Vaspin (visceral adipose tissue-derived serine protease inhibitor) is a newly discovered adipokine that widely participates in diabetes mellitus, polycystic ovarian syndrome and other disorders of metabolism. However, the effect of vaspin on the regulation of osteogenesis and the mechanism responsible are still unclear. Here, we found that vaspin could attenuate the ALP activities, osteocalcin secretion and Runx2 expression in the preosteoblast cell line MC3T3-E1 in a dose-dep...
