Abstract : Although NMDA receptor antagonist memantine is considered to be better tolerated than cholinesterase inhibitors on treating Alzheimer's disease, several types of cardiovascular adverse events have been associated with memantine treatment, including hypertension, myocardial infarction, severe bradycardia and QT-interval prolongation. In order to clarify how memantine induces these cardiovascular adverse events, we assessed its electropharmacological effects using the halothane-anesthetized dogs (n = 4). Memantine hydrochloride was intravenously administered in doses of 0.01, 0.1 and 1 mg/kg over 10 min, providing subtherapeutic, clinically-relevant and supratherapeutic concentrations, respectively. The low to high doses increased the mean blood pressure and left ventricular contraction and enhanced the atrioventricular nodal conduction, suggesting an increase of sympathicotonic output from the central nervous system similarly to donepezil, which might induce myocardial ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease. Meanwhile, the high dose suppressed the intra-atrial conduction and the low to high doses inhibited the intra-ventricular conduction, indicating potential to induce severe bradycardic adverse event by advanced cardiac conduction block in susceptible patients. Memantine alone did not induce repolarization delay, indicating lack of risk for inducing torsade de pointes. Thus, these in vivo experimental findings may provide basic information to better understand the clinically observed adverse events of memantine.

Abstract : Donepezil, an inhibitor for acetylcholinesterase used for patients with Alzheimer's disease, has been shown to inhibit I(Kr), occasionally inducing torsade de pointes. In order to analyze the causal relationship between donepezil treatment and onset of lethal arrhythmias, we initially assessed electropharmacological effects of donepezil hydrochloride of 0.01, 0.1, and 1 mg/kg, i.v. over 10 min using the halothane-anesthetized intact dogs (n = 4), possibly providing subtherapeutic to supratherapeutic plasma concentrations. Although the low or middle dose did not exert any effect, the high dose transiently increased the ventricular refractoriness along with modest prolongation of the late repolarization period, indicating potential I(Kr) inhibitory action in vivo. Moreover, the high dose induced the positive chronotropic, inotropic, and dromotropic actions along with the pressor effect and prolongation of early repolarization period, suggesting sympathicotonic condition in the central nervous system. Next, we examined proarrhythmic effects of donepezil hydrochloride of 0.1 and 1 mg/kg, i.v. over 10 min using the conscious chronic atrioventricular block dogs (n = 4). Although the low dose hardly affected the cardiovascular variables, the high dose increased the atrial and ventricular rate without significantly altering the repolarization period, possibly reflecting sympathicotonic condition. Importantly, the high dose induced non-sustained ventricular tachycardia in half of the animals. Thus, donepezil by itself did not induce torsade de pointes in vivo, which suggests that donepezil-induced sympathicotonic condition may induce Ca(2+) overload, triggering the ventricular arrhythmias, but might indirectly attenuate its I(Kr) inhibitory action, preventing excessive repolarization delay.

Abstract : This study described the genetic map of tandem genes (est1 and est119) encoding cutinase-type polyesterases in Thermobifida alba AHK119 and comparison of wild type and mutant enzymes of Est1 and Est119. Two genes were independently and constitutively expressed. The activity of Est1 was higher by approximately 1.6-1.7-fold than that of Est119 towards p-nitrophenyl butyrate, although both enzymes shared 95% sequence identity and 98% similarity and possessed similar 3D structures except that several amino acids in the probable substrate-docking loops were different from each other. Calcium ion enhanced the activity and the thermostability of both enzymes. Based on conserved sequences among Thermobifida cutinases, valine, proline and lysine were introduced into Est1 at Ala68, Thr253 and Met256, respectively. Among wild and mutant enzymes of Est119 and Est1, Est1 (A68V/T253P) possessed three prolines in the substrate-docking loops and displayed the highest thermostability that spotlighted the important effect of proline numbers in the loops. Est1 (A68V/T253P) was stable for 1 h below 60 degrees C and even at 65 degrees C, more than 70% and 50% activities were maintained after 30 and 60 min, respectively. Est1 (A68V/T253P) degraded various aliphatic and aliphatic-co-aromatic polyesters and hydrophilized an amorphous PET film. The enzyme hydrolyzed a PET trimer model compound, indicating its specificity towards an ester bond between terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol.

