Abstract

Bone loss is an important clinical issue in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Whether the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) plays a direct role in bone cell function is yet unknown. In this study, we provide evidence that inhibition of CFTR-Cl(-) channel function results in a significant decrease of osteoprotegerin (OPG) secretion accompanied with a concomitant increase of prostaglandin (PG) E(2) secretion of primary human osteoblast cultures (n=5). Our data therefore suggest that in bone cells of CF patients, the loss of CFTR activity may result in an increased inflammation-driven bone resorption (through both the reduced OPG and increased PGE(2) production), and thus might contribute to the early bone loss reported in young children with CF.
