Transcriptional repression by the Drosophila giant protein: cis element positioning provides an alternative means of interpreting an effector gradient. (1/2991)

Early developmental patterning of the Drosophila embryo is driven by the activities of a diverse set of maternally and zygotically derived transcription factors, including repressors encoded by gap genes such as Kruppel, knirps, giant and the mesoderm-specific snail. The mechanism of repression by gap transcription factors is not well understood at a molecular level. Initial characterization of these transcription factors suggests that they act as short-range repressors, interfering with the activity of enhancer or promoter elements 50 to 100 bp away. To better understand the molecular mechanism of short-range repression, we have investigated the properties of the Giant gap protein. We tested the ability of endogenous Giant to repress when bound close to the transcriptional initiation site and found that Giant effectively represses a heterologous promoter when binding sites are located at -55 bp with respect to the start of transcription. Consistent with its role as a short-range repressor, as the binding sites are moved to more distal locations, repression is diminished. Rather than exhibiting a sharp 'step-function' drop-off in activity, however, repression is progressively restricted to areas of highest Giant concentration. Less than a two-fold difference in Giant protein concentration is sufficient to determine a change in transcriptional status of a target gene. This effect demonstrates that Giant protein gradients can be differentially interpreted by target promoters, depending on the exact location of the Giant binding sites within the gene. Thus, in addition to binding site affinity and number, cis element positioning within a promoter can affect the response of a gene to a repressor gradient. We also demonstrate that a chimeric Gal4-Giant protein lacking the basic/zipper domain can specifically repress reporter genes, suggesting that the Giant effector domain is an autonomous repression domain.  (+info)

Accelerated accumulation of somatic mutations in mice deficient in the nucleotide excision repair gene XPA. (2/2991)

Inheritable mutations in nucleotide excision repair (NER) genes cause cancer-prone human disorders, such as xeroderma pigmentosum, which are also characterized by symptoms of accelerated ageing. To study the impact of NER deficiency on mutation accumulation in vivo, mutant frequencies have been determined in liver and brain of 2-16 month old NER deficient XPA-/-, lacZ hybrid mice. While mutant frequencies in liver of 2-month old XPA-/-, lacZ mice were comparable to XPA+/-, lacZ and the lacZ parental strain animals, by 4 months of age mutant frequencies in the XPA-deficient mice were significantly increased by a factor of two and increased further until the age of 16 months. In brain, mutant frequencies were not found to increase with age. These results show that a deficiency in the NER gene XPA causes an accelerated accumulation of somatic mutations in liver but not in brain. This is in keeping with a higher incidence of spontaneous liver tumors reported earlier for XPA-/- mice after about 15 months of age.  (+info)

Adenoviral gene transfer into the normal and injured spinal cord: enhanced transgene stability by combined administration of temperature-sensitive virus and transient immune blockade. (3/2991)

This study characterized gene transfer into both normal and injured adult rat dorsal spinal cord using first (E1-/E3-) or second (E1-/E2A125/E3-, temperature-sensitive; ts) generation of replication-defective adenoviral (Ad) vectors. A novel immunosuppressive regimen aimed at blocking CD4/CD45 lymphocytic receptors was tested for improving transgene persistence. In addition, the effect of gene transfer on nociception was also evaluated. Seven days after treatment, numerous LacZ-positive cells were observed after transfection with either viral vector. By 21 days after transfection, beta-galactosidase staining was reduced and suggestive of ongoing cytopathology in both Ad-treated groups, despite the fact that the immunogenicity of LacZ/Adts appeared less when compared with that elicited by the LacZ/Ad vector. In contrast, immunosuppressed animals showed a significant (P < or = 0.05) increase in the number of LacZ-positive cells not displaying cytopathology. In these animals, a concomitant reduction in numbers of macrophages/microglia and CD4 and CD8 lymphocytes was observed. Only animals that received LacZ/Adts and immunosuppression showed transgene expression after 60 days. Similar results were observed in animals in which the L4-L5 dorsal roots were lesioned before transfection. Gene transfer into the dorsal spinal cord did not affect nociception, independent of the adenovirus vector. These results indicate that immune blockade of the CD4/CD45 lymphocytic receptors enhanced transgene stability in adult animals with normal or injured spinal cords and that persistent transgene expression in the spinal cord does not interfere with normal neural function.  (+info)

