostate cancer and can be succeeded either surgically or pharmaceutically. Both approaches lead to hypogonadism with a large variety of adverse events, including obesity, metabolic syndrome, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, gynecomastia and sexual dysfunction. In addition, undesirable effects on muscle and bone health may have a significant impact not only on the quality of life but also on life expectancy. Curr...

Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) is clinically defined by persistent necrotic bone exposure for more than 8 weeks, history of antiresorptive or antiangiogenic agents, and no history of radiotherapy. A 67-year-old female, in treatment for hypercholesterolemia, insomnia, diabetes mellitus type 2, and hypertension, without adequate blood pressure and glycemic control. Reported treatment for osteoporosis with bisphosphonate (alendronate) for about 4 years, presents with bone exposure, for 6 months, in the anterior region of the maxilla, without symptoms.

In Western countries, life expectancy and thus the significance of (chronic) non-communicable diseases (NCD) have increased [1]. The most common NCD comprise cardiovascular, pulmonary and musculoskeletal diseases, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and cancer [2]. In elderly women, osteoporosis associated-fractures add to the main causes of disability and mortality [3]. As NCD mostly develop silently and chronic-progressively early detection and intervention are warranted. (Online) risk calculators are a common method for screening.

AbstractGut microbiota composition is unique in every individual, it impacts on organ functions that produce hormones. Gut microbiota composition balance is directly related to our general health status. This continual interaction between gut microbiota and endocrine organs sometimes can be considered as the etiology of diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), obesity, osteoporosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and thyroid diseases. Microbiota is introduced for a total collection of microbial organisms in our bodies and microbiome referred for their genome and their collective functions. Near 100 trillion mic...

ConclusionsThis meta-analysis suggests that patients with diabetic neuropathy have a significantly increased chance of developing osteoporosis, even fragility fracture. The clinicians should pay more attention to the patients with diabetic neuropathy. Further studies were still needed to explore the confounding factors among studies and to elucidate the underlying biological mechanisms.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewType 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has been shown to negatively impact bone quality and increase fracture risk. While the pathophysiology of bone fragility in T2DM is not clear and likely multifactorial, medications used to treat T2DM are increasingly scrutinized for their potential role in aberrant bone metabolism. Sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are gaining popularity in patients with T2DM. In addition to lowering blood glucose, there is evidence that these drugs offer cardiac and renal benefit to individuals with T2DM, leading to FDA-approved indications for use in at-risk indivi...

This study was the first to demonstrate a causal relationship between glial senescence and neurodegeneration. In this study, accumulations of senescent astrocytes and microglia were found in tau-associated neurodegenerative disease model mice. Elimination of these senescent cells via a genetic approach can reduce tau deposition and prevent the degeneration of cortical and hippocampal neurons. Most recently, it was shown that clearance of senescent oligodendrocyte progenitor cells in AD model mice with senolytic agents could lessen the Aβ plaque load, reduce neuroinflammation, and ameliorate cognitive deficits. ...
