  • Molecular cloning of bullfrog prolactin receptor cDNA: changes in prolactin receptor mRNA level during metamorphosis

    Hasunuma, I, K Yamamoto, S Kikuyama

    GENERAL AND COMPARATIVE ENDOCRINOLOGY   138 ( 3 ) 200 - 210  2004年09月

     概要を見る

    In amphibian larvae, prolactin (PRL) is known to possess growth-promoting and anti-metamorphic activities. For further understanding of the role of PRL in larvae, bullfrog PRL receptor (bfPRLR) cDNA was obtained from the tail fin of premetamorphic tadpoles by use of the reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) coupled with 5'- and 3'-rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE). The predicted bfPRLR was composed of 617 amino acids, contained a single transmembrane domain, and showed 33-57% sequence homologies with known sequences of vertebrate PRLRs. When bfPRLR was transiently expressed, specific binding of I-125-labeled bullfrog PRL (bfPRL) was observed. By Northern blot analysis, a 3-kb transcript was detected in the tail fin. By RTPCR bfPRLR mRNA expression was detected mainly in the brain, kidney, skin, and tail throughout prometamorphic and middle climactic periods. The results of an RNase protection assay revealed that the bfPRLR mRNA level in the tail fin increased around the onset of climax (stage XX) and was maintained at a relatively high value at least until mid-climax (stage XXII). It also revealed that bfPRLR mRNA level in the kidney of larvae gradually rose as metamorphosis progressed. The results support the view that PRL in larval period acts not only on the larval organs but also on the organs that are necessary for the adult life to maintain or develop their structures and functions.

  • Molecular cloning of bullfrog corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF): effect of homologous CRF on the release of TSH from pituitary cells in vitro

    Y Ito, R Okada, H Mochida, H Hayashi, K Yamamoto, S Kikuyama

    GENERAL AND COMPARATIVE ENDOCRINOLOGY   138 ( 3 ) 218 - 227  2004年09月

     概要を見る

    Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) plays multiple roles in vertebrate species. In non-mammalian vertebrates, CRF has been considered to be the major thyrotropin (TSH)-releasing factor. This notion, however, was derived from experimental data on CRF of mammalian origin. Moreover, in the case of amphibians it has never been directly proved that CRF stimulates the release of TSH from the pituitary. The presently described experiment was conducted to provide direct evidence that homologous CRF enhances the release of TSH from the bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) pituitary. First, cloning of cDNA encoding bullfrog CRF (fCRF) was accomplished. The cDNA encoding fCRF precursor was isolated from a cDNA library of the bullfrog hypothalamus. The amino acid sequence of fCRF predicted from the amplified cDNA sequence showed 83 and 95% identities with the sequences of ovine and human CRFs, respectively. An antiserum against the fCRF synthesized on the basis of the amino acid sequence was raised and used for immunohistochemical staining of the hypothalamus-hypophyseal region of the bullfrog brain. It stained some of the cell bodies situated mainly in the preoptic area, the nucleus infundibularis dorsalis and nucleus hypothalamicus ventralis and the axons that terminate in the median eminence and neural lobe. The synthetic fCRF was tested for its TSH-releasing activity toward anterior pituitary cells of adult bullfrogs in an in vitro system. As a result, the fCRF caused the release of TSH from the dispersed pituitary cells into the culture medium concentration-dependently, as measured by a specific radioimmunoassay for bullfrog TSH. The potency of the fCRF was almost equivalent to that of ovine CRF. Human urocortin III (hUCN III), a CRF receptor type 2 (CRF-R2) specific agonist enhanced the release of TSH from the pituitary cells in culture, suggesting the involvement of CRF-R2 in the CRF-induced TSH release in the bullfrogs. Culture of pituitary cells in the presence of the hypothalamic extract (HE) and alpha-helical CRF9-41, a CRF-R antagonist, revealed that the antagonist suppressed the TSH-releasing activity of the HE by approximately 50%, suggesting that endogenous CRF contributes as a TSH-releasing factor.

  • Processing of multiple forms of preprosodefrin in the abdominal gland of the red-bellied newt Cynops pyrrhogaster: regional and individual differences in preprosodefrin gene expression

