Abstract : RE1-silencing transcription factor (REST), also known as NRSF (neuron-restrictive silencer factor), is a well-known transcriptional repressor of neural genes. Rest null mice have embryonic lethality which prevents further investigations of the functions of the Rest gene in vivo. We studied neonatal but not embryonic lethality that was characterized by gastrointestinal tract dilation in the neural crest cell (NCC)-specific Rest conditional knockout (CKO) mice. While no histological abnormalities except the thinning of the digestive tract as a consequence of the gas accumulation were found in the digestive tract of the mutant mice, they do not have proper gastric retention after oral dye administration and the reduction of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity in NCC-derived myenteric plexus in the stomach was detected. High CO2 concentration in the dilated digestive tract of the Rest CKO mice indicates a failure of gut function by underdeveloped cholinergic transmission in the enteric nervous system. The observed gastrointestinal distension phenotype provides a model for understanding the genetic and molecular basis of NCC defects in humans.

Abstract : BACKGROUND: Acotiamide is a selective acetylcholinesterase inhibitor and enhances the actions of cholinergic neurons localized in the stomach. METHODS: The present two studies were conducted to examine the optimal dosage of acotiamide hydrochloride (Z-338) in patients with functional dyspepsia (FD) in Japan. KEY RESULTS: The improvement rate of 'subjects global assessment of overall treatment efficacy (OTE)' at the final evaluation was approximately 10% higher in the acotiamide 100 mg group than that in the placebo group with good reproducibility though there was no significant differences at primary endpoint. The elimination rate of postprandial fullness in the acotiamide 100 mg group was significantly higher compared to placebo group. In addition, the post hoc analysis showed that in patients whose main complaints are meal-related symptoms such as postprandial fullness, upper abdominal bloating and/or early satiety, the improvement rate of 'OTE' at final evaluation in acotiamide 100 mg group was significantly superior to that in the placebo group. CONCLUSIONS & INFERENCES: These results suggest that acotiamide possesses efficacy on FD and more specifically its meal-related symptoms of FD.

Abstract : The rice species Oryza sativa is considered to be a model plant because of its small genome size, extensive genetic map, relative ease of transformation and synteny with other cereal crops. Here we report the essentially complete sequence of chromosome 1, the longest chromosome in the rice genome. We summarize characteristics of the chromosome structure and the biological insight gained from the sequence. The analysis of 43.3 megabases (Mb) of non-overlapping sequence reveals 6,756 protein coding genes, of which 3,161 show homology to proteins of Arabidopsis thaliana, another model plant. About 30% (2,073) of the genes have been functionally categorized. Rice chromosome 1 is (G + C)-rich, especially in its coding regions, and is characterized by several gene families that are dispersed or arranged in tandem repeats. Comparison with a draft sequence indicates the importance of a high-quality finished sequence.

Title : Neural grafting to ischemic CA1 lesions in the rat hippocampus: an autoradiographic study - Aoki_1993_Neurosci_56_345

Abstract : Fetal hippocampal neurons were stereotaxically transplanted to five-day-old ischemic CA1 lesions in adult rat hippocampi. The recipient brains were examined 14 or 100 days later. The grafts survived well, and transplanted cells usually formed clusters in the host CA1 subfield. In vitro receptor autoradiography was employed to map the following receptors, the ligands indicated in parentheses being used for labeling: muscarinic cholinergic ([3H]quinuclidinyl benzilate), adenosine A1 ([3H]cyclohexyladenosine), kainate ([3H]kainic acid), spirodecanone ([3H]spiperone), opioid ([3H]naloxone), and GABAA ([3H]muscimol). The receptor autoradiographic technique showed significant binding of the six ligands in all hippocampal grafts two weeks after transplantation. One hundred days following transplantation, almost all receptors, especially muscarinic cholinergic, adenosine A1 and opioid receptor bindings in grafts, had significantly increased compared to bindings two weeks after transplantation. At this time, kainate and muscarinic cholinergic receptors in grafts had increased up to the near normal level of the CA1 in the hippocampus. Interestingly, adenosine A1 receptors in the grafted side had significantly increased not only in the CA1 but also in the stratum oriens of the CA3 compared with that in the non-grafted side. The increase of [3H]quinuclidinyl benzilate binding corresponded well with the innervation of acetylcholinesterase-positive fibers at 100 days after grafting. These results demonstrate that the transplanted neurons, which showed both pre- and post-synaptic autoradiographic markers in the ischemic CA1 lesions, are able to develop their properties and express the nature of normal hippocampal neurons.
