Osteoarthritis (OA) is characterized by qualitative and quantitative changes in the architecture and composition of all the joint structures. Glucosamine (GlcN) has been used to treat OA in humans, because GlcN is present in the cartilage tissues as a component of glycosaminoglycans, and exhibits the symptom-modifying effect on OA by normalizing cartilage metabolism. On the other hand, the pathological change of subchondral bone is associated with the initiation and progression of cartilage… Expand
Biological activities of glucosamine and its related substances.
TLDR
The results indicated that GlcN increases the mineralization of mature osteoblasts and the expression of middle and late stage markers (osteopontin and osteocalcin, respectively) during osteoblastic differentiation, and reduces theexpression of receptor activator of NF-κB ligand (RANKL), a differentiation and activation factor for osteoclasts.

Evaluation of the effect of glucosamine administration on biomarkers of cartilage and bone metabolism in bicycle racers.
TLDR
Observations indicate that glucosamine may exert a chondroprotective action by preventing type II collagen degradation in athletes of various sports, including soccer players and bicycle racers. Expand
Multifaceted Protective Role of Glucosamine against Osteoarthritis: Review of Its Molecular Mechanisms
TLDR
In conclusion, glucosamine prevents OA and maintains joint health by reducing inflammation, improving the redox status, and inducing autophagy in joints. Expand
Chondroitin and Glucosamine in the Management of Osteoarthritis: An Update
TLDR
A review of Glucosamine and chondroitin and the importance of the quality of tested compounds for achieving high quality clinical trials in OA management is emphasized. Expand
Glucosamines Attenuate Bone Loss Due to Menopause by Regulating Osteoclast Function in Ovariectomized Mice.
TLDR
The results suggest that the intake of GlcN suppresses bone loss by inhibiting osteoclast differentiation and activity in a nonestrogenic manner. Expand
Effect of organic silicon, methylsulfonylmethane, and glucosamine sulfate in mandibular bone defects in rats
TLDR
Although the composition had positive result in the histocompatibility test, its direct application in mandibular bone defects caused intense resorption. Expand
Effectiveness of Selenium on Chondrocyte Glycoprotein Glycosylation Which Play Important Roles in the Pathogenesis of an Endemic Osteoarthritis, Kashin-Beck Disease.
TLDR
Selenium may have the function of influence the expression levels of carbohydrate chains Galα1,3-Gal, high mannose, and GlcNAc in Kashin-Beck disease patients after total knee replacement surgery. Expand
Beneficial applications of glucosamine
TLDR
In this chapter, the latest beneficial applications of glucosamine in human health are briefly reviewed. Expand
Roles of glycoprotein glycosylation in the pathogenesis of an endemic osteoarthritis, Kashin–Beck disease, and effectiveness evaluation of sodium hyaluronate treatment
TLDR
HHL in saliva and serum may be a valuable diagnostic biomarker of KBD, and it may be used as follow-up for the hyaluronate treatment. Expand

Glucosamine sulfate promotes osteoblastic differentiation of MG-63 cells via anti-inflammatory effect.
TLDR
It is suggested that SGlc can promote cell differentiation in cultured MG-63 osteoblast cells via anti-inflammatory effect and can increase ALP activity, collagen synthesis, osteocalcin secretion, and mineralization in osteoblastic cells in vitro. Expand
Effect of oral glucosamine on cartilage and meniscus in normal and chymopapain-injected knees of young rabbits.
TLDR
Results suggest that oral GlcN treatment might be useful in a situation whereGlcN is limiting, such as where there is a rapid replacement of cartilage PG, and after 8 weeks, there was no effect of Glcn on the GAG content of normal cartilage. Expand
Evaluation of the suppressive actions of glucosamine on the interleukin-1β-mediated activation of synoviocytes
TLDR
It is suggested that glucosamine can suppress the IL-1β-mediated activation of synoviocytes (such as IL-8-, nitric oxide- and PGE2-production, and phosphorylation of p38 MAPK), thereby possibly exhibiting antiinflammatory actions in arthritis. Expand
Diversity of the osteoblastic phenotype.
Studies of bone cells in culture have raised two salient questions: are the findings representative of the in vivo situation and can the conflicting data from different cell models be reconciled?Expand
O-GlcNAc modification modulates the expression of osteocalcin via OSE2 and Runx2.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that O-GlcNAc modification regulates the expression of osteocalcin, an osteoblast-specific marker, via Runx2 transcriptional activity in osteoblastic differentiation by conducting activity assays of the promoter and transcription factor. Expand
Developmental appearance of Gla proteins (osteocalcin) and alkaline phosphatase in tooth germs and bones of the rat.
TLDR
It is concluded that in these bone- and dentin-forming cells, alkaline phosphatase activity is expressed before the appearance of Gla proteins, but that both appear before the onset of mineralization. Expand
Glucosamine, a naturally occurring amino monosaccharide modulates LL-37-induced endothelial cell activation.
TLDR
It is suggested that glucosamine modulates endothelial cell activation possibly via O-GlcNAc modification, and may exhibit an anti-inflammatory action on atherosclerosis. Expand
Rapidly Forming Apatitic Mineral in an Osteoblastic Cell Line (UMR 10601 BSP) (*)
TLDR
Results indicate that UMR 106-01 BSP cells form a bio-apatitic mineralized matrix upon addition of supplemental phosphate, which involves alkaline phosphatase activity, on-going RNA and protein synthesis, as well as Golgi-mediated processing and secretion. Expand
Glucosamine HCl reduces equine articular cartilage degradation in explant culture.
TLDR
Data indicate that glucosamine can prevent experimentally induced cartilage degradation in vitro, and the compound was added in three concentrations to test the potential protective effects of glucosamines. Expand
Bone matrix mRNA expression in differentiating fetal bovine osteoblasts
TLDR
The data suggest that the development of the mature osteoblastic phenotype, complete with the ability to produce a thick mineralized matrix, requires the differential regulation of a series of genes and their gene products over the culture period. Expand
