Abstract

Background

This study aimed to investigate the effect on the target or related genes of miRNA after serum containing Bushen decoction intervention on breast cancer-bearing nude mice osteoblast cells, at the differential expression of miRNA profile levels.

Methods

The primary breast cancer-bearing nude mice osteoblasts were identified by alkaline phosphatase staining and collagen type I immunofluorescent staining and mineralized nodules staining. The osteoblasts were cultured in serum containing Bushen decoction. After a given time of intervention, the cultured cells were collected, and the total RNA were isolated and purified and used for follow-up miRNA microarray experiments. Real-time quantitative PCR was used to further validate the expression level of miRNA in samples of Bushen decoction intervention on breast cancer-bearing nude mice osteoblasts.

Results

The twice-enzyme digestion method was practicable, efficient and ideal technique to obtain a large number of purified primary breast cancer-bearing nude mice osteoblasts in a short time and culture cells with typical osteoblast characteristics. Alkaline phosphatase staining and collagen type I immunofluorescent staining and mineralized nodules staining were positive. Compared with the Bushen decoction containing serum cultured 1d, 229 different expression of miRNA (52 up-regulated and 177 down-regulated more than twice) were found 6 days after Bushen decoction containing serum cultured. The results of real-time PCR were in accordance with the miRNA array results that the expression levels of mmu-miR-205 was over 4-fold up-regulated and mmu-miR-335 over 4-fold down-regulated significantly in the cultured 6d compared with the cultured 1d.

Conclusions

A set of specific miRNA were obtained after Bushen decoction containing serum intervention on breast cancer-bearing nude mice osteoblast cells for 6d. Target gene prediction software predicts the up-regulated miRNA mainly by regulating bone development, bone morphogenesis, bone resorption and endochondral bone morphogenesis through the target genes, such as Runx2, Wnt, Notch, and Axin2, et al.
