Substrate specificity and inhibition studies of human serotonin N-acetyltransferase. (1/63)

Arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase (AANAT) catalyzes the reaction of serotonin with acetyl-CoA to form N-acetylserotonin and plays a major role in the regulation of the melatonin circadian rhythm in vertebrates. In the present study, the human cloned enzyme has been expressed in bacteria, purified, cleaved, and characterized. The specificity of the human enzyme toward substrates (natural as well as synthetic arylethylamines) and cosubstrates (essentially acyl homologs of acetyl-CoA) has been investigated. Peptide combinatorial libraries of tri-, tetra-, and pentapeptides with various amino acid compositions were also screened as potential sources of inhibitors. We report the findings of several peptides with low micromolar inhibitory potency. For activity measurement as well as for specificity studies, an original and rapid method of analysis was developed. The assay was based on the separation and detection of N-[(3)H]acetylarylethylamine formed from various arylethylamines and tritiated acetyl-CoA, by means of high performance liquid chromatography with radiochemical detection. The assay proved to be robust and flexible, could accommodate the use of numerous synthetic substrates, and was successfully used throughout this study. We also screened a large number of pharmacological bioamines among which only one, tranylcypromine, behaved as a substrate. The synthesis and survey of simple arylethylamines also showed that AANAT has a large recognition pattern, including compounds as different as phenyl-, naphthyl-, benzothienyl-, or benzofuranyl-ethylamine derivatives. An extensive enzymatic study allowed us to pinpoint the amino acid residue of the pentapeptide inhibitor, S 34461, which interacts with the cosubstrate-binding site area, in agreement with an in silico study based on the available coordinates of the hAANAT crystal.  (+info)

cAmp regulation of arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase (AANAT, EC 2.3.1.87): a new cell line (1E7) provides evidence of intracellular AANAT activation. (2/63)

Arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase (serotonin N-acetyltransferase, AANAT, EC ) is the penultimate enzyme in melatonin synthesis. As described here, a cell line (1E7) expressing human AANAT (hAANAT) has been developed to study the human enzyme. 1E7 hAANAT is detectable in immunoblots as a 23-kDa band and is immunocytochemically visualized in the cytoplasm. The specific concentration of hAANAT in homogenates is comparable to that of the night rat pineal gland. Kinetics of AANAT extracted from 1E7 cells are the same as those of bacterially expressed hAANAT; both preparations of hAANAT are equally sensitive to the inhibitor CoA-S-N-acetyltryptamine. Studies of cAMP regulation indicate that treatment with forskolin, dibutyryl cAMP, isobutylmethylxanthine, or isoproterenol activate cellular hAANAT within intact 1E7 cells approximately 8-fold without markedly increasing the abundance of AANAT protein or the activity of AANAT in broken cell preparations; and, that forskolin, isobutylmethylxanthine and isoproterenol elevate cyclic AMP production. These observations extend our understanding of cAMP regulation of AANAT activity, because it is currently thought that this only involves changes in the steady-state levels of AANAT protein. This previously unrecognized switching mechanism could function physiologically to control melatonin production without changing AANAT protein levels.  (+info)

Role of a pineal cAMP-operated arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase/14-3-3-binding switch in melatonin synthesis. (3/63)

The daily rhythm in melatonin levels is controlled by cAMP through actions on the penultimate enzyme in melatonin synthesis, arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase (AANAT; serotonin N-acetyltransferase, EC ). Results presented here describe a regulatory/binding sequence in AANAT that encodes a cAMP-operated binding switch through which cAMP-regulated protein kinase-catalyzed phosphorylation [RRHTLPAN --> RRHpTLPAN] promotes formation of a complex with 14-3-3 proteins. Formation of this AANAT/14-3-3 complex enhances melatonin production by shielding AANAT from dephosphorylation and/or proteolysis and by decreasing the K(m) for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). Similar switches could play a role in cAMP signal transduction in other biological systems.  (+info)

Retinal ganglion cells are autonomous circadian oscillators synthesizing N-acetylserotonin during the day. (4/63)

