- 2012Paul G. Rack.The activation of the Hedgehog (Hh) pathway leading to Gli-dependent transcription plays critical roles in tissue patterning, homeostasis, and transformation. Despite the initial discovery of the pathway 30 years ago, a complete mechanistic understanding of Hh signal transduction remains elusive. By conducting a genome-scale overexpression screen using mammalian open reading frames (ORFs), I have identified the Rho GAP domain-containing protein Arhgap36, the homeodomain-interacting protein kinase Hipk4, and MED26, a subunit of the Mediator complex, as regulators of Gli function. This study represents the first report describing a functional role of Arhgap36 in any signaling process, and demonstrates Hipk4 modulates the cellular response to Hh ligand. The activity of MED26 was revealed in the context of the small molecule Hedgehog Pathway Inihibitor-1 (HPI-1), giving further insight to its mechanism of action. In addition, we describe the relevant mechanism of action of the small molecule JK184, a microtubule-disrupting agent that can have both positive and negative effects on pathway activity, depending on the nature of pathway perturbation. These findings provide new insights into how cells regulate Gli-dependent transcription and suggest strategies for the therapeutic intervention of Hh pathway-dependent disease.

Genetic damage in spermatozoa can originate during spermatogenesis, or it can originate during transit in both male and female genital tracts. Damage can also be due to aging, environmental or iatrogenic conditions, as well as to the protocols to cryopreserve and to select spermatozoa in assisted reproduction techniques. This book provides a comprehensive resource for all possible DNA damages in sperm, the relation to fertility and infertility, and possible transgenerational heritable effects.Also available: Print – 2014

- 2010edited by Dhavendra Kumar ; forward by Sir David Weatherall."The population of the Indian subcontinent consists of a fine amalgamation of people from diverse tribal, cultural, religious and social backgrounds. Mortality and morbidity from a vast number of medical and surgical conditions is significant and well above compared to the developed countries. Although a large component of the human health problem is related to infection, malnutrition and other preventable causes, a significant proportion is linked to hereditary factors reflecting in the form of chromosomal, single gene and complex medical diseases. Unusual and unique Mendelian disorders are not uncommon and a number of common medical conditions, such as ischemic heart disease and diabetes mellitus are relatively more prevalent among those living in the developing countries of the Indian subcontinent and as well as among the migrant population groups in the western world. However, true burden of the inherited disorders among the Asian Indians is not known, and probably underestimated. -- This text includes a detailed and concise account of the social and cultural diversity, medical demography, genetic epidemiology, consanguinity and common genetic disorders affecting people from the Indian subcontinent. In addition, specific issues of genetic services in various regions are addressed. This volume also provides a glossary for the benefit of non-genetic professionals and is aimed at a wide audience including physicians, genetic professionals, public health consultants, medical demographers, medica/social anthropologists and health administrators." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

- Genetic probing of the origin of alveolar myofibroblasts and bronchopulmonary dysplasia, a disease of alveolar development2013Krystal Renee St. Julien.Alveolarization, the final stage of lung development, promotes gas-exchange by dividing the sac-like terminal airspaces of the lung into thin-walled pockets. Myofibroblasts are found at sites of septation, and mouse mutants in PDGFR alpha signaling lack myofibroblasts and air sacs fail to septate, suggesting that myofibroblasts play a role in septation. Further, a similar arrest in alveolarization is observed in diseases like bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), a disease of premature infants that twin studies implicate may have important genetic contributions. In this thesis, I explore the developmental origins of myofibroblasts in mouse and the genetic basis of BPD. I first describe a novel protocol developed to extract DNA from dried blood spots taken from newborn infants that can be used in genotyping and genome-wide association studies (GWAS). I then describe an agnostic exploration of the genetic basis of BPD. Finally, I describe the use of genetic lineage tracing in mice to identify airway smooth muscle cells as a source of ductal myofibroblasts during lung development.

