    Upon injury, the distal terminal of axon transforms into so-called dystrophic endball. This degenerative structure has been thought to be closely associated with inability of regeneration of our axons in the cetral nervous system. However, underlying molecular mechanism except neuronal cell-surface molecule, PTPRσ, has been unknown. Here I have identified Cortactin as a new substrate for PTPRσ. Cortactin was de-phosphorylated by PTPRσ, and its phosphorylated form was completely diminished in dystrophic endball. Furthermore, knock-down of Cortactin in cultured neurons led to inhibition of axonal elongation, and swollen structures with autophagosomal accumulation which was specific character of dystrophic endball.
    Taken together, these results have revealed a pivotal role of PTPRσ-Cortactin axis in axonal regeneration and its inhibition.

    Heparan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are sulfated glycans which are involved in axonal elongation in our central nervous system. Although they share the same neuronal receptor PTPσ, how they differentially regulate it is still unknown. Here, minimum essential structures of heparan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate were successfully identified. In both glycans, tetrasaccharide is the shortest structure to interact with PTPσ. However, interestingly, the probability of the structures is quite rare in chondroitin sulfate, while quite rich in heparan sulfate. These findings account for how heparan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate work in opposing manner on PTPσ and axonal elongation.

  5. Identification of receptors for phosphacan which inhibit axonal regeneration

    Highly purified recombinant phosphacan was purepared using anion exchange and gel filtration chromatography. Increasing gradient of recombinant phosphacan induced dystrophic endball, a morphological marker for regeneration stopping axons, to cultured dorsal root ganglion neurons. Using electron microscope and immunocytochemistry, autophagosomes were found in dystrophic endball, suggesting that autophagy is an essential cellular event for formation of dystrophic endball.
    Surface plasmon resonance assay revealed that phosphacan strongly bound to PTPsigma and LAR which are known as receptors for chondroitin sulfate. Surprisingly, interaction between phosphacan and PTPsigma or LAR was two-phase manner, and not only chondroitin sulfate but also keratan sulfate were involved in interaction. Free keratan sulfate sugar also bound to PTPsigma and LAR.
    PTPzeta, another member of receptors tyrosine phosphatase, was also identified to be involved in inhibition of axonal regeneration.

    Midkine, a secreted growth factor, was shown to be involved in cisplatin resistance of bone marrow-metastasized neuroblastoma cells. The midkine-targetting therapy together with cisplatin could efficiently kill bone marrow-metastasized neuroblastma cells. We also found that mouse embryonic fibroblast (MEF) remarkably responded to midkine. This result suggests that midkine would signal not only to neuroblastoma cells but also stromal cells including fibroblasts.
