  • Cell-type-independent expression of inwardly rectifying potassium currents in mouse fungiform taste bud cells Reviewed International journal

    Inwardly rectifying potassium (Kir) channels play key roles in functions, including maintaining the resting membrane potential and regulating the action potential duration in excitable cells. Using in situ whole-cell recordings, we investigated Kir currents in mouse fungiform taste bud cells (TBCs) and immunologically identified the cell types (type I-III) expressing these currents. We demonstrated that Kir currents occur in a cell-type-independent manner. The activation potentials we measured were -80 to -90 mV, and the magnitude of the currents increased as the membrane potentials decreased, irrespective of the cell types. The maximum current densities at -120 mV showed no significant differences among cell types (p>0.05, one-way ANOVA). The density of Kir currents was not correlated with the density of either transient inward currents or outwardly rectifying currents, although there was significant correlation between transient inward and outwardly rectifying current densities (p<0.05, test for no correlation). RT-PCR studies employing total RNA extracted from peeled lingual epithelia detected mRNAs for Kir1, Kir2, Kir4, Kir6, and Kir7 families. These findings indicate that TBCs express several types of Kir channels functionally, which may contribute to regulation of the resting membrane potential and signal transduction of taste.

  • Quantitative analysis of taste bud cell numbers in the circumvallate and foliate taste buds of mice Reviewed International journal

    A mouse single taste bud contains 10–100 taste bud cells (TBCs) in which the elongated TBCs are classified into three cell types (types I–III) equipped with different taste receptors. Accordingly, differences in the cell numbers and ratios of respective cell types per taste bud may affect taste nerve responsiveness. Here we examined the numbers of each immunoreactive cell for the type II (sweet, bitter, or umami receptor cells) and type III (sour and/or salt receptor cells) markers per taste bud in the circumvallate and foliate papillae, and compared these numerical features of TBCs per taste bud to those in fungiform papilla and soft palate, which we previously reported. In circumvallate and foliate taste buds, the numbers of TBCs and immunoreactive cells per taste bud increased as a linear function of the maximal cross-sectional taste bud area. Type II cells made up approximately 25% of TBCs irrespective of the regions from which the TBCs arose. In contrast, type III cells in circumvallate and foliate taste buds made up approximately 11% of TBCs, which represented almost two-times higher than what was observed in the fungiform and soft palate taste buds. The densities (number of immunoreactive cells per taste bud divided by the maximal cross-sectional area of the taste bud) of types II and III cells per taste bud are significantly higher in the circumvallate papillae than in the other regions. The effects of these region-dependent differences on the taste response of the taste bud are discussed.

  • A subset of taste receptor cells express biocytin-permeable channels activated by reducing extracellular Ca2+ concentration Reviewed

    Taste receptor cells (type II cells) transmit taste information to taste nerve fibres via ATP‐permeable channels, including calcium homeostasis modulator (CALHM), connexin and/or pannexin1 channels, via the paracrine release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) as a predominant transmitter. In the present study, we demonstrate that extracellular Ca2+‐dependent biocytin‐permeable channels are present in a subset of type II cells in mouse fungiform taste buds using biocytin uptake, immunohistochemistry and in situ whole‐cell recordings. Type II cells were labelled with biocytin in an extracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]out)‐sensitive manner. We found that the ratio of biocytin‐labelled type II cells to type II cells per taste bud was approximately 20% in 2 mM Ca2+ saline, and this ratio increased to approximately 50% in nominally Ca2+‐free saline. The addition of 300 µM GdCl3, which inhibits various channels including CALHM1 channels, significantly inhibited biocytin labelling in nominally Ca2+‐free saline, whereas the addition of 20 µM ruthenium red did not. Moreover, Cs+‐insensitive currents increased in nominally Ca2+‐free saline in approximately 40% of type II cells. These increased currents appeared at a potential of above −35 mV, reversed at approximately +10 mV and increased with depolarization. These results suggest that biocytin labels type II cells via ion channels activated by [Ca2+]out reduction, probably “CALHM‐like" channels, on the basolateral membrane and that taste receptor cells can be categorized into two groups based on differences in the expression levels of [Ca2+]out‐dependent biocytin‐permeable channels. These data indicate electrophysiological and pharmacologically relevant properties of biocytin‐permeable channels and suggest their contributions to taste signal transduction.

  • Counting algorithm for sequential optical images of immunoreactive mouse taste bud cells Reviewed

    We developed a counting algorithm for use with sequential optical images of immunoreactive mouse taste bud cells. To count the immunoreactive cells in serial thin sections, continuity of a cell through the sequential sections must be confirmed. For this purpose, we used the overlap ratio of the cell regions in given sections and the distance between the sections. Results show that the mean positive predictive value for mouse taste bud cells was 99%; the mean sensitivity was 73%. Gamma correction improved the mean sensitivity to 87% with a slight decrease in the mean positive predictive value (94%).

    Grant type:Other joint research

    味覚器を構成する味蕾細胞は、興奮性に加え抑制性神経伝達物質の合成・放出機構を有し、更にそれら受容体を発現する。従って、味情報は従来の定説とは異なり、まず味蕾細胞ネットワークで修飾・統合されると考えられている。しかし、この末梢組織で修飾・統合された情報が中枢へどのように伝達されるか不明である。味情報の中枢への入り口である延髄孤束核からin vivoで記録を行い、味蕾ネットワーク処理機構の統合的解明、およびその数理モデルを構築する
