  • Refereed, Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Academic Press Inc., A single amino acid residue regulates the substrate affinity and specificity of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase, Hajime J. Yuasa; Mayumi Sugiura; Terue Harumoto, Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) is a heme-containing enzyme that catalyses the oxidative cleavage of L-Trp. The ciliate Blepharisma stoltei has four IDO genes (IDO-I, -II, -III and -IV), which seem to have evolved via two sequential gene duplication events. Each IDO enzyme has a distinct enzymatic property, where IDO-III has a high affinity for L-Trp, whereas the affinity of the other three isoforms for L-Trp is low. IDO-I also exhibits a significant catalytic activity with another indole compound: 5-hydroxy-L-tryptophan (5-HTP). IDO-I is considered to be an enzyme that is involved in the biosynthesis of the 5-HTP-derived mating pheromone, gamone 2. By analysing a series of chimeric enzymes based on extant and predicted ancestral enzymes, we identified Asn131 in IDO-I and Glu132 in IDO-III as the key residues responsible for their high affinity for each specific substrate. These two residues were aligned in an identical position as the substrate-determining residue (SDR). Thus, the substrate affinity and specificity are regulated mostly by a single amino acid residue in the Blepharisma IDO-I and IDO-III enzymes., 15 Feb. 2018, 640, 1, 9, Scientific journal
  • Refereed, PROTIST, ELSEVIER GMBH, URBAN & FISCHER VERLAG, Novel Specificity of IDO Enzyme Involved in the Biosynthesis of Mating Pheromone in the Ciliate Blepharisma stoltei, Mayumi Sugiura; Hajime J. Yuasa; Terue Harumoto, Mating pheromones (gamone 1 and gamone 2) in the ciliate Blepharisma are biologically active substances that trigger sexual reproduction (conjugation) under starvation conditions. Gamone 1 is a glycoprotein secreted by type I cells, and gamone 2 is a tryptophan (Trp)-derivative compound secreted by type II cells. Both gamones stimulate complementary mating type cells to promote each gamone production and induce pair formation. To elucidate the biosynthetic pathway of gamone 2, we investigated the enzymes involved in the pathway and the specificity of the enzymes. An RNA-seq analysis revealed that Blepharisma stoltei (Heterotrichea) possesses four indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) genes showing distinct expression patterns. Along with results from real-time PCR, these findings demonstrated that each IDO gene has different expression patterns that depend on the cellular conditions. Expression of IDO-I was correlated with the intensity of gamone 2 expression, and the recombinant IDO-I protein showed catalytic activity for 5-hydroxy-L-Trp (5-HTP) but very weak activity for L-Trp. Our results indicate that IDO-I is an enzyme evolutionary specialized to gamone 2 production in Blepharisma, and that the biosynthetic pathway for gamone 2 uses 5-HTP as an intermediate.

  • Refereed, RADIATION RESEARCH, RADIATION RESEARCH SOC, Low- and High-LET Ionizing Radiation Induces Delayed Homologous Recombination that Persists for Two Weeks before Resolving, Christopher P. Allen; Hirokazu Hirakawa; Nakako Izumi Nakajima; Sophia Moore; Jingyi Nie; Neelam Sharma; Mayumi Sugiura; Yuko Hoki; Ryoko Araki; Masumi Abe; Ryuichi Okayasu; Akira Fujimori; Jac A. Nickoloff, Genome instability is a hallmark of cancer cells and dysregulation or defects in DNA repair pathways cause genome instability and are linked to inherited cancer predisposition syndromes. Ionizing radiation can cause immediate effects such as mutation or cell death, observed within hours or a few days after irradiation. Ionizing radiation also induces delayed effects many cell generations after irradiation. Delayed effects include hypermutation, hyper-homologous recombination, chromosome instability and reduced clonogenic survival (delayed death). Delayed hyperrecombination (DHR) is mechanistically distinct from delayed chromosomal instability and delayed death. Using a green fluorescent protein (GFP) direct repeat homologous recombination system, time-lapse microscopy and colony-based assays, we demonstrate that DHR increases several-fold in response to low-LET X rays and high-LET carbon-ion radiation. Time-lapse analyses of DHR revealed two classes of recombinants not detected in colony-based assays, including cells that recombined and then senesced or died. With both low-and high-LETradiation, DHR was evident during the first two weeks postirradiation, but resolved to background levels during the third week. The results indicate that the risk of radiation-induced genome destabilization via DHR is time limited, and suggest that there is little or no additional risk of radiation-induced genome instability mediated by DHR with high-LET radiation compared to low-LET radiation.

