  • A gene encoding an extracellular collagenase from the marine bacterium Vibrio vulnificus CYK279H was cloned into E. coli JM83 using the multicopy plasmid vector pUC19. The cloned strain of recombinant E. coli showing collagenase activity had an insert fragment of 3.5 kb and was named E. coli JM83/pKCL 279H. The cloned strain produced two different collagenase during cultivation. These enzymes, named collagenase-I and -II, were purified from the culture supernatant. SDS-PAGE indicated that collagenase-I had a molecular weight of 41 kDa and collagenase-II had a weight of 37 kDa. The N-terminal amino acid sequence of collagenase-I from the cloned strain, E. coli JM83/pKCL279H was determined and was not found to be similar to any other known collagenases. The optimum pH and temperature of the purified collagenase-I were 7.8 and $37^{\circ}C$, respectively.

  • Some flavones/flavonols were previously found to inhibit collagenase. To establish a therapeutic potential for skin inflammation, twenty-three synthetic flavone derivatives were examined for their inhibitory potential against collagenase from Clostridium histolyticum. From the results, it was found that most of them having various hydroxyl, methoxyl, methylsulfuryl and/or chloro substitution(s) on A- and B-rings were not efficient collagenase inhibitors. Among the synthetic flavones tested, only two synthetic derivatives, 3',4'-dihydroxyflavone and 5-hydroxy-4'-methoxyflavone, weakly inhibited bacterial collagenase (13-29% inhibition at 50-100 ${\mu}M$).

  • The purpose of this study was to analyze the reorganization of periodontal ligament after collagenase treatment with autoradiography. The author compared the collagenase-treated experimental group and no-treated experimental group with control group. Fourty eight Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into nine groups, including normal control and immediate group. Closed coil springs were used between the upper incisors and the first molars with 100 grams. Collagenase and $^3H-proline$ were adminstered and the samples were sacrificed and sectioned. After being dipped into the NTB-3 emulsion the samples were analyzed with light microscope under H/E stain. Data were analyzed by t-test and ANOVA. The results were as follows: 1) Generally collagenase-treated groups got more $^3H-proline$ uptake than no-treated groups. 2) Compared with normal control group, collagenase-treated group had the same $^3H-proline$ uptake in amount at 21th day. 3) Among cemento-enamel junction, middle, apex areas, cementa-enamel junction area of collagenase-treated group arrived at normal control level earlier than no-treated group. 4) Cemento-enamel junction area had the most $^3H-proline$ incorporation amount in no-treated group, but apex area had the most in collagenase group.

  • We attempted to isolate a collagenase-1 inhibitory peptide from skate Dipturus chilensis skin protein. The protein from skate skin was digested by various enzymes (alcalase, ${\alpha}$-chymotrypsin, neutrase, papain, pepsin, and trypsin) to produce a collagenase-1 inhibitory peptide. The collagenase-1 inhibitory activity of the peptides obtained was measured by gelatin digestion assay. Among the six hydrolysates, pepsin hydrolysate exhibited the highest collagenase-1 inhibitory activity. The peptide showing strong collagenase-1 inhibitory activity was purified by Sephadex G-25 gel chromatography and HPLC using an octadecylsilyls (ODS) column. The amino acid sequence of purified collagenase-1 inhibitory peptide was identified to be Asn-Leu-Asp-Val -Leu-Glu-Val-Phe (961 Da) by quadrupole time of flight (Q-TOF) and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) mass spectroscopy. The $IC_{50}$ value of purified peptide was 87.0 ${\mu}M$. Moreover, the peptide did not exhibit cytotoxic effects on human dermal fibroblast cell lines.

  • Green tea extract has been suggested to possess properties of collagenase inhibition and antimicrobial effect to fish pathogenic bacteria. Most fish pathogenic bacteria showed collagenase activities of 0.08-0.7 unit/ml. Among them, Edwardsiella tarda produced large amount of collagenase in the ST medium at $25^{\circ}C$ after 16 hrs. Biosynthesis of the enzyme from E. tarda was decreased to 1/3 by addition of 0.08-0.8 mg/ml of tea extract in the culture medium. The collagenase activity was inhibited almost 100% in the reaction mixture by 0.2 mg/ml of the extract. Then, the minimal inhibition concentration against E. tarda growth appeared as 8 mg/ml of the tea extract in the culture medium.