    PEPTIDES   25 ( 9 ) 1537 - 1543  2004年09月

     概要を見る

    Peptides derived from the post-translational processing of preprosodefrin were isolated from an extract of the abdominal glands of male red-bellied newts Cynops pyrrhogaster obtained 5 months prior to the onset of the breeding season. Structural characterization of the peptides showed that the pheromone sodefrin (SIPSKDALLK) is stored in a biologically inactive COOH-terminally extended form (SIPSKDALLKISA). It follows, therefore. that the activation of a protease that cleaves at a Lys-Ile bond to generate the active pheromone must occur by the time of onset of reproductive behavior. Additional peptides (representing preprosodefrin-(146-175)-peptide and preprosodefrin-(159-173)-peptide), that are derived from the precursor by cleavage at monobasic and dibasic processing sites, were also purified from the extract. The isolation of paralogs of these peptides, including an inactive COOH-terminally extended form of [Asn(10)]sodefrin, provides evidence for the expression of multiple genes encoding preprosodefrin. PCR products derived from total RNAs from the abdominal gland of individual newts collected from three different regions of Japan were analyzed. The data confirm the existence of multiple genes encoding sodefrin and its variants whose expression varied according to the individuals and the regions. However, genes encoding sodefrin were found to be expressed in all the specimens sampled. (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

     概要を見る

    This article reviews the current state of understanding of reproductive pheromones in amphibians, focusing mainly on the purification and characterization of peptide pheromones in newts of the genus Cynops, molecular cloning of cDNAs encoding the pheromone molecules, and hormonal control of secretion of these pheromones. Pheromones that attract sexually developed female Cynops pyrrhogaster and C. ensicauda newts were isolated from the male abdominal glands. The C. pyrrhogaster and C. ensicauda pheromones are peptides, designated sodefrin and silefrin. with the amino acid sequences SIPSKDALLK and SILSKDAQLK, respectively. Each pheromone attracts only conspecific females. Molecular cloning of cDNAs encoding sodefrin and silefrin revealed the presence of precursor proteins that are considered to generate these pheromone peptides. Pheromone precursor mRNA levels and radioimmunoassayable pheromone concentrations in the abdominal glands were elevated by prolactin and androgen. Sexual dimorphism and hormone dependency of the responsiveness of vomeronasal epithelium to sodefrin were noted. Significance of pheromones in the form of peptide for those performing reproductive behavior in an aquatic environment was also discussed. (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

  • Possible direct induction by estrogen of calcitonin secretion from ultimobranchial cells in the goldfish

    N Suzuki, K Yamamoto, Y Sasayama, T Suzuki, T Kurokawa, A Kambegawa, AK Srivastav, S Hayashi, S Kikuyama

    GENERAL AND COMPARATIVE ENDOCRINOLOGY   138 ( 2 ) 121 - 127  2004年09月

     概要を見る

    The plasma level of calcitonin (CT), a calcium (Ca)-regulating hormone, is known to increase in female teleosts during the reproductive period. In the present study, a correlation between plasma CT and Ca and one between plasma CT and the gonad somatic index were demonstrated in the female goldfish but not in the male. To clarify the relationship between CT and Ca, we examined the plasma CT and Ca levels after injecting immature goldfish with estrogen. At day 1, the plasma CT level significantly increased, whereas the plasma Ca level was not changed from its initial level. This result suggests that the trigger of CT secretion is estrogen and that estrogen directly acts on the ultimobranchial gland (UBG), a CT-secreting organ. To determine whether the UBG is equipped with estrogen receptor (ER), an ER binding assay and immunohistochemical staining of UBG cells with an antibody against ER were conducted. As a result, estrogen-specific binding (K-d, 18.52 nM; B-max, 1.35 pmol/mg protein) and ER-immunoreactivity in the UBG were demonstrated. Furthermore, the expression of alpha, beta, and gamma types of ER in the UBG was also detected by use of the reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction. Thus, we concluded that estrogen acts on the UBG to induce the release of CT, which in turn plays an important role in reproduction directly and/or indirectly through Ca. This is the first report on the existence of ERs in a teleost UBG and the occurrence of CT secretion caused by estrogen. (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

  • Effect of bullfrog LH and FSH on newt testes under different temperatures

    GENERAL AND COMPARATIVE ENDOCRINOLOGY   138 ( 1 ) 1 - 7  2004年08月

     概要を見る

    Environmental temperature plays important roles for amphibian gonadal function. In this study, we examined the responses of testicular tissue of adult male newts (Cynops pyrrhogaster) to amphibian gonadotropins both in vitro and in vivo under different temperatures. When minced testes were incubated in vitro at different temperatures (8-37 degreesC) under an atmosphere of 95% O-2-5% CO2 for 3 It with bullfrog luteinizing hormone (LH) or follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), LH stimulated testosterone production more than FSH. The testosterone production increased as the incubation temperature increased. Hypophysectomized newts were injected with bullfrog LH or FSH and maintained at 8 or 18 degreesC. In the 18 degreesC group, the testicular weight of the hypophysectornized control decreased when compared with that of with the intact control. The testicular weight of the LH-treated hypophysectornized group decreased more than that of the hypophysectornized control, indicating that LH induced the evacuation of mature spermatozoa from the testes of LH-treated hypophysectomized newts. In the FSH-treated newts, the testicular weight was greater than that in the hypophysectomized control, and was maintained at a value similar to that of the intact control. In the 8 degreesC group, there was no significant difference in testicular size among the intact control, hypophysectomized control, and FSH-treated newts. LH strongly induced spermiation as it did at 18 degreesC. The plasma testosterone level in the hypophysectornized newts decreased dramatically, but LH was effective in restoring it. Its effect was more potent at 8 degreesC than at 18 degreesC. On the other hand, FSH did not induce a significant increase in the plasma testosterone levels at either temperatures. The results indicate a temperature-dependent difference in responsiveness of the testis both in vitro and in vivo to LH and FSH. (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

