Abstract : OBJECTIVES: Diabetic cystopathy (DC) is recognized as one of the major etiologies of underactive bladder (UAB)/detrusor underactivity (DU). Although DC was first reported about three decades ago, there is a distinct lack of effective pharmacological management methods for UAB/DU due to DC with a robust certainty of evidence. In this study, we investigated whether EP2 and EP3 receptors are promising targets of pharmacological management of UAB/DU due to DC. METHODS: We used streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic Sprague-Dawley rats with postvoid residual urine (PVR) greater than 0.1 mL. Sixteen weeks after induction of diabetes, we performed awake single cystometry after oral administration of the vehicle, an alpha-blocker (tamsulosin [TAM], 0.1 and 0.3 mg/kg), a cholinesterase inhibitor (distigmine [DIS], 0.3 and 1.0 mg/kg), or an EP2/3 dual agonist (ONO-8055, 0.01 and 0.03 mg/kg). We compared cystometric parameters after administration of the vehicle and drugs using a paired t test. P < .05 was considered to be statistically significant. RESULTS: Compared with the vehicle, TAM significantly decreased maximum intravesical pressure during voiding (Pmax), while DIS significantly increased it. However, neither drug significantly affected PVR or the residual urine rate (RUR). On the other hand, ONO-8055 significantly decreased PVR and tended to decrease RUR, although it did not significantly affect Pmax. CONCLUSION: The present study was unable to demonstrate that stimulation of EP2 and EP3 receptors caused major improvements in UAB/DU due to DC. However, this equivocal result could arise from inherent limitations of the STZ-induced diabetic rat as a UAB/DU model.

Abstract : We have developed an in silico method of selection of human full-length cDNAs encoding secretion or membrane proteins from oligo-capped cDNA libraries. Fullness rates were increased to about 80% by combination of the oligo-capping method and ATGpr, software for prediction of translation start point and the coding potential. Then, using 5'-end single-pass sequences, cDNAs having the signal sequence were selected by PSORT ('signal sequence trap'). We also applied 'secretion or membrane protein-related keyword trap' based on the result of BLAST search against the SWISS-PROT database for the cDNAs which could not be selected by PSORT. Using the above procedures, 789 cDNAs were primarily selected and subjected to full-length sequencing, and 334 of these cDNAs were finally selected as novel. Most of the cDNAs (295 cDNAs: 88.3%) were predicted to encode secretion or membrane proteins. In particular, 165(80.5%) of the 205 cDNAs selected by PSORT were predicted to have signal sequences, while 70 (54.2%) of the 129 cDNAs selected by 'keyword trap' preserved the secretion or membrane protein-related keywords. Many important cDNAs were obtained, including transporters, receptors, and ligands, involved in significant cellular functions. Thus, an efficient method of selecting secretion or membrane protein-encoding cDNAs was developed by combining the above four procedures.

Abstract : As a base for human transcriptome and functional genomics, we created the "full-length long Japan" (FLJ) collection of sequenced human cDNAs. We determined the entire sequence of 21,243 selected clones and found that 14,490 cDNAs (10,897 clusters) were unique to the FLJ collection. About half of them (5,416) seemed to be protein-coding. Of those, 1,999 clusters had not been predicted by computational methods. The distribution of GC content of nonpredicted cDNAs had a peak at approximately 58% compared with a peak at approximately 42%for predicted cDNAs. Thus, there seems to be a slight bias against GC-rich transcripts in current gene prediction procedures. The rest of the cDNAs unique to the FLJ collection (5,481) contained no obvious open reading frames (ORFs) and thus are candidate noncoding RNAs. About one-fourth of them (1,378) showed a clear pattern of splicing. The distribution of GC content of noncoding cDNAs was narrow and had a peak at approximately 42%, relatively low compared with that of protein-coding cDNAs.
