Arihiro Kano, Takuma Iwasaki, Mitsuru Shindo, Bongkrekic acid facilitates glycolysis in cultured cells and induces cell death under low glucose conditions, Biochemistry and Biophysics Reports, 10.1016/j.bbrep.2019.100683, 20, 2019.12, Bongkrekic acid (BKA) inhibits adenine nucleotide translocator (ANT) and suppresses ADP/ATP exchange in the mitochondrial inner membrane. Previously, we demonstrated that BKA exhibited cytotoxic effects on 4T1 tumor cells, depending on the cell number in the culture, but not on NIH3T3 cells. However, the cause of this differential sensitivity was unelucidated. Here we demonstrate that BKA reduced the O2 consumption in both cell lines and increased the mitochondrial membrane potential, thereby facilitating glucose consumption. BKA reduced cellular ATP in 4T1 cells in a dose-dependent manner but not in NIH3T3 cells. The cellular ATP of 4T1 cells was decreased with a reduced glucose concentration in the media, but that of NIH3T3 cells remained constant. We also demonstrated that BKA-induced cell death in both cell lines in low glucose media; however, the susceptibility to the reduced glucose concentration was slightly higher in 4T1 cells, which may be attributed to the difference in the dependency on glycolysis as their energy source. These results indicate that 4T1 tumor cells rely heavily on glucose for energy production. Our data demonstrate that BKA disturbs ATP production in mitochondria and increases the susceptibility to a low glucose condition..
4. Mitsuru Shindo, Saki Makigawa, Kenji Matsumoto, Takayuki Iwata, Naoya Wasano, Arihiro Kano, Miyo Terao Morita, Yoshiharu Fujii, Essential structural features of (2Z,4E)-5-phenylpenta-2,4-dienoic acid for inhibition of root gravitropism, Phytochemistry, 10.1016/j.phytochem.2020.112287, 172, 2020.04, Previously, we found (2Z,4E)-5-phenylpenta-2,4-dienoic acid (ku-76) to be a selective inhibitor of root gravitropic bending of lettuce radicles at 5 μM, with no concomitant growth inhibition. Here, we describe a structure-activity relationship study of ku-76 to determine the essential structural features for the inhibitory activity. A series of ku-76 analogues was synthesized and the key features of ku-76 that are necessary for inhibition of lettuce root gravitropic bending were determined. The (2E,4E)-, (2Z,4Z)- (2E,4Z)- analogues were inactive, and 4,5-saturated and 4,5-alkynyl analogues also did not show inhibitory activity, demonstrating the importance of the (2Z,4E) diene unit. The aromatic ring was also crucial and could not be replaced with an alkyl chain. Derivatives in which the carboxylic acid was replaced with amides, alcohols, or esters were much less potent. These results suggest that the (2Z,4E)-diene, the carboxylic acid moiety, and the aromatic ring are essential for potent inhibitory activity against gravitropic bending..

We designed and synthesized simplified benzene-ring-containing BKA analogs. The key reaction is the one-pot double Sonogashira reaction, which forms the main skeleton. The analogs were efficiently synthesized in 8–10 longest linear sequence steps. This synthetic method can be applied for the preparation of other analogs having different combinations of carbon chain lengths. Furthermore, the allyloxy group on the benzene ring can be easily replaced by other functional groups. Our preliminary biological evaluation based on mitochondrial inhibitory effects revealed the high potency of the analogs bearing the same carbon chain length as that of BKA. In particular, the prefunctionalized analogs are potential ANT inhibitors..
6. Arihiro Kano, Moses Kibunja Kamita, Takuma Iwasaki, Mitsuru Shindo, Bongkrekic Acid induces Selective Cytotoxicity in Tumor Cells, revealed by CCK-8, Evergreen, 04, 02/03, 23-27, 2017.09, Bongkrekic acid (BKA) is shown to inhibit adenine nucleotide translocator in the mitochondrial inner membrane, which is bifunctional and facilitates ATP/ADP exchange and permeability transition pore opening in mitochondria. We demonstrate that BKA reduces the viability of tumor cells depending on the cell number in the culture. This reduction was first demonstrated by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8), which indicates cellular viabilities based on the reduction of a formazan dye by cellular NADH. Reduced viability was not seen in normal cells. The glycolysis inhibitor 2-deoxyglucose enhanced the effect of BKA. BKA is thought to work as a mitochondrial inhibitor; however, its action is different from mitochondrial uncouplers. We further demonstrate that BKA suppresses autophagy induction, directing cells to death in nutrient-depleted conditions. Together these data indicate that BKA is a new type of mitochondrial inhibitor that does not disrupt the mitochondrial membrane and that is thus used together with a glycolysis inhibitor as an anticancer agent..