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.

Title : Roles of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) depolymerase and 3HB-oligomer hydrolase in bacterial PHB metabolism - Sugiyama_2004_Curr.Microbiol_48_424
Author(s) : Sugiyama A , Kobayashi T , Shiraki M , Saito T
Ref : Curr Microbiol , 48 :424 , 2004
Abstract : Many poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB)-degrading enzymes have been studied. But biological roles of 3HB-oligomer hydrolases (3HBOHs) and how PHB depolymerases (PHBDPs) and 3HBOHs cooperate in PHB metabolism are not fully elucidated. In this study, several PHBDPs and 3HBOHs from three types of bacteria were purified, and their substrate specificity, kinetic properties, and degradation products were investigated. From the results, PHBDP and 3HBOH seemed to play a role in PHB metabolism in three types of bacteria, as follows: (A) In Ralstonia pickettii T1, an extracellular PHBDP degrades extracellular PHB to various-sized 3HB-oligomers, which an extracellular 3HBOH hydrolyzes to 3HB-monomers. (B) In Acidovorax sp. SA1, an extracellular PHBDP hydrolyzes extracellular PHB to small 3HB-oligomers (dimer and trimer), which an intracellular 3HBOH efficiently degrades to 3HB in the cell. (C) In Ralstonia eutropha H16, an intracellular 3HBOH helps in the degradation of intracellular PHB inclusions by PHBDP.

Title : Purification and properties of an intracellular 3-hydroxybutyrate-oligomer hydrolase (PhaZ2) in Ralstonia eutropha H16 and its identification as a novel intracellular poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) depolymerase - Kobayashi_2003_J.Bacteriol_185_3485

Abstract : An intracellular 3-hydroxybutyrate (3HB)-oligomer hydrolase (PhaZ2(Reu)) of Ralstonia eutropha was purified from Escherichia coli harboring a plasmid containing phaZ2(Reu). The purified enzyme hydrolyzed linear and cyclic 3HB-oligomers. Although it did not degrade crystalline poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB), the purified enzyme degraded artificial amorphous PHB at a rate similar to that of the previously identified intracellular PHB (iPHB) depolymerase (PhaZ1(Reu)). The enzyme appeared to be an endo-type hydrolase, since it actively hydrolyzed cyclic 3HB-oligomers. However, it degraded various linear 3HB-oligomers and amorphous PHB in the fashion of an exo-type hydrolase, releasing one monomer unit at a time. PhaZ2 was found to bind to PHB inclusion bodies and as a soluble enzyme to cell-free supernatant fractions in R. eutropha; in contrast, PhaZ1 bound exclusively to the inclusion bodies. When R. eutropha H16 was cultivated in a nutrient-rich medium, the transient deposition of PHB was observed: the content of PHB was maximized in the log growth phase (12 h, ca. 14% PHB of dry cell weight) and decreased to a very low level in the stationary phase (ca. 1% of dry cell weight). In each phaZ1-null mutant and phaZ2-null mutant, the PHB content in the cell increased to ca. 5% in the stationary phase. A double mutant lacking both phaZ1 and phaZ2 showed increased PHB content in the log phase (ca. 20%) and also an elevated PHB level (ca. 8%) in the stationary phase. These results indicate that PhaZ2 is a novel iPHB depolymerase, which participates in the mobilization of PHB in R. eutropha along with PhaZ1.