Retinal ganglion cells send visual and circadian information to the brain regarding the environmental light-dark cycles. We investigated the capability of retinal ganglion cells of synthesizing melatonin, a highly reliable circadian marker that regulates retinal physiology, as well as the capacity of these cells to function as autonomous circadian oscillators. Chick retinal ganglion cells presented higher levels of melatonin assessed by radioimmunoassay during both the subjective day in constant darkness and the light phase of a light-dark cycle. Similar changes were observed in mRNA levels and activity of arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase, a key enzyme in melatonin biosynthesis, with the highest levels of both parameters during the subjective day. These daily variations were preceded by the elevation of cyclic-AMP content, the second messenger involved in the regulation of melatonin biosynthesis. Moreover, cultures of immunopurified retinal ganglion cells at embryonic day 8 synchronized by medium exchange synthesized a [3H]melatonin-like indole from [3H]tryptophan. This [3H]indole was rapidly released to the culture medium and exhibited a daily variation, with levels peaking 8 h after synchronization, which declined a few hours later. Cultures of embryonic retinal ganglion cells also showed self-sustained daily rhythms in arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase mRNA expression during at least three cycles with a period near 24 h. These rhythms were also observed after the application of glutamate. The results demonstrate that chick retinal ganglion cells may function as autonomous circadian oscillators synthesizing a melatonin-like indole during the day.  (+info)

Cellular stability of serotonin N-acetyltransferase conferred by phosphonodifluoromethylene alanine (Pfa) substitution for Ser-205. (5/63)

Large changes in the activity of serotonin N-acetyltransferase (arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase, AANAT) in the pineal gland control the rhythmic production of the time-keeping hormone melatonin. The activity of AANAT reflects changes in the amount and activation state of the AANAT protein, both of which increase at night. The molecular basis of this regulation is now becoming known, and recent data indicate that this involves phosphorylation-dependent binding to the 14-3-3 protein at two sites, one of which, Ser-205, is located several residues from the C terminus. In this study, we determined whether substitution of this residue with a non-hydrolyzable the phosphoserine/phosphothreonine mimetic would promote binding to the 14-3-3 protein and enhance cellular stability. To accomplish this, a C-terminal AANAT peptide containing the phosphonodifluoromethylene alanine at Ser-205 was synthesized and fused to bacterially expressed AANAT(30-199) using expressed protein ligation. The resulting semisynthetic protein has enhanced affinity for the expressed 14-3-3 protein and exhibits greater cellular stability in microinjection experiments, as compared with the unmodified AANAT. Enhanced 14-3-3 binding was also observed using humanized ovine AANAT, which has a different C-terminal sequence (Gly-Cys) than the ovine enzyme (Asp-Arg), indicating that that characteristic is not unique to the ovine enzyme. These studies provide the first evidence that substitution of Ser-205 with the stable phosphomimetic amino acid phosphonodifluoromethylene alanine enhances binding to 14-3-3 and the cellular stability of AANAT and are consistent with the view that Ser-205 phosphorylation plays a critical role in the regulation of AANAT activity and melatonin production.  (+info)

Melatonin synthesis: 14-3-3-dependent activation and inhibition of arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase mediated by phosphoserine-205. (6/63)

The nocturnal increase in circulating melatonin in vertebrates is regulated by the activity of arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase (AANAT), the penultimate enzyme in the melatonin pathway (serotonin --> N-acetylserotonin --> melatonin). Large changes in activity are linked to cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase-mediated phosphorylation of AANAT T31. Phosphorylation of T31 promotes binding of AANAT to the dimeric 14-3-3 protein, which activates AANAT by increasing arylalkylamine affinity. In the current study, a putative second AANAT cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase phosphorylation site, S205, was found to be approximately 55% phosphorylated at night, when T31 is approximately 40% phosphorylated. These findings indicate that ovine AANAT is dual-phosphorylated. Moreover, light exposure at night decreases T31 and S205 phosphorylation, consistent with a regulatory role of both sites. AANAT peptides containing either T31 or S205 associate with 14-3-3zeta in a phosphorylation-dependent manner; binding through phosphorylated (p)T31 is stronger than that through pS205, consistent with the location of only pT31 in a mode I binding motif, one of two recognized high-affinity 14-3-3-binding motifs AANAT protein binds to 14-3-3zeta through pT31 or pS205. Two-site binding lowers the Km for arylalkylamine substrate to approximately 30 microM. In contrast, single-site pS205 binding increases the Km to approximately 1,200 microM. Accordingly, the switch from dual to single pS205 binding of AANAT to 14-3-3 changes the Km for substrates by approximately 40-fold. pS205 seems to be part of a previously unrecognized 14-3-3-binding motif-pS/pT (X1-2)-COOH, referred to here as mode III.  (+info)

