Human osteoblasts were obtained by migration and proliferation of cells from embryonic membranous bone on glass fragments. Light and electron microscopy analyses revealed a typical osteoblast-like appearance with high protein synthesis activity. The cells showed high alkaline phosphatase activity that was associated with plasma membranes and matrix vesicles and was 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3] responsive. In contrast to the adult osteoblasts, embryonic cells could not produce detectable levels of osteocalcin, not even in the presence of 1,25(OH)2D3. Osteoblasts grown in multilayers produced a thick extracellular matrix, mainly composed of type I collagen, that mineralized in the presence of 10 mM beta-glycerophosphate. Because of their intrinsic osteogenic capacity, embryonic osteoblasts represent a valuable model for studying the mineralization process in vitro. In addition, the embryonic origin of these cells renders them a precious experimental system for the elucidation of mechanisms at the basis of differentiation of osteoblastic lineage.
