GMR GAL4 DRIVER

Acridine orange was used to visualize apoptotic cells in the eye imaginal discs, as described by Bonini This phenotype is reminiscent of that obtained through expression of the small G-protein, Dras2 Brand and Perrimon, Taken together, these data suggest that GAL4 can have adverse effects on D. We found that both these drivers are indeed expressed in additional tissues, including a common set of specific neuronal cells in larval and pupal ventral and cerebral ganglia. The binary GAL4-UAS system of conditional gene expression is widely used by Drosophila geneticists to target expression of the desired transgene in tissue of interest. Thus, GAL4 can be expressed under the control of D. Reiterative use of the EGF receptor triggers differentiation of all cell types in the Drosophila eye.

We have shown that expression of GAL4 in the developing eye under the control of the glass multiple reporter GMR promoter element does have an effect on eye development. The development of the Drosophila eye is a complex, yet relatively well-understood process reviewed in Baker, Thus, GAL4 can be expressed under the control of D.

A broad expression profile of the GMR-GAL4 driver in Drosophila melanogaster.

Expression pattern of sev-GAL4 driver parallels that of the endogenous Sevenless protein. Thanks also to Dr. In many studies, a preferred target tissue is the Drosophila eye, for which the sev-GAL4 and GMR-GAL4 drivers are most widely used since they are believed to be expressed exclusively in the developing eye cells.

Personal communication to FlyBase available from http: Reiterative use of gla4 EGF receptor triggers differentiation of all cell types in the Drosophila eye. The GMR element ga,4 high-level expression in the eye imaginal discs in cells posterior to the morphogenetic furrow. Alternatively, increased temperature may cause increased expression of GAL4, which could also enhance the phenotype.

In addition, GAL4 appears to induce apoptosis even in the absence of any visible morphological defects. Apoptotic cells are brightly fluorescent.

A broad expression profile of the GMR-GAL4 driver in Drosophila melanogaster.

Drosophila atonal controls photoreceptor R8-specific properties and modulates both receptor tyrosine kinase and Hedgehog signalling. The binary GAL4-UAS system of conditional gene expression is widely used by Drosophila geneticists to target expression of the desired transgene in tissue of interest. Analysis of adult eyes and imaginal discs For scanning electron microscopy SEMtwo-day-old females were desiccated overnight and coated in gold before photography with a Hitachi S SEM.

Eyes are shown at 90X magnification and imaginal discs are shown at X magnification. Note that the increased staining of apoptotic cells is only apparent posterior to the morphogenetic furrow where GAL4 is being expressed. Acridine orange was used gmmr visualize apoptotic cells in the eye imaginal discs, as described by Bonini GAL4 can be expressed in many different patterns by placing it under the control of various D.

Ectopic expression in Drosophila. Expression of GAL4 under the control of the glass multiple reporter GMR gxl4 element causes developmental defects and apoptosis in the Drosophila melanogaster eye. Engineered truncations in the Drosophila mastermind protein disrupt Notch pathway function. The work of B.

This phenotype is reminiscent of that obtained through expression of the small G-protein, Dras2 Brand and Perrimon, For example, the D. Further, two different GMR-GAL4 lines gal44 show some specific differences in their expression domains outside the eye discs. Regardless of the mechanism by which GAL4 disrupts eye development, it is apparent that there is an effect, and that apoptosis is increased.

Many overexpression studies in D. This bipartite expression system utilizes the yeast transcription factor, GAL4, and its target sequence, UAS upstream bmr sequenceto which GAL4 binds in order to activate gene transcription.

Ectopic gene expression in Drosophila using the GAL4 system. Third-instar larvae were dissected in phosphate-buffered saline PBS at pH 7. GAL4 causes developmental defects and apoptosis when expressed in the developing eye of Drosophila melanogaster Jamie M.

Arrows indicate the location of the morphogenetic furrow in the imaginal discs.

FlyBase Recombinant Construct Report: P{}

Taken together, these data suggest that GAL4 can have adverse effects on D. Cell proliferation, survival, and death in the Drosophila eye. Thus, it is imperative that experiments be well controlled and that new GAL4 constructs be well characterized to avoid misinterpretation of results, especially for the study of apoptosis.

Neither sev nor glass gene has so far been reported to be expressed tmr these neuronal cells.