Homeobox-clock protein interaction in zebrafish. A shared mechanism for pineal-specific and circadian gene expression. (7/63)

In non-mammalian vertebrates, the pineal gland is photoreceptive and contains an intrinsic circadian oscillator that drives rhythmic production and secretion of melatonin. These features require an accurate spatiotemporal expression of an array of specific genes in the pineal gland. Among these is the arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase, a key enzyme in the melatonin production pathway. In zebrafish, pineal specificity of zfaanat2 is determined by a region designated the pineal-restrictive downstream module (PRDM), which contains three photoreceptor conserved elements (PCEs) and an E-box, elements that are generally associated with photoreceptor-specific and rhythmic expression, respectively. Here, by using in vivo and in vitro approaches, it was found that the PCEs and E-box of the PRDM mediate a synergistic effect of the photoreceptor-specific homeobox OTX5 and rhythmically expressed clock protein heterodimer, BMAL/CLOCK, on zfaanat2 expression. Furthermore, the distance between the PCEs and the E-box was found to be critical for PRDM function, suggesting a possible physical feature of this synergistic interaction. OTX5-BMAL/CLOCK may act through this mechanism to simultaneously control pineal-specific and rhythmic expression of zfaanat2 and possibly also other pineal and retinal genes.  (+info)

Rhythmic serotonin N-acetyltransferase mRNA degradation is essential for the maintenance of its circadian oscillation. (8/63)

Serotonin N-acetyltransferase (arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase [AANAT]) is the key enzyme in melatonin synthesis regulated by circadian rhythm. To date, our understanding of the oscillatory mechanism of melatonin has been limited to autoregulatory transcriptional and posttranslational regulations of AANAT mRNA. In this study, we identify three proteins from pineal glands that associate with cis-acting elements within species-specific AANAT 3' untranslated regions to mediate mRNA degradation. These proteins include heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein R (hnRNP R), hnRNP Q, and hnRNP L. Their RNA-destabilizing function was determined by RNA interference and overexpression approaches. Expression patterns of these factors in pineal glands display robust circadian rhythm. The enhanced levels detected after midnight correlate with an abrupt decline in AANAT mRNA level. A mathematical model for the AANAT mRNA profile and its experimental evidence with rat pinealocytes indicates that rhythmic AANAT mRNA degradation mediated by hnRNP R, hnRNP Q, and hnRNP L is a key process in the regulation of its circadian oscillation.  (+info)

Aralkylamine N-acetyltransferase (AANAT) (EC 2.3.1.87), also known as arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase or serotonin N-acetyltransferase (SNAT), is an enzyme that is involved in the day/night rhythmic production of melatonin, by modification of serotonin. It is in humans encoded by the ~2.5 kb AANAT gene containing four exons, located on chromosome 17q25. The gene is translated into a 23 kDa large enzyme. It is well conserved through evolution and the human form of the protein is 80% identical to sheep and rat AANAT. It is an acetyl-CoA-dependent enzyme of the GCN5-related family of N-acetyltransferases (GNATs). It may contribute to multifactorial genetic diseases such as altered behavior in sleep/wake cycle and research is on-going with the aim of developing drugs that regulate AANAT function. The systematic name of this enzyme class is acetyl-CoA:2-arylethylamine N-acetyltransferase. Other names in common use include: AANAT Arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase Melatonin rhythm enzyme Serotonin ...