     概要を見る

    Immunohistochemical techniques were employed to investigate the distribution of orexin-A-like immunoreactivity in the bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) pituitary. Orexin-A-immunoreactive cells were scattered throughout the pars distalis. We found that these cells corresponded to the cells immunostained with antiserum against bullfrog prolactin (fPRL). Immunoelectron microscopic analysis indicated that an orexin-A-like substance coexisted with fPRL within secretory granules. Western blot analysis of bullfrog pituitary extract revealed that anti-human orexin-A antiserum labeled two separate bands which were not labeled with anti-fPRL antiserum. The present study has, for the first time, provided evidence of the intragranular colocalization of orexin-A-like and PRL immunoreactivities in the bullfrog pituitary. (C) 2003 Elsevier Inc.

     概要を見る

    A bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) beta-subunit (TSHbeta) antiserum was produced by employing a C- terminal peptide synthesized on the basis of the amino acid sequence deduced from bullfrog TSHbeta cDNA. Immunohistochemical studies revealed that the bullfrog adenohypophyseal cells that immunologically reacted with the anti-bullfrog TSHbeta corresponded to those positively stained with an antiserum against human (h) TSHbeta. The antiserum was used for the development of a specific and sensitive radioimmunoassay (RIA) for the measurement of bullfrog TSH. The sensitivity of the RIA was 0.75+/-0.07 ng TSH/100 mul assay buffer. The interassay and intraassay coefficients of variation were 7.6 and 5.3%, respectively. Several dilutions of pituitary homogenates of larval and adult bullfrogs, or medium in which bullfrog pituitary cells were cultured, yielded dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curve. Bullfrog prolactin, growth hormone, luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, and alpha-subunit derived from glycoprotein hormones did not react in this assay. Immunoassayable TSH in the pituitary culture medium was confirmed to exist in the form of TSHbeta coupled with the alpha-subunit by an immunoprecipitation experiment using the TSHbeta antiserum and an alpha-subunit antiserum. TSH released from pituitary cells into the medium was also confirmed to possess a considerable activity in stimulating the release of thyroxine from the thyroid glands of larval bullfrogs in vitro.
    The effects of hypothalamic hormones such as mammalian gonadotropin-releasing hormone (mGnRH), ovine corticotropin-releasing hormone (oCRH), and thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) on the release of TSH by dispersed anterior pituitary cells of the bullfrog larvae and adults were also studied. CRH markedly stimulated the release of TSH from both adult and larval pituitary cells. Both TRH and GnRH moderately stimulated the release of TSH from adult pituitary cells but not from the larval cells. This is the first report on the development of an RIA for amphibian,TSH, which has provided the direct evidence that the release of TSH from the amphibian pituitary is enhanced by the hypothalamic releasing hormones such as CRH, TRH, and GnRH.

    Effects of bisphenol A (BPA) on embryonic and larval development were investigated. In Xenopus laevis blastulae treated with 2.5-3.0 x 10(-5) M BPA or with 10(-5) M 17beta estradiol (E-2), malformation of the head region, scoliosis (curved vertebrate), and suppression of organogenesis were observed. In addition, 10(-5)-10(-4) M BPA blocked tri-iodothyronine (T-3)-inducible resorption of the tail segments from premetamorphic (stage 52-54) larvae in vitro. When stage 52 tadpoles were immersed in 1.0-2.5 x 10(-5) M BPA, deceleration of both spontaneous and thyroxin (T-4)-induced metamorphic changes occurred. Furthermore, BPA suppressed thyroid hormone receptor (TR.) beta gene expression both in vivo and in vitro. Thus, we concluded that BPA at the concentrations examined affects both embryonic development and larval metamorphosis. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science (USA). All rights reserved.