Abstract : We collected and completely sequenced 28,469 full-length complementary DNA clones from Oryza sativa L. ssp. japonica cv. Nipponbare. Through homology searches of publicly available sequence data, we assigned tentative protein functions to 21,596 clones (75.86%). Mapping of the cDNA clones to genomic DNA revealed that there are 19,000 to 20,500 transcription units in the rice genome. Protein informatics analysis against the InterPro database revealed the existence of proteins presented in rice but not in Arabidopsis. Sixty-four percent of our cDNAs are homologous to Arabidopsis proteins.

Abstract : The gene of an intracellular D(-)-3-hydroxybutyrate oligomer hydrolase (i3HBOH) was cloned and sequenced from a poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB)-degrading bacterium, Acidovorax sp. strain SA1. The i3HBOH gene has 876 nucleotides corresponding to the deduced sequence of 292 amino acids. In this amino acid sequence, the general lipase box sequence (G-X(1)-S-X(2)-G) was found, whose serine residue was determined to the active sites serine by site-directed mutagenesis. An i3HBOH was purified to electrophoretical homogeneity from SA1. The molecular mass of the purified enzyme was estimated to be 32 kDa by SDS-PAGE. The N-terminal amino acid sequence of the purified enzyme corresponded to the deduced N-terminal amino acid sequence in the cloned i3HBOH gene. This is the first cloning and sequencing of an intracellular D(-)-3-hydroxybutyrate oligomer hydrolase gene to date.

Abstract : To isolate genes preferentially expressed at early stages of fruits in eggplant (Solanum melongena L., var. Senryo No. 2), subtractive hybridization was used on cDNAs from pollinated fruits and poly(A)+RNA from unpollinated fruits at 3 days after anthesis. In this way, 8 cDNA clones were isolated from a cDNA library constructed from pollinated fruits at 3 days after anthesis, and were designated EEF13, 20, 22, 26, 38, 45, 48, and 53, respectively. Expression patterns of EEF genes in pollinated fruit were similar to those in 4-chlorophenoxyacetic acid (4-CPA)-treated fruit by Northern blot analyses. During development of pollinated and 4-CPA-treated fruit, the transcription patterns of EEF genes were classified into three types. EEF20 and EEF38 genes whose products are highly similar to histones, were expressed abundantly on the day of anthesis and continued to be expressed during the early stages of fruit development (Type 1). Transcription of five genes was at higher level from 2 to 4 days after anthesis (Type 2), and the encoded products of EEF22 and EEF26, showed high similarity with calreticulin and polyphenol oxidase, respectively. Another gene, EEF48 (Type 3), showed high and continuous expression from 2 to 20 days after anthesis and was almost restricted to fruits. Deduced amino acid sequence of EEF48 showed high similarity with a cell wall protein.

Abstract : To determine the properties of enzymes from bacteria that degrade polypropiolactone (PPL), we isolated 13 PPL-degrading bacteria from pond water, river water, and soil. Nine of these strains were identified as Acidovorax sp., three as Variovorax paradoxus, and one as Sphingomonas paucimobilis. All the isolates also degraded poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB). A PPL-degrading enzyme was purified to electrophoretical homogeneity from one of these bacteria, designated Acidovorax sp. TP4. The purified enzyme also degraded PHB. The molecular weight of the enzyme was estimated as about 50,000. The enzyme activity was inhibited by diisopropylfluorophosphate, dithiothreitol, and Triton X-100. The structural gene of the depolymerase was cloned in Escherichia coli. The nucleotide sequence of the cloned DNA fragment contained an open reading frame (1476 bp) specifying a protein with a deduced molecular weight of 50,961 (491 amino acids). The deduced overall sequence was very similar to that of a PHB depolymerase of Comamonas acidovorans YM1609. From these results it was concluded that the isolated PPL-degrading enzyme belongs to the class of PHB depolymerases. A conserved amino acid sequence, Gly-X1-Ser-X2-Gly (lipase box), was found at the N-terminal side of the amino acid sequence. Site-directed mutagenesis of the TP4 enzyme confirmed that 20Ser in the lipase box was essential for the enzyme activity. This is the first report of the isolation a PHB depolymerase from Acidovorax.
