Tatsuhiko Kadowaki

Profile

After obtaining an undergraduate degree in Agricultural biochemistry, he pursued Master study in Biochemistry at Nagoya University (Japan) and PhD study in Cell Biology and Genetics at Case Western Reserve University (US). Subsequently, he worked at Harvard Medical School as the HHMI postdoctoral research fellow, and then Nagoya University, Stanford University, and UCSF as the JSPS postdoctoral research fellow. Upon his appointment to Nagoya University as Associate Professor, he has started studying honey bee and other Arthropod species as the model systems to understand Ecophysiology as well as host-pathogen/parasite interactions at molecular and cellular levels.

Professor Kadowaki has published around 60 peer-reviewed papers. He has served as an editor for two journals and a panel for several research grant awarding bodies.

  • Research interests

    • Large-scale losses of managed European honey bee colonies have been recently reported in several developed countries. Honey bee pollination provides a critical ecosystem function that is also necessary for production of a variety of agricultural crops. Thus, prevention of honey bee colony losses is a central issue in the current apiculture. Although there are many potential causes for the observed declines, pathogens/parasites are considered major threats to the health of honey bees. There are different kinds of honey bee pathogens/parasites, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoans, and mites. We study the roles of host-pathogen/parasite interactions for honey bee diseases and characterize the genomes and transcriptomes of honey bee pathogens/parasites.
    • It is not completely established whether the novel phenotypes gained by natural selection have crucial roles for speciation. Adaptation of the animal species to local environment may have induced the changes in expression patterns (through the mutations in cis-regulatory elements) or channel properties (through the amino acid substitutions) of sensory proteins such as Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) channels and Ionotropic Receptors (IRs). This could be one of the driving forces for speciation. We try to understand relationship between the temperature and humidity preferences of various Arthropod species and the properties of their TRP channels and IRs responsible for thermo- and hygro-sensation. It will give insight into the evolutionary mechanisms of TRP channels and IRs underlying temperature and humidity adaptation.