     概要を見る

    Anuran amphibians, animals that spend a terrestrial life after metamorphosis, exhibit a marked development of hindlimbs during and after metamorphosis. In order to see whether changes occur in the muscle protein components in the course of postmetamorphic development, we subjected gastrocnemius muscle extracts from growing froglets to two-dimensional electrophoresis (2DE). As a result, we found two proteins to undergo a change in level. One spot, indicating a molecular mass of approximately 12 kDa and an isoelectric point (pI) of 5.0 first became detectable at 45 days after metamorphosis. Another spot, corresponding to a protein of 11 kDa and pI 4.8, was prominent until the former spot appeared. N-terminal amino acid sequence analysis and comparison of the spots with those of parvalbumin (PA) revealed that these two proteins were PAalpha and PAbeta. Northern blot analysis using PAalpha and PAbeta cDNAs as probes revealed that the PAbeta mRNA level declined whereas that of PAalpha mRNA rose as the frogs grew.

  • Occurrence of prohormone convertase-like substances in the neural complex cells of the ascidian Halocynthia roretzi

    GENERAL AND COMPARATIVE ENDOCRINOLOGY   131 ( 1 ) 32 - 37  2003年03月

     概要を見る

    Our previous study on the distribution of adrenocorticotropin (ACTH)-like substances in the neural complex (cerebral ganglion, dorsal strand, and neural gland) of an ascidian Halocynthia roretzi revealed that some of the cells in the cerebral ganglion and the cells scattered along the dorsal strand were immunopositive with antiserum against ACTH. In order to ascertain whether these cells are equipped with prohormone convertases, we performed immunohistochemical studies on the neural complex by using antisera against PC1 and PC2. A considerable number of cells around the dorsal strand and a few cells in the neural ganglion were immunopositive with PC1 and/or PC2 antibodies. Immunoelectron microscopic study demonstrated that some granulated cells situated in the cerebral ganglion and along the dorsal strand contained PC1- or PC2-like substances within their secretory granules. Western blot analysis revealed the presence of 66-kDa PC1-like and 70-kDa PC2-like substances in the neural complex. Moreover, immunostaining of consecutive sections showed that the majority of the cells containing PC1- and/or PC2-like substances corresponded to the cells immunoreactive with antisera against ACTH and CLIP but not to those immunoreactive with an antiserum against PRL. Cells belonging to the neural gland neither contained electron-dense granules nor showed immunoreactivity with any antisera employed in this experiment. The possibility that some of the cells situated in the cerebral ganglion and along the dorsal strand are progenitors of vertebrate adenohypophyseal cells is discussed.

     概要を見る

    We examined developmental characteristics of the ATP-binding cassette transporter ABCA2 (or ABC2)-expressing cells in rat spinal cord and peripheral nerves. In adult spinal cord, ABCA2 immunoreactivity was detected in lysosome-like organelles of mature oligodendrocyte cell bodies, and a single specific band was detected by Western blot analysis. In postnatal developing spinal cord, ABCA2 immunolabeling was first detected in a small number of cells restricted to the ventral marginal area and the dorsal funiculus at birth (PO). ABCA2-positive cells were immunolabeled by O4, a marker for late progenitor and immature oligodendrocytes. At the same time, myelin basic protein was apparent in the same restricted regions. The number of ABCA2 and O4 co-immunolabeled cells increased quickly in both dorsal and ventral regions from P2 and reached a peak at P8. After transient expression from PO to P8, O4 labeling in white matter tracts decreased and disappeared. In contrast, ABCA2-positive oligodendrocytes persisted in gray and white matter throughout the spinal cord into adulthood. These data suggest a role for the ABCA2 transporter in maturation of oligodendrocyte lineage cells and the onset of myelination in the central nervous system. In addition, ABCA2 immunoreactivity was detected in the ciliated region of the ependyma in the central canal from early postnatal development. ABCA2 immunoreactivity was also detected in the Schwann cell lineage in developing spinal nerves and in adult trigeminal and sciatic nerves. ABCA2 was also expressed in numerous undetermined cells distributed in para-nerve connective tissues and nerve sheaths throughout early postnatal development. These data indicate multiple levels of involvement for ABCA2 in nervous system development especially with strong evidence for a role in myelination. (C) 2002 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

    Classically, it has been widely accepted that epithelial hypophysis develops from the stomodeal ectoderm. This notion was based on purely morphological observation of normal specimens. Recently, evidence is being accumulated that indicates another lineage for the developmental origin of adenohypophysis. This minireview focuses on several series of experimental works that have demonstrated a neuroectodermal origin of the hypophysis in vertebrates from amphibians to mammals. Phylogenetic consideration of the pituitary-like structures of prechordal animals is also presented. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science (USA).

