*  Only a subset of the binary cell fate decisions mediated by Numb/Notch signaling in Drosophila sensory organ lineage requires...
In Drosophila, an adult external sensory organ (bristle) consists of four distinct cells which arise from a sensory organ precursor cell via two rounds of asymmetric divisions. The sensory organ precursor cell first divides to generate two secondary precursor cells, IIa and IIb. The IIa cell then divides to produce the hair cell and the socket cell. Shortly after, the IIb cell divides to generate the neuron and the sheath cell. The membrane-associated protein Numb has been shown to be required for the first two asymmetric divisions. We now report that a new hypomorphic numb mutant not only displays a double-socket phenotype, due to a hair cell to socket cell transformation, but also a double-sheath phenotype, due to a neuron to sheath cell transformation. This provides direct evidence that numb functions in the neuron/sheath cell lineage as well. Those results, together with our observation from immunofluorescence analysis that Numb forms a crescent in the dividing IIa and IIb cells suggest that ...

Online Cover This week features a Research Article describing a mathematical model that explains how errors are minimized in the specification of cells that form sensory bristles on flies. The analysis revealed that accurate selection of bristle-forming sensory organ precursor cells in fruit flies requires cell-autonomous Notch-ligand interactions to prevent inappropriate fate specification in neighboring cells. The cover image shows a fly with extra bristles due to an error in the fate specification of the sensory organ precursor cells.

*  Revisiting the Drosophila microchaete lineage: a novel intrinsically asymmetric cell division generates a glial cell |...
The bristle mechanosensory organs of the adult fly are composed of four different cells that originate from a single precursor cell, pI, via two rounds of asymmetric cell division. Here, we have examined the pattern of cell divisions in this lineage by time-lapse confocal microscopy using GFP imaging and by immunostaining analysis. pI divided within the plane of the epithelium and along the anteroposterior axis to give rise to an anterior cell, pIIb, and a posterior cell, pIIa. pIIb divided prior to pIIa to generate a small subepithelial cell and a larger daughter cell, named pIIIb. This unequal division, oriented perpendicularly to the epithelium plane, has not been described previously. pIIa divided after pIIb, within the plane of the epithelium and along the AP axis, to produce a posterior socket cell and an anterior shaft cell. Then pIIIb divided perpendicularly to the epithelium plane to generate a basal neurone and an apical sheath cell. The small subepithelial pIIb daughter cell was ...

*  Thalamus : The Synaptic Organization of the Brain - oi
The thalamus is the largest part of the diencephalon, one of the major subdivisions of the brain, and provides the major route for afferents to the neocortex. Essentially no messages can reach the neocortex without first passing through the thalamus. Messages from many different sources pass through the thalamus on the way to the neocortex, including messages from peripheral sense organs (such as vision, hearing, touch, temperature, pain, taste, olfaction), other regions of the brain (such as the cerebellum and the mamillary bodies), and the neocortex itself. This chapter discusses the general organization of the thalamus, covering its neuronal elements, synaptic connections, basic neuronal circuit, dendritic cable properties, membrane properties, synaptic transmission, and first order and higher order relays. ...

*  Novel cell lineages controlled by Pox neuro of larval poly-innervated external sensory organs in Drosophila - Zurich Open...
Previous studies have shown that Pox neuro (Poxn) plays a crucial role in the development of larval poly-innervated external sensory (p-es) organs in Drosophila. However, how Poxn exerts its function during these processes remains elusive. In this study, we described the detailed analysis of cell lineages for two larval p-es organs, kölbchen and papilla 6. Surprisingly, these two lineages are distinct from any cell lineage reported previously. In homozygous PoxnΔM22 mutant embryos, the kölbchen lineage gives rise to a reduced number of cells, and most interestingly, the cell division pattern is altered. Our results extend the understanding of the development of p-es organs in Drosophila larvae, and clearly demonstrate the role of Poxn in the specification of the cell lineages of larval p-es organs ...

*  "The Effects of SNMP-2 Gene Expression on Mating Discrimination in Male" by Kristen Taylor Ashourian
In order to distinguish between relevant and extraneous stimuli, insects have adapted specialized processes to perceive cues that are beneficial for survival and proliferation. Volatile molecules in the environment can stimulate olfactory receptors (ORs) and gustatory receptors (GRs) in chemosensory organs called sensilla. Specialized proteins located within these sensilla guide and assist chemosensory molecules to the receptors, which then trigger a transduction pathway that elicits behavioral responses. Sensory Neuron Membrane Proteins (SNMPs) are transmembrane proteins found on both gustatory and olfactory sensory organs in insects. There are two forms of these proteins, SNMP-1 and SNMP-2. InDrosophila melanogaster, the function of the SNMPs is currently unknown, but it is thought to contribute to proper recognition of pheromones secreted by maleDrosophila. To determine the role of SNMP-2 inDrosophila, we reduced the gene expression of SNMP-2 by targeting the gene with ...