  • Refereed, ZOOLOGICAL SCIENCE, ZOOLOGICAL SOC JAPAN, Two Possible Barriers Blocking Conjugation Between Different Megakaryotypes of Blepharisma, Mayumi Kobayashi; Mamiko Miura; Mari Takusagawa; Mayumi Sugiura; Terue Harumoto, We investigated mating pair formation between three Blepharisma species Blepharisma undulans, Blepharisma japonicum, and Blepharisma stoltei to determine whether their respective gamones (mating pheromones) effectively induce mating pairs between different species. Cell-free fluid from type II cells (CFF2) of B. undulans (megakaryotype II) induced pairing of B. japonicum and B. stoltei type I cells (megakaryotype IV), and CFF2 of B. japonicum and B. stoltei induced pairing of B. undulans type I cells. Cell-free fluid from B. undulans type I cells (CFF1) did not induce pairing of B. japonicum and B. stoltei type II cells, and CFF1 of B. japonicum and B. stoltei failed to induce pairing of B. undulans. CFF1 from B. japonicum and B. stoltei mutually induced pairing, as previously reported. These results indicate that gamone 2 is common among megakaryotypes II and IV, and that gamone 1 appears to be at least megakaryotype-specific. When cells belonging to megakaryotypes II and IV are separately pre-treated with effective gamones and mixed, mating pairs between megakaryotypes rarely form. Taken together, these results suggest at least two barriers, a gamone and a factor involved in pair formation, that prevent conjugation between different megakaryotypes of Blepharisma., Jan. 2015, 32, 1, 53, 61, Scientific journal
  • Refereed, STEM CELL REPORTS, CELL PRESS, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Generation-Associated Point Mutations Arise during the Initial Stages of the Conversion of These Cells, Mayumi Sugiura; Yasuji Kasama; Ryoko Araki; Yuko Hoki; Misato Sunayama; Masahiro Uda; Miki Nakamura; Shunsuke Ando; Masumi Abe, A large number of point mutations have been identified in induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) genomes to date. Whether these mutations are associated with iPSC generation is an important and controversial issue. In this study, we approached this critical issue in different ways, including an assessment of iPSCs versus embryonic stem cells (ESCs), and an investigation of variant allele frequencies and the heterogeneity of point mutations within a single iPSC clone. Through these analyses, we obtained strong evidence that iPSC-generation-associated point mutations occur frequently in a transversion-predominant manner just after the onset of cell lineage conversion. The heterogeneity of the point mutation profiles within an iPSC clone was also revealed and reflects the history of the emergence of each mutation. Further, our results suggest a possible approach for establishing iPSCs with fewer point mutations., Jan. 2014, 2, 1, 52, 63, Scientific journal
  • Refereed, NATURE, NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, Negligible immunogenicity of terminally differentiated cells derived from induced pluripotent or embryonic stem cells, Ryoko Araki; Masahiro Uda; Yuko Hoki; Misato Sunayama; Miki Nakamura; Shunsuke Ando; Mayumi Sugiura; Hisashi Ideno; Akemi Shimada; Akira Nifuji; Masumi Abe, The advantages of using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) instead of embryonic stem (ES) cells in regenerative medicine centre around circumventing concerns about the ethics of using ES cells and the likelihood of immune rejection of ES-cell-derived tissues(1,2). However, partial reprogramming and genetic instabilities in iPSCs(3-6) could elicit immune responses in transplant recipients even when iPSC-derived differentiated cells are transplanted. iPSCs are first differentiated into specific types of cells in vitro for subsequent transplantation. Although model transplantation experiments have been conducted using various iPSC-derived differentiated tissues(7-10) and immune rejections have not been observed, careful investigation of the immunogenicity of iPSC-derived tissue is becoming increasingly critical, especially as this has not been the focus of most studies done so far. A recent study reported immunogenicity of iPSC- but not ES-cell-derived teratomas(11) and implicated several causative genes. Nevertheless, some controversy has arisen regarding these findings(12). Here we examine the immunogenicity of differentiated skin and bone marrow tissues derived from mouse iPSCs. To ensure optimal comparison of iPSCs and ES cells, we established ten integration-free iPSC and seven ES-cell lines using an inbred mouse strain, C57BL/6. We observed no differences in the rate of success of transplantation when skin and bone marrow cells derived from iPSCs were compared with ES-cell-derived tissues. Moreover, we observed limited or no immune responses, including T-cell infiltration, for tissues derived from either iPSCs or ES cells, and no increase in the expression of the immunogenicity-causing Zg16 and Hormad1 genes in regressing skin and teratoma tissues. Our findings suggest limited immunogenicity of transplanted cells differentiated from iPSCs and ES cells., Feb. 2013, 494, 7435, 100, 104, Scientific journal
  • Refereed, PROTIST, ELSEVIER GMBH, URBAN & FISCHER VERLAG, Alternative Gene Expression in Type I and Type II Cells May Enable further Nuclear Changes during Conjugation of Blepharisma japonicum, Mayumi Sugiura; Yuri Tanaka; Toshinobu Suzaki; Terue Harumoto, In contrast to most ciliates, meiosis and successive nuclear changes during conjugation occur only in heterotypic pairs in Blepharisma. It has been suggested that homotypic pairs are ready for conjugation, but lack a trigger to initiate the nuclear changes, and the conjugation process is arrested before the onset of meiosis. To explore the possible nature of the trigger, we previously identified the genes BjCdk1 (homologous to cdk1/cdc2), Bj4HPPD (4-hydroxy-phenylpyruvate dioxygenase) and BjCks (cyclin dependent kinase regulatory subunit) whose expression is up-regulated in gamone1-treated type II cells. In this study, we investigated the molecular structures of these three genes, and compared their expression patterns in homotypic and heterotypic pairs, finding remarkable differences. BjCdk1, Bj4HPPD and BjCks were expressed specifically in gamone1-treated type II cells, but not in gamone2-treated type I cells. In heterotypic pairs, the expression of these genes stayed at the same level or gradually decreased throughout the entire process of conjugation, but it rapidly decreased and ceased after 10 hours in homotypic pairs. These results indicate that some genes are expressed in a mating-type specific manner. Alternative gene expression in mating type I and type II cells and merging of individual factors in a heterotypic pair may induce nuclear changes including meiosis. (C) 2011 Elsevier GmbH.