Abstract Melatonin is the time-keeping molecule of vertebrates. The daily and annual variations of its rhythmic production allow synchronizing metabolism, physiological functions and behaviour to the environment changes. In fish, melatonin is produced by the photoreceptors of the pineal organ and retina as well as by other retinal cell types in the inner nuclear and ganglion cell layers. In most species, the melatonin rhythm displays a high-at-night profile, resulting from the circadian control of the arylalkylamine N-acetyltranferase (AANAT) activity. AANAT is the penultimate enzyme in the melatonin biosynthesis pathway. This review summarizes our current knowledge on the molecular and cellular mecha- nisms controlling the rhythmic production of melatonin, as well as on the targets and modes of action of the hormone in fish, with special emphasis on neuroendocrine functions.. ...

The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the acetyltransferase superfamily. It is the penultimate enzyme in melatonin synthesis and controls the night/day rhythm in melatonin production in the vertebrate pineal gland. Melatonin is essential for the function of the circadian clock that influences activity and sleep. This enzyme is regulated by cAMP-dependent phosphorylation that promotes its interaction with 14-3-3 proteins and thus protects the enzyme against proteasomal degradation. This gene may contribute to numerous genetic diseases such as delayed sleep phase syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

N-acetyltransferase 1 (arylamine N-acetyltransferase) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NAT1 gene. This gene is one of two arylamine N-acetyltransferase (NAT) genes in the human genome, and is orthologous to the mouse and rat NAT2 genes. The enzyme encoded by this gene catalyzes the transfer of an acetyl group from acetyl-CoA to various arylamine and hydrazine substrates. This enzyme helps metabolize drugs and other xenobiotics, and functions in folate catabolism. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

Melatonin is a natural hormone nutrient that is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan by the pineal gland in the back of the brain. In the body, melatonin appears to regulate sleep/wake cycles, support normal immune function, and protect cells from free radical damage.. Most of the research on melatonin has focused on its role in maintaining normal sleep/wake rhythms. The perception of daylight in the eyes is a signal for the pineal gland to inhibit melatonin synthesis and release. At night or in the dark, the bodys melatonin production rises. The rise in plasma melatonin is thought to be responsible for bringing on sleep. Nocturnal melatonin production is highest in children and begins to decline from adolescence or until it is virtually absent in the elderly.. Melatonin is considered a potent antioxidant that enters all body cells to help prevent free radical damage. In the brain, melatonin is perhaps the most important physiological antioxidant. Due to its lipid and watersoluble ...
CONCLUSIONS: It appears likely that changes in pineal melatonin production cannot be correlated directly with the effects of pinealectomy on the crypts, although melatonin production was not measured in this case. The role of loss of the non-adrenergic innervation of the pineal in the effect of pinealectomy needs to be examined. There is also other experimental evidence that melatonin-free extracts of the pineal, containing as yet unidentified substances, can influence mitotic activity in some tissues, so the possible role of these substances in the effects of pinealectomy should also be considered. Furthermore, the superior cervical ganglion itself has an extra-pineal role. Changes in pineal sympathetic innervation are not significant in the hyperproliferative effects of pinealectomy on the intestinal crypts..... Read abstract Full text PDF ...
I hear the words give them melatonin quite often as a solution to help with your baby or toddlers sleep. It actually scares me to hear this because I dont agree in just giving supplements because. Many people seem to think that if it is something that our bodies already produce naturally then that make it ok. But of that is the case, I tend to lean towards the WHY isnt our body not producing enough or WHY do I need more?. Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone produced by a gland in our brains that helps regulate the sleep cycle. Normally, melatonin levels begin rising in the mid to late evening and remain high throughout the night. The increase in melatonin production is what facilitates sleep. Levels tend to drop in the nearly morning hours as the brighter light and sunshine contribute to melatonin production.. If your child is having issues sleeping, it is best to consult a Certified Sleep Specialist or your medical doctor. It is better and SAFER to decipher the culprit of the ...
Melatonin is a hormone that is produced by the pineal gland in the brain and production of melatonin follows the circadian cycle. When there is less light, receptors in the optic nerve send a message to the brain to notify it of chances in the circadian cycle. The brain then sends a message to the pineal gland to produce more melatonin in order to make us sleepy. The reverse works when there is more light and melatonin production slows down, resulting in us being more alert. Melatonin production naturally slows down with age, which is one of the reasons why many people struggle to sleep for long periods of time.. Some people who have trouble sleeping find that their bodies are producing low levels of melatonin. Although a naturally occurring substance in some food items, including bananas, tomatoes, barley and oats, many people opt to take melatonin supplements to help them combat sleep disorders such as jet lag and insomnia. Although it doesnt make you fall asleep, it promotes it by ensuring ...

