Figure 1. Effect of soy isoflavones on osteoclast formation in mouse bone marrow cell culture. Bone marrow cells were pre-cultured with M-CSF (30 ng/ml) for 3 days and then cultured with M-CSF (30 ng/ml) and RANKL (30 ng/ml) in the presence or absence of different concentrations of daidzein or genistein for 6 days. (A) TRAP(+)MNCs for daidzein treatment; (B) TRAP(+)MNCs for genistein treatment; (C) TRAP activity for daidzein treatment; (D) TRAP activity for genistein treatment. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM of 3 independent experiments. a,b,cMeans sharing the same letters are not significantly different, p < 0.05