  • Refereed, STEM CELLS, WILEY-BLACKWELL, Crucial Role of C-Myc in the Generation of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells, Ryoko Araki; Yuko Hoki; Masahiro Uda; Miki Nakamura; Yuko Jincho; Chihiro Tamura; Misato Sunayama; Shunsuke Ando; Mayumi Sugiura; Mitsuaki A. Yoshida; Yasuji Kasama; Masumi Abe, c-Myc transduction has been considered previously to be nonessential for induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) generation. In this study, we investigated the effects of c-Myc transduction on the generation of iPSCs from an inbred mouse strain using a genome integration-free vector to exclude the effects of the genetic background and the genomic integration of exogenous genes. Our findings reveal a clear difference between iPSCs generated using the four defined factors including c-Myc (4F-iPSCs) and those produced without c-Myc (3F-iPSCs). Molecular and cellular analyses did not reveal any differences between 3F-iPSCs and 4F-iPSCs, as reported previously. However, a chimeric mice formation test indicated clear differences, whereby few highly chimeric mice and no germline transmission was observed using 3F-iPSCs. Similar differences were also observed in the mouse line that has been widely used in iPSC studies. Furthermore, the defect in 3F-iPSCs was considerably improved by trichostatin A, a histone deacetyl transferase inhibitor, indicating that c-Myc plays a crucial role in iPSC generation through the control of histone acetylation. Indeed, low levels of histone acetylation were observed in 3F-iPSCs. Our results shed new light on iPSC generation mechanisms and strongly recommend c-Myc transduction for preparing high-quality iPSCs.

  • Refereed, EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF PROTISTOLOGY, ELSEVIER GMBH, URBAN & FISCHER VERLAG, Behavioural changes induced by the conjugation-inducing pheromones, gamone 1 and 2, in the ciliate Blepharisma japonicum, Mayumi Sugiura; Hiromi Shiotani; Toshinobu Suzaki; Terue Harumoto, Preconjugant interactions between complementary mating-type cells in ciliates occur before sexual reproduction. The interactions include retardation of swimming behaviour, courtship dancing, chemoattraction, nuclear activation, cell division, or cell agglutination, depending on ciliate species. In Blepharisma japonicum, chemoattraction of mating-type I by mating-type II has been reported previously. It has been shown that chemoattraction here is caused by a conjugation-inducing substance called gamone 2 secreted by mating-type II cells. In this study, we show that mating-type II cells accumulate near the site where gamone 1 secreted by mating-type I cells is present at a high concentration. We also show that the behaviour of individual cells changes when exposed to the complementary mating-type gamone; cells begin to rotate and swim slowly, thus shortening their minimum path length (final displacement of a cell from its origin). These results suggest that gamones 1 and 2 induce behavioural changes in type II and I cells, respectively, and that gamone-stimulated cells may accumulate at the site with the highest activity of the complementary gamone, after repetition of swimming changes in the gradient of gamone concentration. This reciprocal induction of the changes in behaviour may increase the probability of sexual encounters for conjugation. (C) 2010 Elsevier GmbH.

