Description

Kartogenin is an inducer of differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells into chondrocytes.

In Vitro

Kartogenin enhances cell proliferation in both cell types in a concentration-dependent manner and induces chondrogenic differentiation of stem cells, as demonstrated by high expression levels of chondrogenic markers aggrecan, collagen II and Sox-9. Besides, kartogenin induces the formation of cartilage-like tissues in cell cultures, as observed through the staining of abundant proteoglycans, collagen II and osteocalcin[1]. Kartogenin stimulates type-I collagen synthesis of fibroblasts at the mRNA and protein levels in a time-dependent manner without obvious influence on fibroblasts’ apoptosis and viability. Smad4/smad5 of the TGF-β signaling pathway is activated by kartogenin while MAPK signaling pathway remains unchanged[2]. Kartogenin treatment enhances chondrocyte pericellular matrix assembly and retention in the presence of IL-1β. Kartogenin partially blocks the IL-1β-induced increased expression of ADAMTS-5. Additionally, kartogenin-treated articular chondrocytes exhibits a decrease in CD44 proteolytic fragmentation[3].

In Vivo

hen injected into intact rat patellar tendons, kartogenin induces cartilage-like tissue formation in the injected area. When injected into experimentally injured rat Achilles TBJs, wound healing in the TBJs is enhanced, as evidenced by the formation of extensive cartilage-like tissues[1]. Kartogenin stimulates collagen synthesis in the mouse dermis. Dermis in the kartogenin (100 nM)-treated group exhibits increased dermal thickness and intense blue staining, which represents more collagen composition in the dermis[2].

Cell Assay
[1]

Rabbit BMSCs or PTSCs are treated with various concentrations (1 nM to 5 μM) of kartogenin. The medium is changed every 3 days and after 2 weeks, cell proliferation is measured by population doubling time[1].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Animal Administration
[1]

Rats: Then rats are divided into two groups based on the injections received: six rats are given 10 µL saline injections in each wound (wound-only group) and six rats receive 10 µL of 100 µM kartogenin solution each in the wounded areas (wound+kartogenin group). The injections are given immediately after wounding and repeated on days 2, 4, 7 and 12[1].
