Medaka (Oryzias latipes), along with zebrafish (Danio rerio), is a useful experimental model fish. Here, we describe a simple method for generating medaka gene knock-out strains using an automated microchip electrophoresis system. We also describe a method for targeted gene knock-in using a plasmid carrying a sequence that does not cause off-target effects in medaka.

Cyanobacterial blooms pose serious threats to aquatic organisms and strongly impact the functioning of aquatic ecosystems. Due to their ability to produce a wide range of potentially bioactive secondary metabolites, so called cyanotoxins, cyanobacteria have been extensively studied in the past decades. Proteomic and metabolomic analyses provide a unique opportunity to evaluate the global response of hundreds of proteins and metabolites at a glance. In this study, we provide the first combined utilization of these methods targeted to identify the response of fish to bloom-forming cyanobacteria...

A spontaneous medaka ro mutant shows abnormal wobbling and rolling swimming behaviors. By positional cloning, we mapped the ro locus to a region containing the gene encoding Contactin1b (Cntn1b), which is an immunoglobulin (Ig)-superfamily domain-containing membrane-anchored protein. The ro mutant had a deletion in the cntn1b gene that introduced a premature stop codon. Furthermore, cntn1b mutants generated by the CRISPR/Cas9 system and trans-heterozygotes of the CRISPR mutant allele and ro had abnormal swimming behavior, indicating that the cntn1b gene was responsible for the ro-mutant phenotype...

Mating pairs of medaka (Oryzias latipes) were exposed to diclofenac (DCF) at measured concentrations of 0 (control), 7.1, 37, and 78 µg/L for 14 d under static-renewal conditions. Effects on reproductive success, as well as morphological abnormalities, of the fish were assessed. During the exposure period, both fecundity and fertility were significantly decreased in the 37 and 78 µg/L treatments groups, and swollen abdomens in females were observed in all exposure groups. Notably, a defect of the lower jaw also was observed in four male fish: two at 37 µg/L, and the others at 78 µg/L of DCF...

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) plays important physiological roles in vertebrates. Studies in rats and rainbow trout confirmed that DHA biosynthesis proceeds through the so-called "Sprecher pathway", a biosynthetic process requiring a Δ6 desaturation of 24:5n-3 to 24:6n-3. Alternatively, some teleosts possess fatty acyl desaturases 2 (Fads2) that enable them to biosynthesis DHA through a more direct route termed the "Δ4 pathway". In order to elucidate the prevalence of both pathways among teleosts, we investigated the Δ6 ability towards C24 substrates of Fads2 from fish with different evolutionary and ecological backgrounds...

Several short-term whole-organism bioassays based on transgenic aquatic models are now under validation by the OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) to become standardized test guidelines for the evaluation of the endocrine activity of substances. Evaluation of the endocrine disrupting capacity of pesticides will be a domain of applicability of these future reference tests. The herbicide linuron and the insecticide fenoxycarb are two chemicals commonly used in agricultural practices...

Zebrafish display a distinct ability to regenerate their heart following injury. However, this ability is not shared by another teleost, the medaka. In order to identify cellular and molecular bases for this difference, we performed comparative transcriptomic analyses following cardiac cryoinjury. This comparison points to major differences in immune cell dynamics between these models. Upon closer examination, we observed delayed and reduced macrophage recruitment in medaka, along with delayed neutrophil clearance...

The Medaka Extended One-Generation Test (MEOGRT) was developed as a multi-generational toxicity test for chemicals, particularly endocrine disrupting chemicals. Briefly, 3 generations of Japanese medaka (Oryzias latipes) are exposed to a chemical over a 20-week period: 3-week in the parental generation (F0), 15-week in the first generation (F1), and 2-week in the second generation (F2). The present study reports the first MEOGRT results concerning branched isomer mixtures of 4-nonylphenol (NP). Adult F0 medaka exposed to NP at 5 actual concentrations (1...

The pancreas plays important roles in the regulation of blood glucose, and is a well-studied organ in mammals because its dysfunction causes serious disorders, such as diabetes mellitus. However, mammals have the limited capacity for tissue regeneration in their organs, including pancreas. Fish may be an attractive model for regeneration studies, as fish exhibit a greater capacity for regeneration than do mammals. To elucidate the regenerative capacity of pancreatic β cells in medaka, we generated transgenic lines, in which β cells can be specifically ablated using the nitroreductase (NTR)/metronidazole (Mtz) system...

Lifestyle-related diseases have become a major issue in recent years. The increasing incidence of fatty liver underlines the urgency with which the issues of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) need to be addressed. L-carnitine is a compound known to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria to enhance β-oxidation-mediated metabolism of fats. In this study, the effects of L-carnitine administration on fatty liver of medaka (Oryzias latipes) were analysed, to check for disease improvement and metabolic changes...

