1. Yurie Kinoshita, Jian Xu, Akitsu Masuda, Kosuke Minamihata, Noriho Kamiya, Hiroaki Mon, Ryosuke Fujita, Takahiro Kusakabe, Man Lee, Expression and purification of biologically active human granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (hGM-CSF) using silkworm-baculovirus expression vector system, Protein Expression and Purification, 10.1016/j.pep.2019.03.010, 159, 69-74, 2019.07, Human granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (hGM-CSF) is a hematopoietic growth factor. It is widely employed as a therapeutic agent targeting neutropenia in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and in patients with AIDS or after bone marrow transplantation. In this study, we constructed the recombinant baculoviruses for the expression of recombinant hGM-CSF (rhGM-CSF) with two small affinity tags (His-tag and Strep-tag) at the N or C-terminus. Compared to N-tagged rhGM-CSF, C-tagged rhGM-CSF was highly recovered from silkworm hemolymph. The purified rhGM-CSF proteins migrated as a diffuse band and were confirmed to hold N-glycosylations. A comparable activity was achieved when commercial hGM-CSF was tested as a control. Considering the high price of hGM-CSF in the market, our results and strategies using silkworm-baculovirus system can become a great reference for mass production of the active rhGM-CSF at a lower cost..

Mari Takahara, Rie Wakabayashi, Naoki Fujimoto, Kosuke Minamihata, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Enzymatic Cell-Surface Decoration with Proteins using Amphiphilic Lipid-Fused Peptide Substrates, Chemistry - A European Journal, 10.1002/chem.201900370, 25, 30, 7315-7321, 2019.05, Lipid modification of proteins plays a significant role in the activation of cellular signals such as proliferation. Thus, the demand for lipidated proteins is rising. However, getting a high yield and purity of lipidated proteins has been challenging. We developed a strategy for modifying proteins with a wide variety of synthetic lipids using microbial transglutaminase (MTG), which catalyzes the cross-linking reaction between a specific glutamine (Q) in a protein and lysine (K) in the lipid-fused peptide. The synthesized lipid-G3S-MRHKGS lipid (lipid: fatty acids, tocopherol, lithocholic acid, cholesterol) was successfully conjugated to a protein fused with LLQG (Q-tagged protein) by an MTG reaction, yielding >90 % conversion of the Q-tagged protein in a lipidated form. The purified lipid–protein conjugates were used for labeling the cell membrane in vitro, resulting in best-anchoring ability of cholesterol modification. Furthermore, in situ cell-surface decoration with the protein was established in a simple manner: subjection of cells to a mixture of cholesterol-fused peptides, Q-tagged proteins and MTG..
3. Patmawati, Kosuke Minamihata, Tsuneyuki Tatsuke, Man Lee, Takahiro Kusakabe, Noriho Kamiya, Functional horseradish peroxidase−streptavidin chimeric proteins prepared using a silkworm-baculovirus expression system for diagnostic purposes, Journal of Biotechnology, 10.1016/j.jbiotec.2019.03.007, 297, 28-31, 2019.05, Rapid, convenient, sensitive detection methods are of the utmost importance in analytical tools. Enzyme-based signal amplification using horseradish peroxidase (HRP) is commonly implemented in clinical diagnostics kits based on enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), by which the limit of detection is greatly improved. Herein we report the design and preparation of recombinant fusion proteins comprising HRP and streptavidin (Stav), in which HRP was fused to either the N- or C-terminus of Stav ((HRP)
–Stav or Stav–(HRP)
, respectively) using a baculovirus-silkworm expression system. Both (HRP)
–Stav and Stav–(HRP)
were secreted in the apo form but they were easily converted to the holo form and activated by simple incubation with hemin overnight at 4 °C. The activated (HRP)
–Stav and Stav–(HRP)
could be combined with a commercial biotinylated anti-OVA IgG antibody to detect ovalbumin (OVA) as the antigen in ELISA. The enzymatic activity of (HRP)
–Stav was twofold higher than that of Stav–(HRP)
, and the sensitivity of (HRP)
-Stav in ELISA was higher than that of a commercial HRP–Stav chemical conjugate. The successful use of (HRP)
–Stav chimeric protein as a molecular probe in ELISA shows that the baculovirus-silkworm expression system is promising to produce enzyme–Stav conjugates to substitute for those prepared by chemical methods..
