Identifying genetic variants that lead to discernible phenotypes is the core of Mendelian genetics. An approach that considers embryonic lethality as a bona fide Mendelian phenotype has the potential to reveal novel genetic causes, which will further our understanding of early human development at a molecular level. Consanguineous families in which embryonic lethality segregates as a recessive Mendelian phenotype offer a unique opportunity for high throughput novel gene discovery as has been established for other recessive postnatal phenotypes. We have studied 24 eligible families using autozygosity mapping and whole-exome sequencing. In addition to revealing mutations in genes previously linked to embryonic lethality in severe cases, our approach revealed seven novel candidate genes (THSD1, PIGC, UBN1, MYOM1, DNAH14, GALNT14, and FZD6). A founder mutation in one of these genes, THSD1, which has been linked to vascular permeability, accounted for embryonic lethality in three of the study families.
ccdB is a lethal gene that targets DNA gyrase. A strain of E. coli with a specific mutation in the gyrase (such as DB3.1, see E. coli genotypes) can be used to propagate ccdB. The lethal gene is useful for ensuring that the plasmid containing it cannot be propagated in standard E. coli strains (for cloning purposes). The ccdB positive-selection marker acts by killing the background of cells with no cloned DNA, only cells containing a recombinant DNA giving rise to viable clones (insertional inactivation of ccdB). ...
The present invention provides recombinant viral vectors carrying a vector construct which directs the expression of a gene product (e.g., HSVTK) that activates a compound with little or no cytotoxicity into a toxic product. Also provided are methods of destroying or inhibiting pathogenic agents in a warm blooded animal, comprising the step of administering to the animal a viral vector such as that described above, in order to inhibit or destroy the pathogenic agent.
Dominant lethal mutation assay was carried out on rats after being treated with graded doses of ethanol extract of the seeds of Mucuna urens. Male albino rats (Wistar strain) were caged in three groups labeled, groups II, III and IV and treated with three different dosages of the ethanol extract of the seeds of M. urens; 70, 140 and 210 mg/kg body weight (BW), respectively, for 14 days. The positive control animals (group I), were treated with distilled water for the entire period. At the end of the feeding period of two weeks, they were co-habited with virgin female albino rats at a ratio of 1:1 for 3 days. 14 days after mating, the females were sacrificed for the dominant lethal mutation assay. The results of the dominant lethal mutation assay showed that only female rats in group II had implants on the uterine horn, of all the treated groups. The rats in groups III and IV did not have any implants at all. Biological evaluations (pre-implantation losses) carried out showed 0, 76, 100 and 100%
Functionally interacting perturbations, such as synergistic drugs pairs or synthetic lethal gene pairs, are of key interest in both pharmacology and functional genomics. However, to find such pairs by traditional screening methods is both time consuming and costly. We present a novel computational-experimental framework for efficient identification of synergistic target pairs, applicable for screening of systems with sizes on the order of current drug, small RNA or SGA (Synthetic Genetic Array) libraries (|1000 targets). This framework exploits the fact that the response of a drug pair in a given system, or a pair of genes propensity to interact functionally, can be partly predicted by computational means from (i) a small set of experimentally determined target pairs, and (ii) pre-existing data (e.g. gene ontology, PPI) on the similarities between targets. Predictions are obtained by a novel matrix algebraic technique, based on cyclical projections onto convex sets. We demonstrate the efficiency of the
Although this research uses mice, the findings are likely to be highly relevant to complications during human pregnancy and the study highlights the need for more work to be done on investigating development of the placenta during human pregnancies.. The placenta is vital for normal pregnancy progression and embryo development in most animals that give birth to live young, including humans. It provides a unique and highly specialised interface between the embryo and the mother, ensuring an adequate provision of nutrients and oxygen to the embryo. The placenta is also involved in waste disposal from the embryo and produces important hormones that help sustain pregnancy and promote fetal growth. Although previous research has highlighted the pivotal role of the placenta for a healthy pregnancy, its potential contribution to pregnancy complications and birth defects continues to be overlooked.. Scientists call mutations that cause death in the womb embryonic lethal. Mouse lethal genes are enriched ...
Background: Functional activation of oncogenic K-Ras signaling pathway plays an important role in the early events of colorectal carcinogenesis (CRC). K-Ras proto-oncogene is involved in 35-40% of CRC cases. Mutations in the Ras gene trigger the transduction of proliferative and anti-apoptotic signals, even in the absence of extra cellular stimuli. The objective of the current study was to use a gene-targeting approach to kill human CRC cells selectively harboring mutated K-Ras. Results: A recombinant adenovirus that carries a lethal gene, PUMA, under the control of a Ras responsive promoter (Ad-Py4-SV40-PUMA) was used selectively to target CRC cells (HCT116, SW480, DLD1 and RIE-Ras) that possess a hyperactive Ras pathway while using HT29 and RIE cells as a control that harbors wild type Ras and exhibit very low Ras activity. Control vector, without the Ras responsive promoter elements was used to assess the specificity of our gene therapy approach. Both adenoviral vectors were assed in vitro ...
I am responsible for teaching insect physiology and toxicology. My research started on the physiology of the insect circulatory system then switched to insect neurophysiological techniques aimed at describing the mode of action of neurotoxic insecticides. I briefly studied insecticide resistance in cotton pests coinciding with the introduction of synthetic pyrethroids, and then worked on the physiology of cotton pests, especially diapause in the pink bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders). I was asked by USDA-APHIS to explore strategies for improving the sterile insect technique for controlling pink bollworm by replacing radiation with conditional lethal genes. In the summer of 2004 we created our first transgenic pink bollworm with a functioning lethal RIDL gene supplied by Luke Alphey of Oxford University. Our collaborators in USDA-APHIS have applied for permits to field release these transgenic insect strains meant for population suppression. Work on insect transformation brought us in ...
These mosquitoes are genetically engineered to kill - their own children.. Researchers on Sunday reported initial signs of success from the first release into the environment of mosquitoes engineered to pass a lethal gene to their offspring, killing them before they reach adulthood.. The results, and other work elsewhere, could herald an age in which genetically modified insects will be used to help control agricultural pests and insect-borne diseases like dengue fever and malaria.. But the research is arousing concern about possible unintended effects on public health and the environment, because once genetically modified insects are released, they cannot be recalled.. Authorities in the Florida Keys, which in 2009 experienced its first cases of dengue fever in decades, hope to conduct an open-air test of the modified mosquitoes as early as December, pending approval from the Agriculture Department.. "Its a more ecologically friendly way to control mosquitoes than spraying insecticides," said ...

