Hi to everyone.
I want to know some microRNAs that enhance osteogenesis and chondrogenesis?
Does anyone have good experience in this regard?
I want to know in vitro and in vivo.

Below is a reference to an article that discusses miRs in bone cells, particularly osteoblasts, as well as miRs involved in chondrocytes, with an extension to bone diseases and osteoarthritis. It is a good base to answer your questioning.
Moore BT, Xiao P. MiRNAs in bone diseases. MicroRNA 2013;2:20-31.
Following article will help you:
Wish you success and best wishes
Thanks for your suggestion.
but I read it before. It helped me but couldn't suggest me a definitive MiRNA.
By the way, thank you.

Are C3H10T1/2 cells suitable for chondrogenesis and/or osteogenesis?
- Andy Wu
Can anyone share their experience with C3H10T1/2 cells for chondrogenic and/or osteogenic induction, please? In particular, the efficacy/efficiency of differentiation and the timing.
I am currently osteochondral differentiation of MSCs but would like to use a cell line instead of primary cells (i.e. from the bone marrow). I believe that C3H10T1/2s are embryo-derived so I am a little in doubt of their efficacy for differentiation into chondrocytes and osteblasts. For inducing differentiation, I use the standard chondrogenic and osteogenic medium (including ascorbic acid, DEX, b-glycerophosphate, etc). For my experiments, I only culture the samples for 1 or 2 weeks max. Is this too short to see the differentiation??
Mouse embryo skeletal staining: is there a "fast" working protocol for a double staining using Alizarin (bone) and alcian blue (cartilage) compounds?
- Alexander Tolkachov
I want to make a skeletal staining for E15.5 and E18.5 mouse embryos. Some publications refer to a method described by Kimmel and Trammell (Stain Technol. 1981). Does anyone have experience using this method, or can give any clues for an adequately fast (2-5 days) procedure?
What exactly is the effect of dexamethasone for differentiation of MSCs? and other supplements?
- Marie Askholm
I´m working on a project with 3-lineage differentiation of equine MSCs from adipose tissue and peripheral blood. I differentiate them towards catilage, bone and adipose tissue. In the following you can see the media and supplements I use.
My question is what exatly is the effect of dexamethasone to the cells, since the supplements is used for all 3 lineages it cannot be for the differentiation towards a specific lineage. Also what is the excat effect of asorbic acid (it generally seems to be used in a much higher density in medias towards osteogenesis than towards chondrogenesis), beta-glycerophosphate, TGFbeta, insulin and IBMX, indometahcin.
Or maybe you know a good place to find information about the exact effect of these supplements. Im very new i this field, so sorry if the question is a little stupid.

What are the enzymes secreted from osteoprogenitor cells that cleave proBMP-2 and proVEGF?
- Safaa Kader
I just have started my project. My project focuses on the BMP-2 and VEGF role in osteogenesis and vascularization. I am doing survey looking for enzymes that cleaving proBMP-2 and proVEGF. I am interesting in finding the sequences that make BMP-2 and VEGF inactive initially and active ultimately by enzymes secreted from osteoprogenitor cells. If you could help me in that I will appreciate that
Does anyone have good protocol for MSCs differentiation into tenocytes?

Thanks in advance.
Why are high glucose contents used in a chondrogenic differentiation protocol?
- Marie Askholm
In comparison to differentiation of MSCs towards adipogenis and osteogenesis, most literature shows to use media with a high content of glucose for chondrogenesis. Why is that?
Some believe it is due to promote the effect of TGFbeta but could it also be due to different demands on the cells when grown as a pellet?
Can pixel density of callus in fraturec union xrays can be used quqntify bone union ?
- John BENJAMIN Das Kulasekar
we take a XRay in a conservative treatement u see callus and decide its united
when u do plate osteisynthesis when there is no callus how to decide if there is a gap due to commuintion and whther the pixel densith in a x-ray can be used to decide there is caluus formation or bone formation or not?

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small molecules and non-coding single strand RNAs that regulate gene expression at the post-transcriptional level by binding to specific sequences within target genes. miRNAs have been recognized as important regulatory factors in organism development and disease expression.
