BACKGROUND: LPS-inhibited osteoblastic differentiation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of osteomyelitis. Thus, searching for drugs that affect LPS-mediated osteoblastic differentiation may be crucial in developing therapies for osteomyelitis. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role and mechanisms of resveratrol, a natural polyphenol present in red wine, on LPS-inhibited osteoblastic differentiation.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Cell viability was measured by MMT assay. Mitochondrial ATP levels, membrane potential, and superoxide production were measured to evaluate the effects of LPS and resveratrol on mitochondrial functions in osteoblast-like MC3T3-E1 cells. Osteoblast-related genes, including ALP, OCN, OPN, and RUNX2, were measured by ELISA analysis and RT-PCR in differentiated osteoblast cells treated with LPS and resveratrol. Cellular Sirt1 and PCG-1α levels were measured by Western blot to probe the impact of resveratrol treatment in LPS-stimulated MC3T3-E1 osteoblasts.

RESULTS: The results showed that LPS caused significant mitochondrial dysfunctions of MC3T3-E1 cells in a dose-dependent manner, which were attenuated by resveratrol. Furthermore, LPS markedly decreased the expression of ALP, OCN, OPN, and RUNX2 in MC3T3-E1 cells cultivated in osteoblast differentiation medium, suggesting that LPS inhibited the osteoblastic differentiation of MC3T3-E1 cells. However, resveratrol obviously alleviated the suppressive impact of LPS on osteoblast differentiation. In addition, resveratrol increased expression of Sirt1 and PGC-1α in MC3T3-E1 cells treated with LPS.

CONCLUSIONS: Taken together, these results show that resveratrol alleviated the suppression of LPS on osteoblast differentiation by improving, at least in part, mitochondrial function.