    In this paper, the effects of an estrogenic compound, 4-nonyl-phenol (NP), on the amphibians Rana esculenta and Triturus carnifex are described together with those on sexual differentiation in Xenopus laevis. NP increased plasma vitellogenin in male frogs and newts in a dose-related manner; moreover, inhibitory effects on gonadotropin and prolactin (PRL) secretion by pituitary were found together with an elevation of plasma androgens. NP treatment also caused a remarkable increase in number of prolactin-immunolabeled cells, suggesting that xenoestrogen might induce, at least in the newt pituitary, a PRL accumulation possibly due to a reduction of the hormone release. In addition, both NP and bisphenol A caused feminization by increasing the percentage of female phenotypes in X. laevis, and the in vivo effects were more pronounced than those of estradiol-17beta.

     概要を見る

    The coexistence of prolactin (PRL) and growth hormone (GPI) was previously demonstrated in newly hatched bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) tadpoles, whereas in adult bullfrogs, there were no cells containing both PRL and GH. However, a cell blot assay with enzymatically dispersed adult pituitary cells demonstrated the existence of cells secreting both PRL and GH. The number of cells secreting both PRL and GH was reduced by a protein synthesis inhibitor, cycloheximide, but not by an RNA synthesis inhibitor, actinomycin D. In situ hybridization and immunostaining of intact pituitary glands revealed the existence of GH mRNA in some of the PRL-immunoreactive cells and of PRL mRNA in some of the GH-immunoreactive cells. We propose that dispersion of the pituitary cells triggered the translation of GH mRNA in the PRL cells and/or of PRL mRNA in the GH cells. (C) 2001 Academic Press.

    A partial prolactin (PRL) cDNA was specifically PCR amplified from a cDNA library constructed from pituitary mRNAs of the newt (Cynops pyrrhogaster) and cloned into plasmid vectors. One clone thus obtained contained a 739-bp insert encoding the C-terminal amino acid sequence of the mature hormone molecule. Using this clone as a probe, the full-length newt PRL cDNA was screened from the cDNA library. The PRL cDNA clone thus obtained consisted of 1024 bp encoding the entire sequence of the mature PRL molecule in addition to its signal peptide. The amino acid sequence of newt PRL deduced from its nucleotide sequence showed higher homologies with those PRL sequences of tetrapod animals than with those of teleosts. Northern blot analysis revealed the newt PRL mRNA size to be approximately 1 kb. In situ hybridization using the newt PRL cDNA as a probe revealed that the pituitary region expressing PRL mRNA corresponded to that immunoreactive with antiserum against PRL. PRL mRNA levels in the pituitary of newts subjected to room and low temperatures were determined by Northern analysis employing the PRL cDNA as a probe. PRL mRNA levels were significantly higher in the pituitaries of newts subjected to 10 degrees than in those of newts kept at 23 degrees. Likewise, immunoassayable plasma PRL levels were higher in animals subjected to 10 degrees than in those kept at 23 degrees. (C) 2001 Academic Press.

  • Effects of the two somatostatin variants somatostatin-14 and [Pro(2),Met(13)]somatostatin-14 on receptor binding, adenylyl cyclase activity and growth hormone release from the frog pituitary

    L Jeandel, A Okuno, T Kobayashi, S Kikuyama, H Tostivint, Lihrmann, I, N Chartrel, JM Conlon, A Fournier, MC Tonon, H Vaudry

    JOURNAL OF NEUROENDOCRINOLOGY   10 ( 3 ) 187 - 192  1998年03月

     概要を見る

    Two isoforms of somatostatin from frog brain have been recently characterized, namely somatostatin-14 (SS1) and [Pro(2), Met(13)]somatostatin-14 (SS2). The genes encoding for the precursors of these two somatostatin variants are expressed in hypothalamic nuclei involved in the control of the frog pituitary. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of SS1 and SS2 on adenohypophysial cells. Autoradiographic studies using [I-125-Tyr(o), D-Trp(8)] SS1 as a radioligand revealed that somatostatin binding sites are evenly distributed in the frog pars distalis. The SS2 variant was significantly (P < 0.01) more potent than SS1 in competing with the radioligand (IC50=1.2+/-0.2 and 5.6+/-0.6 nM, respectively). Both SS1 and SS2 induced a modest but significant reduction in cAMP formation in dispersed distal robe cells but did not affect spontaneous growth hormone (GH) release. Synthetic human GRF (hGRF) induced a significant increase in cAMP accumulation and GH release in this system. Both SS1 and SS2 inhibited the stimulatory effects of hGRF on cAMP formation and GH secretion. These data show that the SS1 and SS2 variants can regulate adenohypophysial functions. The fact that GH cells are exclusively located in the dorsal area of the frog adenohypophysis, while somatostatin receptors are present throughout the pars distalis, indicates that the two somatostatin isoforms may control the secretion of pituitary hormones additional to GH in amphibians.

