Abstract

The bone tissue is extremely complex and is regulated by systemic and local factors. It presents considerable metabolic activity including the removal of mineralized bone through the osteoclasts followed by the formation of bone matrix by the osteoblasts. The association of T3 and E2 might lead to a complex response to the bone tissue activity and T3 produces effects upon bone resorption as well as bone formation. As for E2, when in low level, it might lead to osteoporosis whereas in normal state it guarantees cytokine suppression such as RANK, RANKL and OPG which actively participate in bone remodeling. Therefore, various studies aim at verifying the hormone action upon bone metabolism and within them there are groups isolating mesenchymal stem cell from human adipose tissue and diferentiating into osteoblasts. The differentiation might be triggered by several factors including the expression of some specific genes that are related to various gene expression regulating mechanisms such as small non-codingRNAs (ncRNAs), micro RNAs (miRNAs) and small interfering RNAs (siRNA). Hence, the identification of small RNAs involved in the osteoblast differentiation from the quantitative transcriptome sequencing might lead to answer some questions about the complex bone metabolism. Thus, the present study allows the analysis both the differentiation of osteoblasts and the profile of transcriptome during the progression to osteoclastogenesis stimulated by thyroid hormone and estrogen. It also identifies small RNAs with potential applicability to the reversion or maintenance of such processes in a field that is eminent within bone biology. (AU)
