Calcium signaling is essential for the differentiation of many cell types, including skeletal muscle cells, but its mechanisms remain elusive. Here we demonstrate a crucial role for nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) signaling in skeletal muscle differentiation. Although the inositol trisphosphate pathway may have a partial role to play in this process, the ryanodine signaling cascade is not involved. In both skeletal muscle precursors and C2C12, cells interfering with NAADP signaling prevented differentiation, whereas promoting NAADP signaling potentiated differentiation. Moreover, siRNA knockdown of two-pore channels, the target of NAADP, attenuated differentiation. The data presented here strongly suggest that in myoblasts, NAADP acts at acidic organelles on the recently discovered two-pore channels to promote differentiation.
In sea urchin eggs, Ca2+ mobilization by nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) potently self-inactivates but paradoxically induces long-term Ca2+ oscillations. We investigated whether NAADP-induced Ca2+ oscillations arise from the recruitment of other Ca2+ release pathways. NAADP, inositol trisphosphate (IP3) and cyclic ADP-ribose (cADPR) all mobilized Ca2+ from internal stores but only NAADP consistently induced Ca2+ oscillations. NAADP-induced Ca2+ oscillations were partially inhibited by heparin or 8-amino-cADPR alone, but eliminated by the presence of both, indicating a requirement for both IP3- and cADPR-dependent Ca2+ release. Thapsigargin completely blocked IP3 and cADPR responses as well as NAADP-induced Ca2+ oscillations, but only reduced the NAADP-mediated Ca2+ transient. Following NAADP-mediated release from this Ca2+ pool, the amount of Ca2+ in the Ca2+-induced Ca2+ release stores was increased. These results support a mechanism in which Ca2+ oscillations are initiated by Ca2
Intracellular Ca(2+) release is mostly mediated by inositol trisphosphate, but intracellular cyclic-ADP-ribose (cADPR) and nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) are important messengers in many systems. Whereas cADPR generally activates type 2 ryanodine receptors (RyR2s), the NAADP-activated Ca(2+) release mechanism is less clear. Using knockouts and antibodies against RyRs and Two-Pore Channels (TPCs), we have compared their relative importance for NAADP-induced Ca(2+) release from two-photon permeabilized pancreatic acinar cells. In these cells, cholecystokinin-elicited Ca(2+) release is mediated by NAADP. TPC2-KO reduced NAADP-induced Ca(2+) release by 64%, but the combination of TPC2-KO and an antibody against TPC1, significantly reduced Ca(2+) release by 86% (64% vs. 86%, p|0.0002). In RyR3-KO, NAADP-evoked Ca(2+) release reduced by ∼50% but, when combined with antibodies against RyR1, responses were 90% inhibited. Antibodies against RyR2 had practically no effect on NAADP-evoked

A cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) kills an infected or tumorigenic cell by Ca(2+)-dependent exocytosis of cytolytic granules at the immunological synapse formed between the two cells. Although inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP(3))-mediated Ca(2+) release from the endoplasmic reticulum activates the store-operated Ca(2+)-influx pathway that is necessary for exocytosis, it is not a sufficient stimulus. Here we identify the Ca(2+)-mobilizing messenger nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) and its recently identified molecular target, two-pore channels (TPCs), as being important for T cell receptor signaling in CTLs. We demonstrate that cytolytic granules are not only reservoirs of cytolytic proteins but are also the acidic Ca(2+) stores mobilized by NAADP via TPC channels on the granules themselves, so that TPCs migrate to the immunological synapse upon CTL activation. Moreover, NAADP activates TPCs to drive exocytosis in a way that is not mimicked by global Ca(2+) signals induced by IP(3) or
Nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) is a potent Ca2+-releasing second messenger that might regulate different ion channels, including the ryanodine receptor, two-pore channels, and TRP-ML1 (transient receptor potential channel, subtype mucolipin 1), a Ca2+ channel localized to lysosomes. New evidence suggests that a 22- and 23-kilodalton pair of proteins could be the receptor for NAADP. Labeling of NAADP binding proteins was independent of overexpression or knockout of two-pore channels, indicating that two-pore channels, although regulated by NAADP, are not the NAADP receptors. I propose that NAADP binding proteins could bind to different ion channels and thus may explain how NAADP regulates diverse ion channels.. ...
Ca 2+ signaling in spermatozoa plays a crucial role during processes such as capacitation and release of the acrosome, but the underlying molecular mechanisms still remain unclear. Nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) is a potent Ca 2+ -releasing second messenger in a variety of cellular processes. The presence of a NAADP synthesizing enzyme in sea urchin sperm has been previously reported, suggesting a possible role of NAADP in sperm Ca 2+ signaling. In this work we used in vitro enzyme assays to show the presence of a novel NAADP synthesizing enzyme in human sperm, and to characterize its sensitivity to Ca 2+ and pH. Ca 2+ fluorescence imaging studies demonstrated that the permeable form of NAADP (NAADP-AM) induces intracellular [Ca 2+ ] increases in human sperm even in the absence of extracellular Ca 2+ . Using LysoTracker®, a fluorescent probe that selectively accumulates in acidic compartments, we identified two such stores in human sperm cells. Their acidic nature was further
As the result of successful collaboration with Dr. K. Mikoshibas laboratory in RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Tokyo, Japan, we found that pancreatic protease activation by alcohol metabolite mainly depends on Ca2+ release via acid store IP3 receptors (Gerasimenko J. et al, PNAS, 2009). Currently there is no specific pharmacological treatment for pancreatitis. However, now our research has identified the critical proteins responsible for the excessive calcium release which is where the problem begins with the possibility to search for specific chemical compounds for the treatment of acute pancreatitis.. I am investigating the action of nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP), a novel Ca2+ releasing messenger and its role in the induction of pathological processes of exocrine pancreas. Our findings (Gerasimenko J, et al., JCS, 2006) show that the NAADP-sensitive Ca2+ pool is located in the endoplasmic reticulum and in acidic organelles, which are represented by secretory granules, ...
A cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) kills an infected or tumorigenic cell by Ca2+-dependent exocytosis of cytolytic granules at the immunological synapse formed between the two cells. However, these granules are more than reservoirs of secretory cytolytic proteins but may also serve as unique Ca2+ signaling hubs that autonomously generate their own signals for exocytosis. This review discusses a selective role for the Ca2+-mobilizing messenger, nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) and its molecular targets, two-pore channels (TPCs), in stimulating exocytosis. Given that TPCs reside on the exocytotic granules themselves, these vesicles generate as well as respond to NAADP-dependent Ca2+ signals, which may have wider implications for stimulus-secretion coupling, vesicular fusion, and patho-physiology.

Ca2+ signals regulate a wide range of physiological processes. Intracellular Ca2+ stores can be mobilized in response to extracellular stimuli via a range of signal transduction mechanisms, often involving recruitment of diffusible second messenger molecules. The Ca2+ mobilizing messengers InsP3 and cADPR release Ca2+ from the endoplasmic reticulum via InsP3 and ryanodine receptors, respectively, while a third messenger, NAADP, releases Ca2+ from acidic endosomes and lysosomes. Bidirectional communication between the ER and acidic organelles has functional relevance for endolysosomal function as well as for the generation of Ca2+ signals. The two-pore channels (TPCs) are currently strong candidates for being key components of NAADP-regulated Ca2+ channels. Ca2+ signals have been shown to play important roles in embryonic development and cell differentiation; however, much remains to be established about the exact signalling mechanisms involved.

