Denosumab is a game-changing drug for giant cell tumor of bone (GCTB); however, its clinical biomarker regarding tumor ossification of GCTB has not been elucidated. In this study, we investigated the relationship between Wnt/β-catenin signaling and the ossification of GCTB and evaluated whether endogenous nuclear β-catenin expression predicted denosumab-induced bone formation in GCTB. Genuine patient-derived primary GCTB tumor stromal cells exhibited osteoblastic characteristics. Identified osteoblastic markers and nuclear β-catenin translocation were significantly upregulated via differentiation induction and were inhibited by treating with Wnt signaling inhibitor, GGTI-286, or selective Rac1-LEF inhibitor, NSC23766. Furthermore, we reviewed the endogenous ossification and nuclear β-catenin translocation of 86 GCTB clinical samples and elucidated that intra-tumoral ossification was significantly associated with the nuclear translocation. Three-dimensional quantitative analyses (n = 13) of tumoral CT images have revealed that the nuclear β-catenin translocation of naïve GCTB samples was significantly involved with the denosumab-induced tumor ossification. Our findings suggest a close relationship between the nuclear β-catenin translocation and the osteoblastic differentiation of GCTB. Investigations of the nuclear β-catenin in naïve GCTB samples may provide a promising biomarker for predicting the ossification of GCTB following denosumab treatment.