4. Muhamad Alif Razi, Rie Wakabayashi, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Self-Assembled Reduced Albumin and Glycol Chitosan Nanoparticles for Paclitaxel Delivery, Langmuir, 10.1021/acs.langmuir.8b02809, 35, 7, 2610-2618, 2019.02, Cancer continues to pose health problems for people all over the world. Nanoparticles (NPs) have emerged as a promising platform for effective cancer chemotherapy. NPs formed by the assembly of proteins and chitosan (CH) through noncovalent interactions are attracting a great deal of interest. However, the poor water solubility of CH and low stability of this kind of NP limit its practical application. Herein, the formation of reduced bovine serum albumin (rBSA) and glycol chitosan (GC) nanoparticles (rBG-NPs) stabilized by hydrophobic interactions and disulfide bonds was demonstrated for paclitaxel (PTX) delivery. The effects of the rBSA:GC mass ratio and pH on the particle size, polydispersity index (PDI), number of particles, and surface charge were evaluated. The formation mechanism and stability of the NPs were determined by compositional analysis and dynamic light scattering. Hydrophobic and electrostatic interactions were the driving forces for the formation of the rBG-NPs, and the NPs were stable under physiological conditions. PTX was successfully encapsulated into rBG-NPs with a high encapsulation efficiency (90%). PTX-loaded rBG-NPs had a particle size of 400 nm with a low PDI (0.2) and positive charge. rBG-NPs could be internalized by HeLa cells, possibly via endocytosis. An in vitro cytotoxicity study revealed that PTX-loaded rBG-NPs had anticancer activity that was lower than that of a Taxol-like formulation at 24 h but had similar activity at 48 h, possibly because of the slow release of PTX into the cells. Our study suggests that rBG-NPs could be used as a potential nanocarrier for hydrophobic drugs..

Rie Wakabayashi, Ayumi Suehiro, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Designer aromatic peptide amphiphiles for self-assembly and enzymatic display of proteins with morphology control, Chemical Communications, 10.1039/C8CC08163H, 55, 5, 640-643, 2019.01, We herein designed bi-functional aromatic peptide amphiphiles both self-assembling to fibrous nanomaterials and working as a substrate of microbial transglutaminase, leading to peptidyl scaffolds with different morphologies that can be enzymatically post-functionalized with proteins..
6. Shuto Kozaka, Rie Wakabayashi, Onofrio Annunziata, Milan Balaz, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Sergei V. Dzyuba, Effect of macromolecular crowding on the conformational behaviour of a porphyrin rotor, Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology A: Chemistry, 10.1016/j.jphotochem.2018.10.006, 369, 115-118, 2019.01, Macromolecular crowding modulates the conformational preference of a small molecular rotor, which is used as a molecular viscometer. The shift towards the planar conformation of the porphyrin rotor was observed in the presence of increasing concentrations and sizes of polyethylene glycols. This observation highlights the differences between the behaviour of this molecular viscometer in the crowding and non-crowding types of media..
7. Safrina Dyah Hardiningtyas, Rie Wakabayashi, Ryutaro Ishiyama, Yuki Owada, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Enhanced potential of therapeutic applications of curcumin using solid-in-water nanodispersion technique, JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING OF JAPAN, 10.1252/jcej.18we060, 52, 1, 138-143, 2019.01, Curcumin (Cur), a hydrophobic polyphenol compound, holds promising potential as an anticancer agent. However, the poor solubility in water and the low bioavailability of curcumin have limited its therapeutic applications. In this regard, we reported the formulation of curcumin using a solid-in-water (S/W) nanodispersion technique to enhance the water solubility and therapeutic activity of curcumin. This new aqueous formulation comprises simple preparation protocols: emulsification and freeze-drying for encapsulating hydrophobic biomolecules with a hydrophilic surfactant, followed by redispersion of the resultant solid complexes in an aqueous solution. Pluronics F68 and F127 were used here for the encapsulation of curcumin. Enhanced aqueous solubility of curcumin was achieved by encapsulating curcumin with a hydrophilic surfactant using the S/W nanodispersion technique. The resultant nanosized formulation had a narrow size distribution and high entrapment efficiency of curcumin. The highest loading capacity of curcumin in S/W nanodispersion was obtained with a weight ratio of curcumin to pluronic of 1: 10 for both surfactants. The release profile of the complexes was found to depend on the type of surfactant, suggesting that the selection of a proper surfactant is crucial for controlling curcumin delivery. The anticancer activity of the S/W formulation of curcumin was correlated with the drug release profiles and cellular uptake, which in turn was influenced by the hydrophobicity and chemical structure of the surfactant..