  • Gonadotropins and reproductive function in the anuran amphibian, Rana esculenta

    A. M. Polzonetti-Magni, G. Mosconi, O. Carnevali, K. Yamamoto, Y. Hanaoka, S. Kikuyama

    Biology of Reproduction   58 ( 1 ) 88 - 93  1998年01月

     概要を見る

    In this study, the measurement both of peripheral gonadotropins (FSH and LH) and of sex steroids in male and female wild anuran, Rana esculenta, was performed during the annual reproductive cycle
    moreover, the role of gonadotropins in the vitellogenic process and in ovarian steroidogenesis was investigated through in vitro experiments. LH plasma changes in males showed high values during autumn-winter months and during the mating period, when high androgen levels were found. Conversely, for the first time in male vertebrates, a clear correspondence between plasma FSH and estradiol-17β (E2) was shown. In females, FSH peak values were found at the beginning of the mating period in parallel with those of plasma vitellogenin (VTG) and E2
    in contrast, high LH levels went together with ovarian weight (gonadosomatic index), which is considered a good marker for the plasma sequestration of VTG by growing oocytes. The in vivo results are corroborated by in vitro studies showing the direct effects of both FSH and LH in inducing hepatic VTG synthesis and release in the culture media. Lastly, although it is not yet known whether or not FSH and LH have separate functions in amphibians, it was clearly shown that they induce ovarian steroid production. These results are discussed in terms of the high seasonality previously demonstrated in this wild frog.

    イモリ雄は求愛行動の開始に先立って雌の総排泄口に鼻先を近づける行動をみせる。これは雌が生殖可能かどうかを判定するためであると推測されている。我々は雌が放出している化学物質によって判定していると想定して、その物質の単離同定を目指した。繁殖期の雌の卵管の抽出物を含むスポンジブロックは雌を有意にひきつける。この抽出物をタンパク分解酵素で処理すると活性を失う。抽出物を分子ふるいにかけると分子量5000以下の画分に活性がみとめられた。したがって活性物質はペプチドであると考えられ、種々のカラムクロマトグラフィーにより活性物質の単離を試み、現在までにアミノ酸3残基よりなる活性ペプチドを得た。このペプチドの抗体を作製し、免疫組織学的に同物質の局在をしらべたところ、総排泄口に近い卵管壁が免疫陽性であることがわかった。同物質をコードするcDNAのクローニングを試みたが、アミノ酸3残基より得られる塩基配列情報では不十分であることがわかった。一方、雄イモリの放出ソデフリン前駆体のcDNAクローンの解析の結果、ソデフリンをコードするmRNAはすべての地方のすべての個体の肛門部腹腺で発現しているが、奈良地方のイモリに特異的にソデフリンとアミノ酸1残基異なるフェロモン様物質を発現していることを発見した。この物質を単離するとともに、同物質を合成し、活性をしらべたところ、奈良産の雌にのみ強い誘引活性を示し、新潟や千葉産イモリの雌には活性を示さないことがわかった。このソデフリンバリアントをアオニリンと名づけた。

     我々は先に広島大学グループとの共同研究により、ウシガエル視床下部より4種のRFアミドペプチド群を単離・同定・生理活性の解析を行った(Koda et al., 2000, Endocrinology 143, 411-419; Sawada et al., 2002, J. Endocrinol. 174, 395-402)が、同様な方法でイモリ脳より上記ウシガエルのものに似たアミノ酸配列を有するペプチドを得、主としてプロラクチン、生長ホルモンの放出活性に焦点をあてて生理活性の解析を行った結果両ホルモンの放出を促進するペプチド、生長ホルモンの放出のみを促進するペプチドの存在を確認した。 一方我々はこれまで困難を極めていた両生類甲状腺刺激ホルモンの放射免疫測定法の開発に成功した。それを用いて、これまで知られている神経ペプチド(哺乳類由来のものも含む)の甲状腺刺激ホルモン放出促進・抑制効果についてのスクリーニングを行った。その結果、LHRHとTRHには幼生下垂体に対しては効果がなく、成体下垂体には弱い放出活性を示すこと、CRF(ヒツジ由来)には幼生、成体下垂体に対して強い放出活性を示すことがわかった。そこでウシガエルCRFをコードするcDNAのクローニングを行い、それから推定されるウシガエルCRFのアミノ酸配列にしたがってペプチドを合成した。それを用いて活性を測定したところ、ヒツジ由来のものと同等の活性をウシガエルCRFに認めた。またCRFによる甲状腺刺激ホルモン放出活性は甲状腺ホルモンによって抑制を受けることも確認された。なお、CRF以外のペプチドでは、アミノ酸配列がCRFに似ているsauvagineに放出活性がみとめられた。更にsomatostatinには抑制作用があること、カエルで生長ホルモン放出活性があることが知られているPACAPに甲状腺刺激ホルモン放出活性があることがわかった。これらの結果から甲状腺刺激ホルモンは多種類のペプチドにより調節されており、はじめに哺乳動物で名付けられたペプチドの名称が必ずしもあてはまらないことが明らかになった。 一方我々はイモリ視床下部のプロラクチン受容体発現部位の解析中に、下垂体後葉ホルモン含有神経にプロラクチン受容体が発現していることを発見した。現在プロラクチンの後葉ホルモン放出調節の可能性を検討している。