Transduction of glioma cells using a high-titer retroviral vector system and their subsequent migration in brain tumors. (4/2991)

The intracranial migration of transduced glioma cells was investigated in order to improve the treatment of malignant glioma by gene therapy using retroviral vectors. In this study, about half the volume of the tumor mass could be transduced in 14 days after only a single implantation of 3 x 10(5) retrovirus-producing cells into a tumor mass with a diameter of 5 mm. Moreover, we were able to follow the migration of glioma cells transduced by the lacZ-harboring retroviruses originating from the high-titer retrovirus-producing cells. Besides the importance of using a high-titer retroviral vector system, our results also indicate that the implantation site of the virus-producing cells and the interval between the implantation of the virus-producing cells and the subsequent administration of ganciclovir are important factors for the efficient killing of glioma cells.  (+info)

Murine matrix metalloproteinase 9 gene. 5'-upstream region contains cis-acting elements for expression in osteoclasts and migrating keratinocytes in transgenic mice. (5/2991)

Knowledge about the regulation of cell lineage-specific expression of extracellular matrix metalloproteinases is limited. In the present work, the murine matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9) gene was shown to contain 13 exons, and the 2.8-kilobase pair upstream region was found to contain several common promoter elements including a TATA box-like motif, three GC boxes, four AP-1-like binding sites, an AP-2 site, and three PEA3 consensus sequences that may be important for basic activity of the gene. In order to identify cell-specific regulatory elements, constructs containing varying lengths of the upstream region in front of a LacZ reporter gene were made and studied for expression in transgenic mice generated by microinjection into fertilized oocytes. Analyses of the mice revealed that the presence of sequences between -2722 and -7745 allowed for expression in osteoclasts and migrating keratinocytes, i. e. cells that have been shown to normally express the enzyme in vivo. The results represent the first in vivo demonstration of the location of cell-specific control elements in a matrix metalloproteinase gene and show that element(s) regulating most cell-specific activities of 92-kDa type collagenase are located in the -2722 to -7745 base pair region.  (+info)

Reduced differentiation potential of primary MyoD-/- myogenic cells derived from adult skeletal muscle. (6/2991)

To gain insight into the regeneration deficit of MyoD-/- muscle, we investigated the growth and differentiation of cultured MyoD-/- myogenic cells. Primary MyoD-/- myogenic cells exhibited a stellate morphology distinct from the compact morphology of wild-type myoblasts, and expressed c-met, a receptor tyrosine kinase expressed in satellite cells. However, MyoD-/- myogenic cells did not express desmin, an intermediate filament protein typically expressed in cultured myoblasts in vitro and myogenic precursor cells in vivo. Northern analysis indicated that proliferating MyoD-/- myogenic cells expressed fourfold higher levels of Myf-5 and sixfold higher levels of PEA3, an ETS-domain transcription factor expressed in newly activated satellite cells. Under conditions that normally induce differentiation, MyoD-/- cells continued to proliferate and with delayed kinetics yielded reduced numbers of predominantly mononuclear myocytes. Northern analysis revealed delayed induction of myogenin, MRF4, and other differentiation-specific markers although p21 was upregulated normally. Expression of M-cadherin mRNA was severely decreased whereas expression of IGF-1 was markedly increased in MyoD-/- myogenic cells. Mixing of lacZ-labeled MyoD-/- cells and wild-type myoblasts revealed a strict autonomy in differentiation potential. Transfection of a MyoD-expression cassette restored cytomorphology and rescued the differentiation deficit. We interpret these data to suggest that MyoD-/- myogenic cells represent an intermediate stage between a quiescent satellite cell and a myogenic precursor cell.  (+info)

Efflux-mediated aminoglycoside and macrolide resistance in Burkholderia pseudomallei. (7/2991)