The pineal gland is a bit of cone shaped gland which is hidden away deep in the human brain. Although its a small gland, it plays a really crucial role in The aging and melatonin production process
Dr. Mercolas Comments:. Its well known that lack of sleep interferes with metabolism and hormone production in a way that is similar to the effects of aging. One way that this may occur could be related to the action of melatonin, the sleep hormone secreted by your brain. Normally, your brain produces melatonin in a daily rhythm that peaks at night, around 9 or 10 p.m. This makes you sleepy, and it is these regularly occurring secretions that help regulate your sleep cycle. If youre not getting enough sleep, theres a good chance your melatonin production is not up to par either, and this could have far-reaching impacts on your health, even accelerating the aging process of your brain.. The Powerful Antioxidant Effects of Melatonin In a new study, artificially aged mice treated with melatonin had reduced oxidative stress and markers of cerebral aging and neurodegeneration, indicating the melatonin offered both neuroprotective and anti-aging effects. Melatonin actually has antioxidant ...
In January of 2013, all dairy heifers were artificially inseminated with sex-sorted semen at the Joe Bearden Dairy Research Center. Prior to day 170 of gestation, heifers (n=20) were trained to acquire their feed using the Calan feeding system (American Calan, Northwood, NH). On day 190 of gestation, heifers were blocked by their body weight and randomly assigned to one of two dietary treatments consisting of 1) 20 mg of dietary melatonin per day (MEL) or 2) no dietary melatonin supplementation (control; CON). At 0800 hours, the MEL heifers received 0.7 kg of grain top dressed with 2 mL of 10 mg per mL melatonin in ethanol. The CON heifers received 0.7 kg of grain top dressed with 2 mL of ethanol alone. The melatonin was supplemented in the morning hours in order to compensate for the bodies natural spike in melatonin production following the dark hours. After all heifers consumed their grain, they were provided 17.5 kg of a total mixed ration. Blood samples were collected via venipuncture of ...
We know the part of your brain where Circadian Rhythms live. Its in your supraschiasmatic nucleus (SCN). Thats in the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus seems to be fairly important to your health in that it regulates stuff like, body temperature, fluids/electrolytes, hunger, and hormone production. Im not saying you couldnt get healthy without help from the hypothalamus, but if you were to fry the damn thing by screwing up your Circadian Rhythms hard and often - you might struggle a bit. The other thing we know is your SCN is connected to the retina of your eye. If it is dark, the SCN tells your body to secrete melatonin and make you peacefully sleepy. If its light, the SCN inhibits melatonin production. Hint: if you are having trouble sleeping please ponder on the darkness thing you just learned. In the winter (assuming you live far from the equator), your SCN has developed a strange way of adapting to the longer periods of darkness. It produces melatonin in 2 stages. The first stage ...
Women who overeat late in the night may suffer from a syndrome where their melatonin production is too low and out of order. This causes an increased production of the stress hormone cortisol and a hormone called ghrelin that stimulates hunger.
In summary:. It begins in the gut. Alterations within the gut flora are occurring in large part through the consumption of RoundUp residue in genetically modified food, not to mention sugar/HFCS processed food and overly prescribed antibiotics. This gut flora alteration is commonly characterized by an overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria which break down the lining of the gut. Furthermore, the gut flora alterations then compromise the ability for the body to make the raw ingredients for melatonin production, namely tryptophan and serotonin. The lining of the gut is maintained, in part, by melatonin(R). As the microbes and their waste products seep into the blood stream the immune system within the periphery of the body releases inflammatory molecules which begin to promote proinflammatory activity in the nervous system. This proinflammatory activity state is called, microglial activation. The microglial cells being the primary immune cells of the nervous system are prone to shifting from a ...
An A-star for Joanna Bales excellent impartial report on Wireless netwoks in schools (times 20th November). Sadly, though, E-minus for your so-called Health Editors facile and heavily-loaded comment. Informed parents have every reason to be concerned about WiFi in schools. Ms Davies was right to liken it to having a mobile phone mast in the classroom, the technologies are remarkably similar. Peer-reviewed replicated research shows reduction in melatonin production by those exposed to periodic amplitude modulated (pulsed) radiation of this sort. Melatonin is a sleep regulator and anti-cancer scavenger. Guess what? - Statistically significant increases in cancers around mast installations according to several independent studies, and sleep problems experienced by many living close to masts. Other research shows this type of radiation allows transfer of toxins from the bloodstream into brain cells. This would lead to significant increases in headaches, nausea, dizziness and disorientation around ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The in vitro activation of cyclic AMP production by either forskolin or isoproterenol in the syrian hamster pineal during the day is not accompanied by an increase in melatonin production. AU - Santana, Celsa. AU - Guerrero, Juan M.. AU - Reiter, Russel J. AU - Troiani, Maureen E.. PY - 1988/12/30. Y1 - 1988/12/30. N2 - The role of cyclic AMP in the regulation of melatonin production was investigated in cultured Syrian hamster pineal glands. Forskolin markedly increased cyclic AMP production in pineal glands collected either late in the light period or in the dark period. The effect of forskolin was synergistically enhanced by 3-isobutylmethylxanthine, a phosphodiesterase inhibitor; however, increase in cyclic AMP after isoproterenol was only apparent in the presence of 3-isobutylmethylxanthine. Since β-adrenergic agonists are able to stimulate melatonin production late in the dark period only, these data suggest that, in the hamster pineal gland, there may be intracellular ...

