Acute lung injury (ALI) is among the most common causes of mortality in intensive care units. Previous studies have suggested that bone marrowderived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) may attenuate pulmonary edema. In addition, alveolar epithelial cells type  (AT) are involved in reducing the alveolar edema in response to ALI. However, the mechanism involved in improving the efficiency of differentiation of MSCs into AT remains to be elucidated. In the present study, the effect of salvianolic acid B (Sal B) on the differentiation of BMSCs into AT and the activities of the Wnt signaling pathways were investigated. The BMSCs were supplemented with conditioned medium (CM). The groups were as follows: i) CM group: BMSCs were supplemented with CM; ii) lithium chloride (LiCl) group: BMSCs were supplemented with CM and 5 mM LiCl; iii) Sal B group: BMSCs were supplemented with CM and 10 mM Sal B. The samples were collected and assessed on days 7 and 14. It was revealed that aquaporin (AQP)5 and T1α were expressed in BMSCs, and induction with LiCl or Sal B increased the expression of AQP5 and T1α. Furthermore, the Wnt1 and Wnt3a signaling pathways were activated during the differentiation of BMSCs into AT. In conclusion, it was suggested that the promotive effects of Sal B on the differentiation of BMSCs into AT occurred through the activation of Wnt signaling pathways.