8. Dani Permana, Kosuke Minamihata, Tsuneyuki Tatsuke, Jae M. Lee, Takahiro Kusakabe, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Polymerization of Horseradish Peroxidase by a Laccase-Catalyzed Tyrosine Coupling Reaction, Biotechnology Journal, 10.1002/biot.201800531, 2019.01, The polymerization of proteins can create newly active and large bio-macromolecular assemblies that exhibit unique functionalities depending on the properties of the building block proteins and the protein units in polymers. Herein, the first enzymatic polymerization of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) is reported. Recombinant HRPs fused with a tyrosine-tag (Y-tag) through a flexible linker at the N- and/or C-termini are expressed in silkworm, Bombyx mori. Trametes sp. laccase (TL) is used to activate the tyrosine of Y-tagged HRPs with molecular O
to form a tyrosyl-free radical, which initiates the tyrosine coupling reaction between the HRP units. A covalent dityrosine linkage is also formed through a HRP-catalyzed self-crosslinking reaction in the presence of H
. The addition of H
in the self-polymerization of Y-tagged HRPs results in lower activity of the HRP polymers, whereas TL provides site-selectivity, mild reaction conditions and maintains the activity of the polymeric products. The cocrosslinking of Y-tagged HRPs and HRP-protein G (Y-HRP-pG) units catalyzed by TL shows a higher signal in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) than the genetically pG-fused HRP, Y-HRP-pG, and its polymers. This new enzymatic polymerization of HRP promises to provide highly active and functionalized polymers for biomedical applications and diagnostics probes..
9. Noriho Kamiya, Yuki Ohama, Kosuke Minamihata, Rie Wakabayashi, Masahiro Goto, Liquid Marbles as an Easy-to-Handle Compartment for Cell-Free Synthesis and In Situ Immobilization of Recombinant Proteins, Biotechnology Journal, 10.1002/biot.201800085, 13, 12, 2018.12, Liquid marble (LM), a self-standing micro-scale aqueous droplet, emerges as a micro-bioreactor in biological applications. Herein, the potential of LM as media for cell-free synthesis and simultaneous immobilization of recombinant proteins is explored. Initially, formation of hydrogel marble (HM) by using an enzymatic disulfide-based hydrogelation technique is confirmed by incorporating three components, horseradish peroxidase (HRP), a tetra-thiolated poly(ethylene glycol) derivative, and glycyl-L-tyrosine, in LM. The compatibility of the enzymatic hydrogelation with cell-free protein synthesis in LM is then validated. Although the hydrogelation reduces the level of protein synthesis in LM when compared with that in a test tube, the biosynthesis of enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) is achieved. Interestingly, EGFP synthesized in LM is entrapped in the HM, and the introduction of a cysteine residue to EGFP by genetic engineering further increases the amount of protein immobilization in the hydrogel matrices. These results suggest that the cell-free synthesis and HRP-catalyzed hydrogelation can be conducted in parallel in LM, and the eventual entrapment of the key components in HM is possible. Facile recovery of macromolecular products immobilized in HM by degrading the hydrogel network under reducing conditions should lead to the design of an easy-to-handle system to screen protein functions..
10. Dani Permana, Kosuke Minamihata, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Laccase-catalyzed bioconjugation of tyrosine-tagged functional proteins, Journal of Bioscience and Bioengineering, 10.1016/j.jbiosc.2018.05.013, 126, 5, 559-566, 2018.11, The site-specific cross-linking of functional proteins creates macromolecular assemblies that exhibit unique biochemical and/or physicochemical properties. Herein, we explored the potential of laccase as a biocatalyst for the site-specific cross-linking of tyrosine-tagged proteins. Trametes sp. laccase (TL) was selected as the cross-linking catalyst, and Escherichia coli alkaline phosphatase (BAP) and antibody-binding proteins (pG2pAs) were employed as model proteins. The protein models were genetically fused to a peptide tag containing a tyrosine residue (Y-tag) at the N- and/or C-termini. Proteins without Y-tags were used as controls. The Y-tagged proteins could be recognized by TL as macromolecular substrates, leading to the oxidative formation of protein polymers, whereas no polymerization was observed with intact BAP or pG2pA. The TL-catalyzed cross-linking of Y-tagged proteins proceeded at a relatively high pH in comparison with that of small phenolic substrates. Co-polymers of BAP and pG2pA were able to be prepared by mixing the aqueous solution of each component in the presence of TL. A combination of bis-Y-tagged pG2pA (Y-pG2pA-Y) and Y-tagged BAP (BAP-Y) yielded functional co-polymers compatible with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The detection limit of the ELISA of ovalbumin with anti-OVA IgG depended on the molar ratio of BAP-Y and Y-pG2pA-Y in the TL-catalyzed cross-linking reaction. A high molar ratio of BAP-Y to Y-pG2pA-Y (75:1) resulted in the highest absorbance in the ELISA. The results suggested that the formation of a bifunctional protein polymer with a high molar ratio of signaling unit to antibody-binding unit gave better performance in antigen detection than using lower ratios..
