miR29b enhances the proliferation and migration of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells in rats with castrationinduced osteoporosis through the PI3K/AKT and TGFβ/Smad signaling pathways
The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of microRNA (miR)-29b in the proliferation and migration of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) in rats with castrationinduced osteoporosis and the relevant mechanisms. The gene expression profiling microarray technique
was utilized to sequence the BMSCs with overexpressed miR29b. The intersection of the potential targets and the genes downregulated in the sequencing were utilized for GO enrichment analysis. Gene set enrichment analysis (GSEA) was employed to analyze the effect of miR29b on signaling
pathways. Additionally, the effects of miR29b overexpression on the phosphatidylinositol 3kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (AKT) and transforming growth factorβ (TGFβ)/Drosophila mothers against decapentaplegic protein (Smad) signaling pathways were detected via RTqPCR assay and
western blotting. The expression level of miR29b was found to be significantly reduced in bone marrow tissues of postmenopausal osteoporosis patients and BMSCs of rats with castrationinduced osteoporosis established via ovariectomy. Based on transcriptome sequencing and bioinformatics software
prediction, 76 potential targets of miR29b were obtained, which were distinctly enriched in such biological processes as cell proliferation, cell cycle, cell migration and cell adhesion. The results of CCK8 and EdU assays showed that overexpression of miR29b overtly promoted the proliferation
of BMSCs in rats with castrationinduced osteoporosis. Moreover, the Transwell assay results revealed that the overexpression of miR29b significantly facilitated the migration of BMSCs in rats with castrationinduced osteoporosis. According to RTqPCR assay and western blotting, miR29b activated
the PI3K/AKT and TGFβ/Smad signaling pathways. miR29b exhibited a clearly lower expression level in the bone marrow tissues of the postmenopausal osteoporosis patients and BMSCs of rats with castrationinduced osteoporosis established via ovariectomy. Overexpression of miR29b was able
to enhance the proliferation and migration ability of BMSCs in rats with castrationinduced osteoporosis, and such an enhancement may be correlated with the activation of the PI3K/AKT and TGFβ/Smad signaling pathways.
