  • OBJECTIVE Excessive glucocorticoid treatment increases the incidence of osteopenia and osteonecrosis. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) reportedly target messenger RNA expression and regulate osteoblastogenesis and skeletal development. We undertook this study to investigate whether miR-29a regulates glucocorticoid-mediated bone loss. METHODS Rats were given methylprednisolone, lentivirus-mediated miR-29a precursor, or lentivirus-mediated miR-29a inhibitor. Dual x-ray absorptiometry, micro-computed… CONTINUE READING
