INTRODUCTION: Bone remodeling is a tightly regulated process influenced by chemokines. ACKR2 is a decoy receptor for CC chemokines functioning as regulator of inflammatory response. In this study we investigated whether the absence of ACKR2 would affect bone phenotype and remodeling induced by mechanical loading. METHODS: An orthodontic appliance was placed between incisors and first molar of ACKR2 deficient (ACKR2-/-) and C57BL6/J (wild-type/WT) mice. Microtomography, histology and qPCR were performed to evaluate bone parameters, orthodontic tooth movement (OTM), bone cells counts and the expression of ACKR2, bone remodeling markers, CC chemokines and chemokines receptors. Bone marrow cells (BMC) from WT and ACKR2-/- mice were differentiated in osteoclasts and osteoblasts for analysis of activity and expression of specific markers. RESULTS: Mechanical stimulus induced ACKR2 production in periodontium. The expression of ACKR2 in vitro was mostly detected in mature osteoclasts and early-differentiated osteoblasts. Although ACKR2-/- mice exhibited regular phenotype in maxillary bone, the amount of OTM, osteoclasts counts and the expression of pro-resorptive markers were increased in this group. In contrast, the number of osteoblasts and related markers were decreased. OTM resulted in augmented expression of CC chemokines and receptors CCR5 and CCR1 in periodontium, which was higher in ACKR2-/- than WT mice. In vitro experiments demonstrated an augmented formation of osteoclasts and diminished differentiation of osteoblasts in ACKR2-/- mice. CONCLUSIONS: These data suggests that ACKR2 functions as a regulator of mechanically-induced bone remodeling by affecting the differentiation and activity of bone cells and the availability of CC chemokines at periodontal microenvironment. Therapeutic strategies based on increase of ACKR2 might be useful to hinder bone loss in inflammatory conditions.
