    Podocytopathy, which is characterized by injury to podocytes, frequently causes proteinuria or nephrotic syndrome. There is currently a paucity of effective therapeutic drugs to treat proteinuric kidney disease. Recent research suggests the possibility that glycosphingolipid GM3 maintains podocyte function by acting on various molecules including nephrin, but its mechanism of action remains unknown. Here, various analyses were performed to examine the potential relationship between GM3 and nephrin, and the function of GM3 in podocytes using podocytopathy mice, GM3 synthase gene knockout mice, and nephrin injury cells. Reduced amounts of GM3 and nephrin were observed in podocytopathy mice. Intriguingly, this reduction of GM3 and nephrin, as well as albuminuria, were inhibited by administration of valproic acid. However, when the same experiment was performed using GM3 synthase gene knockout mice, valproic acid administration did not inhibit albuminuria. Equivalent results were obtained in model cells. These findings indicate that GM3 acts with nephrin in a collaborative manner in the cell membrane. Taken together, elevated levels of GM3 stabilize nephrin, which is a key molecule of the slit diaphragm, by enhancing the environment of the cell membrane and preventing albuminuria. This study provides novel insight into new drug discovery, which may offer a new therapy for kidney disease with albuminuria.

    Swainsonine (SWA), a potent inhibitor of class II α-mannosidases, is present in a number of plant species worldwide and causes severe toxicosis in livestock grazing these plants. The mechanisms underlying SWA-induced animal poisoning are not fully understood. In this study, we analyzed the alterations that occur in N- and free N-glycomic upon addition of SWA to HepG2 cells to understand better SWA-induced glycomic alterations. After SWA addition, we observed the appearance of SWA-specific glycomic alterations, such as unique fucosylated hybrid-type and fucosylated M5 (M5F) N-glycans, and a remarkable increase in all classes of Gn1 FNGs. Further analysis of the context of these glycomic alterations showed that (fucosylated) hybrid type N-glycans were not the precursors of these Gn1 FNGs and vice versa. Time course analysis revealed the dynamic nature of glycomic alterations upon exposure of SWA and suggested that accumulation of free N-glycans occurred earlier than that of hybrid-type N-glycans. Hybrid-type N-glycans, of which most were uniquely core fucosylated, tended to increase slowly over time, as was observed for M5F N-glycans. Inhibition of swainsonine-induced unique fucosylation of hybrid N-glycans and M5 by coaddition of 2-fluorofucose caused significant increases in paucimannose- and fucosylated paucimannose-type N-glycans, as well as paucimannose-type free N-glycans. The results not only revealed the gross glycomic alterations in HepG2 cells induced by swainsonine, but also provide information on the global interrelationships between glycomic alterations.
