T he Epigenator-Initiator-Maintainer axis determines the ultimate fate of the phenotype characteristics of the cellular functions within different organs of the body. The initiator signals (pertained within the realm of histone modifications, transcriptional control through transcription factors, and microRNAs) represent slowly ?dissipating? forces tilting the cell phenotype towards a more or less stable profile. However, phenotypic characteristics may be altered, i.e. changed or reinforced, as a result of developing diseases or gene therapy. Here, we present some results of manipulations of HDACs, transcription factors (TFs), microRNAs, as well as vitamin K2 status on mineralizing cells (osteoblasts), and non-mineralizing cells (epithelial cells) expose to both normal growth conditions and inflammation mediators (Th-cells, macrophages or interleukins), showing that it is possible to engineer cells with a phenotype where: 1) wanted mineralization is reinforced, and 2) unwanted mineralization is blocked. By using various algorithms, one may pinpoint regulatory loops, including TFs (e.g. SP1, SP3, and ETS1) and microRNAs (e.g. miRNAs 23, 27, 29, 133, 149, 204, 211, and 328). The subject TFs and MicroRNAs are also part of an intricate hierarchical regulation by several HDAC classes, including the Sirtuins, which respond to cellular rations of NADH/NAD+ (cellular energy status). Furthermore, it will be demonstrated how vitamin K2 (MK-7, via binding to SXR) interferes with several signaling pathways down-stream of several growth factor signaling mechanisms, thus either reinforcing or suppressing the mineralizing characteristics of different cell phenotypes.