and Biotechs experiment becomes our disaster. Action Alert!. In 2013, a British biotech company, Oxitec, unleased nearly half a million genetically modified mosquitoes in Brazil in an attempt to reduce mosquito-borne diseases. But the experiment has not gone to plan, according to a new paper: the experiment has resulted in the unintended contamination of the local mosquito population, despite the assurances from Oxitec that this would not happen. We must make sure similar experiments are not allowed to occur on American soil.. Oxitec developed a GM mosquito that has a dominant lethal gene that is supposed to result in infertile offspring. The goal of the GM mosquito experiment was to reduce the number of mosquitoes while not affecting the genetic integrity of the population. It appears, though, that a certain percentage of the offspring of the genetically modified mosquitoes are surviving.. This genetic intermingling could have far-reaching consequences. The mosquitoes in Brazil, as a result of ...
We would like to explain that the term LETHAL WHITE (discovered while doing research) is simply a term (not the lethal gene found in Paint horses with Overo Lethal White Syndrome in which the affected foal dies within 72 hours) referring to either a Blue Merle or Red Merle Aussie, born of a Merle-to-Merle breeding, who inherited 2 merle genes at birth. For a detailed explanation, please read this article The Trouble With Merle by C.A. Sharp. We chose to use this term in our campaign to identify these particular Aussies. We also hope to lessen the confusion between Lethals and Pattern Whites. Some people feel this term was created by breeders to justify culling (killing at birth) these white pups. Others feel it is derogatory to those wonderful white Aussies that exist and excel. We strongly believe it is a term beneficial to bring about awareness. Our use of the term Lethal White (also known as homozygous or double merle and considered more politically correct terms) represents the ...
Its a statistical certainty that we possess more lethal genes that activate in afterwards daily life than in early daily life. As a result, to extend lifetime, we should have the ability to avoid these genes from switching on, and we should always have the ability to accomplish that by "determining improvements in the internal chemical atmosphere of the overall body that occur all through aging... and by simulating the superficial chemical Attributes of a younger physique".[ninety four ...
Sequencing of tumor genomes has shown that many loss-of-function alterations exist in cancer cells. Some of these alterations are a product of the cancerous progression of such cells, while others play a causative role. Unlike gain-of-function or overexpression alterations, these loss-of-function alterations are difficult to target directly, meaning that alternative approaches are necessary. In this case, such alterations can be specifically targeted through utilizing synthetic lethal interactions, whereby simultaneous inhibition of a particular interacting partner gene causes lethality in the context of a previously inactivated gene. Such a loss-of-function alteration occurs in the case of the EPHB6 receptor tyrosine kinase, which is downregulated in multiple cancer types. This downregulation of EPHB6, along with its inherent anti-malignant properties, make it a logical target for the synthetic lethal approach. In my thesis, I describe the use of a large-scale genome-wide screen of EPHB6 in ...
Thirty-four transgenic mouse strains, each carrying a single proviral insert, were generated by infection of preimplantation and postimplantation embryos with retroviruses. Animals homozygous for proviral integrations were derived for all strains with the exception of Mov 24, where the provirus is inserted on the Y chromosome, and Mov 34. Embryos homozygous at the Mov 34 locus develop normally to the blastocyst stage and die shortly after implantation, indicating that virus integration resulted in a recessive lethal mutation. The provirus and flanking sequences were cloned and the virus was mapped to the 5 side of an abundantly and ubiquitously transcribed gene. Similar to the previously derived Mov 13 mutation, proviral integration at the Mov 34 locus interferes with the expression of the adjacent gene. These and our previous results indicate that of a total of 48 proviral integrations in the germ line, two resulted in transgenic mouse strains with recessive lethal mutations.

