Effects of genistein, daidzein and glycitein on the osteogenic and adipogenic differentiation of bone marrow stromal cells and on the adipogenic trans-differentiation of osteoblasts[Reference: WebLink
METHODS AND RESULTS:
The 3-(4, 5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2, 5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity and oil red O assays were used to examine the effects of genistein, diadzein and glycitein on the osteogenic and adipogenic differentiation of primary mouse bone marrow stromal cells (MSCs) and the adipogenic trans-differentiation of primary mouse osteoblasts. The results indicated that daidzein, genistein and glycitein at concentrations from 1 × 10−8mol/L to 1×10−5 mol/L promoted the proliferation of MSCs and osteoblasts; genistein, daidzein and glycitein promoted osteogenic differentiation and inhibited adipogenic differentiation of MSCs, and inhibited adipocytic transdifferentiation of osteoblasts at appropriate concentrations as 17β-estradiol.
It suggests that genistein, daidzein and glycitein regulate a dual differentiational process of MSCs into the osteogenic and adipogenic lineages, and trans-differentiational process of primary osteoblasts into the adipocyte lineages, causing a lineage shift toward osteoblast. Protective effects of them on bone may be mediated by a reversal of adipogenesis which may promote the proliferation, differentiation and mineralization of osteoblasts, and make adipocytes secrete less cytokines which may promote osteoclast formation and activation. In addition, the results also indicated that genistein, daidzein and glycitein may be helpful in preventing the development of steroid induced osteonecrosis.

Anti-obese and anti-diabetic effects of a mixture of daidzin and glycitin on C57BL/6J mice fed with a high-fat diet.[Pubmed: 25209298
METHODS AND RESULTS:
We investigated the effects of a mixture of daidzin and Glycitin, which are the glycoside-form isoflavones of daidzein and glycitein, respectively, on body weight, lipid levels, diabetic markers, and metabolism in a high-fat diet (HF) fed C57BL/6J mice for 92 days. The mice were divided into basic diet group (CON), HF group, and HF companied with the isoflavone mixture group (HFISO). Results showed that mice in HFISO had a significantly lower body weight and adipose tissue compared to HF group. Blood glucose, serum HbA1c, and serum insulin also showed lower levels in HFISO group. In addition, higher hepatic GSH level and lower serum 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) level were found in HFISO group mice.
This suggests that the regulation of oxidative stress by daidzin and Glycitin was closely related to the suppression of adipose tissue and the progression of diabetes.

The Protective Effect of Glycitin on UV-induced Skin Photoaging in Human Primary Dermal Fibroblast[Reference: WebLink
Exposure of strong and repeated UV on the skin leads to skin aging, characterized with wrinkling, sagging, dyspigmentation, and laxity. Numerous studies revealed that Matrix metalloproteinases are related to skin aging and functions as degrading enzyme of various types of collagen.
METHODS AND RESULTS:
Here, we attempted to evaluate the effectiveness of Glycitin (4'-hydroxy-6-methoxy-isoflavone-7-D-glucoside) on skin aging and mechanisms of action in UV-irradiated human dermal fibroblasts. Especially we focused on the expression of Matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1), which degrades procollagen type-I in dermis, by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay, Western blot, and reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction in cell lysates or media. Our results showed that Glycitin increased the viability of human dermal fibroblast and alleviated MMP-1 expression caused by UV irradiation. In addition, synthesis of type-I collagen was increased and UV-induced phosphorylation of ERK/JNK/p38 was decreased in dose-dependent manners. Taken together, we demonstrated that treatment with glycitein have a protective effect on skin aging by inhibiting of MMP-1 and increasing of collagen through ERK/JNK/P38 down-regulation, which may be mediated by the inhibition of ERK, JNK, and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinases.
We suggest that Glycitin is a potential agent for the treatment of skin ageing.

Characterization of a β-glucosidase from Sulfolobus solfataricus for isoflavone glycosides.[Pubmed: 21898127
The specific activity of a recombinant β-glucosidase from Sulfolobus solfataricus for isoflavones was: daidzin > Glycitin > genistin > malonyl genistin > malonyl daidzin > malonyl Glycitin. The hydrolytic activity of this enzyme for daidzin was highest at pH 5.5 and 90°C with a half-life of 18 h, a K (m) of 0.5 mM, and a k (cat) of 2532 s(-1). The enzyme converted 1 mM daidzin to 1 mM daidzein after 1 h with a molar yield of 100% and a productivity of 1 mM h(-1). Among β-glucosidases, that from S. solfataricus β had the highest thermostability, k (cat), k (cat)/K (m), conversion yield, and productivity in the hydrolysis of daidzin.

Glycitin regulates osteoblasts through TGF-β or AKT signaling pathways in bone marrow stem cells.[Pubmed: 27882117
Cell lines:Bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs)
Concentrations: 0.01, 0.5, 1, 5 and 10 μM
Incubation Time: 7 days
BMSCs (1-2×106 cells or 1-2×104 per well) are cultured in 6- or 96-well culture plates overnight at 37°C in an atmosphere containing 5% CO2. Glycitin is added to the wells at final concentrations of 0.01, 0.5, 1, 5 and 10 μM and cultured for 7 days. In cells cultured in 6-well culture plates, BMSCs are determined using Oil Red O staining and observed via light microscopy at 510 nm. BMSCs are fixed using 5% precooled paraformaldehyde for 30 min at 4°C and stained with 0.6% (w/v) Oil Red O solution for 15 min at room temperature. Cells stained with Oil Red O are washed with water (3×5 min) to remove unbound dye, and culture dishes are stained with 1 ml isopropyl alcohol for 10 min. In cells cultured in 96-well culture plates, BMSCs are determined via MTT assay. A total of 20 μl MTT (5 g/l) are added to each well and cultured for 4 h. The supernatant is removed and 200 μl dimethylsulfoxide are added to each well for 15 min. Optical density (OD) is measured using a microplate spectrophotometer at 570 nm. Proliferation rate is calculated using: OD treated / OD control × 100%.
