MiR-29a-3p expression was decreased in experiment group correlated with compromised osteogenic differentiation. a FACS was performed to identify BMSCs and assess the purity of BMSCs. Immunofluorescence was carried out to show the cytoskeletal structures and the introcellular location of ALP proteins (b), and Runx2 proteins (c). d ALP staining and ALP activity assays were applied to detect osteogenic differentiation. e ARS staining was used to determine the mineralization of osteoblasts, mn: mineralized nodule. f Oil red O staining was conducted to analyze the adipogenesis of osteoblasts, drop: lipid drop. g Relative expression levels of miR-29a-3p, ALP mRNA and Runx2 mRNA in control and experiment groups. h Western blotting was used to detect ALP and Runx2 proteins in control and experiment groups. Results are represented as mean ± SD of three independent experiments. *P < 0.05
