Figure 3. Combined effect of soy isoflavones and DHA 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 10 μM daidzein or genistein with or without 20 μM DHA for 6 days. (A) TRAP(+)MNCs for combination of isoflavones and DHA treatment; (B) TRAP activity for combination of isoflavones and DHA treatment. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM of 3 independent experiments. Means sharing the same letters are not significantly different, p < 0.05 (a,b,c,dSmall letters: Control vs Daidzein, A,B,C,DCapital letters: Control vs Genistein)
