Abstract

Bone homeostasis depends on the interplay between bone resporption by osteoclasts and bone formation by osteoblasts. Any Imbalance of this tightly regulated process can cause diseases such as osteoporosis. Therefore, the knowledge about the factors that regulate communication between osteoclasts and osteoblasts are critical to bone cell biology.Osteoporosis is a progressive systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass density and deterioration of bone tissue. Mature miRNAs are about 22 nucleotide long non coding RNA molecules that are involved in regulatory processes intracellularly. A number of scientific studies have revealed a comprehensive and evidential knowledge about miRNAs that affect the bone metabolism by influencing bone formation and resorption processes. In this short review we have summrized the regulatory role of some selective miRNAs in bone formation.
