Osteoblast programmed cell death (apoptosis): modulation by growth factors and cytokines.
MC3T3-E1 cells are a newborn mouse calvarias cell line, which is commonly used in the study of osteoblasts. ERa and ER[sz] have also been identified in this cell line, so MC3T3-E1 can be used to study the role of estrogen in the regulation of osteoblast function.
Osteoblast: osteoclast co-cultures on silk fibroin, chitosan and PLLA films.
In agreement with the physiological role of RUNX2 in osteoblast function [38], we did not observe an increase of RUNX2-positive cells in Micro+ with respect to Micro- lesions.
In order to fully understand the lncRNA biology including its role in osteogenesis, it is necessary to characterize the expression pattern of lncRNA during osteoblast differentiation.
Osteoblast lineage cells are thought to promote hematopoiesis.
Our results showed that [gamma]-tocotrienol (2-8 [micro]mol/L) could promote osteoblast proliferation did not affect the cell cycle distribution, and no cytotoxicity was observed in MC3T3-E1 cells.
The key role of miRNAs in the regulation of bone homeostasis and metabolism is well established in a lot of experimental observations, showing how these noncoding RNAs may affect osteoblast or osteoclast differentiation, function, apoptosis, and proliferation.
Osteoblast Proliferation, Adhesion, and Spreading Pattern on Ti Surface with Different Modification
Although TNF[alpha] and IFN[gamma] individually affect osteoblast activity and viability only marginally [19, 29], costimulation with both induces production of nitric oxide (NO), which inhibits osteoblast differentiation and promotes apoptosis [29-35].
Three-dimensional culture environments enhance osteoblast differentiation.
PTH would increase bone mass by increasing the recruitment and activation of BMU (basic multicellular units), which operates in conjunction with the osteoblast precursors to promote their differentiation, inhibiting apoptosis of osteoblasts and osteocytes (Jilka, 2007) and the production of the bone formation inhibitor sclerostin (Keller & Kneissel, 2005).
The "CKIP-1" gene in osteoblast (bone forming cell) could specifically interact with "Smurf1" genes in the cells to inhibit cell activity, thereby slowing down or hindering bone formation.
Zinc is valuable in ameliorating the detrimental effects of salt on bones by enhancing osteoblast activity and inhibiting bone resorbing cells.
BPS-804 works by inhibiting sclerostin, which itself inhibits the activity of bone-forming cells, known as osteoblasts. The company believes bone fragility and fractures in OI patients will be reduced as this action will induce or increase osteoblast function and maturation, increasing bone formation and reducing bone resorption.