Multiple mechanisms exist for increasing the concentration of intracellular calcium. This Perspective by Lee is one in a series on intracellular calcium release mechanisms and focuses on the calcium store operated by nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP). The characterization of the NAADP-operated calcium store as separate from the inositol trisphosphate (IP3)-operated and cyclic ADP-ribose (cADPR)-operated calcium stores is discussed. Lee also addresses the role of NAADP in regulating intracellular calcium fluctuations during fertilization and hormonal activation of pancreatic acinar cells.. ...
Two electrophoretically distinct variants of supernatant nicotinamideadenine dinucleotide phosphate-dependent malate dehydrogenase exist in mice (Mus musculus). They are controlled by codominant alleles segregating at an autosomal locus. The two forms exist in a polymorphic condition in wild populations of Mus musculus and are fixed in a homozygous condition in inbred lines. These genetic electrophoretic variants are used here to study the subunit structure of this enzyme. Evidence indicating a tetrameric structure for mouse nicotinamideadenine dinucleotide phosphate-dependent malate dehydrogenase is presented. This interpretation is based on the occurrence in heterozygote tissue extracts of five electrophoretically distinct enzymes. This is the predicted phenotype for tetramers composed of two types of subunits which associate randomly in heterozygotes forming three hybrid enzymes having mobilities intermediate between the parental forms. ...

Several isoforms have been identified that result from alternative splicing of the nNOS gene. Of these nNOS isoforms, nNOSα, nNOSβ, and nNOSγ are found in the brain (Huang et al., 1993;Brenman et al., 1996; Eliasson et al., 1997), but nNOSμ is found in skeletal muscle (Magee et al., 1996;Silvagno et al., 1996). nNOSμ results from the insertion of a 34 amino acid peptide between the CaM and FMN domains of the nNOSα sequence. As shown here, this insertion has measurable but modest effects on some of the biochemical properties of the enzyme.. The k cat andKm values for the oxidation ofl-Arg by the two isoforms, as suggested by the earlier study of the enzyme expressed in COS cells (Silvagno et al., 1996), are essentially identical. The presence (or absence) of the peptide insert therefore does not influence the binding or oxidation of l-Arg by the two nNOS isoforms. However, although both nNOSα and nNOSμ consume NADPH at a high rate in the absence of substrate, the NADPH consumption by ...

True values of Michaelis constants of the NADP+-specific isocitrate dehydrogenase from Halobacterium salinarium were not very different from those of the apparent constants reported by Aitken et al. (1970). The true constants were affected by salt in a similar manner to that of the apparent constants obtained with NADP+ at fixed concentrations of 1.0-0.2mm and threo-ds-(+)-isocitrate at fixed concentrations of 2.0-0.125mm. The response of apparent Vmax. to salt concentration was highly dependent on fixed substrate concentration in solutions of sodium chloride but much less so in solutions of potassium chloride. At several levels the results emphasize the difficulty of generalizing about the salt relations of a halophil enzyme without adequate attention to substrate concentration. The enzyme has at least two different reaction mechanisms depending on salt concentration. In its physiological form (i.e. in 1.0m-potassium chloride), and also in 1.0m-sodium chloride, the reaction mechanism is ...

On-line detection of substrate exhaustion by using NAD(P)H fluorescence. part 2 Starvation response of Saccharomyces cerevisiae grown in anaerobic nitrogen- or Carbon- limited chemostat cultures
The reinvestigation of the kinetics of myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity with the use of NADPH as a probe has allowed us to determine the effects of H2O2, Cl- ion and pH on the MPO-dependent production of HOCl. The chlorination rate of NADPH did not depend on NADPH concentration and was entirely related to the rate of production of HOCl by MPO. The overall oxidation of NADPH occurred similarly in the absence of O2 and was insensitive to scavengers of the superoxide radical anion. Experiments performed on the direct oxidation of NADPH by MPO in the presence and the absence of H2O2 showed that neither the rate nor the stoichiometry of the reaction could interfere in the NADPH oxidation process involved in the steady-state chlorination cycle. The oxidation of NADPH was characterized by a decrease in the A339 of the reduced nicotinamide with the concomitant appearance of a new chomophore with absorbance maximum at 274 nm, characterized by isosbestic points at 300 and 238 nm. The reaction product did ...

