Xingyu Chai, Wencan Zhang, Bingying Chang, Xianli Feng, Jiang Song, Le Li, Chenxiao Yu, Junyong Zhao & Haipeng Si
Osteoporosis-related bone fracture and falls have a severe impact on patients’ daily lives. Osteoblasts are bone-building cells that play a vital role in bone formation and remodeling. Imbalanced osteoblast differentiation could lead to osteoporosis. GPR39 is an orphan G protein-coupled receptor that mediates metabolic pathways. In this study, we show that GPR39 is expressed in MC3T3-E1 cells. Osteoblast differentiation culture media induces GPR39, suggesting that GPR39 is a differentiation-responsive factor. Activation of GPR39 using its...