Hypothalamic gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons play an important role in promoting secretion of pituitary luteinizing hormone (LH) and ovulation by releasing GnRH peptide. The release of GnRH peptide is generally assumed to be mainly modulated according to the firing activity of GnRH neurons. However, the relationship between the firing activity and the release of GnRH peptide has been elusive. Here, we analyzed it by using two lines of transgenic medaka (gnrh1: EGFP and lhb: inverse-pericam) for the combined electrophysiological and Ca2+ imaging analyses...

Gene duplication is a major driving force of evolution. How gene duplicates have evolved remains a mystery. A highly conserved gene such as Pax6 is an ideal model to study functional conservation and divergence via comparisons among diverse organisms. One pax6 gene has been characterized in the Japanese medaka (Oryzias latipes), which is annotated as pax6b on chromosome 3. Here, we report that Medaka pax6b is homolog to Pax6 of mammals in sequence, chromosomal synteny, and genomic organization. Cloning and sequencing led to the identification of up to 43 pax6b RNA variants predicting six protein isoforms, 22 of which are similar to those reported in other organisms and 21 represent novel RNA variants...

Small teleost fish including zebrafish and medaka have been used as animal models for research because of their small body size, vast amounts of eggs produced, their rapid development, low husbandry costs, and transparency during embryogenesis. Although the body size and appearance seem different, fish and mammals including human still possess anatomical and functional similarities in their brains. This review summarizes the similarities of brain structures and functions between teleost fish and mammalian brains, focusing on the dopamine system, functional regionalization of the cerebellum, and presence of the nucleus ruber...

We report the comprehensive analysis of Tc1/mariner transposons in six species of neoteleost (cod, tetraodon, fugu, medaka, stickleback, and tilapia) for which draft sequences are available. In total, 33 Tc1/mariner families were identified in these neoteleost genomes, with 3-7 families in each species. Thirty of these are in full length and designed as autonomous families, and were classified into the DD34E (Tc1) and DD×D (pogo) groups. The DD34E (Tc1) group was further classified into five clusters (Passport-like, SB-like, Frog Prince-like, Minos-like, and Bari-like)...

Yes-associated protein (YAP) is regulated by mechanical cues via the interaction of the Hippo pathway with cytoskeleton. Previous studies showed that YAP plays a role in regulating the actomyosin network by suppressing Rho GTPase in medaka fish. Here, we identify Rho GTPase activating protein 29 (ARHGAP29) as a transcriptional target of YAP in a human gastric cancer cell line. YAP promotes the expression of ARHGAP29 to suppress the RhoA-LIMK-cofilin pathway, destabilizing F-actin. The overexpression of YAP causes cytoskeletal rearrangement by altering the dynamics of F-actin/G-actin turnover, thus promoting migration...

Nonmammalian vertebrates have the capacity of lifelong tooth replacement. In all vertebrates, tooth formation requires contact and interaction between the oral or pharyngeal epithelium and the underlying mesenchyme. To secure lifelong replacement, the presence of odontogenic stem cells has been postulated, particularly in the epithelial compartment. This study uses an advanced teleost fish species, the marine medaka Oryzias melastigma, a close relative to Oryzias latipes, to examine the expression and distribution of telomerase reverse transcriptase (Tert), the catalytic unit of telomerase, in developing pharyngeal teeth and to relate these data to the proliferative activity of the cells...

Increasing aluminum (Al) concentrations in aquatic habitats as a result of anthropogenic acidification and industrialization is a global issue. Moreover, in extensive areas of the humid tropics and subtropics, high Al concentrations in freshwater are observed because of both naturally low pH and high Al concentrations in soil. Al increases production of reactive oxygen species and enhances oxidative damage in mammals. However, no studies have examined the effect of environmentally relevant concentrations of Al at low pH on oxidative stress in fish...

The unfolded protein response (UPR) handles unfolded/misfolded proteins accumulated in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). However, it is unclear how vertebrates correctly use the total of ten UPR transducers. We have found that ER stress occurs physiologically during early embryonic development in medaka fish and that the smooth alignment of notochord cells requires ATF6 as a UPR transducer, which induces ER chaperones for folding of type VIII (short-chain) collagen. After secretion of hedgehog for tissue patterning, notochord cells differentiate into sheath cells, which synthesize type II collagen...

Optimum concentrations of anesthetic clove oil and anesthetic lidocaine-HCl were determined for a species of adult marine medaka, Oryzias dancena, over a range of salinity conditions, and investigated in a transport simulation experiment by analyzing various water and physiological parameters. Research indicated that the higher the concentration of anesthetic at each salinity, the shorter the anesthesia time at each salinity. At each concentration, fish were anesthetized slower at water salinities over 10 ppt (P<0...