Cancer is a leading cause of death throughout the World. A limitation of many current chemotherapeutic approaches is that their cytotoxic effects are not restricted to cancer cells, and adverse side effects can occur within normal tissues. Consequently, novel strategies are urgently needed to better target cancer cells. As we approach the era of personalized medicine, targeting the specific molecular defect(s) within a given patients tumor will become a more effective treatment strategy than traditional approaches that often target a given cancer type or sub-type. Synthetic genetic interactions are now being examined for their therapeutic potential and are designed to target the specific genetic and epigenetic phenomena associated with tumor formation, and thus are predicted to be highly selective. In general, two complementary approaches have been employed, including synthetic lethality and synthetic dosage lethality, to target aberrant expression and/or function associated with tumor suppressor genes

Approximately one-third of all mammalian genes are essential for life. Phenotypes resulting from knockouts of these genes in mice have provided tremendous insight into gene function and congenital disorders. As part of the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium effort to generate and phenotypically characterize 5,000 knockout mouse lines, here we identify 410 lethal genes during the production of the first 1,751 unique gene knockouts. Using a standardized phenotyping platform that incorporates high-resolution 3D imaging, we identify phenotypes at multiple time points for previously uncharacterized genes and additional phenotypes for genes with previously reported mutant phenotypes. Unexpectedly, our analysis reveals that incomplete penetrance and variable expressivity are common even on a defined genetic background. In addition, we show that human disease genes are enriched for essential genes, thus providing a dataset that facilitates the prioritization and validation of mutations identified in

Ubiquitin regulates a myriad of important cellular processes through covalent attachment to its substrates. A classic role for ubiquitin is to flag proteins for destruction by the proteasome. Recent studies indicate that ubiquitin-binding proteins (e.g. Rad23, Dsk2, Rpn10) play a pivotal role in transferring ubiquitylated proteins to the proteasome. However, the specific role of these ubiquitin receptors remains poorly defined. A key to unraveling the functions of these ubiquitin receptors is to identify their cellular substrates and biological circuits they are involved in. Although many strategies have been developed for substrate isolation, the identification of physiological targets of proteolytic pathways has proven to be quite challenging. Using a genome-wide functional screen, we have identified 11 yeast genes that cause slower growth upon their overexpression in cells lacking two ubiquitin-binding proteins Rad23 and Dsk2. Our results suggest that proper functioning of Rad23 and Dsk2 is required
Twenty-one X-linked recessive lethal and sterile mutations balanced by an unlinked X-chromosome duplication have been identified following EMS treatment of the small nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans. The mutations have been assigned by complementation analysis to 14 genes, four of which have more than one mutant allele. Four mutants, all alleles, are temperature-sensitive embryonic lethals. Twelve mutants, in ten genes, are early larval lethals. TWO mutants are late larval lethals, and the expression of one of these is influenced by the number of X chromosomes in the genotype. Two mutants are maternal-effect lethals; for both, oocytes made by mutant hermaphrodites are rescuable by wild-type sperm. One of the maternal-effect lethals and two larval lethals are allelic. One mutant makes defective sperm. The lethals and steriles have been mapped by recombination and by complementation testing against 19 deficiencies identified after X-ray treatment. The deficiencies divide the region, about 15% of ...