7. Moses Kamita, Mitsuru Shindo, Arihiro Kano, Macrophage Colony-Stimulating Factor mediates its Immunosuppressive Activity through the Emerging Myeloid Cells during Tumor Progression, Evergreen, 04, 02/03, 18-22, 2017.09, Mechanisms by which tumors evade immune surveillance remain to be addressed. In our previous study, we reported that murine mammary tumor (4T1) cells secrete immunosuppressive soluble factor(s), which was identified to be a 10-100 kDa protein. In the current study, we report that analysis of the proteins in the active fractions revealed the presence of macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) as one of the suppressive factors secreted by 4T1 tumor cells. Although previously identified as a cytokine that regulates survival, proliferation, and differentiation of macrophages and monocytes, M-CSF has also been associated with tumor progression and metastasis. To date, the immunosuppressive activity of M-CSF is not well understood. To better understand the immunosuppressive activity of M-CSF, we studied the activity of recombinant murine M-CSF in splenocytes isolated from 4T1 tumor-bearing mice. Reduced levels of interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) by M-CSF were observed in a dose-dependent manner indicating suppressive activities of M-CSF on the T-cell activation. M-CSF reduces the secretion of IFN-γ without affecting its intracellular protein expression. The suppressive activity of M-CSF is dependent on the length of days after tumor inoculation as no activity was observed in splenocytes from one-week tumor-bearing mice. This phenomenon correlates with an increase in the number of myeloid cells in the spleen during tumor progression. The suppressive activity of M-CSF is thus thought to be mediated by the myeloid cells emerging during tumor growth..
8. Hiroshi Fukuda, 西川 慶祐, 福永 幸裕, 奥田 勝博, kenji matsumoto, Arihiro Kano, 新藤 充, Synthesis of fluorescent molecular probes based on cis-cinnamic acid and molecular imaging of lettuce roots, Tetrahedron, 10.1016/j.tet.2016.08.060, 72, 6492-6498, 2016.10, We synthesized azo dye- and fluorescence-labeled cis-cinnamic acid analogues possessing inhibitory activity against lettuce root growth and a trans-isomer without bioactivity as a control probe. The radicles incubated with the azo dye-labeled analogue were stained red, with their tips especially deeply dyed. The fluorescent images of the radicles incubated with each of these molecular probes depicted that the root cap was fluorescence-stained. However, images of the control radicles prepared by staining with
the trans-isomer fluorescent probe did not show emission at the root cap. These contrasts suggest specific localization of the cis-cinnamate analogue at the columella cells.

9. kenji matsumoto, 奥田 勝博, 福永 幸裕, Arihiro Kano, 新藤 充, Efficient Total Synthesis of Bongkrekic Acid and Apoptosis Inhibitory Activity of Its Analogues, CHEMISTRY-A EUROPEAN JOURNAL, 10.1002/chem.201501304, 21, 32, 11590-11602, 2015.08, Bongkrekic acid (BKA), isolated from the bacterium Burkholderia cocovenenans, is an inhibitor of adenine nucleotide translocator, which inhibits apoptosis, and is thus an important tool for the mechanistic investigation of apoptosis. An efficient total synthesis of BKA has been achieved by employing a three-component convergent strategy based on Kocienski–Julia olefination and Suzuki–Miyaura coupling. It is noteworthy that segmentB has been prepared as a new doubly functionalized coupling partner, which contributes to shortening of the number of steps. Torquoselective olefination with an ynolate has also been applied for the efficient
construction of an unsaturated ester. Furthermore, it is revealed that 1-methyl-2-azaadamantane N-oxyl is an excellent reagent for final oxidation to afford BKA in high yield. Based on the total synthesis, several BKA analogues were prepared for structure–activity relationship studies, which indicatedthat the carboxylic acid moieties were essential for the apoptosis inhibitory activity of BKA. More easily available BKA analogues with potent apoptosis inhibitory activity were also developed..