Burkholderia pseudomallei, the causative agent of melioidosis, is intrinsically resistant to a wide range of antimicrobial agents including beta-lactams, aminoglycosides, macrolides, and polymyxins. We used Tn5-OT182 to mutagenize B. pseudomallei to identify the genes involved in aminoglycoside resistance. We report here on the identification of AmrAB-OprA, a multidrug efflux system in B. pseudomallei which is specific for both aminoglycoside and macrolide antibiotics. We isolated two transposon mutants, RM101 and RM102, which had 8- to 128-fold increases in their susceptibilities to the aminoglycosides streptomycin, gentamicin, neomycin, tobramycin, kanamycin, and spectinomycin. In addition, both mutants, in contrast to the parent, were susceptible to the macrolides erythromycin and clarithromycin but not to the lincosamide clindamycin. Sequencing of the DNA flanking the transposon insertions revealed a putative operon consisting of a resistance, nodulation, division-type transporter, a membrane fusion protein, an outer membrane protein, and a divergently transcribed regulatorprotein. Consistent with the presence of an efflux system, both mutants accumulated [3H] dihydro streptomycin, whereas the parent strain did not. We constructed an amr deletion strain, B. pseudomallei DD503, which was hypersusceptible to aminoglycosides and macrolides and which was used successfully in allelic exchange experiments. These results suggest that an efflux system is a major contributor to the inherent high-level aminoglycoside and macrolide resistance found in B. pseudomallei.  (+info)

Aging-specific expression of Drosophila hsp22. (8/2991)

hsp22 is among the least abundantly expressed Drosophila heat shock (hs) genes during both development and heat stress. In contrast, hsp22 was found to be the most abundantly expressed hs gene during Drosophila aging. During aging, hsp22 RNA was induced 60-fold in the head, with somewhat lower level induction in abdomen and thorax. Induction of the other hs gene RNAs was 150-fold, with particularly abundant expression in eye tissue. Aging-specific induction of hsp22 was reproduced by hsp22:lacZ fusion reporter constructs in transgenic flies. Analysis of specific promoter mutations in transgenic flies indicated that functional heat shock response elements are required for hsp22 induction during aging. Finally, comparison of hsp22 RNA and protein expression patterns suggests that aging-specific expression of hsp22 is regulated at both the transcriptional and the posttranscriptional levels. Aging-specific induction of hsp22 is discussed with regard to current evolutionary theories of aging.  (+info)

DNA viruses, such as herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), Simian virus 40 (SV40), and Cytomegaloviruses (CMV), start their replicative processes and transcription at specific nuclear domains known as ND10 (nuclear domain 10, also called PML bodies). It has been previously determined that for HSV-1 and SV40, a short DNA sequence and its binding protein are required and sufficient for cell localization of viral DNA replication and gene transcription. Our recent observations provide evidence that a foreign (not endogenous) DNA/protein complex in the nucleus recruits ND10 proteins. First, the complexes formed from the bacterial lac operator DNA and its binding protein (lac repressor), or from HPV11 (human papillomavirus 11) origin DNA and its binding protein (E2), co-localized with different ND10 proteins. Second, the HSV-1 amplicon without inserted lac operator DNA repeats distributed in the nucleus randomly, whereas the amplicon with lac operator DNA repeats associated with ND10, suggesting that DNA

The first gene in the E. coli lac operon is lacZ, which encodes ß-galactosidase (ß-gal). The active form of ß-gal is a tetramer and hydrolyses lactose into glucose and galactose. Deleting amino acids 11-41 of ß-gal (called the lacZ?M15 mutation) means the enzyme is unable to form a tetramer and is non-functional (Langley et al. 1975). It was discovered that supplying amino acids 1-59 (the a-peptide) of ß-gal in trans (separately) allowed the truncated ß-gal to form tetramers and function again (Ullmann et al. 1967; Langley et al. 1975). Rescuing ß-gal by supplying the a-peptide in this way was termed a-complementation. Later, Vieira and colleagues (Vieira & Messing 1982) realised that a-complementation could be used to screen E. coli colonies for the presence of inserts. They cloned the a-peptide coding region into a pUC plasmid and then introduced a multiple cloning site (MCS) into the middle of that region.