I began my research career in the laboratory of Dr. Sarah Bray at the University of Cambridge. There, I studied the direct transcriptional outputs of Notch signaling and crosstalk with the EGFR pathway using Drosophila as a model system. From this work, I gained valuable experience working with transcriptomics datasets and developed an appreciation of the network-like organization of signaling pathways. In addition, I realized the advantages of using model organisms such as Drosophila to tease apart the mechanisms of complex systems relevant to mammalian models and humans.. For my postdoctoral work, I joined Dr. Norbert Perrimons laboratory at Harvard Medical School. Here, my interest in signaling networks led me to develop combinatorial screening methods to identify synthetic lethal interactions in a high-throughput manner. A synthetic lethal interaction is a relationship between two genes where simultaneous disruption of both is lethal but disruption of either gene alone is not. Knowledge of ...
Supplementary MaterialsData_Sheet_1. and KDM5C attenuation affected DNA harm response and improved DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs), and reduced advancement of UV-irradiated embryos. Results from this research exposed that both KDM5B and KDM5C are essential regulators of early advancement in porcine embryos as their attenuation modified H3K4 and H3K9 methylation patterns, perturbed embryo genome activation, and reduced DNA damage restoration capability.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Genome-scale gene/reaction essentiality and synthetic lethality analysis. AU - Suthers, Patrick F.. AU - Zomorrodi, Alireza. AU - Maranas, Costas D.. PY - 2009/1/20. Y1 - 2009/1/20. N2 - Synthetic lethals are to pairs of non-essential genes whose simultaneous deletion prohibits growth. One can extend the concept of synthetic lethality by considering gene groups of increasing size where only the simultaneous elimination of all genes is lethal, whereas individual gene deletions are not. We developed optimization-based procedures for the exhaustive and targeted enumeration of multi-gene (and by extension multi-reaction) lethals for genome-scale metabolic models. Specifically, these approaches are applied to iAF1260, the latest model of Escherichia coli, leading to the complete identification of all double and triple gene and reaction synthetic lethals as well as the targeted identification of quadruples and some higher-order ones. Graph representations of these synthetic lethals ...
One of the major challenges of developmental biology is understanding the inductive and morphogenetic processes that shape the vertebrate embryo. In a large-scale genetic screen for zygotic effect, embryonic lethal mutations in zebrafish we have identified 25 mutations that affect specification of cell fates and/or cellular rearrangements during gastrulation. These mutations define at least 14 complementation groups, four of which correspond to previously identified genes. Phenotypic analysis of the ten novel loci revealed three groups of mutations causing distinct effects on cell fates in the gastrula. One group comprises mutations that lead to deficiencies in dorsal mesodermal fates and affect central nervous system patterning. Mutations from the second group affect formation of ventroposterior embryonic structures. We suggest that mutations in these two groups identify genes necessary for the formation, maintenance or function of the dorsal organizer and the ventral signaling pathway, ...
Here, we demonstrated the feasibility of a chemical synthetic lethality screen in cultured MEFs using a double-label fluorescence system. The major challenge in the present work has been to identify a replicon that can stably replicate in MEFs while under selection and decay spontaneously at a reasonable rate on removal of selection pressure. Our initial attempt, which employed polyoma virus replicons, failed. These replicons, containing wild-type or mutated enhancer/origin of DNA replication and encoding polyoma large T antigen, were shown previously to be capable of replicating in either somatic mouse cells (16) or pluripotent embryonal mouse cells such as EC cells (17, 18) or mouse ES cells (19), respectively. However, we found out that these polyoma-based replicons could not replicate in MEFs, which are late embryonal mouse cells. In contrast, employment of the EBV-based episomal survival plasmid, previously used in human cells (13), turned out to be suitable for synthetic lethality ...

