Photobiomodulation (PBM) has been repeatedly reported to play a major role in the regulation of osteoblast proliferation and mineralization. Autophagy is closely associated with various pathophysiological processes in osteoblasts, while its role in oxidative stress is even more critical. However, there is still no clear understanding of the mechanism of the role of autophagy in the regulation of osteoblast mineralization and apoptosis under oxidative stress by PBM. It was designed to investigate the impact of 808 nm PBM on autophagy and apoptosis in mouse preosteoblast MC3T3-E1 treated with hydrogen peroxide (HO) through PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway. PBM could inhibit MC3T3-E1 cell apoptosis under oxidative stress and promote the expression of osteogenic proteins, while enhancing the level of autophagy. In contrast, 3-methyladenine (3-MA) inhibited the expression of osteoblast autophagy under oxidative stress conditions, increased apoptosis, and plus counteracted the effect of PBM on osteoblasts. We also found that PBM suppressed the activated PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway during oxidative stress and induced autophagy in osteoblasts. PBM promoted autophagy of MC3T3 cells and was further blocked by 740 Y-P, which reversed the effect of PBM on MC3T3 cells with HO. In conclusion, PBM promotes autophagy and improves the level of osteogenesis under oxidative stress by inhibiting the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway. Our results can lay the foundation for the clinical usage of PBM in the treatment of osteoporosis.
