    Several immune-related genes, including Toll-like receptors (TLR), are associated with circadian rhythms in mammals. However, information on the circadian rhythmic expression of TLRs in fish is limited. In this study, we aimed to analyze the regulation of diel oscillations in the expression of TLR genes in Japanese medaka (Oryzias latipes). The expression analysis revealed diel expression patterns of tlr1, tlr5m, tlr21, and clock genes (bmal1 and clock1) under a 12 h light:12 h dark cycle. The clock gene response element (E-box) was identified in the transcriptional regulatory regions of tlr1, tlr5m, and tlr21. Moreover, overexpressed bmal1 and clock1 enhanced expression levels of tlr1, tlr5m, and tlr21 in medaka embryo (OLHdrR-e3) cells. The expression of tlr1, tlr5m, and tlr21 was significantly decreased in OLHdrR-e3 after generating a bmal1 knockdown using a morpholino oligo. These results indicate the regulation of the diel rhythmic expression of several fish TLRs by clock genes.

    Teleosts and elasmobranchs are the lowest vertebrates that possess adaptive immunity akin to mammalian ones. However, the fish immune system is different from that of mammals, that is, a lack of bone marrow, lymph nodes and germinal center. Their immune system is also characterized by the fact that their surface is covered by live cells with mucus in direct contact with environmental water and the fact that the immune response is greatly affected by temperature. In this review we will describe the current understanding of the teleost immune system from a comparative viewpoint. We will also discuss the regulation of immune response by internal and external factors, since fish aquaculture is growing enormously worldwide, and understanding of the immune system is important for the development of immunological control of fish diseases.

    細胞の機能解析やウイルスの研究を行うにあたり株化細胞の存在は必須である。1980年代中頃からエビ類においても長期培養可能な細胞株の樹立が試みられてきたが、未だ実現していない。本研究は、これまで試みが行われなかったエビ類の細胞の長期培養に最適なサプリメントの作製から、ヒトの株化細胞(ES細胞やiPS細胞)作製過程で使用されている最新技術(フィーダー細胞や遺伝子導入)を取り入れてクルマエビの細胞を株化させるまでを体系立てて行い、長期間培養可能または無限増殖能を持つエビ類の株化細胞を樹立することを目的としている。本研究は、応募者らが得意とする海産動物の細胞培養技術および最先端の遺伝子操作技術を駆使するエビ類初の挑戦的な内容となっており、エビ類の株化細胞樹立に成功すれば、エビ類の免疫・神経・内分泌系に関する基礎/応用研究が飛躍的に進むと思われる。さらに、産業レベルでは、現在、有効な疾病防除法がないエビ養殖におけるウイルス疾病蔓延・大量死といった問題解決への道が開ける可能性を秘めている。また、株化細胞を用いてエビの生体分子の機能解析が可能となり、無脊椎動物の細胞生物学に関する種々の知見を得る足掛かりとなる。

    養殖場重要魚種において魚病細菌による疾病発生状況は毎年甚大であり、その対策が急務である。これまで、魚病細菌感染症に対してリポ多糖(LPS)の免疫賦活効果が高いにもかかわらず、魚類における分子メカニズムは殆ど理解されてこなかった。そこで申請者は、LPSを認識する機構を明らかにすることで、細菌感染を防御する重要な遺伝子を特定することができると考えた。また、ノックアウト(KO)メダカを使用することでLPS認識メカニズムをより分かりやすく解明し、有用遺伝子を特定する。さらに、当該遺伝子を遺伝子アジュバントとして利用することで、これまでにないワクチン効果を発揮させる新規アジュバントの構築を試みる。