To better understand the energetic status of proliferating cells, we have measured the intracellular pH (pHi) and concentrations of key metabolites, such as adenosine triphosphate (ATP), nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP) in normal and cancer cells, extracted from fresh human colon tissues. Cells were sorted by elutriation and segregated in different phases of the cell cycle (G0/G1/S/G2/M) in order to study their redox (NAD, NADP) and bioenergetic (ATP, pHi) status. Our results show that the average ATP concentration over the cell cycle is higher and the pHi is globally more acidic in normal proliferating cells. The NAD+/NADH and NADP+/NADPH redox ratios are, respectively, five times and ten times higher in cancer cells compared to the normal cell population. These energetic differences in normal and cancer cells may explain the well-described mechanisms behind the Warburg effect. Oscillations in ATP concentration, pHi, NAD+/NADH, and NADP+
In general, the active sites of both classes of hydrogenases contain one free coordination position, which is most likely the catalytically relevant coordination position.[2] For the [NiFe] hydrogenases, which display a rich redox structure in which the nickel atom switches back and forth between the 3+ and 2+ redox state and the iron is 2+, low spin, a hydride ligand has been detected using HYSCORE spectroscopy,[4] which is direct evidence that the catalytic activity indeed occurs at the free coordination position of nickel. Presently, research emphasizes on improving the issue of oxygen sensitivity. In this respect the hydrogenases from extremophile organisms are promising candidates, since these enzymes are much more robust, oxygen insensitive and even function at elevated temperatures.. In a broader sense, besides the H-H bond, Nature often stores energy in chemical bonds of reduced molecules. Well known examples are, e.g., nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) or Nicotinamide adenine ...
Rational engineering studies for deoxycytidine production were initiated due to low intracellular levels and tight regulation. To achieve high-level production of deoxycytidine, a useful precursor of decitabine, genes related to feed-back inhibition as well as the biosynthetic pathway were engineered. Additionally, we predicted the impact of individual gene expression levels on a complex metabolic network by microarray analysis. Based on these findings, we demonstrated rational metabolic engineering strategies capable of producing deoxycytidine. To prepare the deoxycytidine producing strain, we first deleted 3 degradation enzymes in the salvage pathway (deoA, udp, and deoD) and 4 enzymes involved in the branching pathway (dcd, cdd, codA and thyA) to completely eliminate degradation of deoxycytidine. Second, purR, pepA and argR were knocked out to prevent feedback inhibition of CarAB. Third, to enhance influx to deoxycytidine, we investigated combinatorial expression of pyrG, T4 nrdCAB and yfbR.

Although EETs are weak activators of PPARα, the ω-hydroxylated derivatives of 11,12- and 14,15-EET are potent activators (22). These EETs derivatives are produced by CYP ω-oxidases, another class of CYP monooxygenases that utilize fatty acids as substrates. These enzymes insert a hydroxyl group at or near the methyl-terminal end of the fatty acid chain in a NADPH-dependent reaction (10).. 8,9-, 11,12-, and 14,15-EET are good substrates for CYP4A1 and CYP4A2 and are converted to 20-OH-EETs by these enzymes (22). The conversion of 14,15-EET to 20-OH-14,15-EET by a CYP ω-oxidase is illustrated in Fig. 2B. In a parinaric acid displacement assay used to measure the relative affinities of various compounds for the ligand-binding domain of PPARα, the Ki values for the EETs were between 22 and 46 nM. In contrast, the Ki value for 20-OH-14,15-EET was only 3 nM (22). Furthermore, in RK13 cells that overexpress either the human or mouse PPARα gene, 20-OH-14,15-EET increased PPARα-mediated gene ...
A method is described for the isolation of endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus from hyperplastic liver nodules produced by discontinuous feeding of 2-acetylaminofluorene to male Wistar rats. The procedure involves three centrifugation steps and permits the separation of these cell components and their subfractions from the same sample of liver tissue with as little as 1 g, wet weight. The fractions have been characterized by chemical, enzymatic, and morphological techniques and were found to be as pure as preparations from normal tissue. Furthermore, some of the characteristic histochemical features of hyperplastic liver nodules have been quantitated by biochemical methods in the fractions. Glucose-6-phosphatase activity in the endoplasmic reticulum subfractions of nodules is approximately 15% of the corresponding value in normal livers, whereas the activity of reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate: cytochrome c reductase is reduced to 85% of the normal activity. The amount ...