11. Mari Takahara, Rie Wakabayashi, Kosuke Minamihata, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Design of Lipid-Protein Conjugates Using Amphiphilic Peptide Substrates of Microbial Transglutaminase, ACS App. Bio Mater., 10.1021/acsabm.8b00271, 1, 6, 1823-1829, 2018.10, Lipid modification of proteins plays a significant role in the activation of cellular signals such as proliferation. Thus, the demand for lipidated proteins is rising. However, getting a high yield and purity of lipidated proteins has been challenging. We developed a strategy for modifying proteins with a wide variety of synthetic lipids using microbial transglutaminase (MTG), which catalyzes the cross-linking reaction between a specific glutamine (Q) in a protein and lysine (K) in the lipid-fused peptide. The synthesized lipid-G3S-MRHKGS lipid (lipid: fatty acids, tocopherol, lithocholic acid, cholesterol) was successfully conjugated to a protein fused with LLQG (Q-tagged protein) by an MTG reaction, yielding >90 % conversion of the Q-tagged protein in a lipidated form. The purified lipid–protein conjugates were used for labeling the cell membrane in vitro, resulting in best-anchoring ability of cholesterol modification. Furthermore, in situ cell-surface decoration with the protein was established in a simple manner: subjection of cells to a mixture of cholesterol-fused peptides, Q-tagged proteins and MTG..
12. Safrina Dyah Hardiningtyas, Rie Wakabayashi, Momoko Kitaoka, Yoshiro Tahara, Kosuke Minamihata, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Mechanistic investigation of transcutaneous protein delivery using solid-in-oil nanodispersion
A case study with phycocyanin, European Journal of Pharmaceutics and Biopharmaceutics, 10.1016/j.ejpb.2018.01.020, 127, 44-50, 2018.06, Phycocyanin (PC), a water-soluble protein-chromophore complex composed of hexameric (αβ)6 subunits, has important biological functions in blue-green algae as well as pharmacological activities in biomedicine. We have previously developed a solid-in-oil (S/O) nanodispersion method to deliver biomacromolecules through the skin, although the transcutaneous mechanism has not yet been fully elucidated. To study the mechanism of transcutaneous protein delivery, we therefore enabled S/O nanodispersion by coating PC with hydrophobic surfactants and evaluated how the proteinaceous macromolecules formulated in an oil phase might permeate the skin. The extent of S/O nanodispersion of PC was dependent on the type of surfactant, suggesting that the selection of a suitable surfactant is crucial for encapsulating a large protein having a subunit structure. By measuring the intrinsic fluorescence of PC, we found that S/O nanodispersion facilitated the accumulation of PC in the stratum corneum (SC) of Yucatan micropig skin. Furthermore, after crossing the SC layer, the fluorescent recovery of PC was evident, indicating the release of the biologically active form of PC from the SC into the deeper skin layer..