The first gene in the E. coli lac operon is lacZ, which encodes ß-galactosidase (ß-gal). The active form of ß-gal is a tetramer and hydrolyses lactose into glucose and galactose. Deleting amino acids 11-41 of ß-gal (called the lacZ?M15 mutation) means the enzyme is unable to form a tetramer and is non-functional (Langley et al. 1975). It was discovered that supplying amino acids 1-59 (the a-peptide) of ß-gal in trans (separately) allowed the truncated ß-gal to form tetramers and function again (Ullmann et al. 1967; Langley et al. 1975). Rescuing ß-gal by supplying the a-peptide in this way was termed a-complementation. Later, Vieira and colleagues (Vieira & Messing 1982) realised that a-complementation could be used to screen E. coli colonies for the presence of inserts. They cloned the a-peptide coding region into a pUC plasmid and then introduced a multiple cloning site (MCS) into the middle of that region.

Animal models for carcinogenesis of the oral cavity are limited, although this disease is often fatal or disfiguring and its incidence in the USA is ~30 000 cases/year. Short-term whole-animal models for this disease should prove valuable in the investigation of factors affecting oral carcinogenesis. In this study we observed that a group of oral carcinogens are clearly mutagenic in the lacZ transgenic mouse oral cavity. The carcinogens 4-nitroquinoline-N-oxide (4-NQO), benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P), N-nitroso-N-methylurea (NMU), 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK), nitrosonornicotine (NNN) and 7,12-dimethylbenzanthracene (DMBA) were all mutagenic in a mixture of pooled oral tissues (gingival, buccal, pharyngeal and sublingual) and in the tongue. All agents except DMBA (which was swabbed in the oral cavity) and B[a]P (by gavage) were given in drinking water for 2-4 weeks followed by a 2 week expression period before killing. With one exception, groups of 4-5 female mice were treated. ...
lac repressor binds simultaneously to two sites near the promoter of the lac operon. Repressor-binding sites are called operators. One operator (O1) is adjacent to the promoter, and the other (O2) is within the coding region of lacZ. When bound to both operators, the repressor causes the DNA to form a stable loop that can be seen in electron micrographs of the complex formed between lac repressor and DNA (bottom figure). The interaction of lac repressor with the operator sequences may block transcription by preventing the binding of RNA polymerase to the lac promoter. However, it is now known that, in some cases, both lac repressor and RNA polymerase can bind to the promoter at the same time. Thus, the repressor may also block transcription initiation by preventing formation of the open complex and promoter clearance. A schematic diagram of lac repressor bound to DNA in the presence of RNA polymerase is shown in the figure on the right. [See Mondays Molecule #61 for another view.] The diagram ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Mutation frequency and type during ageing in mouse seminiferous tubules. AU - Martin, Sandra L.. AU - Hopkins, Craig L.. AU - Naumer, Anne. AU - Dollé, Martijn E T. AU - Vijg, Jan. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001. N2 - Mutations arise in the germline by errors of replication, recombination and repair, and the movement of transposable elements. Transgenic mice bearing reporter genes such as lacZ have proven useful for measurements of spontaneous and induced mutation frequencies, as well as studies of the effects of ageing. In this study, testicular DNA from lacZ transgenic mice was examined for age-related effects on mutation frequency and type. The recovered transgene was tested for simple substitutions and rearrangements including transposition of endogenous mobile elements. There was no evidence for either an age-related accumulation of mutations, or for the insertion of retrotransposons into the lacZ reporter gene in the testis. We conclude that the frequency of retrotransposition of ...
Advances in understanding the role of dendritic cells (DCs) as the major antigen (Ag)-presenting cell type of the immune system combined with the recent development of methods for the ex vivo expansion of human DCs have opened the possibility for the transfer of tumor Ags to DCs with a view toward tumor immunotherapy. In this study, we examined the feasibility of Ag transfer to cultured human DCs using the host range-restricted avipoxvirus, fowlpoxvirus (FWPV). FWPV was found to infect and express a lacZ marker gene in a number of mammalian cell lines of fibroblastic, epithelial, and hemopoietic lineage origins. LacZ recombinant FWPV (rFWPV) was found subsequently to infect human DCs that had been cultured ex vivo from peripheral blood monocytes. Using rFWPV containing lacZ under the control of a vaccinia virus (VV) early/late promoter (p7.5K) and a 10 plaque-forming units per cell multiplicity of infection, ,80% of cells expressed the lacZ marker gene. Quantitative analysis showed that the ...
Having demonstrated that PEMF has a potent effect on endothelial cells in vitro, we examined whether PEMF was able to stimulate angiogenesis in vivo. Matrigel is a soluble basement membrane preparation, and when implanted s.c. supports vascular ingrowth. Matrigel was injected s.c. into tie2/lacZ transgenic mice that were housed in cages emitting PEMF for 8 h a day or control cages. After 3, 10, and 14 days, there was significantly greater vascular ingrowth into the matrix in PEMF-treated animals, confirmed by staining specific for endothelial markers CD31 and Tie-2. PEMF increased the vascular ingrowth more than twofold by day 3 (13.3±0.41 vs. 5.8±0.28 cells/hpf; P,0.01). This increase in vascular ingrowth persisted through days 10 and 14 (16.6±0.49 vs 12.6±0.43 cells/hpf; P,0.01, and 19.4±0.55 vs. 14.8±0.40 cells/hpf; P,0.01, respectivelLISA confirmed a twofold increase in FGF-2 in PEMF-treated matrigel, but demfactors TPO, Ang-2, and EGF (data not shown).

