  • A comprehensive comparison of sex-inducing activity in asexual worms of the planarian Dugesia ryukyuensis: The crucial sex-inducing substance appears to be present in yolk glands in Tricladida

    © 2018 The Author(s). Background: Turbellarian species can post-embryonically produce germ line cells from pluripotent stem cells called neoblasts, which enables some of them to switch between an asexual and a sexual state in response to environmental changes. Certain low-molecular-weight compounds contained in sexually mature animals act as sex-inducing substances that trigger post-embryonic germ cell development in asexual worms of the freshwater planarian Dugesia ryukyuensis (Tricladida). These sex-inducing substances may provide clues to the molecular mechanism of this reproductive switch. However, limited information about these sex-inducing substances is available. Results: Our assay system based on feeding sex-inducing substances to asexual worms of D. ryukyuensis is useful for evaluating sex-inducing activity. We used the freshwater planarians D. ryukyuensis and Bdellocephala brunnea (Tricladida), land planarian Bipalium nobile (Tricladida), and marine flatworm Thysanozoon brocchii (Polycladida) as sources of the sex-inducing substances. Using an assay system, we showed that the three Tricladida species had sufficient sex-inducing activity to fully induce hermaphroditic reproductive organs in asexual worms of D. ryukyuensis. However, the sex-inducing activity of T. brocchii was sufficient only to induce a pair of ovaries. We found that yolk glands, which are found in Tricladida but not Polycladida, may contain the sex-inducing substance that can fully sexualize asexual worms of D. ryukyuensis. Conclusions: Our results suggest that within Tricladida, there are one or more common compounds or functional analogs capable of fully sexualizing asexual worms of D. ryukyuensis; namely, the crucial sex-inducing substance (hydrophilic and heat-stable, but not a peptide) produced in yolk glands.

    © 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. The DUT gene encodes Deoxyuridine triphosphatase (dUTPase), which is involved in nucleotide metabolism. dUTPase prevents uracil misincorporation in DNA by balancing the intracellular ratio between dUTP and dTTP. This study aimed to investigate the role of Dr-dut gene in the planarian Dugesia ryukyuensis by assessing the consequences of Dr-dut silencing on known phenomena, including regeneration following amputation and radiation damage. We functionally disrupted planarian Dr-dut mRNA by feeding RNAi-containing food to animals. Dr-dut RNAi resulted in the death of planarians in 28 days, and elevated double-stranded DNA breakage. Expression of the DNA damage response gene Dr-atm and the DNA repair genes Dr-rad51 and Dr-rad51c temporarily increased, and then decreased following the onset of feeding. When RNAi-treated planarians were amputated, both head and tail parts failed to regenerate, and the animals died in 25 and 29 days, respectively. Administration of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) also resulted in death and DNA damage, and synergistically caused higher genotoxicity in planarian fed Dr-dut RNAi-containing food.

     View Summary

    There are races in planarian with switching of reproduction modes of between asexual and sexual, depending on the change of season. To identify the environmental parameter to induce the switching of reproduction modes, we collected Dugeisa ryukyuensis regularly in Okinawa through one year and established some strains, which switch between sexual mode and asexual mode under the constant environment in the laboratory (called as switching mode). The worms of the switching mode were asexual mode in summer. When their living condition had been changed from summer condition to winter condition (15 C in temperature and 10L14D in photoperiod), their reproduction modes were switched from asexual to sexual.
    Unfortunately, worms of switching modes could not maintained their characters during three years or more. Therefore, it is necessary to constantly established some new strains, which switch between sexual mode and asexual mode under the constant environment for this experiment.