Akitsu Masuda, Jian Xu, Kosuke Minamihata, Genki Kagawa, Yusei Hamada, Yoshiki Morifuji, Takumi Yano, Masato Hino, Daisuke Morokuma, Noriko Karasaki, Hiroaki Mon, Noriho Kamiya, Takahiro Kusakabe, Jae Man Lee, Production of a biologically active human basic fibroblast growth factor using silkworm-baculovirus expression vector system, Journal of Asia-Pacific Entomology, 10.1016/j.aspen.2018.05.002, 21, 2, 716-720, 2018.06, As a therapeutic treatment, recombinant human basic fibroblast growth factor (rhbFGF) is usually employed in tissue regeneration, and as an essential component in culture medium for maintaining the induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell and embryonic stem (ES) cell in an undifferentiated state. Therefore, a large amount of biologically active rhbFGF is required. In this study, silkworm-baculovirus expression vector system (silkworm-BEVS) is employed to achieve a high productivity of recombinant rhbFGF with two small affinity tags (His-tag and STREP-tag) at the N or C-terminus. It is observed that rhbFGF with 30 K signal peptide of silkworm were successfully expressed but are not sufficiently secreted into the culture medium of cultured insect cells. Then we purified the N- or C-tagged intracellular rhbFGF protein and obtained a yield of about 0.7 mg/larva and 1.2 mg/larva, respectively. Although the final yield of the C-tagged rhbFGF is higher than that of the N-tagged, rhbFGF with N-tag demonstrated promising and comparable biological activity, which is evaluated through a mammalian cell proliferation assay. Taken together, these results indicate that silkworm-BEVS could contribute to the mass-production of the biologically active rhbFGF for medical uses..

15. Md Raihan Chowdhury, Rahman Md Moshikur, Rie Wakabayashi, Yoshiro Tahara, Noriho Kamiya, Muhammad Moniruzzaman, Masahiro Goto, Ionic-Liquid-Based Paclitaxel Preparation
A New Potential Formulation for Cancer Treatment, Molecular pharmaceutics, 10.1021/acs.molpharmaceut.8b00305, 15, 6, 2484-2488, 2018.06, Paclitaxel (PTX) injection (i.e., Taxol) has been used as an effective chemotherapeutic treatment for various cancers. However, the current Taxol formulation contains Cremophor EL, which causes hypersensitivity reactions during intravenous administration and precipitation by aqueous dilution. This communication reports the preliminary results on the ionic liquid (IL)-based PTX formulations developed to address the aforementioned issues. The formulations were composed of PTX/cholinium amino acid ILs/ethanol/Tween-80/water. A significant enhancement in the solubility of PTX was observed with considerable correlation with the density and viscosity of the ILs, and with the side chain of the amino acids used as anions in the ILs. Moreover, the formulations were stable for up to 3 months. The driving force for the stability of the formulation was hypothesized to be the involvement of different types of interactions between the IL and PTX. In vitro cytotoxicity and antitumor activity of the IL-based formulations were evaluated on HeLa cells. The IL vehicles without PTX were found to be less cytotoxic than Taxol, while both the IL-based PTX formulation and Taxol exhibited similar antitumor activity. Finally, in vitro hypersensitivity reactions were evaluated on THP-1 cells and found to be significantly lower with the IL-based formulation than Taxol. This study demonstrated that specially designed ILs could provide a potentially safer alternative to Cremophor EL as an effective PTX formulation for cancer treatment giving fewer hypersensitivity reactions..
16. Muhamad Alif Razi, Rie Wakabayashi, Yoshiro Tahara, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Genipin-stabilized caseinatehitosan nanoparticles for enhanced stability and anti-cancer activity of curcumin, Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, 10.1016/j.colsurfb.2018.01.041, 164, 308-315, 2018.04, Nanoparticles formed by the assembly of protein and polysaccharides are of great interest for the delivery of hydrophobic molecules. Herein, the formation of genipin-crosslinked nanoparticles from caseinate (CS) and chitosan (CH) is reported for the delivery of curcumin, a polyphenolic compound from turmeric, to cells. Genipin-crosslinked CS-CH nanoparticles (G-CCNPs) having a diameter of ∼250 nm and a low polydispersity index showed excellent stability over a wide pH range, as indicated by dynamic light scattering and transmission electron microscopic measurements. Cellular uptake of curcumin loaded into G-CCNPs by HeLa cells was improved, as measured by confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) and fluorescence-activated cell-sorting analysis. Cell proliferation assays indicated that G-CCNPs were nontoxic and that curcumin's anticancer activity in vitro was also improved by G-CCNPs. Stability of curcumin at neutral pH was enhanced by G-CCNPs. CLSM study revealed that G-CCNPs were poorly internalized by HeLa cells, possibly because of strong cell membrane interactions and a negative zeta potential. Overall, our results suggested that the enhanced curcumin cytotoxicity might be associated with the enhanced stability of curcumin by G-CCNPs and free curcumin released from G-CCNPs into the cell. These biocompatible NPs might be suitable carriers for enhancing curcumin's therapeutic potential..