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Gene transfer and expression of exogenous genetic information coding for an immunogenic protein in antigen presenting cells (APCs) can promote an immune response. This was investigated by retroviral transfer of a marker gene into CD34+ derived APCs. DESIGN AND METHODS: To achieve long term expression of a specific transgene in APCs, G-CSF mobilized peripheral blood CD34+ cell populations were retrovirally transduced with the bacterial nlsLacZ, a marker gene used here as a model, in the presence of IL-3, IL-6, GM-CSF and SCF prior to being induced to differentiate into dendritic and macrophage cells by GM-CSF and TNF-a. RESULTS: Addition of IL-4 was found to induce dendritic differentiation preferentially by inhibiting proliferation and differentiation of the macrophage lineage. As assessed by X-Gal staining, LacZ gene expression was observed in cells from both the dendritic lineage (CD1a+/CD14-) which still exhibits the highest immunostimulatory activity in mixed ...

The geologic characteristics for the Lac Cinquante, J4 and Ray deposits are very similar. Separated by only 1,800 metres and exhibiting the same general trends, it is likely that these three deposits represent the same, or related mineralized structures. Deposits in the Lac 50 Trend are basement hosted, vein-hydrothermal type. The emplacement of uranium is structurally controlled, often associated with a graphite-chlorite tuffaceous metasediment interlayered in Archean metavolcanics. Mineralization consists of disseminated and patchy pitchblende with sulphides within fracture controlled, brecciated, hematite-quartz-carbonate veins that can occur in either the host shear or tuff unit. Potential also exists for unconformity-style uranium deposits to occur on the Angilak Property. The Lac Cinquante deposit is comprised of three distinct mineralized sections occurring over 3.8 kilometres of strike length and interpreted to be off-set by faults. The central Main Lac Cinquante zone is the largest, ...

