GMR GAL4 DRIVER

Eyes are shown at 90X magnification and imaginal discs are shown at X magnification. 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. Regardless of the mechanism by which GAL4 disrupts eye development, it is apparent that there is an effect, and that apoptosis is increased. Flybase currently lists articles that have used the construct since its creation in This phenotype is reminiscent of that obtained through expression of the small G-protein, Dras2 Brand and Perrimon, This system operates under the assumption that the yeast transcription factor, GAL4, is inactive in D. The GMR element causes high-level expression in the eye imaginal discs in cells posterior to the morphogenetic furrow.

Kramer and Brian E. In addition, GAL4 appears to induce apoptosis even in the absence of any visible morphological defects. Neuropil pattern formation and regulation of cell adhesion molecules in Drosophila optic lobe development depend on synaptobrevin.

GAL4 causes developmental defects and apoptosis when expressed in gaal4 developing eye of Drosophila melanogaster Jamie M. Engineered truncations in the Drosophila mastermind protein disrupt Notch pathway function. 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.

Personal communication to FlyBase available from http: Reiterative use of the EGF receptor triggers differentiation of all cell types in the Drosophila eye.

Expression pattern of sev-GAL4 driver parallels that of the endogenous Sevenless protein. However, several reports have noted lethality following expression of certain transgenes under these GAL4 drivers notwithstanding the fact that eye is not essential for survival of the fly.

Neither sev nor glass gene has so far been reported to be expressed in these neuronal cells. Drosophila atonal controls photoreceptor R8-specific properties and modulates both receptor tyrosine kinase and Hedgehog signalling. Ectopic gene expression in Drosophila using the GAL4 system.

In many studies, a preferred target tissue is the Drosophila eye, for which the sev-GAL4 and GMR-GAL4 drivers are most widely gaal4 since they are believed to be expressed exclusively in the developing eye cells.

Third-instar larvae were dissected in phosphate-buffered saline PBS at pH 7. Taken together, these data suggest that GAL4 can have adverse effects on D. Thus, GAL4 can be expressed under the control of D. Gmrr cells are brightly fluorescent. Further, two different GMR-GAL4 lines also show some specific differences in their expression domains outside the eye gap4.

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

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. Thus, induction of apoptosis by GAL4 appears to be dose sensitive, but not temperature sensitive, and can occur in the absence of a visible adult phenotype.

Arrows indicate the location of the morphogenetic furrow in the imaginal discs. Alternatively, increased temperature may cause increased expression of GAL4, which gme also enhance the phenotype. Expression of GAL4 under the control of the glass multiple reporter GMR promoter element causes developmental defects and apoptosis in the Drosophila melanogaster eye.

Many overexpression studies in D.

Gal work of B. Targeted gene expression as a means of altering cell fates and generating dominant phenotypes. Cell proliferation, survival, and death in the Drosophila eye.

This system operates under the assumption that the yeast transcription factor, GAL4, is inactive in D. 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. 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.

Acridine orange was used to visualize apoptotic cells in the eye imaginal discs, as described by Bonini For example, the D.