Retina and anterior neural fold homeobox (Rax) gene encodes a transcription factor essential for vertebrate eye development. Recent microarray studies indicate that Rax is expressed in the adult rat pineal gland and retina. The present study reveals that Rax expression levels in the rat change significantly during retinal development with a peak occurring at embryonic day (E) 18, whereas Rax expression in the pineal is relatively delayed and not detectable until E20. In both tissues, Rax is expressed throughout postnatal development into adulthood. In the mature rat pineal gland, the abundance of Rax transcripts increases 2-fold during the light period with a peak occurring at dusk. These findings are consistent with the evidence that Rax is of functional importance in eye development and suggest a role of Rax in the developing pineal gland. In addition, it would appear possible that Rax contributes to phenotype maintenance in the mature retina and pineal gland and may facilitate 24-h changes in ...
Inherent in all living organisms, natures circadian rhythm springs us into activity in the daytime and then into rest and restoration at night. And this circadian rhythm is attuned to the presence and absence of the sun, principally blue light.. Melatonin is critical to regulating the bodys circadian rhythm. When the sun goes down and it becomes dark, our eyes sense the absence of light and send a signal to the brain, which instructs the pineal gland to produce melatonin and put us to sleep.. Now in modern times, the incandescent light began humankinds earliest assault on natures circadian rhythm. This has only worsened with the advent of television, computers, tablets, cell phones, gaming stations and whatever else produces light to interfere with our circadian rhythm. When the lights stay on, melatonin production is slowed or stopped.. Exposure to sunlight - at least 10 to 15 minutes a day is recommended - is also crucial to the production of vitamin D, which is found in very few foods but ...

Some cancer risk factors are well established and well known, like smoking. Others arent well known at all. Here are 10 things that are linked to cancer, some of which may surprise you:. 1. Shift work. For all those employees working vampire hours, its discouraging to hear that shift work has joined the list of items considered probably carcinogenic to humans, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Studies show that women working the graveyard shift, like flight attendants and nurses, have a greater risk of developing breast cancer. Researchers are investigating how disruption of the circadian system, the bodys natural sleep-wake cycle, can affect melatonin production and possibly cause tumors to develop.. 2. High-temperature cooking. If you like your steak grilled to a crisp, you might be putting yourself at risk for something more than just burnt taste buds. Studies cite a connection between high-temperature cooking (like grilling or frying) and colorectal ...
