The enhancement of the ct 53d wing phenotype correlates with a decrease in Cut expression in the presumptive wing margin, thus indicating that the BRM complex activity is required genetically upstream of cut. Independent reinsertion events in the second and third chromosomes were balanced with SM5-TM6 , a reciprocal translocation balancer. However, the dynamic expression pattern of Cux2 mRNA in the central nervous system, particularly in the subventricular zone and upper cortical layers of the developing telencephalon, suggests that Cux2 regulates a pool of cycling precursor cells predetermined to generate upper-layer cortical neurons Z immer et al.

Since degeneration of wing tissue prefigures the development of the margin sensory bristles, it has been difficult to resolve the autonomy of Cut function in margin sensory organ specification. Cut overexpression also partially restores blade tissue and margin bristles of the ct 6 and ct 2s alleles Figure 2, E and F.

Vector and parameters for targeted transgenic RNA interference in Drosophila melanogaster

UAS has wing phenotype, non-enhanceable by pan 13a. We identified a novel role for lola in wing-margin development, revealed gal44 its gain- and loss-of-function genetic interactions with hypomorphic cut alleles. The suppression of sensory bristle loss, however, is likely independent of this effect on Wg expression. Is the BRM complex required for gypsy insulation activity? This may include direct interference with gypsy insulator activity, in addition to being required for cut wing enhancer activity.


Nature of the lesion. Knockdown of decapentaplegic dpp removed all veins, as expected data not shown.

In total, 45 genetic loci 35 gain-of-function and 10 loss-of-function loci were identified by virtue of their ability to suppress the wing-margin defects resulting from gypsy retrotransposon-mediated insulation of the cut wing-margin enhancer.

As previously stated, overexpression of full-length Osa also ameliorates the ct 53d phenotype, consistent with the idea that Osa acts as a repressor. Thus, manipulating the activity of the BRM complex components Mor and Brm strongly modifies ct K -dependent wing-margin loss.

A chromatin remodelling complex that loads cohesin onto human chromosomes. It is not clear why the hypomorphic mor alleles suppress ct K more strongly than a mor deficiency does. Chip, a widely expressed chromosomal protein required for bal4 and activity of a remote wing margin enhancer in Drosophila.

Identification of Genetic Loci That Interact With cut During Drosophila Wing-Margin Development

Disruption of Brahma complex activity enhances the ct 53d phenotype: Enhancer-promoter communication mediated by Chip during Pannier-driven proneural patterning is regulated by Osa.

It is not clear, however, if Lola isoform F is responsible for the in vivo genetic interaction with JIL The inability to create homozygotes of P-element—integrated UAS-hairpin lines is a potential drawback to the transgenic hairpin technology, given that a twofold increase in gene expression can have a strong effect on phenotype as discussed below. No mapping of the transformants to a specific chromosome is needed, and insertions into the attP2 landing site are homozygous viable.


Results from genetic interaction studies are summarized: First, in diploid cells, Su Hw and Mod mdg4 colocalize ggal4 gypsy and other native insulating elements at peri-nuclear locations G erasimova and C orces B Overexpression gal a dominant-negative form of Brm further reduces the level of Cut expression in ct 53d mutants solid arrowhead.

It has been suggested that a general mechanism influencing higher-order chromatin structure may be involved in both regulation of gypsy activity and homeotic gene expression. Together, these results suggest that the Osa-containing BAP complex must act as a transcriptional repressor to ameliorate cut -dependent wing-margin patterning defects.

Thus, both may act to suppress the wing phenotype by influencing cell growth and proliferation. This is consistent with previous evidence suggesting that Nipped-B facilitates the activation of cut expression R ollins et al.
