Evolution of Nova-dependent splicing regulation in the brain. (1/71)

A large number of alternative exons are spliced with tissue-specific patterns, but little is known about how such patterns have evolved. Here, we study the conservation of the neuron-specific splicing factors Nova1 and Nova2 and of the alternatively spliced exons they regulate in mouse brain. Whereas Nova RNA binding domains are 94% identical across vertebrate species, Nova-dependent splicing silencer and enhancer elements (YCAY clusters) show much greater divergence, as less than 50% of mouse YCAY clusters are conserved at orthologous positions in the zebrafish genome. To study the relation between the evolution of tissue-specific splicing and YCAY clusters, we compared the brain-specific splicing of Nova-regulated exons in zebrafish, chicken, and mouse. The presence of YCAY clusters in lower vertebrates invariably predicted conservation of brain-specific splicing across species, whereas their absence in lower vertebrates correlated with a loss of alternative splicing. We hypothesize that evolution of Nova-regulated splicing in higher vertebrates proceeds mainly through changes in cis-acting elements, that tissue-specific splicing might in some cases evolve in a single step corresponding to evolution of a YCAY cluster, and that the conservation level of YCAY clusters relates to the functions encoded by the regulated RNAs.  (+info)

Author(s): Do, Jamie P; Cao, Kevin J; Wei, Sylvia; Laurent, Louise C; Parast, Mana M; Yang, Jerry | Abstract: Preeclampsia (PE) is a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy and one of the leading contributors to both maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Reliable diagnostic parameters unique to the disorder that accurately define and diagnose PE are currently unavailable. Recent studies have revealed that PE is accompanied by the accumulation of amyloidogenic deposits in the placenta and the presence of congophilic amyloid-like protein aggregates in the urine. Here, we evaluate the capability of an amyloid-targeting aryl cyano amide (ARCAM-1) fluorophore to identify PE patients from analysis of urine samples. Our results reveal that this probe can distinguish patients with PE from gestationally healthy patients and patients suffering from non-PE hypertension, highlighting the potential for amyloid-targeting fluorophores to help identify PE patients during pregnancy.

597) Charlie Chaplin. Charlie Chaplin, byname of Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin, (born April 16, 1889, London, England-died December 25, 1977, Corsier-sur-Vevey, Switzerland), British comedian, producer, writer, director, and composer who is widely regarded as the greatest comic artist of the screen and one of the most important figures in motion-picture history.. Early Life And Career. Chaplin was named after his father, a British music-hall entertainer. He spent his early childhood with his mother, the singer Hannah Hall, after she and his father separated, and he made his own stage debut at age five, filling in for his mother. The mentally unstable Hall was later confined to an asylum. Charlie and his half brother Sydney were sent to a series of bleak workhouses and residential schools.. Using his mothers show-business contacts, Charlie became a professional entertainer in 1897 when he joined the Eight Lancashire Lads, a clog-dancing act. His subsequent stage credits include a small role in ...

Currently, the physiological roles of amyloidogenic proteins (APs) in human brain, such as amyloid-β and α-synuclein, are elusive. Given that many APs arose by gene duplication and have been resistant against the pressures of natural selection, APs may be associated with some functions that are advantageous for survival of offspring. Nonetheless, evolvability is the sole physiological quality of APs that has been characterized in microorganisms such as yeast. Since yeast and human brain may share similar strategies in coping with diverse range of critical environmental stresses, the objective of this paper was to discuss the potential role of evolvability of APs in aging-associated neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimers disease and Parkinsons disease ...
Among glomerular diseases, even the very uncommon ones, fibrillary GN (FGN) has always been among the most poorly understood. From an early description as Congo red-negative amyloidosis-like glomerulopathy,1 its ultrastructural appearance has both captivated and confused renal pathologists. In the 1990s, it was hotly debated whether FGN was a variant of immunotactoid glomerulopathy (or vice versa) or a separate entity,2,3 despite clear differences between the two lesions with regard to the size, shape, and pattern of the fibrils by electron microscopy (EM) and in their association with hematologic malignancies, the latter being far more commonly associated with immunotactoid glomerulopathy.4 Although immuno-EM studies have suggested that the fibrils in FGN contain immune complexes rather than matrix components,5 its pathogenesis, including the antigen(s) within the immune complexes, has remained unclear, and perhaps as a result, attempts at treatment of FGN have been largely ...
In the field of neurobiology, there is great discussion about which particular species of amyloid-beta oligomers (AβOs) contributes to the pathogenesis of Alzheimers disease (AD), a progressive neurodegenerative disease. Previously, our group has found, using molecular weight cutoff filters (MWCO), that AβOs are primarily 100-300 kilodaltons (kDa). The goal of this project is to verify this finding using size exclusion chromatography (SEC). SEC can be used to determine AβO molecular weight according to the amount of time it takes the AβOs to pass through the SEC column. Overall, the project yielded results showing significant portion of AβOs are either |1300 kDa or around 13 kDa. We are currently investigating further reasons why the MWCO and SEC data yield very different results.
Public Release: 8-Jan-2016 ETH Zurich IMAGE: Scientists found in yeast cells protein aggregates (light green spots). As cells age and divide, these aggre
Dyes like CR are able to inhibit the aggregation of Aβ fibrils. Thus, a screening of a series of dyes including ABBB (1) was performed. Its main component 2 tested in an in vitro assay (i.e., ThT assay) showed good potency at inhibiting fibrils association. Congeners 4-9 have been designed and synthesized as inhibitors of Aβ aggregation. A number of these newly synthesized compounds have been found to be active in the ThT assay with IC(50) of 1-57.4 μM. The most potent compound of this series, 4k, showed micromolar activity in this test. Another potent derivative 4q (IC(50) = 5.6 μM) rapidly crossed the blood-brain barrier, achieving whole brain concentrations higher than in plasma. So 4q could be developed to find novel potent antiaggregating βA agents useful in Alzheimer disease as well as other neurological diseases characterized by deposits of amyloid aggregates.

