Bone morphogenetic protein-6 (BMP-6) is a potent inducer of osteogenic differentiation and its expression is stimulated by 17beta-estradiol. The existence of a regulatory loop between sex steroids and BMP-6 is therefore reasonable to hypothesize. Here we determined whether the sex steroids 17beta-estradiol and dihydrotestosterone, and the phytoestrogen resveratrol can modulate BMP-6-induced alkaline phosphatase activity and osteocalcin expression. Mesenchymal cells of murine (osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cells, preadipogenic ST2 cells, prechondrogenic ATDC5 cell) and human origin (osteosarcoma SaOS and HOS cells, primary bone marrow stromal cells) were cultured in the presence of recombinant BMP-6 under serum-free conditions. BMP-6 dose-, and time-dependently increased alkaline phosphatase activity in murine cell lines, but not in human cells. Osteocalcin expression was also increased upon stimulation with BMP-6. The presence of 17beta-estradiol, dihydrotestosterone, and resveratrol had no effect on BMP-6-induced alkaline phosphatase activity and osteocalcin expression. These data suggest that osteogenic differentiation in response to BMP-6 occurs independent of steroid hormones and resveratrol in mesenchymal cells that express basal receptor levels.
