Characterization of a leucine aminopeptidase from Toxoplasma gondii OAK
Jia, Honglin; Nishikawa, Yoshifumi; Luo, Yuzi; Yamagishi, Junya; Sugimoto, Chihiro; Xuan, Xuenan.
The M17 family leucine aminopeptidase (LAP) hydrolyze amino acids from the N-terminus of peptides. Many LAPs from parasitic protozoa including Plasmmodium, Trypanosoma and Leishmania, have been intensely investigated because of their crucial roles in parasite biology. In this study, a functional recombinant Toxoplasma gondii LAP (rTgLAP) was expressed in Escherichia coli and its enzymatic activity against synthetic substrates for aminopeptidase, as well as the cellular localization was determined. Our results indicated that TgLAP is a functional aminopeptidase in the cytoplasma of T. gondii.

Characterization of an epimastigote-stage-specific hemoglobin receptor of Trypanosoma congolense OAK
Yamasaki, Shino; Suganuma, Keisuke; Yamagishi, Junya; Asada, Masahito; Yokoyama, Naoaki; Kawazu, Shin-ichiro; Inoue, Noboru.
Background: Since Trypanosorna spp. lack a complete heme synthesis pathway, the parasites are totally dependent on their host for heme throughout all of the stages of their life -cycle. We herein report the identification and characterization of a T. congolense epimastigote form (EMF)-specific hemoglobin (Hb) receptor. The gene was initially reported to encode a T. congolense haptoglobin (Hp)-Hb complex receptor (TcHpHbR) based on its similarity to a gene encoding a T brucei Hp-Hb complex receptor (TbHpHbR). Methods: Trypanosorna congolense IL3000 was used in this study. A TcHpHbR gene was PCR amplified from the parasite genome. The recombinant protein was used as an immunogen to raise antibodies for immunofluorescence assay and immunoblotting. Hemoglobin...

Identification and functional analysis of a novel mitochondria-localized 2-Cys peroxiredoxin, BbTPx-2, from Babesia bovis OAK
Masatani, Tatsunori; Asada, Masahito; Hakimi, Hassan; Hayashi, Kei; Yamagishi, Junya; Kawazu, Shin-ichiro; Xuan, Xuenan.
Cysteine-based peroxidases, known as peroxiredoxins (Prx) or thioredoxin peroxidases (TPx), are important antioxidant enzymes that prevent oxidative damage caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS). In this study, we identified a novel mitochondrial 2-Cys Prx, BbTPx-2, from a bovine Babesia parasite, B. bovis. BbTPx-2 complementary DNA (cDNA) encodes a polypeptide of 254 amino acid residues. This protein has a mitochondrial targeting peptide at the N-terminus and two conserved cysteine residues of the typical 2-Cys Prx. By using a thiol mixed-function oxidation assay, the antioxidant activity of recombinant BbTPx-2 was revealed, and its antioxidant activity was comparable to that of a cytosolic 2-Cys Prx from B. bovis, BbTPx-1. Notably, we confirmed that...

Identification of a novel B. gibsoni 27-kDa protein as a serodiagnostic antigen OAK
Terkawi, M. A.; Aboge, G.; Jia, H.; Goo, Y-K.; Ooka, H.; Yamagishi, Junya; Nishikawa, Yoshifumi; Kawazu, Shin-ichiro; Fujisaki, K.; Xuan, Xuenan; 山岸, 潤也; 西川, 義文; 河津, 信一郎; 玄, 学南.
A novel gene encoding 27-kDa protein was identified by the screening of Babesia gibsoni cDNA library with acutely infected dog serum. The BgP27 is a single copy gene with a predicted open reading frame of 762 bp and 254 amino acids. The phylogenic analysis of the deduced amino acid of BgP27 demonstrated considerable identities with members of Plasmodium berghei circumsporozoite protein family that ranged between 18.4% and 22.8%. The BgP27 was expressed as a glutathione S-transferase fusion protein in Escherichia coli. The serum raised in mice against the recombinant protein specifically reacted with a 27-kDa protein in the extracts of B. gibsoni parasites. Confocal laser scanning microscopic observation showed high fluorescent reactivity with both...

Mycophenolic acid and its derivatives as potential chemotherapeutic agents targeting inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase in Trypanosoma congolense OAK
Suganuma, Keisuke; Sarwono, Albertus Eka Yudistira; Mitsuhashi, Shinya; Jąkalski, Marcin; Okada, Tadashi; Nthatisi, Molefe; Yamagishi, Junya; Ubukata, Makoto; Inoue, Noboru.
This study aimed to evaluate the trypanocidal activity of mycophenolic acid (MPA) and its derivatives for Trypanosoma congolense. The proliferation of T. congolense was completely inhibited by adding <1 mu M MPA and its derivatives. In addition, the IMP dehydrogenase in T. congolense was molecularly characterized as the target of these compounds. The results suggest that MPA and its derivatives have the potential to be new candidates as novel trypanocidal drugs.

Serodiagnosis of ovine toxoplasmosis in Mongolia by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay with recombinant Toxoplasma gondii matrix antigen 1 OAK
Tumurjav, Buyannemekh; Terkawi, Mohamad Alaa; Zhang, Houshuang; Zhang, Guohong; Jia, Honglin; Goo, Youn-Kyoung; Yamagishi, Junya; Nishikawa, Yoshifumi; Igarashi, Ikuo; Sugimoto, Chihiro; Xuan, Xuenan.
Toxoplasma gondii matrix antigen 1 (TgMAG1), known as the 65-kDa protein, which is abundantly expressed in both bradyzoites and tachyzoites, was evaluated as a candidate for the development of a diagnostic reagent for ovine toxoplasmosis. The TgMAG1 gene was expressed in Escherichia coli as a fusion protein with glutathione S-transferase (GST),and the recombinant TgMAG1 (rTgMAG1) was tested in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The ELISA with rTgMAG1 showed a highly specific reaction with sera from mice experimentally infected with T. gondii but not with the closely related Neospora caninum. The antibodies to TgMAG1 were detectable from the acute to the chronic infectious stages in a mouse model. A total of 175 serum samples collected from sheep...

Transcriptional profiling of Toll-like receptor 2-deficient primary murine brain cells during Toxoplasma gondii infection OAK
Umeda, Kousuke; Tanaka, Sachi; Ihara, Fumiaki; Yamagishi, Junya; Suzuki, Yutaka; Nishikawa, Yoshifumi.
Background: Toxoplasma gondii is capable of persisting in the brain, although it is efficiently eliminated by cellular immune responses in most other sites. While Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) reportedly plays important roles in protective immunity against the parasite, the relationship between neurological disorders induced by T. gondii infection and TLR2 function in the brain remains controversial with many unknowns. In this study, primary cultured astrocytes, microglia, neurons, and peritoneal macrophages obtained from wild-type and TLR2-deficient mice were exposed to T. gondii tachyzoites. To characterize TLR2-dependent functional pathways activated in response to T. gondii infection, gene expression of different cell types was profiled by RNA...
