Megakaryocytes promote osteoclastogenesis in aging.

Deepa Kanagasabapathy, Rachel J Blosser, Kevin A Maupin, Jung Min Hong, Marta Alvarez, Joydeep Ghosh, Safa F Mohamad, Alexandra Aguilar-Perez, Edward F Srour, Melissa A Kacena, Angela Bruzzaniti,

Megakaryocytes (MKs) support bone formation by stimulating osteoblasts (OBs) and inhibiting osteoclasts (OCs). Aging results in higher bone resorption, leading to bone loss. Whereas previous studies showed the effects of aging on MK-mediated bone formation, the effects of aging on MK-mediated OC formation is poorly understood. Here we examined the ... Read more >>

Loss of Lgals3 Protects Against Gonadectomy-Induced Cortical Bone Loss in Mice.

Kevin A Maupin, Daniel Dick, Johan Lee, Bart O Williams,

Sex hormone deprivation commonly occurs following menopause in women or after androgen-depletion during prostate cancer therapy in men, resulting in rapid bone turnover and loss of bone mass. There is a need to identify novel therapies to improve bone mass in these conditions. Previously, we identified age- and sex-dependent effects ... Read more >>

Gravity has an important role in both the development and maintenance of bone mass. This is most evident in the rapid and intense bone loss observed in both humans and animals exposed to extended periods of microgravity in spaceflight. Here, cohabitating 9-week-old male C57BL/6 mice resided in spaceflight for ~4 ... Read more >>

The effects of spaceflight and fracture healing on distant skeletal sites.

Ushashi C Dadwal, Kevin A Maupin, Ariane Zamarioli, Aamir Tucker, Jonathan S Harris, James P Fischer, Jeffery D Rytlewski, David C Scofield, Austin E Wininger, Fazal Ur Rehman Bhatti, Marta Alvarez, Paul J Childress, Nabarun Chakraborty, Aarti Gautam, Rasha Hammamieh, Melissa A Kacena,

Spaceflight results in reduced mechanical loading of the skeleton, which leads to dramatic bone loss. Low bone mass is associated with increased fracture risk, and this combination may compromise future, long-term, spaceflight missions. Here, we examined the systemic effects of spaceflight and fracture surgery/healing on several non-injured bones within the ... Read more >>

Aging negatively impacts the ability of megakaryocytes to stimulate osteoblast proliferation and bone mass.

Kevin A Maupin, Evan R Himes, Artur P Plett, Hui Lin Chua, Pratibha Singh, Joydeep Ghosh, Safa F Mohamad, Irushi Abeysekera, Alexa Fisher, Carol Sampson, Jung-Min Hong, Paul Childress, Marta Alvarez, Edward F Srour, Angela Bruzzaniti, Louis M Pelus, Christie M Orschell, Melissa A Kacena,

Osteoblast number and activity decreases with aging, contributing to the age-associated decline of bone mass, but the mechanisms underlying changes in osteoblast activity are not well understood. Here, we show that the age-associated bone loss critically depends on impairment of the ability of megakaryocytes (MKs) to support osteoblast proliferation. Co-culture ... Read more >>

Megakaryocyte and Osteoblast Interactions Modulate Bone Mass and Hematopoiesis.

Marta B Alvarez, LinLin Xu, Paul J Childress, Kevin A Maupin, Safa F Mohamad, Brahmananda R Chitteti, Evan Himes, David J Olivos, Ying-Hua Cheng, Simon J Conway, Edward F Srour, Melissa A Kacena,

Emerging evidence demonstrates that megakaryocytes (MK) play key roles in regulating skeletal homeostasis and hematopoiesis. To test if the loss of MK negatively impacts osteoblastogenesis and hematopoiesis, we generated conditional knockout mice where Mpl, the receptor for the main MK growth factor, thrombopoietin, was deleted specifically in MK (Mplf/f;PF4cre). Unexpectedly, ... Read more >>

Enhanced cortical bone expansion in Lgals3-deficient mice during aging.

Kevin A Maupin, Kevin Weaver, Alexis Bergsma, Cheryl Christie, Zhendong A Zhong, Tao Yang, Bart O Williams,

Imbalances between bone formation and bone resorption, which can occur due to aging or sex hormone deprivation, result in decreased bone mass and an increased risk of fracture. Previous studies have suggested that the β-galactoside binding lectin, galectin-3, is involved in bone remodeling. We compared bone parameters of mice having ... Read more >>

Osteoblast-specific deletion of Hrpt2/Cdc73 results in high bone mass and increased bone turnover.

Casey J Droscha, Cassandra R Diegel, Nicole J Ethen, Travis A Burgers, Mitchell J McDonald, Kevin A Maupin, Agni S Naidu, PengFei Wang, Bin T Teh, Bart O Williams,

Inactivating mutations that lead to loss of heterozygosity within the HRPT2/Cdc73 gene are directly linked to the development of primary hyperparathyroidism, parathyroid adenomas, and ossifying fibromas of the jaw (HPT-JT). The protein product of the Cdc73 gene, parafibromin, is a core member of the polymerase-associated factors (PAF) complex, which coordinates ... Read more >>

Exploring the specificities of glycan-binding proteins using glycan array data and the GlycoSearch software.

Doron Kletter, Bryan Curnutte, Kevin A Maupin, Marshall Bern, Brian B Haab,

The glycan array is a powerful tool for investigating the specificities of glycan-binding proteins. By incubating a glycan-binding protein on a glycan array, the relative binding to hundreds of different oligosaccharides can be quantified in parallel. Based on these data, much information can be obtained about the preference of a ... Read more >>

Katie Partyka, Mitchell McDonald, Kevin A Maupin, Randall Brand, Richard Kwon, Diane M Simeone, Peter Allen, Brian B Haab,

Significant efforts are underway to develop new biomarkers from pancreatic cyst fluid. Previous research has made use of cyst fluid collected from surgically removed cysts, but the clinical implementation of biomarkers would use cyst fluid collected by endoscopic ultrasound-guided, fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). The purpose of this study was to investigate ... Read more >>

Enhanced discrimination of malignant from benign pancreatic disease by measuring the CA 19-9 antigen on specific protein carriers.

Tingting Yue, Kevin A Maupin, Brian Fallon, Lin Li, Katie Partyka, Michelle A Anderson, Dean E Brenner, Karen Kaul, Herbert Zeh, A James Moser, Diane M Simeone, Ziding Feng, Randall E Brand, Brian B Haab,

The CA 19-9 assay detects a carbohydrate antigen on multiple protein carriers, some of which may be preferential carriers of the antigen in cancer. We tested the hypothesis that the measurement of the CA 19-9 antigen on individual proteins could improve performance over the standard CA 19-9 assay. We used ... Read more >>
