Genetic correlates of neural crest evolution by Daniel Keith Meulemans( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neural crest cells are unique to vertebrates and generate most of the adult structures that distinguish them from their closest invertebrate relatives, the cephalochordates. To elucidate the molecular bases of neural crest evolution, I analyzed the expression, function, and cis-regulation of amphioxus genes with vertebrate homologs having established roles in neural crest development. By comparing these amphioxus genes with their agnathan and gnathostome homologs, I have uncovered genetic changes coincident with, and potentially causal to, the origins of neural crest. I demonstrate that three transcriptional regulators involved with neural crest development, AP-2, Id, and SoxE, were recruited to the neural plate border early in vertebrate evolution--implying that genetic cooption of high-order transcription factors was a major driving force in neural crest evolution. I also show that the function of the Snail protein in establishing the neural plate border was not significantly altered during vertebrate evolution, although vertebrate Snail genes may have evolved novel domains necessary for later functions in neural crest cells. Finally, I began characterizing the cis-regulation of vertebrate and amphioxus Slug/Snail orthologs to determine if divergent aspects of Snail gene expression (i.e., expression in neural crest cells) are reflected in structural differences in Snail cis-regulatory DNA. Using this 3-tiered approach I have begun to define the novel genetic regulatory interactions that drove the evolution of neural crest cells in the vertebrate lineage

We have developed bacterial F-factor based systems for cloning large fragments of human DNA in E. coli. In addition to large size, these systems are capable of maintaining human DNA with a high degree of stability. The cosmid size clones are called Fosmids and the clones containing larger inserts (100--200 kb) are called bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs). The ultimate test of the effectiveness of cloning and mapping technology is the degree to which it can be efficiently applied to solve complex mapping problems. We, therefore, plan to use the large fragment cloning procedure as well as a variety of other approaches to generate a complete map of overlapping clones corresponding to human chromosome 22. We have thus far prepared two human chromosome 22 specific Fosmid libraries and we are in the process of constructing a chromosome 22 specific BAC library composed of fragments larger than 100 kb. We will further optimize the technology so that libraries of fragments larger than 200 kb can be readily prepared
Molecular analysis of ethylene-insensitive mutants in arabidopsis( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject of this study is the biochemical basis of ethylene reception. The Arabidopsis thaliana ETR gene codes for the ethylene receptor or is involved in transduction of the ethylene-generated signal. We have cloned an etr mutation which results in a decrease in the ethylene response of the plant, with a decrease in ethylene binding of about five-fold. Two genes have been found in the cloned region which confer resistance. By sequence analysis, the first protein contains three distinct regions: a transmembrane region, a serine/threonine protein kinase region, and a control region similar to the RAS-binding region of yeast adenylate cyclase. The second protein contains a zinc-finger; since sequence of the first protein shows no mutant-dependent changes, and transition metals have been implicated in ethylene binding, this protein could be the ETR gene product. However, no mutant dependent differences have been found in this protein, either. The mutation could be upstream of the coding region of either gene and involve regulatory elements, so we are continuing to sequence. (MHB)
