(英) Molecular analysis of TBL1Y, a Y-linked homologue of TBL1X related with X-linked late-onset sensorineural deafness
(英) Recent progress in sequencing the human Y chromosome has unveiled a series of X-Y homologous genes. In the present study, we focused on Transducin beta-like 1Y (TBL1Y), which is a Y-linked homologue of TBL1X that is related with X-linked late-onset sensorineural deafness. Recently, it has been shown that TBLR1, another homologue whose gene resides on chromosome 3, and TBL1X act as a corepressor/coactivator exchanger for several nuclear receptors and transcription factors. However, the expression pattern and function of TBL1Y remain unknown. The RT-PCR analysis of the TBL1 family revealed that TBL1Y was expressed in all 13 tissues examined but not in leukocytes. Among the cell lines tested, however, it was only expressed in NT2/D1 cells and in lymphoblasts transformed with Epstein Barr (EB) virus. To compare the functions of the TBL1 family, we generated a series of expression plasmids for GAL4DBD-fused proteins of the TBL1 family. We carried out dual luciferase assays using these plasmids in combination with a plasmid having a luciferase reporter gene harboring 5xGAL4 binding sites. Unlike the other constructs, GAL4DBD-fused TBL1Y did not repress the promoter activity. Moreover, we found three novel polymorphisms in the TBL1Y gene, IVS7+9G>A, G268C, and IVS7+1G>C, which is presumed to cause splicing error. These polymorphisms are found in males within Y-haplogroup O3 (XO3e), which is defined as the Y-haplogroup O3 excluding O3e, a branch of O3. The results show that TBL1Y differs from other members of the TBL1 family in expression and function, suggesting other roles in maleness.