17. Geisa A.L.G. Budinova, Yutaro Mori, Tsutomu Tanaka, Noriho Kamiya, Casein-based scaffold for artificial cellulosome design, Process Biochemistry, 10.1016/j.procbio.2017.12.013, 66, 140-145, 2018.03, Cellulosomal systems are known as highly efficient biocatalysts in the degradation of lignocellulosic biomass in nature, but they remain unsuitable for industrial applications. In seeking alternatives to natural cellulosomes, casein was chosen as a scaffold for cellulase clustering. Casein is recognized as an excellent substrate for microbial transglutaminase (MTG) because it contains naturally reactive glutamine and lysine residues. A substrate peptide containing an MTG-reactive lysine residue was inserted into the C-terminus of the endoglucanase Cel5A and Cel6A from Thermobifida fusca using genetic engineering. The engineered cellulases, EG(Cel5A) and EG(Cel6A), were conjugated onto casein in different ratios by an MTG-mediated site-specific protein crosslinking reaction. Overall, a more than two-fold increase was observed when EG(Cel5A) was conjugated onto N,N-dimethylcasein, but a small or no change was observed for EG(Cel6A)..
18. Rie Wakabayashi, Masato Sakuragi, Shuto Kozaka, Yoshiro Tahara, Noriho Kamiya, Masahiro Goto, Solid-in-Oil Peptide Nanocarriers for Transcutaneous Cancer Vaccine Delivery against Melanoma, Molecular Pharmaceutics, 10.1021/acs.molpharmaceut.7b00894, 15, 3, 955-961, 2018.03, Cancer vaccines represent a prophylactic or therapeutic method of suppressing cancer by activating the adaptive immune system. The immune response is initiated by the delivery of tumor antigens to antigen presenting cells (APCs). The use of peptides as vaccine antigens is advantageous, especially in the availability and productivity of pure and defined antigens. However, their limited immunogenicity remains a major drawback, and therefore, the utilization of nanocarriers as a means of delivering antigens to target cells and/or the addition of immune stimulants have been investigated as an efficient peptide-based cancer vaccine. We have developed a solid-in-oil (S/O) nanodispersion as a transcutaneous nanocarrier for hydrophilic molecules. This system has attractive features as a peptide nanocarrier for cancer vaccines, including transcutaneous targeting of professional APCs in the skin, high encapsulation efficacy of hydrophilic molecules, and capacity for coloading with a variety of immune stimulants such as adjuvants. We therefore sought to utilize the developed S/O nanodispersion for the delivery of the tyrosine-related protein 2 peptide, TRP-2180-188, as a peptide antigen against melanoma. Transcutaneous vaccination of the S/O nanodispersion coloaded with adjuvant R-848 was associated with a significant inhibition of melanoma growth and suppression of lung metastasis in tumor-bearing mice. Our findings indicate the potential of S/O nanodispersions as an endogenous peptide carrier for cancer vaccines..
19. Muhamad Alif Razi, Rie Wakabayashi, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Formation and characterization of caseinate-chitosan nanocomplexes for encapsulation of Curcumin, JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING OF JAPAN, 10.1252/jcej.17we293, 51, 5, 445-453, 2018.01, Curcumin holds promise as a therapeutic agent due to its capability of conferring several pharmacological activities. While curcumin shows efficacy in preclinical studies as an anti-cancer agent, its translation into the clinic as a drug has yet to be realized. One possible reason is its poor solubility and stability in water, which decreases the bioavailability. Here, we report the formation of biocompatible nanocomplexes (NCs) from caseinate (CS) and chitosan (CH) using an electrostatic interaction-based approach to stabilize and enhance water solubility of curcumin. The formation of CS-CH NCs (CCNCs) was studied as a function of CH concentration. We show that positively charged NCs, having size between approx. 250 nm with a narrow distribution was formed by adjusting CH concentration. CCNCs successfully entrapped curcumin with a high entrapment efficiency. Curcumin was possibly located in a hydrophobic region of CS as indicated by a blue-shift in the emission maxima of curcumin. Ultimately, the stability and water solubility of curcumin in CCNCs could be remarkably enhanced. These results suggest that CCNCs would be useful for increasing the potential of curcumin as a preventive or therapeutic agent..
