Abstract : We report the complete genome sequences of eight Helicobacter pylori strains isolated from patients with gastrointestinal diseases in Okinawa, Japan. Whole-genome sequencing and DNA methylation detection were performed using the PacBio platform. De novo assembly determined a single, complete contig for each strain. Furthermore, methylation analysis identified virulence factor genotype-dependent motifs.

Abstract : The RIKEN Mouse Gene Encyclopaedia Project, a systematic approach to determining the full coding potential of the mouse genome, involves collection and sequencing of full-length complementary DNAs and physical mapping of the corresponding genes to the mouse genome. We organized an international functional annotation meeting (FANTOM) to annotate the first 21,076 cDNAs to be analysed in this project. Here we describe the first RIKEN clone collection, which is one of the largest described for any organism. Analysis of these cDNAs extends known gene families and identifies new ones.

Title : Regional differences in the response of the isolated sino-atrial node of the rabbit to vagal stimulation - Kodama_1996_J.Physiol_495_785

Abstract : 1. The effects of brief postganglionic vagal nerve stimulation on electrical activity in different regions of the rabbit sino-atrial node and surrounding atrial muscle were recorded. 2. At the centre of the node (the leading pacemaker site), the brief stimulation resulted in a large hyperpolarization followed by a depolarization and a shortening of the action potential. All effects were short lasting (time to 90% recovery of membrane potential, 0.8 s). 3. At other sites within the node and in the surrounding atrial muscle, although there was still a substantial action potential shortening, the hyperpolarization was smaller and the depolarization was small or absent. All effects were longer lasting (time to 90% recovery in atrial muscle, 11.4s). 4. The depolarization in the centre of the node was abolished by block of the hyperpolarization-activated current (i(f)) by Cs+ or zatebradine (UL-FS 49). It could, therefore, result from the activation of i(f) during the preceding hyperpolarization. 5. Block of acetylcholinesterase by eserine greatly slowed recovery from vagal stimulation at all sites, demonstrating that recovery is dependent on acetylcholinesterase. The longer lasting effects of vagal stimulation in atrial muscle, therefore, result from lower acetylcholinesterase activity. 6. Vagal stimulation resulted in a short lasting initial slowing of spontaneous action potentials followed by a long-lasting secondary slowing. Whereas the initial slowing coincided with the effects of vagal stimulation on the centre of the node, the secondary slowing coincided with the slower effects of vagal stimulation on the surrounding atrial muscle. The secondary slowing was reduced by 68 +/- 11% (n = 5) by cutting the atrial muscle away from the node. 7. It is concluded that the short-lasting initial slowing of spontaneous action potentials is the direct effect of vagal stimulation on the centre of the sino atrial node, whereas the secondary slowing is the result of the longer lasting effects of vagal stimulation on the surrounding atrial muscle and the electrotonic suppression of the node by the muscle.

Title : Ionic basis of the chronotropic effect of acetylcholine on the rabbit sinoatrial node - Boyett_1995_Cardiovasc.Res_29_867

Abstract : OBJECTIVE: The aim was to study the ionic basis of the chronotropic effects of bath applied acetylcholine and vagal stimulation on the rabbit sinoatrial node. METHODS: The chronotropic effect of bath applied acetylcholine was measured in single cells and small multicellular preparations from the rabbit sinoatrial node and the chronotropic effect of postganglionic vagal stimulation was measured in the intact sinoatrial node. The roles of the hyperpolarisation activated current, i(f), the acetylcholine activated potassium current, iK,ACh, and the L-type calcium current, iCa, were investigated by blocking the currents with 1-2 mM Cs+ or 10(-6) M UL-FS49, 0.2-1.0 mM Ba2+, and 6 x 10(-6) M nifedipine, respectively. RESULTS: Under control conditions, small multicellular preparations were approximately two orders of magnitude less sensitive to bath applied acetylcholine than single cells. However, after block of acetylcholinesterase by eserine in small multicellular preparations the sensitivities of the two types of preparation were approximately the same. Block of i(f) either had no discernible effect or increased the chronotropic effect of bath applied acetylcholine on single cells or small multicellular preparations, whereas partial block of iK,ACh reduced it substantially. Similarly, block of i(f) did not suppress the initial slowing of spontaneous action potentials by vagal stimulation, whereas partial block of iK,ACh reduced it. The hyperpolarisation of the arrested sinoatrial node in response to vagal stimulation was also substantially reduced by block of iK,ACh. Partial block of iCa caused large decreases in the action potential amplitude and maximum diastolic potential, but little decrease in the rate of spontaneous action potentials, and therefore did not mimic the effect of acetylcholine. CONCLUSIONS: The chronotropic effects of bath applied acetylcholine and vagal stimulation are not principally the result of a suppression of i(f) or iCa, whereas the activation of iK,ACh may play an important role.

Title : Peg1\/Mest imprinted gene on chromosome 6 identified by cDNA subtraction hybridization - Kaneko-Ishino_1995_Nat.Genet_11_52

Abstract : Parthenogenesis in the mouse is embryonic lethal partly because of imprinted genes that are expressed only from the paternal genome. In a systematic screen using subtraction hybridization between cDNAs from normal and parthenogenetic embryos, we initially identified two apparently novel imprinted genes, Peg1 and Peg3. Peg1 (paternally expressed gene 1) or Mest, the first imprinted gene found on the mouse chromosome 6, may contribute to the lethality of parthenogenones and of embryos with a maternal duplication for the proximal chromosome 6. Peg1/Mest is widely expressed in mesodermal tissues and belongs to the alpha/beta hydrolase fold family. A similar approach with androgenones can be used to identify imprinted genes that are expressed from the maternal genome only.

Title : Does the positive inotropic action of a novel cardiotonic agent, MCI-154, involve mechanisms other than cyclic AMP? - Kitada_1987_J.Pharmacol.Exp.Ther_243_639

Abstract : MCI-154 is a new positive inotropic agent with vasodilating property. Experiments were carried out in the canine isolated right ventricular muscle in order to elucidate whether or not cyclic AMP is involved in the positive inotropic effect (PIE) of MCI-154. MCI-154 (10(-7) to 10(-4) M) produced a concentration-dependent PIE amounting to 75% of the maximal effect of isoproterenol. MCI-154 did not affect the time to peak tension and had a tendency to shorten the relaxation time and total duration of contraction. Pindolol, reserpine-pretreatment or tetrodotoxin did not modify the PIE of MCI-154. MCI-154 increased the cyclic AMP levels only at 3 X 10(-4) M, whereas CI-914, of which chemical structure is similar to that of MCI-154, elevated definitely the cyclic AMP at the lower concentrations (10(-5) to 10(-4) M). Carbachol at a concentration known to decrease markedly the PIE of amrinone, milrinone and papaverine, did not affect the PIE of MCI-154. MCI-154 inhibited the activity of a crude phosphodiesterase (PDE) from the canine ventricular muscle and it enhanced the PIE of isoproterenol, which implied the involvement of cyclic AMP. However, the maximal inhibition of PDE by MCI-154 remained less than 18%. Amrinone, milrinone and papaverine inhibited more potently the PDE activity than MCI-154. These results suggest that the elevation of cyclic AMP levels is only partially involved in the PIE of MCI-154 in the canine right ventricular muscle, and that MCI-154 may have novel mechanisms of action different from those of amrinone, milrinone and CI-914 that are largely cyclic AMP-dependent.
