The incidence of diseases caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) is increasing annually worldwide, including Japan. Mycobacterium avium subsp. hoiminissuis (MAH) is one of the most common NTM species responsible for chronic lung diseases in animals and humans. In the current study, mycobacterial interspersed repetitive unit-variable number tandem repeat (MIRU-VNTR) typing was employed to characterize the genetic diversity of swine MAH isolates from Kyushu, Japan. In total, 309 isolates were obtained from the lymph nodes of 107 pigs not displaying any clinical signs of disease, of which 307 were identified as MAH, comprising 173 strains. Based on eight established MIRU-VNTR loci, the MAH strains represented 50 genotypes constituting three lineages, and 29 had not been described in the Mac French National Institute for Agricultural Research Nouzilly MIRU-VNTR (Mac-INMV) database. MAH was the dominant M. avium complex (MAC) in pigs from Kyushu, and there was high genetic diversity among genotype profiles of MAH from Kyushu. We identified three predominant genotype profiles in the tested area sharing high relatedness with genotype profiles of strains isolated in European countries. MAH was the most common NTM in pigs from Kyushu and exhibited high diversity, with new strain-derived genotypes.

Antibodies that recognized either Babesia gibsoni or canine red blood cell (RBC) 70-kilodalton (kDa) protein were detected in serum from acutely and chronically B. gibsoni-infected. In those sera, antibodies that reacted with recombinant B. gibsoni and canine heat shock protein 70 (rBgHsp70 and rcHsp70) were detected; therefore, B. gibsoni and canine RBC 70-kDa proteins seemed to be BgHsp70 and cHsp70, respectively. In infected dogs, the amounts of these antibodies increased after infection. Interestingly, polyclonal antibody raised against rBgHsp70 in two rabbits reacted not only with rBgHsp70 but also with rcHsp70 and native cHsp70 from canine RBCs. Because BgHsp70 showed high homology with cHsp70 (70.8%), anti-rBgHsp70 antibody might cross-react with cHsp70. Additionally, the localizations of both BgHsp70 and cHsp70 were observed by indirect fluorescence assay. As a result, cHsp70 was not found on the membrane surface of erythrocytes, suggesting that erythrocytes would not be targets of anti-cHsp70 antibody. Meanwhile, only exoerythrocytic parasites were stained by anti-rBgHsp70 antibody. This result showed that BgHsp70 would be expressed on the surface of parasites during the exoerythrocytic stage. These results indicated that BgHsp70 was a highly immunogenic protein in canine B. gibsoni infection, and that exoerythrocytic parasites might be targets of anti-BgHsp70 antibody.

Molecular cloning of monkey CYP2C43 cDNA and expression in yeast.

Drug Metab Pharmacokinet 2002 ;17(2):117-24

Division of Pharmacy, Shinshu University Hospital, Matsumoto, Japan.

A cDNA clone designated as CYP2C43 was isolated from the rhesus monkey liver cDNA library. The first 16 amino acid residues at the N-terminal region of this cDNA product were identical with those of P450 CMLd which have been purified and characterized as S-mephenytoin 4'-hydroxylase in monkey liver. The respective nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequences of CYP2C43 were 83% and 77%, identical to those of monkey CYP2C20. Antibody against CYP2C9 detected a protein in the microsomes of yeast transformed CYP2C43 expression plasmid. The specific content of recombinant CYP2C43 was 78.0 pmol/mg protein and the yield was 4.23 nmol/l of the culture. CYP2C43 was able to metabolize S-mephenytoin stereo-selectively. The activity for S-mephenytoin in the microsomes reconstituted with or without cytochrome b(5) was found to be 96.2 or 23.7 pmol/min/nmol P450, respectively. CYP2C43, however, did not show any oxidative activity for tolbutamide. These results indicate that CYP2C43 is the second identified member of the monkey CYP2C subfamily and a cDNA clone encoding P450 CMLd in monkey.
