Differential metabolic effects of glucosamine and Nacetylglucosamine in human articular chondrocytes

Alexander R. Shikhman, Diana C. Brinson, Jean Valbracht and Martin K. Lotz

Abstract
Objective—Aminosugars are commonly used to treat osteoarthritis; however, molecular mechanisms mediating their anti-arthritic activities are still poorly understood. This study analyzes facilitated transport and metabolic effects of glucosamine (GlcN) and N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) in human articular chondrocytes.

Methods—Human articular chondrocytes were isolated from knee cartilage. Facilitated transport of glucose, GlcN and GlcNAc was measured by uptake of [ 3H]2-deoxyglucose, [ 3H]GlcN and [ 3H] GlcNAc. Glucose transporter (GLUT) expression was analyzed by Western blotting. Production of sulfated glycosaminoglycans (SGAG) was measured using [ 35 S]SO4. Hyaluronan read more…
