BACKGROUND: The OPG-RANKL-RANK transport system plays a crucial role in bone resorption mechanism of osteoclasts. OBJECTIVE: To observe the expression of OPG-RANKL-RANK signaling system in osteoclasts, osteoporosis, and the targeted therapy of OPG-RANKL-RANK signaling system. METHODS: We retrieved related literatures in the periodicals database with the key words of "osteoprotegerin, RANKL, RANK, osteoclasts, osteoporosis" in English and Chinese. According to the inclusion criteria, the literatures were included in this study after the evaluation of quality. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: The mature of osteoclasts is mediated via OPG-RANKL-RANK signaling system and its associated signaling pathways. This signal pathway leads to the mechanism of osteoporosis. At the genetic and molecular levels, the targeted therapy of osteoporosis has become the focus. OPG-RANKL-RANK signaling system can provide a research platform for targeted treatment of osteoporosis, and OPG-RANKL-RANK signaling system is an important way to the regulation of osteoclasts and osteoporosis. © 2015, Journal of Clinical Rehabilitative Tissue Engineering Research.
