Abstract: Objective To explore the effect of high glucose on proliferation of bone marrow stromal stem cells through Wnt/β-catenin pathway. Methods Bone marrow stormal cells were obtained from the mandible of Wistar rats and stimulated with different concentrations of glucose (5.5 and 16.5 mmol/L). Cell proliferation was evaluated with methyl thiazolyl tetrazolium assay (1,3,5,and 7 d)and cell cycle analysis by flow cytometry (5 d). β-catenin and cyclin D1 protein levels were determined by Western blot. The mRNA expression of lymphoid enhancer binding factor-1 (LEF-1) and cyclin D1 were tested by real-time polymerase chain reaction.Results The results of methyl thiazolyl tetrazolium assay indicated that the optical density values of two different concentrations of the glucose had no statistical difference on day 1 (P=0.700). On days 3,5,and 7,the optical density values of the 16.5 mmol/L group were significantly lower than those in the 5.5 mmol/L group (P=0.006,P=0.002,and P=0.003). Cell cycle analysis indicated that high glucose concentration could reduced the progression from phase G1 to S,and the proliferation index values of the 16.5 mmol/L group were significantly lower than those of the 5.5 mmol/L group (P=0.014). The β-catenin and cyclin D1 levels were lower in the 16.5 mmol/L group when compared with the 5.5 mmol/L group. High glucose condition also reduced the mRNA expressions of LEF-1 and cyclin D1. Conclusion High glucose can inhibit the proliferation of bone marrow stormal cells by suppressing the expressions of β-catenin,LEF-1,and cyclin D1 in the Wnt/β-catenin pathway.
