Abstract Share this page

Hemorrhage is one of the most prominent manifestations produced by the parenteral administration of various snake venoms especially of Habu (Mitsuhashi et al., 1959; Ohsaka et al., 1961) and other species of Crotalidae (Fidler et al., 1940; Taube et al., 1937) . In order to study the principle (s) responsible for hemorrhage caused by snake venom, a quantitative method for the determination of hemorrhagic activity is required. Up to date, however, few attempts have been made to establish the quantitative estimation of hemorrhagic activity of snake venom. Minton (1956) and Mitsuhashi et al. (1959) tried to estimate the hemorrhagic activity but the results they obtained were not reproducible in our hands.The present authors proposed a new method, which consists of the following procedures; (1) intracutaneous injection of venom into the depilated back skin of rabbits; (2) accurate measurement of the size of hemorrhagic spot carried out from the inside of the removed skin; (3) application of the parallel line assay method for the estimation.By this method it was possible to study the relationships of hemorrhagic activity to proteolytic and other pathological activities of Habu venom (Ohsaka et al., 1960, 1961) . In this paper, details of the new method will be presented.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
