Abstract

Osteoporosis can result from the loss of sex hormones and/or aging. Abaloparatide (ABL), an analog of parathyroid hormone–related protein (PTHrP(1–36)), is the second osteoanabolic therapy approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration after teriparatide (PTH(1–34)). All three peptides bind PTH/PTHrP receptor type 1 (PTHR1), but the effects of PTHrP(1–36) or ABL in the osteoblast remain unclear. We show that, in primary calvarial osteoblasts, PTH(1–34) promotes a more robust cAMP response than PTHrP(1–36) and ABL and causes a greater activation of protein kinase A (PKA) and cAMP response element– binding protein (CREB). All three peptides similarly inhibited sclerostin (Sost). Interestingly, the three peptides differentially modulated two other PKA target genes, c-Fos and receptor activator of NF-B ligand (Rankl), and the latter both in vitro and in vivo. Knockdown of salt-inducible kinases (SIKs) 2 and 3 and CREB-regulated transcription coactivator 3 (CRTC3), indicated that all three are part of the pathway that regulates osteoblastic Rankl expression. We also show that the peptides differentially regulate the nuclear localization of CRTC2 and CRTC3, and that this correlates with PKA activation. Moreover, inhibition of protein phosphatases 1 and 2A (PP1/PP2A) activity revealed that they play a major role in both PTH-induced Rankl expression and the effects of PTH(1–34) on CRTC3 localization. In summary, in the osteoblast, the effects of PTH(1–34), PTHrP(1–36), and ABL on Rankl are mediated by differential stimulation of cAMP/PKA signaling and by their downstream effects on SIK2 and -3, PP1/PP2A, and CRTC3.
