Over-production and activation of osteoclasts is a common feature of osteolytic conditions such as osteoporosis, tumor-associated osteolysis, and inflammatory bone erosion. Cyanidin Chloride, a subclass of anthocyanin, displays antioxidant and anti-carcinogenesis properties, but its role in osteoclastic bone resorption and osteoporosis is not well understood. In this study, we showed that Cyanidin Chloride inhibits osteoclast formation, hydroxyapatite resorption, and receptor activator of NF-κB ligand (RANKL)-induced osteoclast marker gene expression; including ctr, ctsk, and trap. Further investigation revealed that Cyanidin Chloride inhibits RANKL-induced NF-κB activation, suppresses the degradation of IκB-α and attenuates the phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERK). In addition, Cyanidin Chloride abrogated RANKL-induced calcium oscillations, the activation of nuclear factor of activated T cells calcineurin-dependent 1 (NFATc1), and the expression of c-Fos. Further, we showed that Cyanidin Chloride protects against ovariectomy-induced bone loss in vivo. Together our findings suggest that Cyanidin Chloride is capable of inhibiting osteoclast formation, hydroxyapatite resorption and RANKL-induced signal pathways in vitro and OVX-induced bone loss in vivo, and thus might have therapeutic potential for osteolytic diseases.

Recent studies suggest that phytochemicals, as part of the food matrix, might alter the toxicity of nanoparticles (NPs); however, relatively few studies have investigated the impact of anthocyanidins on the toxicity of NPs to cells lining the gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, this study used cyanidin chloride (CC) as the model for anthocyanidins and investigated the effects of CC on the toxicity of ZnO or Ag NPs to Caco-2 cells. Exposure to ZnO but not Ag NPs significantly induced cytotoxicity. The presence of CC, but not its analog quercetin (Qu), modestly protected Caco-2 cells from ZnO NP exposure. However, the intracellular superoxide, Zn ions, or release of interleukin-8 after ZnO NP exposure were not significantly affected by the presence of CC. Rather, CC promoted the expression of autophagic genes ATG5, ATG7, and BECN1 as well as the ratio of LC3-II/I after exposure to ZnO NPs. Meanwhile, the presence of autophagic inhibitors (chloroquine, NH4Cl, bafilomycin A1) significantly promoted the cytotoxicity of ZnO NPs and inhibited the cytoprotective effects of CC. In conclusion, these data suggest that CC could modestly protect Caco-2 cells from ZnO NP exposure, probably through the induction of autophagy.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer worldwide and a leading cause of cancer-related deaths in developed countries. Anthocyanins are a class of flavonoids, widely distributed in food, exhibiting important biological effects. Cyanidin chloride (CyCl) is the common type of anthocyanin with antioxidative and anti-inflammatory potential. The present study aimed to investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying the chemotherapeutic effects of CyCl in colorectal cancer cells. We found that CyCl treatment induced apoptosis as well as a significant inhibition of cellular proliferation and colony formation in three colon cancer HCT116, HT29, and SW620 cells. In addition, CyCl suppressed nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) signaling and induced the activation of the nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) pathway in tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α)-stimulated colon cancer cells. Nrf2 and NF-κB are two key transcription factors regulating antioxidative responses and cellular proliferation, respectively. In this study, knockdown of Nrf2 by small interfering RNA (siRNA) transfection inhibited the effect of CyCl on NF-κB signaling and apoptosis, suggesting that there is functional crosstalk between Nrf2 and NF-κB. Our findings demonstrate the important role of Nrf2 in inducing apoptosis through the involvement of NF-κB signaling in colorectal cancer cells, suggesting that CyCl may be used as a potential therapeutic agent for CRC.