  • Coenzyme $Q_{10}$ and six derivatives of coenzyme Qn were synthesized and tested for their inhibitory effects on melanogenesis occurred in murine melanoma (B16/F1) cells and on collagenase/elastase activities as well. As the result, synthetic coenzyme Qn showed a potent inhibitory effect on melanin formation, collagenase and elastase activities in all tested concentrations. Among these synthetic compounds, coenzyme $Q_1$ and coenzyme $Q_2$ potentially inhibited melanin formation and elastase activity when compared to other coenzyme Qn derivatives. For the collagenase activities, all coenzyme Qn derivatives inhibited 80-85% of controls. As compared, coenzyme Qn derivatives exhibited strong inhibitory activities with the decrease of isoprenoid unit number of coenzyme Qn derivatives except for collagenase activity. For the inhibition of collagenase activity, moiety of benzoquinone might be considered as the active functional group. Taken together, coenzyme $Q_1$ and coenzyme $Q_2$ might be used for functional cosmetics.

  • Many factors may affect periodontal changes during the physiologic conditions of woman(e.g. puberty, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, menopause). Recently many research has focused on the immunological changes of host, but the exact mechanism is not clear. Collagen is a major constituent of periodontium, and collagenase specifically digests the collagen and plays a role in destruction of periodontal tissue. So, I suppose that it participates with the cytokines in the inflammation of gingiva and vascular response during the changes of female sex hormones. Because there are some evidences of the existence of the receptors of estrogen and progesterone in the gingiva, it may be a target tissue of female sex hormones. In this experiment, gingival fibroblast and periodontal ligament cell were cultured in the presence of various concentrations of estrogen or progesterone corresponding to the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. Collagenase activity of the supernatant of culture media was determined by Spectrophotometric collagenase assay. The enzyme activity was calculated by the % decrease of the coated collagen. 1. The estrogen at both concentrations had no effect on the activity of collagenase of the gingival fibroblast. 2. The progesterone had some effect on the collagenase activity of the gingival fibroblast at low and high concentration of menstrual cycle, and elevated the enzyme activity at all range of pregnancy concentrations. 3. In periodontal ligament cells, estrogen elevated the enzyme activity at the early pregnancy concentration and progesterone elevated at the concentration just before menstruation. In this experiment, pregesterone elevated the collagenase activity of gingival fibroblast and periodontal ligament cells. But the mechanism of the up-regulation of the enzyme activity was not confirmed. The more experiments of direct effect of progesterone on gingival at the molecular level(e.g. northern blot analysis) can reveal the exact mechanism.

  • A large number of factors such as osteotropic hormones, cytokines, or growth factors are related to the bone remodeling which is characterized by the coupling of osteoclast-mediated bone resorption and osteoblast-mediated bone formation. Recent investigations have indicated that cytokines such as $interleukin-1{\beta}\;(IL-1{\beta})$ and tumor necrosis $factor-{\alpha}\;(TNF-{\alpha})$ play a potential role in the bone resorption associated with a variety of pathological conditions such as inflammatory osteolytic disease. Collagen is the most abundant protein of the extracellular matrix of bone, and the participation of collagenase in bone resorption has been widely investigated. In this study, effects of $IL-1{\beta}$ and $TNF-{\alpha}$ on the release of collagenase from osteoblastic cells were measured. The gelatinase activity was also measured by gel substrate analysis (zymography) after electrophoresis of conditioned media of osteoblastic cell culture. $IL-1{\beta}$ increased the collagenase activity in ROS17/2.8 and HOS cell culture. $TNF-{\alpha}$ also increased the collagenase activity of osteoblastic cells. When two kinds of cytokines were treated simultaneously in the culture of osteoblastic cells, synergistic increase of collagenase activity was seen in ROS17/2.8 cells. $IL-1{\beta}$ and $TNF-{\alpha}$ significantly increased the collagenase activity after 6 hour treatment in the osteoblastic cell culture, and there was no additional increase according to the culture period. Osteoblastic cells released the gelatinase and molecular weight of this enzyme was measured about 70 KDa as assessed by zymogram. $IL-1{\beta}$ and $TNF-{\alpha}$ showed increase of the gelatinase activity produced by ROS17/2.8 and HOS cells. Taken together, this study suggested that $IL-1{\beta}$ and $TNF-{\alpha}$ can modulate bone metabolism, at least in part, by increased release of collagenase and gelatinase from osteoblasts.
