Inositol-phosphodihydroceramides in the periodontal pathogen Tannerella forsythia: Structural analysis and incorporation of exogenous myo-inositol.

Megson ZA, Pittenauer E, Duda KA, Engel R, Ortmayr K, Koellensperger G, Mach L, Allmaier G, Holst O, Messner P, Schäffer C - Biochim. Biophys. Acta (2015)

Bottom Line: T. forsythia lacks the enzymatic machinery required for myo-inositol synthesis but was found to internalize inositol from the medium for the synthesis of both Tf GL1 and Tf GL2.Their synthesis could be reliant on an external source of myo-inositol.The effects of these unique lipids on the immune system and their role in bacterial virulence could be relevant in the search for new drug targets.

HPTLC of T. forsythia lipids developed with the solvent system chloroform: methanol:water (65:25:4). Visualization was performed with the Hanessian’s stain for lipids (blue) and with thymol for carbohydrates (pink). Abbreviations: B., baseline; S. f., solvent front. A. Total lipid extract obtained using the Bligh–Dyer extraction method. 30 μg of sample were spotted at the baseline. TF GL1 and Tf GL2 ran at Rf values of 0.10 and 0.15, respectively. B. Purified Tf GL1 and Tf GL2 appeared as single bands in HPTLC and stained positive for carbohydrates. Lane 1: 3 μg of sample, lane 2: 10 μg of sample.

Purified Tf GL1 and Tf GL2 appeared as single bands in HPTLC and stained positive for carbohydrates. Lane 1: 3 μg of sample, lane 2: 10 μg of sample.

Mentions: HPTLC of the Bligh–Dyer extracts from T. forsythia cells followed by a first screening of the primuline-stained bands using MALDI–MS (data not shown) allowed for the identification of the most abundant lipids present (phosphatidylethanolamine, monogalactosyl diacylglycerol, phosphatidic acid and cardiolipin) as well as of the phosphorylated DHC lipids previously reported by Nichols et al. [9]. In addition, we detected two novel DHC lipids which could be resolved with the solvent system A. The less abundant, more polar lipid, designated as Tf GL1, migrated with an Rf value of 0.10 and the second, more abundant lipid, designated here as Tf GL2, migrated slightly in front of Tf GL1 with an Rf value of 0.15 (Fig. 1A).