  • Refereed, BIOORGANIC & MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY, PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, Synthesis of fluorescent molecular probes specific for the receptor of blepharismone, a mating-inducing pheromone of the ciliate Blepharisma japonicum, Yoshiyuki Uruma; Mayumi Sugiura; Terue Harumoto; Yoshinosuke Usuki; Hideo Iio, Blepharismone (gamone 2) is a mating-inducing pheromone of the ciliate Blepharisma japonicum. N-Pyrenylbutyryl-blepharismone and N-biphenylacetyl-blepharismone, which are fluorescent derivatives of blepharismone, were synthesized as molecular probes for the gamone 2 receptor. Further, we proved that they have inhibitory activities against the blepharismone-induced monotypic pairing of B. japonicum.

  • Refereed, Jpn. J. Protozool., Japan Society of Protistology, Cdk1 and cks gene homologs are transcriptionally activated during induction of conjugating pairs in mating-type II cells of the ciliate Blepharisma japonicum, Tanaka Y; Sugiura M; Harumoto T,

    In Blepharisma japonicum, conjugation is induced by interaction between cells of complementary mating-types I and II. Cells of both mating-types produce and secrete mating pheromones (gamones). Cells that have received complementary gamones undergo morphological changes (rounding) and start to unite. Nuclear changes, including meiosis, gametic nuclei exchange, fertilization and development of new macro- and micronuclei occur in the conjugants. Although conjugation is such a striking phenomenon, the molecular mechanism of induction of conjugation remains unknown. In order to identify genes that are involved in formation of conjugating pairs, we isolated genes that were expressed specifically in conjugation-induced type II cells, using suppression subtractive hybridization. To induce conjugation, we treated type II cells for 4 hours with a cell-free fluid from type I cells which contained gamone1. During this period, type II cells formed pairs, although these homotypic pairs never entered meiosis. We then purified polyA+RNA and subjected it to cDNA synthesis. This cDNA was then subtracted with cDNA that was prepared from untreated cells. We obtained eight gene fragments. Homology searches revealed that three of these fragments showed significant homology to the cdk family (cdk1 and cdk2), 4-hydroxy-phenylpyruvate dioxygenase (4-HPPD) and cyclin dependent kinase regulatory subunit (cks). Northern hybridization demonstrated that these three genes were specifically transcribed in cells treated with gamone1. We also found that the transcripts had already appeared 2 hours after the onset of gamone1 treatment. Cdk1 and cks are generally involved in cell-cycle regulation, but are here specifically expressed during induction of homotypic type II pairs that undergo neither mitosis nor meiosis.

  • Refereed, JOURNAL OF CELL SCIENCE, COMPANY OF BIOLOGISTS LTD, Developmentally and environmentally regulated expression of gamone 1: the trigger molecule for sexual reproduction in Blepharisma japonicum, M Sugiura; S Kawahara; H Iio; T Harumoto, Sexual reproduction (conjugation) in protozoan ciliates is induced by specific cell-cell interactions between cells of complementary mating types. The ancestral ciliate Blepharisma japonicum has two mating types, I and II. The substances that act as signaling molecules in this extracellular interaction for conjugation are called gamones. The glycoprotein gamone 1, produced by mating type I cells, is a key factor that triggers this interaction. We have previously isolated gamone 1 and determined its complete amino acid sequence. To elucidate the mechanism of initiation of conjugation in ciliates, we investigated the transcription of the gamone I gene and found that it is controlled by various internal and external factors. The gamone I gene transcript appeared specifically when sexually mature mating type I cells were starved. It was not detected in immature cells, mating type 11 cells or proliferating cells. The level of transcription was markedly increased in type I cells when they were stimulated with gamone 2, which is secreted by type H cells. This is the first report that the transcription of gamone genes in ciliates is strictly regulated by developmental and environmental factors. This study suggests that the onset of transcription of gamone I is linked to the switching mechanism that converts mitotically proliferating cells to differentiated preconjugants, the mechanism of differentiation from immature to mature cells in clonal development, and the mechanism that ensures mating type-specific gene silencing., Jun. 2005, 118, 12, 2735, 2741, Scientific journal

