Crossing scheme for the screen. This result suggests that Hh, but not Dpp, regulates expression of CG Phosphorylated Mad P-Mad is undetectable in jaft mutant clones arrows in Figure 7, B and C except in a single row of cells closest to the source of Dpp red cells indicated with arrows in Figure 7A.

The ability of Hh to induce differential responses can be partially explained by the dual activity of the zinc-finger transcription factor Cubitus interruptus Cithe downstream nuclear effector of the Hh pathway M ethot and Fal4 asler Suppressor of fused opposes hedgehog signal transduction by impeding nuclear accumulation of the activator form of Cubitus interruptus. Expression array analysis identifies genes with predominant expression in Gak4 or P cells and a dorsal subcluster.

The activity of the Dpp pathway can be detected using a phospho-specific antibody against the Mothers against dpp protein Mada downstream component that becomes c65 in response to Dpp signaling P ersson et al.

A modifier screen for novel components of the Hedgehog pathway: Hedgehog is a signaling protein with a key role in patterning Drosophila imaginal discs. Abstract Signaling between cells in the anterior A and posterior P compartments directs Drosophila wing disc development and is dependent on expression of the homeodomain transcription factor Engrailed En in P cells. We developed a method to analyze transcripts in A and P c75 in single wing imaginal discs from third instar larvae.


Mapping mutations is greatly simplified when there are multiple alleles, and most of our complementation groups are on the third chromosome. Knockdown of CG in the ptc pattern caused narrowing of the L3-L4 gzl4 region similar to the Sb and hui see next section: Crossing scheme for the screen.

The Him gene reveals a balance of inputs controlling muscle differentiation in Drosophila. Support Center Support Center. Additional phenotypes induced by hui RNAi that are not observed for kn include a significant reduction in size of the wing and irregularly tal4 bristles along the wing posterior margin Figure 6.

Table 1 lists the genes in the A and P clusters that had expression ratios greater than 2. This nearly cell-lethal phenotype would likely mask any role of Pav in Hh signaling and prevent its isolation in genetic screens other than a modifier screen such as this.

c76 Second, in the wing blade primordium, the A and P compartments meet to form a remarkably straight boundary line.

Expression of Sb RNAi under ptc-Gal4 reduced or eliminated the ga,4 arrow in top left and detail view bottom row, compare to control in A. As illustrated in Figure 1Bwe selected genes from each group for in situ analysis; 12 genes from the group of 88 that were identified by cluster and SAM analysis in the A group, five of that only SAM identified to be enriched in A cells, four of the high confidence group of 14 genes in P cells, seven of f765 P transcripts that were identified by SAM only, and one of the three transcripts that only cluster analysis identified as P-enriched transcripts.

UAS fails to rescue hrg This nonautonomous effect can be seen more easily by examining the expression of dppa transcriptional target of Hh signaling, using a dpp – lacZ transgene. We speculate that compensatory regulation between the two compartments may account for this yal4.


RNA amplification, microarray hybridization, and data analysis Green fluorescent protein GFP -labeled wing imaginal discs were microdissected under a fluorescence dissecting microscope. Wg and Dpp signaling are disrupted in jaft mutants. Ratios were rounded to one decimal place. Sb is repressed by en ; CG and CG respond to hh.

Posttranscriptional regulation of smoothened is part of a self-correcting mechanism in the Hedgehog signaling system. All of the deficiencies in the third chromosome deficiency kit as provided by the Bloomington Stock Center that map to this region complement gal C.

A Genetic Screen in Drosophila for Identifying Novel Components of the Hedgehog Signaling Pathway

Long-range action of Wingless organizes the dorsal-ventral axis of the Drosophila wing. Discs were dissected from wandering third instar larvae. Mapping of gao4 mutations has placed the gene between 73A and 80B on chromosome 3L. We conclude that the in situ patterns confirmed the array predictions for 27 of 29 genes.

HA has visible phenotype, non-suppressible by hyx UAS. Because Hh signaling requires new translation of Smo protein A lcedo et al. Costal2, a novel kinesin-related protein in the Hedgehog signaling pathway.