Purpose: : To develop a mouse line in which a gene of interest can be removed in keratocytes-specific manner upon induction by doxycycline. Methods: : Two transgenes including Kera3.2-int-rtTA and tet-O-Cre were co-microinjected into the fertilized mouse eggs to create transgenic mice. The Kera3.2-int-rtTA /tet-O-Cre transgenic mice were crossed with reporter Rosa26-LacZ mice to obtain Kera3.2-int-rtTA /tet-O-Cre/Rosa26-LacZ triple transgenic mice. The Cre activity was assessed by the detection of whole mount X-gal staining in corneal stroma of triple transgenic mice after administration of doxycycline via drinking water and chow. Results: : We obtained two independent transgenic founder lines in which the Kera3.2-int-rtTA and tet-O-Cre transgenes were co-segregated at the chromosome level. Administration of doxycycline (Dox) to transgenic Kera3.2-int-rtTA /tet-O-Cre mice did not induce expression of LacZ. The Kera3.2-int-rtTA /tet-O-Cre/Rosa26-LacZ triple transgenic mice showed a little bit ...
We have used site-directed mutagenesis to alter bases in lacZ near the region encoding essential residues in the active site of beta-galactosidase. The altered sequences generate runs of six or seven identical base pairs which create a frameshift, resulting in a Lac- phenotype. Reversion to Lac+ in each strain can occur only by a specific frameshift at these sequences. Monotonous runs of As (or of Ts on the opposite strand) and Gs (or Cs) have been constructed, as has an alternating -C-G- sequence. These specific frameshift indicator strains complement a set of six previously described strains which detect each of the base substitutions. We have examined a variety of mutagens and mutators for their ability to cause reversion to Lac+. Surprisingly, frameshifts are well stimulated at many of these runs by ethyl methanesulfonate, N-methyl-N-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine and 2-amino-purine, mutagens not widely known to induce frameshifts. A comparison of ethyl methanesulfonate, ...
Background Vaccination against tumour-associated antigens is one approach to elicit anti-tumour responses. We investigated the effect of polynucleotide (DNA) vaccination using a model antigen (E. coli lacZ) in a syngeneic gliosarcoma model (9L). Methods Fisher 344 rats were vaccinated thrice by intramuscular injection of a lacZ-encoding or a control plasmid in weekly intervals. One week after the last vaccination, lacZ-expressing 9L cells were implanted into the striatum. Results After 3 weeks, in lacZ-vaccinated animals the tumours were significantly smaller than in control-vaccinated animals. In cytotoxic T cell assays lysis rates of ,50 % could only be observed in a few of the lacZ-vaccinated animals. This response was directed against lacZ-expressing and parental 9L cells but not against syngeneic MADB 106 adenocarcinoma cells. In Elispot assays interferon-γ production was observed upon stimulation with 9LlacZ and 9L wild-type but not MADB 106 cells. This response was higher for ...
When creating a LACP Link Aggregation, all Force10 switches (with the exception of the I/O Aggregator) have two transmit timer values. This value determines how often the ports send LACPDUs. The default is one LACPDU sent every 1 second. You can also configure it to send one every 30 seconds with the lacp long-timeout command. Long-timeout is best practice and recommended for the Force10 switches.. When the LACPDU transmit timer values mismatch, this can cause intermittent ungrouping of ports, thus causing connection issues. The following command and output helps determine how many LACPDUs being sent and received. This example uses LACP 10.. FTOS#clear lacp 10 counters.

Spontaneous mutants arise among nondividing populations of Escherichia coli in apparent response to selective conditions. In this report we investigate several hypotheses to account for the role of selection in the production of these directed or adaptive mutations. We found that the Lac+ phenotypes of some mutants that arise late after lactose selection are due to suppressor mutations that are unlinked to the mutant lacZ allele; thus the production of these Lac+ mutants does not require an information flow from successful proteins back to the DNA that encodes them. Transcriptional induction of the lac operon, even in the presence of another, utilizable carbon source, did not stimulate the occurrence of Lac+ mutants in the absence of lactose, indicating that the role of the selective agent is not merely to induce transcription. The absence of two DNA repair pathways-methyl-directed mismatch repair and alkylation repair-also did not result in an accumulation of Lac+ mutants in the absence of ...
Explanation of A & R The function of (3-galactosidase enzyme in lactose metabolism is to form glucose by cleaving lactose. Thus if both glucose and lactose are present in the growth medium, activity of lac operon is not needed, and indeed, no p-galactosidase is formed until virtually all of the glucose in the culture medium is consumed. The lack of synthesis of p-galactosidase is a result of lack of synthesis of lac mRNA. No lac mRNA is made in the presence of glucose, because in addition to an inducer for inactivating the lac i repressor, another element (cAMP-CAP) is needed for initiating lac mRNA synthesis. The activity of this element is regulated by the concentration of glucose ...

Bourgeois studied the regulation of gene expression using the bacterial lactose (lac) operon as a model system. In the 1960s, when the nature of the regulatory molecule was still unknown, she demonstrated that the lac repressor was a protein. She used that system to carry out the first characterization of the interaction of a regulatory protein with DNA. She later studied the regulation of genes in animal cells and eventually identified compounds that could be useful to reverse multidrug resistance in cancer. More recently, Bourgeois has turned her attention to the history of science-specifically, the early history of the Salk Institute. She is the author of the book, Genesis of the Salk Institute: The Epic of its Founders ...