  • Refereed, PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, NATL ACAD SCIENCES, Identification, characterization, and complete amino acid sequence of the conjugation-inducing glycoprotein (blepharmone) in the ciliate Blepharisma japonicum, M Sugiura; T Harumoto, Conjugation in Blepharisma japonicum is induced by interaction between complementary mating-types I and II, which excrete blepharmone (gamone 1) and blepharismone (gamone 2), respectively. Gamone 1 transforms type II cells such that they can unite, and gamone 2 similarly transforms type I cells. Moreover, each gamone promotes the production of the other gamone. Gamone 2 has been identified as calcium-3-(2'-formylamino-5'-hydroxy-benzoyl) lactate and has been synthesized chemically. Gamone 1 was isolated and characterized as a glycoprotein of 20-30 kDa containing 175 amino acids and 6 sugars. However, the amino acid sequence and arrangement of sugars in this gamone are still unknown. To determine partial amino acid sequences of gamone 1, we established a method of isolation based on the finding that this glycoprotein can be concentrated by a Con A affinity column. Gamone 1 is extremely unstable and loses its biological activity once adsorbed to any of the columns that we tested. By using a Con A affinity column and native PAGE, we detected a 30-kDa protein corresponding to gamone 1 activity and determined the partial amino acid sequences of the four peptides. To isolate gamone 1 cDNA, we isolated mRNA from mating-type I cells stimulated by synthetic gamone 2 and then performed rapid amplification of cDNA ends procedures by using gene-specific primers and cloned DNA of gamone 1. The cDNA sequence contains an ORF of 305 amino acids and codes a possibly novel protein. We also estimated the arrangement of sugars by comparing the affinity to various lectin columns., Dec. 2001, 98, 25, 14446, 14451, Scientific journal

We have used the putative ancestral species of ciliate, Blepharisma stoltei, in which conjugation is induced between complementary mating type cells, I and II, under food-deprived conditions. First, we produced progeny strains by crossing type I and II cells, and observed precisely their mating-type expression patterns during sexual maturation. Then, we performed de novo RNA-seq analysis to compare gene expression among sexually immature cells and mature-type I and II cells. Finally, from the constructed transcriptome data, we have identified the enzyme involved in the biosynthetic pathway of mating pheromone, gamone 2, which is a tryptophan-derivative compound secreted by type II cells., url
  • Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B), 01 Apr. 2013, 31 Mar. 2016, 25290068, Genome instability during genome reprogramming, ARAKI RYOKO; FUJIMORI YUKO; SUNAYAMA MISATO; SUGIURA MAYUMI; UDA MASAHIRO, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B), National Institute of Radiological Sciences, 18330000, 14100000, 4230000, A significant number of point mutations have been suggested in all iPSC genomes examined thus far, arousing serious concerns about the use of iPSCs especially on immunogenicity and tumorigenesis. Here, we have developed a genome sequencing system which allows us to exclusively identify de novo point mutations and have attempted to reveal the amount and mode of point mutations. First, we compared iPSCs with ESCs and found more than 10 times point mutations in iPSC genomes compared to those in ESC genomes. Further, the point mutations observed in iPSC genomes exhibit a unique base substitution pattern, transversion-predominant. Next, we focused on the heterogeneity in an iPSC clone to directly identify the point mutations that arose during the iPSC generation. As a result, we found a large number of SNVs (single nucleotide variations), of which allele frequency were less than 50%. Our results indicates that current iPSC generation method contains mutagenic process., url

This study aimed at finding the molecular indicators for discriminating the quality of iPSCs. We focused on the histone-epigenetic modifications, and obtained the following results. (1) Acceleration of the histone acetylation was observed only in iPSCs with high developmental potential. (2) TSA-treatment on iPSCs showing low pluripotency elicited a temporary accumulation of histone acetylation, resulting in improving their developmental ability. (3) Analysis of the expression of histone modification-related factors suggested a close correlation between the degree of histone acetylation and the expression level of c-Myc and certain HDAC in iPSCs. Such a close correlation was not observed in ES cells. Gene knockdown experiments showed the HDAC is possible to affect differentiated state of iPSCs. (4) Genome integrity of each iPSC was not direct cause of its developmental potential., url

We have also conducted a nation -wide field survey of free-living and parasitic protozoans at more than 100 locations in Japan, including Abashiri area in Hokkaido and Minami Daito Island in Okinawa prefecture.

