|Title:||Ascorbate-induced Osteoblast Differentiation Recruits Distinct Mmp-inhibitors: Reck And Timp-2|
|Abstract:||The bone formation executed by osteoblasts represents an interesting research field both for basic and applied investigations. The goal of this work was to evaluate the molecular mechanisms involved during osteoblast differentiation in vitro. Accordingly, we demonstrated that, during the osteoblastic differentiation, TIMP-2 and RECK presented differential expressions, where RECK expression was downregulated from the 14th day in contrast with an increase in TIMP-2. Concomitantly, our results showed a temporal regulation of two major signaling cascades during osteoblast differentiation: proliferation cascades in which RECK, PI3 K, and GSK-3β play a pivotal role and latter, differentiation cascades with participation of Ras, Rho, Rac-1, PKCα/β, and TIMP-2. Furthermore, we observed that phosphorylation level of paxillin was downregulated while FAK125 remained unchangeable, but active during extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling. Concluding, our results provide evidences that RECK and TIMP-2 are involved in the control of ECM remodeling in distinct phases of osteoblast differentiation by modulating MMP activities and a multitude of signaling proteins governs these events. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. 2008.|
