Data deposition: The microarray data reported in this paper have been deposited in the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/geo (accession no. Fibroblasts are specialized cells that develop from embryonic mesenchyme. However, their origin and pathways of differentiation remain poorly defined. 5 B and C) on day 28, when the transgene was no longer expressed (Figs. The transduction of OL significantly induced osteocalcin, osteopontin, BSP, and ALP mRNA. The relative mRNA levels were calculated as in Fig. This work was supported by grants from the Japan Science and Technology Agency (PRESTO and A-Step); the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology; and the Suzuken Memorial Foundation. 1). High Mineralization Capacity of IDG-SW3 Cells in 3D Collagen Hydrogel for Bone Healing in Estrogen-Deficient Mice. Similar results were also obtained by the two-factor combinations containing Oct4 (e.g., Runx2 plus Oct4, Osterix plus Oct4). In other studies, forced expression of Runx2 induced osteocalcin in rodent fibroblasts (35, 36), but not in human fibroblasts (Fig. Both regeneration and repair are orchestrated by a highly coordinated interplay of different growth factors and cytokines. The clinical application of autologous MSC transplantation to bone regeneration faces some obstacles, however, especially in elderly patients, including limited numbers of stem cells, age-related decrease in potential for differentiation into osteoblasts, and invasion during the cell isolation procedure (41, 42). Maintainance and repair of bone, however, also depends on bone degredation, that is, the demolising of old bone matrix. 2020 Aug 31;8:864. doi: 10.3389/fbioe.2020.00864. hematoma formation. 2A, Right). 5,6 The colonies adhered to culture dishes and consisted … These conversions include direct conversion of murine fibroblasts into cardiomyocytes (16, 17), neurons (18⇓–20), chondrocytes (21), and hepatocytes (22, 23), as well as of human fibroblasts into cardiomyocytes (24, 25), neurons (19, 26), and hematopoietic cells (27). 1A.

Other cells were infected with standard RXOL retrovirus vectors [in which retroviral long terminal repeat (LTR) constitutively drove the transgenes] or left uninfected (−). 2018 Aug 21;9(3):50. doi: 10.3390/jfb9030050. The resultant osteoblasts facilitated bone repair in vivo after transplantation into immunodeficient mice at the bone defect lesions. Direkze NC, Forbes SJ, Brittan M, et al. Compact bone makes up most of the bone of the diaphysis while spongy bone makes up most of the epiphysis. This site needs JavaScript to work properly. It has been demonstrated that forced expression of combinations of some transcription factors, such as Octamer-binding transcription factor 3/4 (Oct4), Sox2, Klf-4, and c-Myc (reprogramming factors), induces immortality and pluripotency in mammalian somatic cells (12, 13). Yano T(1), Miura T, Ikeda Y, Matsuda E, Saito K, Miki T, Kobayashi H, Nishino Y, Ohtani S, Shimamoto K. Bone repair was estimated by macroscopic, radiographic, biomechanical, and histological examinations at 21 d after transplantation. The repair tissue between the broken bone ends, the fibrocartilaginous callus, is composed of both hyaline and fibrocartilage. Connective tissue can be either loose or dense, depending on how the fibers within the tissue are arranged. Online ISSN 1091-6490. FGF5 is associated with the hair follicle cycle. Triangles indicate bone defect lesions; arrowheads, regenerated bone tissue. The relative mRNA levels were calculated as in Fig. Chondrocytes die. Osteoblasts play a central role in bone formation and remodeling by producing type I collagen, osteopontin, osteocalcin, and bone sialoprotein (BSP), and calcifying these bone matrixes (1). Here, we show that connective tissue growth factor (CTGF; also known as CCN2) is sufficient to induce human bone marrow mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) to differentiate into fibroblasts. These results are consistent with previous reports on epigenetic markers at the osteocalcin gene loci in rat osteoblasts (30) and mouse osteoblasts (31). S7A). doi: 10.1186/1755-1536-5-S1-S6. S8). Runx2, a master regulator of osteoblast development (4, 5, 32), is a member of the Runx family of transcription factors that is specifically expressed in cells of osteoblastic lineage at various differentiation stages, from immature mesenchymal osteochondroprogenitors to mature osteoblasts. In the heat map, genes with increased expression are colored red, and genes with decreased expression are in blue (see the color range below the heat map). Myofibroblasts differentiate, invade and repair injured tissues by secreting and organizing the extracellular matrix and by developing contractile forces. Fibroblasts are large flat spindle-shaped cells with processes that extend out from the ends of the cell body. (B) RNA obtained from the indicated cells were analyzed by the GeneChip human Gene 1.0 ST (Affymetrix), consisting of 29,096 probes. (C) Human fibroblasts and dOBs (at 14 d after RXOL infection) were transplanted into NOC/SCID mice at the bone defect lesion, and a control group was implanted with Matrigel alone.  |  2003;21(5):514–520. (Upper) In the heat map, red color indicates high correlation between the two cells, whereas black color shows low correlation (see color range). The sequences of real-time RT-PCR primers are provided in Table S1. Functions include support, protection, aid in movement, being a reservoir for minerals such as calcium and phosphate, for hematopoiesis, and fat storage. 21, 34 In our study, both B7.1 and Col2a1 were detected simultaneously in the … Human dermal fibroblasts infected with RXOL and OL also expressed mRNA for osteocalcin, ALP, and BSP genes at significant levels (Fig. (A) Human fibroblasts and dOBs (14 d after RXOL infection) were transplanted to an artificial segmental bone defect in femoral diaphysis in NOC/SCID mice.