Global fitness analysis makes use of a genomic library of tagged deletion strains. We used this approach to study the effect of chitosan, which causes plasma membrane stress. The data were analyzed using T-profiler, which was based on determining the sensitivities of groups of deletion strains to chitosan, as defined by Gene Ontology (GO) and by genomic synthetic lethality screens, in combination with t statistics. The chitosan-hypersensitive groups included a group of deletion strains characterized by a defective HOG (high-osmolarity glycerol) signaling pathway, indicating that the HOG pathway is required for counteracting chitosan-induced stress. Consistent with this, activation of this pathway in wild-type cells by hypertonic conditions offered partial protection against chitosan, whereas hypotonic conditions sensitized the cells to chitosan. Other chitosan-hypersensitive groups were defective in RNA synthesis and processing, actin cytoskeleton organization, protein N-glycosylation, ...
Triple-negative breast cancers (TNBC) are the most aggressive subtype of breast cancer and account for roughly 15% of human breast cancers. No effective targeted therapies are currently available against these tumors, at least in part due to their genetic and epigenetic heterogeneity. Yet, TNBCs are commonly enriched for cells arrested in a progenitor-like state. We therefore performed a genome-wide siRNA lethality screen to identify selective TNBC dependencies associated with this particular phenotype in vitro. These studies led to the identification of several spliceosome genes, including the core splicing factor SF3B1, as selectively and recurrently essential for progenitor-like (or basal-A) TNBC cell lines. On this basis, we examined the antitumor effect of E7107, a clinically tested SF3B1 inhibitor, on multiple TNBC cell lines. In vitro, treatment with E7107 for 24-48 hr selectively killed basal-A cell lines relative to differentiated luminal cell lines, decreasing viability by ≈40% or ...

The genetic organization of interval 62B3-4 to 62D3-4 on the Drosophila third chromosome was investigated. The region (designated DRE) includes four known loci: Roughened (R; 3-1.4), defined by a dominant mutation disrupting eye morphology; the nonvital locus Aprt, structural gene for adenine phosphoribosyltransferase; Dras3, a homolog of the vertebrate ras oncogene; and 1(3)ecdysoneless (1(3)ecd), a gene that has been implicated in the regulation of larval molting hormone (ecdysteroid) synthesis. Overlapping chromosomal deletions of the region were generated by gamma-ray-induced reversion of the R mutation. Recessive lethal mutations were isolated based upon failure to complement the recessive lethality of Df(3L)RR2, a deletion of the DRE region that removes 16-18 polytene chromosome bands. A total of 117 mutations were isolated following ethyl methanesulfonate and gamma-ray mutagenesis. These and two additional define 13 lethal complementation groups. Mutations at two loci were recovered at ...

We herein describe a new syndrome of immunodeficiency caused by hypomorphic mutations in the Artemis gene. The mutations resulted in truncations of the Artemis protein in the last exon, leaving intact the metallo-β-lactamase domain, in both studied kindreds. Hypomorphic mutations in NHEJ proteins encoding genes have also been described in DNA ligase IV (31). While complete DNA ligase IV KO is embryonic-lethal in mice (9, 10), development of both B and T lymphocytes can occur in DNA ligase IV-deficient patients with hypomorphic mutations. Similarly, hypomorphic mutations of the Artemis gene are compatible with low-level in vivo V(D)J recombination, as shown by the presence of both polyclonal B and T lymphocytes in these patients. The residual activity of Artemis translates into an absence of N diversity at the V(D)J junctions in these T cells, a situation reminiscent of that observed in Ku86 KO mice (29, 32). This suggests a possible requirement (and interaction?) for Artemis in the recruitment ...

In order for a project to be successful, the project would have to have parts that would help slow the energy that would surely break the egg without a protective barrier. If I were to do this project again, I would probably add more sponges tot the Inside sides of the construction paper basket and add little pen springs on the bottom of he basket. I would add more side sponges because when we did the actual dropping of the egg, I noticed that the whole basket fell to its side when it reached the ground.. By adding more sponge, this would add more cushion to absorb the kinetic energy. I would add the little pen springs on the bottom of the basket so that the whole baskets impact could be absorbed, not only the egg being protected, but also the sponges. By adding these modifications, the egg may be able to withstand an even higher fall than a two story drop because of the extra cushions that would be able to absorb the energy.. ...
