Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common articular disease manifested by the destruction of cartilage and compromised chondrogenesis in the aging population, with chronic inflammation of synovium, which drives OA progression. Importantly, the activated synovial fibroblast (AF) within the synovium facilitates OA through modulating key molecules, including regulatory microRNAs (miR`s). To understand OA associated pathways, in vitro co-culture system, and in vivo papain-induced OA model were applied for this study. The expression of key inflammatory markers both in tissue and blood plasma were examined by qRT-PCR, western blot, immunohistochemistry, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and immunofluorescence assays. Herein, our result demonstrated, AF-activated human chondrocytes (AC) exhibit elevated NFκB, TNF-α, IL-6, and miR-21 expression as compared to healthy chondrocytes (HC). Importantly, AC induced the apoptosis of HC and inhibited the expression of chondrogenesis inducers, SOX5, TGF-β1, and GDF-5. NFκB is a key inflammatory transcription factor elevated in OA. Therefore, SC75741 (an NFκB inhibitor) therapeutic effect was explored. SC75741 inhibits inflammatory profile, protects AC-educated HC from apoptosis, and inhibits miR-21 expression, which results in the induced expression of GDF-5, SOX5, TGF-β1, BMPR2, and COL4A1. Moreover, ectopic miR-21 expression in fibroblast-like activated chondrocytes promoted osteoblast-mediated differentiation of osteoclasts in RW264.7 cells. Interestingly, in vivo study demonstrated SC75741 protective role, in controlling the destruction of the articular joint, through NFκB, TNF-α, IL-6, and miR-21 inhibition, and inducing GDF-5, SOX5, TGF-β1, BMPR2, and COL4A1 expression. Our study demonstrated the role of NFκB/miR-21 axis in OA progression, and SC75741′s therapeutic potential as a small-molecule inhibitor of miR-21/NFκB-driven OA progression.
