These lncRNAs (AC078851.1, RP11-45A16.4, XLOC_002932, RP4-613B23.1, and RP11-305L7.6) and mRNAs (ALP, COL1A1, and COL1A20) are upregulated and BMP5 and IL6 are downregulated as verified by Q-PCR indicating that there are 131 pairs of lncRNA-mRNA regulatory relationships and 262 pairs of positive regulatory relationships, and MAPK, VEGF, and TGF-[beta] signaling pathways were mainly involved in the regulation during osteogenic differentiation process [47].
