Switch-on mode of bioenergetic channels regulated by curcumin-loaded 3D composite scaffold to steer bone regeneration

Chemical Engineering Journal 2023 Volume 452, Part 1, Article 139165

Metabolic energy to steer osteoblastic differentiation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) could be a promising therapeutic target for bone tissue engineering (BTE), but prior knowledge of this issue is limited. To address bone defects with BTE, we customized a three-dimensional (3D)-printed composite scaffold (Cur@MS) to allow the controlled release of curcumin, which could facilitate the “switch-on” mode of Glucose transporter 1 (GLUT1) in BMSCs. Consequently, bioenergetic channels, i.e. glucose uptake, were “switched on” to activate GLUT1-RUNX2 crosstalk, which was closely orchestrated with bone regeneration. Furthermore, curcumin-induced cholesterol/lipid raft (Cho/LR) was a “sensor” to trigger the “switch” (GLUT1) by…
