Tescalcin plays an important role in the proliferation and differentiation of certain cell types. It is involved in the signaling pathways of mitogen-activated protein kinase and is reported to directly interact with subunit 4 of COP9 signalosome and Na/H exchanger NHE1. Since tescalcin is one of the factors that allow one type of progenitor cells differentiate into a variety of specialized cell types, it can be a potential molecular tool for modulation of phenotype of target cells. The ability of adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSCs) to differentiate into osteogenic direction makes them a promising adult stem cell type for regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. Here we show that ADSCs with tescalcin overexpression had a significantly higher level of matrix mineralization compared with control ADSCs. This finding indicates that ectopic tescalcin overexpression might affect osteogenic differentiation of ADSCs.