20. Akitsu Masuda, Kosuke Minamihata, Masato Hino, Daisuke Morokuma, Noriko Karasaki, Hiroaki Mon, Noriho Kamiya, Takahiro Kusakabe, Man Lee, Modular surface display for porcine circovirus type 2 virus-like particles mediated by microbial transglutaminase, Journal of Insect Biotechnology and Sericology, 10.11416/jibs.87.2_053, 87, 2, 53-60, 2018.01, Virus-like particles (VLPs) are multi-protein complex, which mimic viral particles without viral genomes. Recently various applications of VLPs for medical and pharmaceutical fields are developed. Furthermore, surface modification of VLPs is expected to extend their functional versatility. As an enzymatic strategy for the modification, microbial transglutaminase (MTG) that catalyzes the covalent bond between a glutamine residue and a ly-sine residue or a primary amine is suitable for efficient protein ligation. In the previous study, we demonstrated the efficient production of immunogenic VLPs of porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) using silkworm-baculovirus expression vector system (silkworm-BEVS). Herein, we established the display system of exotic molecules to VLPs by enzymatic covalent cross-linking using MTG. For the target modification, Q-tag (YPLQMRG) that is MTG reactive sequence were introduced into the N-terminus, C-terminus, or loop BC of capsid protein of PCV2 and successfully expressed as VLPs in silkworm pupae. Of these, PCV2 VLPs with Q-tag at the loop BC and C-terminus were efficiently conjugated with FITC-cadaverine and K-tagged (MRHKGS) EGFP by MTG. These results showed that flexible surface modification of VLPs mediated by MTG could be used for development of several therapeutic tools such as multivalent vaccines..
21. Lili Jia, Kosuke Minamihata, Hirofumi Ichinose, Kouhei Tsumoto, Noriho Kamiya, Polymeric SpyCatcher Scaffold Enables Bioconjugation in a Ratio-Controllable Manner, Biotechnology Journal, 10.1002/biot.201700195, 12, 12, 2017.12, Conjugating enzymes into a large protein assembly often results in an enhancement of overall catalytic activity, especially when different types of enzymes that work cooperatively are assembled together. However, exploring the proper method to achieve protein assemblies with high stability and also to avoid loss of the function of each component for efficient enzyme clustering is remained challenging. Assembling proteins onto synthetic scaffolds through varied post-translational modification methods is particularly favored since the proteins can be site-specifically conjugated together with less activity loss. Here, a SpyCatcher polymer is prepared through catalytic reaction of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and serves as a polymeric proteinaceous scaffold for construction of protein assemblies. Taking advantage of the favorable SpyCatcher–SpyTag interaction, SpyTagged proteins can be easily assembled onto the polymeric SpyCatcher scaffold with controllable binding ratio and site specificity. Firstly, the feasibility of construction of ratio-controllable binary artificial hemicellulosomes by assembling endoxylanase and arabinofuranosidase is explored. This construct achieves higher sugar conversion than that of the free enzymes when the proportion of arabinofuranosidase is high, because the close spatial proximity of the enzymes allows them to work in a synergistic manner. Another application for biosensing is developed by conjugating SpyTagged Nanoluc and protein G onto SpyCatcher polymer. Due to the protein clustering effect, an amplified luminescent intensity is achieved by the resulting conjugates than chimera protein of Nanoluc and protein G in ovalbumin detection in ELISA..
22. Mari Takahara, Rie Wakabayashi, Kosuke Minamihata, Masahiro Goto, Noriho Kamiya, Primary Amine-Clustered DNA Aptamer for DNA-Protein Conjugation Catalyzed by Microbial Transglutaminase, Bioconjugate Chemistry, 10.1021/acs.bioconjchem.7b00594, 28, 12, 2954-2961, 2017.12, DNA-protein conjugates are promising biomolecules for use in areas ranging from therapeutics to analysis because of the dual functionalities of DNA and protein. Conjugation requires site-specific and efficient covalent bond formation without impairing the activity of both biomolecules. Herein, we have focused on the use of a microbial transglutaminase (MTG) that catalyzes the cross-linking reaction between a glutamine residue and a primary amine. In a model bioconjugation, a highly MTG-reactive Gln (Q)-donor peptide (FYPLQMRG, FQ) was fused to enhanced green fluorescent protein (FQ-EGFP) and a primary amine-clustered DNA aptamer was enzymatically synthesized as a novel acyl-acceptor substrate of MTG, whose combination leads to efficient and convenient preparation of DNA-protein conjugates with high purity. Dual functionality of the obtained DNA-EGFP conjugate was evaluated by discrimination of cancer cells via c-Met receptor recognition ability of the DNA aptamer. The DNA aptamer-EGFP conjugate only showed fluorescence toward cells with c-Met overexpression, indicating the retention of the biochemical properties of the DNA and EGFP in the conjugated form..

