Inhibition of osteoclast differentiation by azurocidin. Mouse bone marrow monocytes (BMM) isolated from BALB/c mice were incubated in media containing RANKL (20 ng/ml) plus M-CSF (20 ng/ml) with the given concentration of azurocidin for 3 days. Osteoclast differentiation was evaluated by TRAP staining. The fused osteoclast cells revealed by TRAP staining were decreased with increasing dosages of azurocidin.
