  • Objectives This study was performed to evaluate the effect of Pyrola japonica extract (NJ) and its principal constituent, homoarbutin (HA) on osteoclast differentiation and gene expression and bone resorption. The osteoclastogenesis and gene expression were determined in receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B ligand (RANKL)-stimulated RAW264.7 cell. Methods In order to evaluate the effect of HA extracted from NJ on bone resorption, osteoclasts were used to be differentiated and formed by stimulating RAW264.7 cells with RANKL. Tartarate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) (+) polynuclear osteoclast formation ability was evaluated, and differentiation control genes including cathepsin K, matrix metalloproteinases-9 (MMP-9), and TRAP in osteoclast differentiation were analyzed by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Immunoblotting was performed to measure the effect of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) factors on bone resorption, and the effect of osteoclasts on osteoclast differentiation was measured. Results Both NJ and high concentration of HA blocked RANKL-stimulated differentiation from RAW264.7 cell to TRAP-positive multinucleated cells. NJ reduced RANKL-induced expression of TRAP, cathepsin K. Both NJ and high concentration of HA inhibited RANKL-mediated expression of MMP-9, nuclear factor of activated T-cells, cytoplasmic 1, and cellular Jun-fos. NJ suppressed RANKL-stimulated expression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), inducible nitric oxide synthase, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and levels of interleukins. Both NJ and HA decreased bone resorption in osteoclast-induced bone pit formation model. Conclusions These results suggest that NJ and HA blocked bone resorption by decreasing RANKL-mediated osteoclastogenesis through down-regulation of genes for osteoclast differentiation.

  • Six known phenolic glycosides, hyperin(2), androsin(3), homoarbutin(4), isohomoarbutin(4a), pirolatin(7) and monotropein(6), together with two new compounds. (1)[mp. 215~217 $^{\circ}C$, $C_{23}$H$_{32}$O$_{11}$] and (5) [mp. 121~123 $^{\circ}C$, $C_{18}$H$_{26}$O$_{8}$] were isolated from the BuOH fraction of Pyrola japonica(Pyrolaceae). The structures of the known compounds were determined by chemical and spectroscopic methods. The assignments of the $^1$H- and $^{13}$C-NMR spectra of these compounds were carried out by two-dimensional $^1$H-$^1$H-COSY, NOESY and $^1$H-$^{13}$C multiple-bond, multiple-quantum spectroscopic correlation techniques, and previous assignments for 4. 4a and 7 should be revised. The characterization of the two new compounds is now in progress.