Limited numbers of patients receive curative immunotherapy instead of symptomatic therapy; however, there are still some concerns about the inconvenience and side effects of subcutaneous injections and sublingual administration caused by immunotherapy. Here, we propose a simple and safe transcutaneous immunotherapy using solid-in-oil (S/O) nanodispersions loaded with vaccine T cell epitope peptides derived from pollen allergen. S/O nanodispersions are oil-based dispersions of antigens coated with hydrophobic surfactants. They have a high potential to deliver biomolecules including peptides or proteins to immune cells in the skin, and to induce an immune response. The result of quantitative and qualitative analysis by in vitro permeation experiments demonstrated the effective permeation of T cell epitope peptides into the skin. Furthermore, in vivo experiments using a pollinosis mouse model indicated that the S/O nanodispersions loaded with T cell epitopes suppressed serum antibody IgE and cytokine production, and alleviated allergic symptoms to a similar therapeutic level to that observed for subcutaneous injection. These results indicate the potential of transcutaneous immunotherapy using S/O nanodispersions for the future treatment of pollinosis..

In this study, the effects of four kinds of ILs for pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomass such as bagasse, eucalyptus, and cedar were evaluated. In direct ethanol fermentation from biomass incorporated with ILs by cellulase-displaying yeast, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([Bmim][OAc]) was the most effective IL. The ethanol production and yield from [Bmim][OAc]-pretreated bagasse reached 0.81 g/L and 73.4% of the theoretical yield after fermentation for 96 h. The results prove the initial concept, in which the direct fermentation from lignocellulosic biomass effectively promoted by the pretreatment with IL..

Hideki Tatsukawa, Hong Hong Liu, Shota Oba, Noriho Kamiya, Yoichi Nakanishi, Kiyotaka Hitomi, FRET-based detection of isozyme-specific activities of transglutaminases, Amino Acids, 10.1007/s00726-016-2322-0, 49, 3, 615-623, 2017, Transglutaminases (TGs) comprise a protein family in which the members catalyze the formation of isopeptide bonds between glutamine and lysine residues in various proteins. Expression studies on its three major members, FXIII, TG1, and TG2, have been performed in a relatively large number of mammalian tissues in comparison with those on the other isozymes. We previously identified a highly reactive substrate peptide, including glutamine, for each isozyme from a phage display library and developed a method for detecting isozyme-specific activities by incorporating a labeled substrate peptide into lysine residues of proteins. Here, we describe genetically encoded Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based probes composed of each fluorescence protein (Cerulean and EVenus) fused with substrate peptides. The probe pairs, designated as Trac-MTG (His-CerΔ11-LQ/EV-K-His) containing linker and substrate peptide sequence for microbial TG (MTG), increased the EVenus:Cerulean fluorescence intensity ratio by more than 1.5-fold. Furthermore, we demonstrated that Trac-TG1 (His-CerΔ11-K5) and Trac-TG2 (His-CerΔ11-T26) containing substrate peptide sequence for mammalian TGs successfully detected the isozyme-specific activity of TG1 and TG2, respectively. In this study, we developed a rapid and convenient experimental system for measuring the isozyme-specific activity of TGs. The application of these probes for analyses in cells and tissues will be helpful for elucidating the physiological and pathological functions of TGs..

Syst. Des. Eng., 10.1039/C6ME90005D, 1, 1, 66-73, 2016.04, In biological systems, proteins can form well-organized, higher-order structures with unique functions that would be difficult to achieve with a single protein. These proteinaceous supramolecular structures form by self-assembly, and the spatial arrangement of the protein building blocks in them is very important. In the present study, an artificial system was developed using recombinant proteins as building blocks, which were assembled in a one-dimensional manner. The assembly of these building blocks was based on the avidin-biotin interaction. A tetrameric biotin ligand unit was designed so that the 1:4 stoichiometry of the avidin-biotin interaction was altered to a 1:2 directional interaction between the streptavidin and tetrabiotinylated protein units. In a proof-of-concept study, site-specifically tetrabiotin-labeled endoglucanase and cellulose-binding module units were prepared, then these components were self-assembled by mixing with streptavidin to mimic a natural cellulosome. The formation of one-dimensional assemblies of the protein units depended on the stoichiometry of the avidin-biotin interaction sites in the system. Interestingly, the saccharification efficiency improved when the component ratio of protein units in the assemblies was changed..
