Background: Osteocrin

Osteocrin, also known as Musclin, is a secreted protein that is primarily expressed in bone and muscle. It is synthesized as a proprotein (11 kDa) that undergoes proteolytic processing to generate a mature 50 amino acid C-terminal active peptide (1). It was found to modulate osteoblast differentation and to regulate glucose metabolism in muscles (2). Mouse Osteocrin proprotein shares 77% and 78% amino acid sequence identity with the rat and human protein, respectively. Secretion of Osteocrin has been shown to be increased with exercise and is associated with metabolically beneficial formation of brown fat (3). Osteocrin has also been attributed to increases in exercise endurance through promotion of mitochondrial biosynthesis (4). Based on similarities with NPs (natriuretic peptides), Osteocrin was found to interact with NP clearance receptor NPR-C. This interaction is thought to modulate the availability of NPs, importantly increasing CNP which has been shown to stimulate endochondral ossification and elongate bones (5). In primates, Osteocrin may have evolved to regulate neuronal structure and function (6).
