ABSTRACT

Osteoporosis, caused by a relative increase of bone resorption over bone formation, is characterized by decreased bone mass and bone strength, resulting in an increased incidence of bone fractures, which often leads to further disability and early mortality in the elderly due to impaired bone healing ability. The majority of therapeutics currently used in clinics for the treatment of osteoporosis are antiresorptive agents that exert their clinical effect by decreasing the rate of bone resorption. However, strategies solely aimed at antiresorption have limited therapeutic efficacy in restoring bone remodeling balance and enhancing osteoporotic fracture healing. Here, we report that miR-26a plays a critical role in modulating bone formation during osteoporosis. We found that miR-26a treatment could effectively improve the osteogenic differentiation capability of mesenchymal stem cells isolated from littermate-derived ovariectomized osteoporotic mice both in vitro and in vivo. MiR-26a exerts its effect by directly targeting Tob1, the negative regulator of BMP/Smad signaling pathway by binding to the 3'-untranslated region and thus repressing Tob1 protein expression. Our findings indicate that miR-26a may be a promising therapeutic candidate to enhance bone formation in treatment of osteoporosis and to promote bone regeneration in osteoporotic fracture healing.