  • 脳内ペプチドの下垂体および正中隆起部レベルにおける作用

    2001年  

     概要を見る

    研究期間の2年間で以下の成果を得た。1)我々はカエル脳よりC末端にPhe-Met-Arg-Phe-NH2の配列を有するアミノ酸12残基からなる新しいペプチドを単離した。その抗体を作製し、免疫組織学的に局在をしらべたところ正中隆起部に結末を有することからこのペプチドが下垂体機能を調節している可能性が示唆された。このペプチドを下垂体培養系に添加し、各種下垂体ホルモンの放出をしらべたところ、成長ホルモン放出を特異的に促進することを見い出した。このペプチドは試験管内でだけでなく、動物に静脈注射しても活性を示すことも確かめた。2)哺乳類の胃で発見されたグレリン(Ghrelin)は成長ホルモン放出を促進する事が知られているが、我々はカエル胃より2種のグレリン相当物質を単離した。この物質は28および29アミノ酸残基からなり、成長ホルモンの他にプロラクチンの放出を促進することを明らかにした。この物質の前駆体遺伝子は胃、腸、膵臓、精巣で発現しており、一般循環によって下垂体に達して作用すると考えられる。3)カエル脳下垂体の甲状腺刺激ホルモン含有細胞にアクチビン/インヒビンのβBサブユニット免疫陽性物質の存在を認めた。そこでアクチビンBやインヒビンBが下垂体ホルモンの放出を傍分泌的に調節している可能性をさぐるためアクチビンBおよびインヒビンBの各種下垂体ホルモンの放出におよぼす影響をしらべた。アクチビンBは生殖腺刺激ホルモンの放出を促進したが、インヒビンBは単独では効果を示さず、アクチビンBによる生殖腺ホルモンの放出活性上昇を抑制することを確かめた。4)我々は海外共同研究者との研究によりカエル脳より成長ホルモン放出ホルモン(GHRH)およびPACAPの単離、同定、その前駆体遺伝子のクローニングおよび生理活性をしらべた。生理活性に関しては両者に成長ホルモン放出活性が認められた。魚類ではPACAPのみに、哺乳類ではGHRHのみに活性があることを考えると、ホルモン分子(および受容体)の進化という観点から興味ある発見である。

  • フェロモンおよびホルモンによる生殖行動の調節

    1999年   石居 進, 小口 敦子

     概要を見る

     有尾両性類の生殖行動には、化学情報伝達物質として外分泌物質(フェロモン)が重要な役割を担っている。我々は、すでに雄アカハライモリの腹腺より雌誘引フェロモン(ソデフリン)を単離・同定しているが、この物質は同属異種のシリケンイモリには効果がない。シリケンイモリは別の物質をフェロモンとして用いていると推測し、ソデフリンに相当する物質を、遺伝子及びペプチド面から解析を進めた。その結果、すでに得られているソデフリン前駆体cDNAに相当するcDNAが得られ、それにソデフリンとアミノ酸2残基がいれかわったペプチドがコードされていることがわかった。更に、シリケンイモリの腹腺からこのペプチドの単離を逆相HPLCを用いて進め、アミノ酸10残基よりなるペプチドを得た。生物活性を調べた結果、この物質(単離した物質及び合成品ともに)はシリケンイモリの雌に対して強い誘引活性を持つがアカハライモリに対しては活性を示さないことがわかり、種特異性があることが証明された。同物質はN末端のアミノ酸3残基の略号SILとソデフリンの末尾efrinとあわせてシリフリン(silefrin)と名付けられた。更に、ソデフリン及びシリフリン前駆体cDNAをプローブとして用いて前駆体mRNAの発現及び2つのフェロモンの放射免疫測定法による腹腺含量の測定を可能にし、これらを指標にこの2つのフェロモンの合成がいかなるホルモンによって促進されるかを調べた。その結果、プロラクチンと雄性ホルモンの組み合わせで顕著に両フェロモンの合成が促進されることを明らかにした。尚、フェロモンの放出はアルギニンヴァソトシンにより促されること、このホルモンはV1受容体を介して作用することも明らかにした。