  • 特別研究員奨励費, 2006, 2008, 06J00714, 繊毛虫における有性生殖開始の分子メカニズムの解明, 杉浦 真由美, 日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業 特別研究員奨励費, 神戸大学, 3400000, 3400000, 「繊毛虫における有性生殖開始の分子メカニズムの解明」および「繊毛虫の有性生殖の多様性」を探ることを目的として、二種類の接合型と接合誘導物質(ガモン)から成る接合システムをもつブレファリズマを用いて以下の研究を行った。 ブレファリズマにおいて接合誘導のキーファクターであるガモン1の作用機構を明らかにするため、II型細胞が細胞表面に有すると考えられるガモン1受容体の局在解析および単離同定を試みた。ガモン1で処理したII型細胞を固定し、本研究課題において作製したガモン1抗体を用いて蛍光抗体法を行った。その結果、ガモン1で処理したII型細胞において、口部膜板帯と繊毛および繊毛列に強いシグナルが検出された。また、ガモン1受容体を同定するため、接合能をもつII型細胞から膜分画を調製しガモン1と相互作用させた後、ガモン1抗体を用いて共免疫沈降法を行った。その結果、ガモン1と同じ挙動を示し、ガモン1と相互作用している可能性の高い幾つかのタンパク質を検出した。繊毛虫の交配フェロモンの受容体に関する研究は非常に乏しく、本研究成果は繊毛虫の有性生殖の分子メカニズムを解明する上で貴重な知見となり得る。 同定されている繊毛虫の交配フェロモンの中で唯一の糖タンパク質であるガモン1の糖鎖の役割を解析するため、大腸菌を用いた組換えガモン1のタンパク質発現系の構築などを行い、糖鎖をもたないガモン1を作製し接合誘導活性を調べた。その結果、糖鎖をもたないガモン1はほとんど活性を示さず、ガモン1の糖鎖は接合誘導活性を引き出すのに重要な役割をもつと考えられた。 接合誘導時に特異的に働く遺伝子(ガモンを含む接合関連遺伝子)の機能解析を行うため、feeding RNAi法による標的遺伝子の発現抑制を試みた。 接合型特異的な転写制御機構の解明を目指し、接合型特異的な発現を示す幾つかの遺伝子について上流下流配列を単離した。
  • 若手研究(B), 2005, 2007, 17770193, 繊毛虫における有性生殖開始の分子メカニズムの解明, 杉浦 真由美, 日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業 若手研究(B), 奈良女子大学, 2700000, 2700000, 繊毛虫ブレファリズマの有性生殖(接合)開始の分子機構を解明するため、以下の研究を行った。 1、ガモン1遺伝子の転写調節領域の単離とその解析、ガモン1遺伝子の転写調節因子の単離を目的として インバースPCRによって接合誘導物質ガモン1遺伝子の5'上流1470塩基と3'下流393塩基の配列を決定した。配列の解析を行い、ガモン1遺伝子のコアプロモータと転写制御因子結合部位を推定した。 ガモン1の転写は接合型特異的に起こるため、両接合型細胞(I、II)におけるガモン1遺伝子の上流・下流配列を決定し、それらを比較した結果、完全に一致していることがわかった。接合型特異的な遺伝子発現を制御している因子や機構を探るため、ガモン1同様に接合型特異的に発現する遺伝子を探索した結果、cdc2、Cks、4-HPPDの各相同遺伝子がII型細胞特異的に発現することが明らかとなった。またhsp90は両接合型細胞において接合時に発現が増加した。さらにガモン1とこれらの遺伝子は接合過程の前半に多く転写されることを示した。 2、ガモン受容体の単離、同定を目的として ガモン1受容体の局在を探るため、ガモン1抗体を用いて蛍光抗体法、免疫電顕を行った。その結果、II型細胞の細胞表面(繊毛列)にシグナルがみられる傾向が示された。次に、His標識ガモン1、GST融合ガモン1を作製した。現在、ガモン1受容体の単離のため免疫沈降法を検討している。 ガモン2受容体の局在を探るため、大阪市立大学飯尾教授より提供していただいたピレン標識ガモン2の活性測定を行い蛍光顕微鏡観察を行った。その結果、ピレン標識ガモン2は強い接合阻害活性をもつことが明らかとなった。現在、蛍光顕微鏡観察の条件を検討中である。 本年度の研究成果の一部は、第12回国際原生動物学会議(中国)、第11回国際繊毛虫分子生物学会議(イタリア)と2つの国内学会で発表を行った。
