研究活動の概要

 ヒトは30億塩基対からなるゲノムによって、その遺伝的背景が決まっています。そして、そのゲノムのほんの一部の変化によって、多くの遺伝性疾患は発症します。分子生物学部では、単一遺伝子の変異によって発症すると考えられている遺伝性不整脈や心筋症などの遺伝性循環器疾患について、次世代シークエンサー等の機器を用いて、その遺伝的な原因を明らかにします。そして遺伝的背景生じる疾患発症へのメカニズムを電気生理学的、生化学的手法を用いて明らかにし、そこで得られた知見を元に、有効な治療薬の開発に結びつけていきます。
 また単一遺伝子によって発症する疾患のみならず、ゲノムワイド関連解析などの手法を用い、弱い作用を持つ遺伝子多型の違いによって、どのように循環器疾患発症リスクが異なっているのか、解析を進めていきます。
 さらに生活習慣病の予防にも直結する、骨格筋の線維型の決定及び維持機構について、モデル動物を用いて解析しています。

2017年の主な研究成果

  1. J波症候群の患者に、一過性外向きカリウム電流チャネルをコードするKCND3の新規突然変異を同定した。電気生理学的な機能解析で、機能獲得型変異であることを明らかにし、キニジンの有効性を証明した。
  2. 骨格筋の線維型維持機構の解明に向けて、Vgll2が運動時の骨格筋の遅筋化に関与するかどうかを明らかにするために、代償性運動負荷試験を実施し、詳細な解析を行った。
