The Involvement of TRP Channels in Bone Homeostasis.


:Calcium and bone homeostasis are intimately related. On the one hand, bone relies on a sufficient supply of calcium to maintain its structural and mechanical properties and thus largely depends on calcium absorption in the intestine and calcium reabsorption in the kidney. On the other hand, bone serves as a calcium reserve from which calcium is mobilized to maintain normal calcium levels in blood. A negative external calcium balance will therefore at all times impair skeletal integrity. In addition to the external calcium balance, skeletal homeostasis also depends on the proper differentiation and functioning of bone cells, which relies for a large part on intracellular Ca(2+) signaling. Members of the transient receptor potential (TRP) family of ion channels affect skeletal homeostasis by mediating processes involved in the extracellular as well as intracellular Ca(2+) balance, including intestinal calcium absorption (TRPV6), renal calcium reabsorption (TRPV5), and differentiation of osteoclasts (TRPV1, TRPV2, TRPV4, TRPV5), chondrocytes (TRPV4), and possibly osteoblasts (TRPV1). In this review, we will give a brief overview of the systemic calcium homeostasis and the intracellular Ca(2+) signaling in bone cells with special focus on the TRP channels involved in these processes.

  • The Osteocyte as the New Discovery of Therapeutic Options in Rare Bone Diseases.

    abstract::Osteocytes are the most abundant (~95%) cells in bone with the longest half-life (~25 years) in humans. In the past osteocytes have been regarded as vestigial cells in bone, since they are buried inside the tough bone matrix. However, during the last 30 years it has become clear that osteocytes are as important as bon...
