The three members of group D compose a single lethal complementation group, but, interestingly, D and D were identified as enhancers whereas D was identified as a suppressor. In wing imaginal discs, Hh is expressed in the posterior compartment and the expression of Ci, an essential downstream effector, is restricted to the anterior compartment. It sought target genes downstream of en and hh by searching for and characterizing genes with patterns of expression specific to either the A or P compartments. Group D are mutations in the gene encoding the kinesin-like protein Pavarotti: It is interesting to note that the Sb protein is thought to be a transmembrane serine protease that could process as yet unidentified signaling proteins Bayer et al. In wing imaginal discs the derepression of Hh target genes caused by the stabilization of Ci is sufficient for the expression of dpp and other low-threshold target genes M ethot and B asler

Genes that were analyzed in more detail are boxed in red. Therefore, the genes identified in this screen may be important, novel mediators of Hh signaling.

Mutant clones in the P x765 express both Sb blue; in situ signal, arrows in B and C and Ci brown immunostaining in C. These groups include mutations in f765 genes encoding the translation factors eRF1 and eIF1A and the kinesin-like protein Pavarotti.

Because the in situ pattern confirmed the expression properties for all three groups of genes, we conclude that the application of stringent filter settings eliminated many true positives.


Wing discs have several different cell types in addition to columnar cells, including peripodial cells, associated tracheal branches, and adepithelial mesodermal cells that are present in different proportions in A gap4 P locations. Cluster analysis and display of genome-wide expression patterns. The disruption gaal4 signaling caused by jaft mutant clones is nearly identical to those reported for clones of cells mutant for ttvbotvand sotvsuggesting that jaft may likewise encode a protein required for HSPG biosynthesis.

FlyBase Insertion Report: Dmel\P{GawB}C

We have therefore concentrated cc765 efforts on mapping and characterizing these groups. Other genes such as vein Schnepp et al. First, each compartment represents a defined and contiguous geographical area, and after the compartments are established in the early embryo, all descendents of the constituent cells retain the compartment identity of their ancestors, even to the adult stage Garcia-Bellido et al.

Proteolytic hal4 yields two secreted forms of sonic hedgehog. To further refine the position of the group D mutations, a mapping technique of measuring the recombination distance between the mutations and the molecularly defined P gak4 insertions was used Z hai et al.

First ,we used the significance analysis of microarrays software package SAM; Tusher et al. In the absence of Hh, the full-length Ci protein Ci is degraded into a smaller, repressor form Ci Smo5A is a dominant negative.

FlyBase Allele Report: Scer\GAL4[C]

Open in a separate window. Role of knot kn in wing patterning in Drosophila. Genetic interactions between the RhoA and Stubble-stubbloid loci suggest a role for a type II transmembrane serine protease in intracellular signaling during Drosophila imaginal disc morphogenesis.


Neuronal cells in the wing disc arise predominantly in the primordia for the notum and anterior wing margin, the regions that will produce most of the enervated sensory organs. Complementation crosses with lethal P insertions in the interval identified one insertion that failed to complement group J.

Of the 20, recombination events scored, only 3 occurred between group D and the EP 3 insertion. hal4

Expression driven by CGal4 reduced the size of both A and P compartments and appeared to primarily affect proximo-distal growth. Proximodistal axis formation in the Drosophila leg: E CG in situ signal in a wild-type disc is predominantly in the Gaal4 compartment.

A Genetic Screen in Drosophila for Identifying Novel Components of the Hedgehog Signaling Pathway

Translation, structural constituent of ribosome, Ribosomal protein Llike. We first monitored the specificity of the knockdown effects. Open All Close All. Additional phenotypes induced by hui RNAi that are not observed for kn include a significant reduction in size of the wing and irregularly spaced bristles along the wing posterior margin Figure 6.

It is possible that mirr is expressed there, but below detectable levels. This activation of Ci is Hh dependent and requires Smo protein. D was also rescued by RC1, when homozygous or in trans with the other group D alleles. Second, in the wing blade primordium, the A and P compartments meet to form a remarkably straight boundary line.
