Medical Researches and Education with an international Standard

We are performing cutting edge researches to analyze reproductive, urogenital organ formation. Such organogenesis plan remains mystery for decades. Researches include ; molecular mechanisms of limb and external genitalia formation-its similarity and divergence. Finding out molecular developmental programs is very exciting and you can enjoy researches by joining us. Our lab activity is high. We have been selected as COE, GCOE members in the past. We have organized many international seminars and we have organized several meetings at Wakayama. Some of our students got prizes. Some of our previous student and colleagues got positions out of Japan such as in China and USA.

Many young people are working in our laboratory. We use English as a basic language for already 12 years (we have many international students from several countries (currently, four international colleagues). Japanese students also enjoy such environment, of course. They speak well with their international colleagues!! Active Ph.D. students have been selected to attend international meetings.

For young people of Japanese and international students, we think having international views is one of the important requirements to become scientist. By being exposed to active and international environment of our laboratory, you can communicate well and you can discuss very well with international colleagues.
We have been performing advanced education and researches on international basis. our lab members are composed by several international students.  You can enjoy and you can polish yourself in such environment.  MDs and PhDs are equally trained in such environment and experience and proceed well their carriers. 
Please visit us and talk with Gen Yamada and our lad members.  We are sure that you will enjoy active scientific environment and you will also enjoy science.

Educational Outline

Urogenital/reproductive organ formation is one of the most important and attractive organogenesis plans. The system is necessary for reproductive functions in various aspects, such as for copulation, ovulation, ejaculation, implantation and delivery. The male and female reproductive/urogenital organs show a tremendous degree of structural and functional diversity between the sexes. Various growth factors and transcription factors constitute molecular genetic cascades for the development of these structures. Elucidation of such mechanisms for sexual differentiation is important as medical science and to analyze several diseases.

Our laboratory is analyzing the molecular genetic cascade for such urogenital/reproductive organ formation. We have been working on the role of several growth factor system during urogenital/reproductive organ formation. (Haraguchi, Development 127: 2471-2479,2000, Haraguchi,Development 128:4241-4250,2001, Suzuki,Development 131:6209-6220,2003, Haraguchi,Development 134:525-533,2007, Ohta et al.,Development 24:4315-24,2007, Nishida et al, Endocrinology 149:2090-7,2008, Suzuki, Development 136:367-372,2009., Ogino. Endocrinology. 2009,Miyagawa Mol. Endocrinology. 2011, Murashima , Endocrinology 2011, Suzuki et al. PNAS etc ).

For several decades, researchers have tackled to analyze the developmental programs for organogenesis. Significant progresses have been obtained for organogenetis plans, such as for limb, body, head formation. However, our understanding for urogenital/reproductive organ formation remains virtually very poor. We are analyzing molecular genetic cascade utilizing conditional mouse models to tackle the next series of project.

Our lab is an international lab holding many international students (lab semi is done in English for already 12 years. (students talks are also in English....).
We are proud to comment some our previous colleagues became PIs after getting back home countries. Lets join Gen Yamada lab Wakayama Medical Univ.

Research Outline

On-going projects;

  1. How sexual differentiation is achieved by organ level; sexual differentiation is one of the most amazing processes in organogenesis. However how local effector genes and growth factor systems have been incorporated to regulate such process remain unknown. We have performed many pioneer studies including the identification of sexually dimorphic regulator (sexually dimorphic effector genes).
    We even succeeded in proceeding sex transformation by manipulating such genes. Our analysis will reveal not only the process of sexual differentiation but also we are in the process of analyzing several causative factors for defects of sexual differentiation (DSD).
  2. Coordination of organogenesis; growth factor cascades necessary for coordinated development of urogenital/reproductive organ formation at caudal embryos.
  3. Analysis of epithelial development in several organs; the uniqueness of epithelial differentiation program in urogenital/reproductive tissues as compared with other organs, such as for skin. How reproductive tissues achieve unique nature of epithelial development ? Suzuki, Development 136:367-372,2009.
  4. Analysis of urogenital/reproductive organ formation; molecular mechanisms of limb and external genitalia formation-its similarity and divergence. External genitalia and urethra formation, bladder and uterus formation are investigated.

"Similar" developmental plans; a prologue music...

It is intriguing and important to note the potential similarities and divergences of some “shared” developmental plans between “general” organogenesis and reproductive/urogenital organ formation. Figure shows an example of the initial process of reproductive organ development in comparison with that of limb ( arms, legs...) appendages as an example somatic organ development .
Epithelial-mesenchymal interactions play an essential role in regulating a wide variety of developmental processes. Signaling between the epithelium and the mesenchyme governs many aspects of organogenesis, from the initiation of organ development to differentiation.
The external genital anlage is the genital tubercle (GT). Our pioneering studies have suggested that GT development may have some similarities to limb appendage development, with both structures exhibiting organ outgrowth. We found several landmarking observations that both appendages express "similar" signal genes in the distal epithelia. We gave a name DUE in the case of GT for such epithelia (Fig)

Developmental "coordination"; a fundamental problem

We have interests in the coordinated developmental programs for urogenital/reproductive organ formation. " Coordination" is sort of a common sense in development but virtually no molecular genetic studies have shown such basic processes.
It has been suggested that the cloaca/urogenital sinus and adjacent tissues differentiate into the urogenital and reproductive organs, including the urinary bladder in both sexes. This is supported by reports on complex congenital malformations such as: exstrophy-epispadias complex (exstrophy of cloaca or bladder and abnormal dorsal external genitalia); defective body wall, bladder and genitalia formation; and limb body wall defects that are probably caused by abnormalities in early development of the cloaca and urogenital sinus. The constellation of defects reported in affected individuals suggests that coordinated developmental programs regulate bladder and external genital morphogenesis. However, the signaling and structural contributions of the transient embryonic cloaca to formation of multiple urogenital and reproductive organs inside and outside the pelvic cavity remain mystery.

By genetically labeling hedgehog-responding tissue lineages adjacent to the cloaca and urogenital sinus, we defined the contribution of these tissues to the bladder and external genitalia. We discovered that development of smooth muscle myosin-positive embryonic bladder mesenchyme requires Shh signaling, and that the bladder mesenchyme and dorsal (upper) external are genitalia derived from Shh-responsive peri-cloacal mesenchyme. Thus, the mesenchymal precursors for multiple urogenital structures are derived from peri-cloacal mesenchyme and the coordination of urogenital organ formation from these precursors is orchestrated by Shh signals. This is the beginning and many works are necessary to analyze the mode of coordination in organogenesis.
