CD105 promotes chondrogenesis of synovium-derived mesenchymal stem cells through Smad2 signaling



CD105 promotes chondrogenesis of synovium-derived mesenchymal stem cells through Smad2 signaling



Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 474(2): 338-344



Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are considered to be suitable for cell-based tissue regeneration. Expressions of different cell surface markers confer distinct differentiation potential to different sub-populations of MSCs. Understanding the effect of cell surface markers on MSC differentiation is essential to their targeted application in different tissues. Although CD105 positive MSCs possess strong chondrogenic capacity, the underlying mechanisms are not clear. In this study, we observed a considerable heterogeneity with respect to CD105 expression among MSCs isolated from synovium. The CD105(+) and CD105(-) synovium-derived MSCs (SMSCs) were sorted to compare their differentiation capacities and relative gene expressions. CD105(+) subpopulation had higher gene expressions of AGG, COL II and Sox9, and showed a stronger affinity for Alcian blue and immunofluorescent staining for aggrecan and collagenase II, as compared to those in CD105(-) cells. However, no significant difference was observed with respect to gene expressions of ALP, Runx2, LPL and PPARγ. CD105(+) SMSCs showed increased levels of Smad2 phosphorylation, while total Smad2 levels were similar between the two groups. There was no difference in activation of Smad1/5. These results were further confirmed by CD105-knockdown in SMSCs. Our findings suggest a stronger chondrogenic potential of CD105(+) SMSCs in comparison to that of CD105(-) SMSCs and that CD105 enhances chondrogenesis of SMSCs by regulating TGF-β/Smad2 signaling pathway, but not Smad1/5. Our study provides a better understanding of CD105 with respect to chondrogenic differentiation.