     上記研究課題に関する国際会議を実現させるために、代表者および分担者は主たる関連国際誌上で公表されている研究内容、レベルの把握を心掛け、また国内分担者は研究期間中に開催された関連がありそうな国内外の約40回に渡る会議・シンポジウムに参加し情報の収集につとめるとともに国外研究者との交流をはかった。 特に1997年に早稲田大学で行った脊椎動物のホルモンおよび神経ペプチドの分子祖先に関する会議では、多数の関連研究者の出席のもと活発な意見の交換を行った。一連の活動を通じて、脳および下垂体のほかに嗅覚系を会議のテーマとして加えることが必要であるという結論に達した。その理由としては、生体内でホルモンのほかにフェロモンが化学情報伝達に関与していること、特にフェロモン受容器官としての鋤鼻器官がヒトに存在するかという問題に注目が集まっており、フェロモン関連分野の研究の発展は目覚ましいものがあること、脳のある種の神経ペプチド産生細胞は嗅上皮由来であり、下垂体と嗅覚系は発生学上近縁の細胞群より分化すること、などが挙げられる。そこで国内の鋤鼻研究会の主たるメンバーとも意見の交換を行い、脳と下垂体に加えて嗅覚系を入れて「国際会議 脳・鼻・下垂体」を2000年に早稲田大学で開催することに決定した。

  • 生殖における嗅覚系の役割

    1997年   石居 進, 高橋 則行

     概要を見る

    イモリより単離した雌誘引フェロモン(ソデフリン)は、鼻腔をふさいだ動物や嗅球と嗅上皮間を遮断した動物には無効であることを確認したうえで、このフェロモンが嗅上皮のどの部分で感知するかを調べた。その結果、フェロモンによって鼻腔側室部の嗅上皮でもっとも強い嗅電図記録が得られることがわかった。この部分は有尾目では原始的鋤鼻器官と見做されている部分であり、哺乳類では鋤鼻器官がフェロモンの受容部位である。イモリでこの器官の上皮を形態学的に調べたところ、哺乳類鋤鼻器官の上皮細胞と同様に微絨毛のみをそなえていた。この部分にDiIを注入し、中枢のどこに神経が投射しているかを調べた結果、主として副嗅球に投射していることがわかった。一方、ソデフリンの一次構造から推定される塩基配列をもとに、ソデフリンのcDNAノクローニングを試みたところ、1360bpからなるcDNAが得られ、そのうち570塩基がソデフリン前駆体をコードしていることがわかり、ソデフリン分子は前駆体のC末端に存在することがわかった。研究成果の発表:Kikuyama, S., Toyoda, F., Iwata, T., Umezawa, K., Takahashi, N., Matsukawa, H. and Miura, S. 1998: Sodefrin, A novel peptide pheromone in the newt cloacal gland.

  • 有尾両生類の性フェロモンに関する研究

    1995年   石居 進, 小室 輝昌

     概要を見る

    性的に成熟した雄のアカハライモリを飼育している水に,性的に成熟した雌イモリに限ってひきつけられることがわかった。腹部肛門腺を切除された雄イモリの飼育水には雌誘引活性がみられない。そこで,活性物質は肛門腺でつくられるか,そこを経由して水中に放出されると考え,肛門腺より活性物質の単離を試みた。活性物質は,ゲル濾過カラムクロマトグラフィーやプロナーゼ消化などの結果から,分子量の比較的小さいペプチドであることが,予想され,最終的には逆相カラムクロマトグラフィーによって単離することができた。アミノ酸組成や配列の解析,分子量の測定などから,NおよびC末端ともに修飾されていない,アミノ酸10残基よりなるペプチドであることが判明した。これまでに知られているどのペプチドにも該当しないことから,これをソデフリンと命名した。ソデフリンは両生類で同定されたはじめてのフェロモンであり,脊髄動物ではじめてのペプチドフェロモンである。化学合成したソデフリンは生体より得られたものと同様の活性を有すること,ソデフリン抗体を用いてソデフリンの存在部位をしらべたところ肛門腺上皮細胞中の分泌果粒中に局在していること,などもわかった。雌イモリの鼻と脳との間の連絡を外科的に断ったりするとソデフリンの効果がみられない。従ってソデフリンは鼻器官を介して作用するものと考えられた。更にソデフリンを他種のイモリ(シリケンイモリ)に作用させても無効であり,シリケンイモリの肛門腺水抽出物はシリケンイモリ雌のみをひきつけ,アカハライモリ雌をひきつけない。このことからソデフリンは種特異性を有し,おそらく同属・異種のシリケンイモリにはソデフリンとは異なる雌誘引物質がその肛門腺に存在していることが示唆された。