Although the putative biological consequences of cross-seeding have not been investigated in detail, there are several studies suggesting a molecular cross-talk between misfolded proteins in vivo. Perhaps the most emblematic study of cross-seeding in animal models is the one involving Aβ and tau proteins. The simultaneous brain accumulation of these proteins is the main hallmark of AD. Studies in animal models using various transgenic mice revealed that Aβ is able to accelerate the aggregation of tau; however, it seems that tau aggregates do not have the same effect over Aβ [19], [20]. These findings suggest a possibly unidirectional cross-seeding. However, it is also possible that this outcome may be mediated by indirect processes, for example, Aβ aggregates may activate certain kinases responsible for tau phosphorylation, leading to higher misfolding and aggregation of this protein [21].. Another interaction that has been studied in some detail is between α-synuclein and the misfolded ...
en] Amyloidogenic model peptides are invaluable for investigating assembly mechanisms in disease related amyloids and in protein folding. During aggregation, such peptides can undergo bifurcation leading to fibrils or crystals, however the mechanisms of fibril-to-crystal conversion are unclear. We navigate herein the energy landscape of amyloidogenic peptides by studying a homologous series of hexapeptides found in animal, human and disease related proteins. We observe fibril-to-crystal conversion occurring within single aggregates via untwisting of twisted ribbon fibrils possessing saddle-like curvature and cross-sectional aspect ratios approaching unity. Changing sequence, pH or concentration shifts the growth towards larger aspect ratio species assembling into stable helical ribbons possessing mean-curvature. By comparing atomistic calculations of desolvation energies for association of peptides we parameterise a kinetic model, providing a physical explanation of fibril-to-crystal ...

Evidence suggests that metal ions bind directly to causative amyloidogenic proteins and modulate their aggregation into amyloids, considered to be a key event in the etiology of ND diseases. Apart from this well-documented binding of essential metals to amyloidogenic proteins, other, non-essential metal ions have been considered to be environmental hazards for neuronal disorders, but tight causative relations have yet to be established. The present article provides a review of the potential role of manganese, lead, and mercury as environmental risk factors in ND diseases, and covers in detail environmental availability of these metals, their uptake ...

Maybe their moms told them nobody likes a showoff. That would explain why many species of chameleon are hiding fluorescent bone bumps on their heads that scientists only just discovered. Chameleons also have independently moving eyeballs, superlative tongues and sophisticated color-changing skills. The animals might use their glowing head bumps as signals to each other. These patterns of dots are invisible to a human eye, but may light up deep blue to the eye of another chameleon in a shaded forest.. Scientists knew that chameleons have bony crests and bumps called tubercles on their skulls, and that these bone shapes vary between species. But we were always wondering about the function of the tubercles on the head, says David Prötzel, a herpetologist at Zoologische Staatssammlung München in Germany.. Then a photo on Flickr caught Prötzels attention. The picture showed a chameleon called Calumma gastroaenia. The photographer, Paul Bertner, had put a UV light over the lizard, and three tiny ...
The Mellers chameleon, sometimes called the giant one-horned chameleon, is mainland Africas largest chameleon species. It is bright green and yellow and, like all chameleons, can move its eyes independently.
