Paper Title:
The Effect Orthosilicic Acid on Collagen Type I, Alkaline Phosphatase and Osteocalcin mRNA Expression in Human Bone-Derived Osteoblasts In Vitro
  Abstract

The object of this study was to investigate the effect of the concentration of orthosilicic acid (0, 0.5, 1, 5 and 10µM) on gene expression in human osteoblast cells isolated from trabecular bone. This was measured using reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to quantify messenger RNA (mRNA) levels for collagen type I, alkaline phosphatase and osteocalcin. Results showed that while collagen type I mRNA expression was increased by the addition of up to 10µM orthosilicic acid, ALP message was suppressed over time and osteocalcin levels were decreased.
