Functional modes of retinoic acid in mouse osteoblastic clone MC3T3-E1, proved as a target cell for retinoic acid

, : Functional modes of retinoic acid in mouse osteoblastic clone MC3T3-E1, proved as a target cell for retinoic acid. Febs Letters 261(1): 93-96

Mouse osteoblastic clone MC3T3-E1 was proved as a target cell for retinoic acid (RA) in bone tissues through the demonstration of RA-receptor gene expression by the northern blot analysis. The effect of RA on the cell growth of MC3T3-E1 was repressive for both subconfluent and confluent growth, whereas RA enhancement of alkaline phosphatase expression was observed at the confluent stage. This implies that RA is a regulatory factor leading osteogenesis of the cells after the confluent stage. RA exhibited simultaneously the stage-dependent effects on EGF-dependent mitogenesis: promotive at the subconfluent, but repressive at the confluent stage.
