Extracellular vesicles from adipose tissue-derived stem cells alleviate osteoporosis through osteoprotegerin and miR-21-5p

Osteoporosis is one of the most common skeletal disorders caused by the imbalance between bone formation and resorption, resulting in quantitative loss of bone tissue. Since stem cell-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) are growing attention as novel cell-free therapeutics that have advantages over parental stem cells, the therapeutic effects of EVs from adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ASC-EVs) on osteoporosis pathogenesis were investigated. ASC-EVs were isolated by a multi-filtration system based on the tangential flow filtration (TFF) system and characterized using transmission electron microscopy, dynamic light scattering, zeta potential, flow cytometry, cytokine arrays, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. EVs are rich in growth factors and cytokines related to bone metabolism and mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) migration. In particular, osteoprotegerin (OPG), a natural inhibitor of receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB ligand (RANKL), was highly enriched in ASC-EVs. We found that the intravenous administration of ASC-EVs attenuated bone loss in osteoporosis mice. Also, ASC-EVs significantly inhibited osteoclast differentiation of macrophages and promoted the migration of bone marrow-derived MSCs (BM-MSCs). However, OPG-depleted ASC-EVs did not show anti-osteoclastogenesis effects, demonstrating that OPG is critical for the therapeutic effects of ASC-EVs. Additionally, small RNA sequencing data were analysed to identify miRNA candidates related to anti-osteoporosis effects. miR-21-5p in ASC-EVs inhibited osteoclast differentiation through Acvr2a down-regulation. Also, let-7b-5p in ASC-EVs significantly reduced the expression of genes related to osteoclastogenesis. Finally, ASC-EVs reached the bone tissue after they were injected intravenously, and they remained longer. OPG, miR-21-5p, and let-7b-5p in ASC-EVs inhibit osteoclast differentiation and reduce gene expression related to bone resorption, suggesting that ASC-EVs are highly promising as cell-free therapeutic agents for osteoporosis treatment.

最大6年をかけて腎臓移植を待った患者は、移植を受けたとしても、最大20パーセントの患者が拒絶反応を経験する。移植片拒絶反応は、レシピエントの免疫細胞が新たに受け取った腎臓を外来臓器として認識し、ドナーの抗原を受け入れることを拒否した場合に発生する。腎臓拒絶反応を検査するための現在の方法には、侵襲的な生検手順が含まれ、患者は数日間入院させられる。Exosome Diagnostics社とブリガムアンドウィメンズ病院による研究では、尿サンプルからの エクソソーム…