- Genetic studies of endocrine function and metabolic regulation by the corpora cardiaca cells in Drosophila melanogaster2011Erika L. Bustamante.In humans, the hormones insulin and glucagon are the principal regulators of blood sugar homeostasis. In the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, the regulation of circulating sugar levels is similarly controlled by insulin-like and glucagon-like factors. Insulin signaling in Drosophila has been studied intensively; by contrast, relatively little is known about the genetic regulation of Drosophila Adipokinetic hormone (Akh), the polypeptide with glucagon-like functions, and the corpora cardiaca (CC) cells that produce Akh. Here I describe the use of an enhancer trap screen that led to the identification of a novel regulator of CC function, the homeodomain transcription factor unplugged (unpg). Knocking down unpg in the CC cells results in decreased Akh transcript levels and reduced circulating glucose and trehalose. I also describe the identification of a number of enhancer traps that are capable of driving GFP expression in the CC cells, suggesting a role for the associated genes in CC cell function. As in human diabetes, insulin deficiency in the fruit fly elevates circulating glucose levels and impairs triglyceride regulation. Reduced insulin signaling in Drosophila also increases expression of the adipokine Akh, a phenotype reminiscent of the excessive glucagon signaling that accompanies human diabetes. Thus, it remains unclear if insulin deficiency or adipokine excess is the primary basis for diabetic phenotypes in flies lacking insulin-producing cells. Here I show that simultaneous targeted ablation of cells producing Drosophila insulin and adipokinetic hormone results in hypoglycemia. Mutation of the gene encoding the Akh receptor (Akhr) reduces circulating glucose levels in adult Drosophila lacking insulin, arguing that excessive Akh signaling is the basis for hyperglycemia in insulin-deficient flies. Simultaneous attenuation of insulin and Akh synthesis also produced hypoglycemic flies. Similar approaches revealed triglyceride imbalance from insulin deficiency requires Akh. Thus adipokines like Akh, not insulin, may be the principal hormonal regulators of glucose and lipid balance in some non-mammalian animal classes and states of insulin deficiency.

- 2013 SpringerKevin Morgan, Minerva M. Carrasquillo, editors.Since 2009, a revolution has been witnessed in Alzheimer's Disease genetics. New genetic links are being discovered at an unprecedented pace and our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration have taken a quantum leap forward. This book provides a thorough description of the genes that have been implicated in the aetiology of late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) based on evidence of genetic association. These "AD susceptibility genes" are described both in their genomic and cellular context, as well as with respect to their known or suspected molecular functions. Although these genes are not sufficient to explain all of the genetic contributions to LOAD, they represent the best replicated set of genes to date. Undoubtedly the list will grow as more advanced genomic approaches towards the identification of novel LOAD genes progresses.

- 2011Lewis Zuocheng Hong.Hundreds of coat color loci have been cloned and studied in the laboratory mouse, and most aspects of the mouse pigmentary system are conserved in other mammals. However, comparative zoologic studies suggest that some components of mammalian pigmentation are not represented as coat color mutations in laboratory mice. This dissertation aims to advance our molecular understanding of mammalian pigmentation, and strives to identify novel components of the genetic toolkit involved in generating the diverse array of coat color patterns found in nature. In the Syrian hamster, X-linked inheritance of the Sex-linked yellow (Sly) mutation results in irregular patches of black and yellow hair in heterozygous females. Female-specific variegation of black and yellow coat color is also present in the domestic cat, but curiously absent from other vertebrate species. Using a combination of comparative genomics and linkage mapping, I made key contributions towards defining a candidate interval for the Sly mutation and discovering that the hamster and cat mutations lie in non-homologous regions of the X chromosome. Periodic color patterns on animal skin, such as cheetah spots and zebra stripes, are evident across the mammalian phylogeny, but their molecular basis remains a mystery. Taking advantage of improvements in ultra high-throughput sequencing technologies, I developed a methodology called EDGE, or EcoP15I-tagged Digital Gene Expression, that is well suited for gene expression profiling in non-model organisms. Applying EDGE to black spot and yellow background regions of cheetah skin, I discovered that localized differences in Endothelin-3 expression is likely to be responsible for maintaining black spotting through a pigment-type switching mechanism in hair follicle melanocytes. The use of EDGE and other genomic approaches to generate comparative molecular profiles of mammalian skin patterns is likely to open new avenues of research into mammalian pigment patterning and initiate a molecular renaissance for a set of questions that has mostly resided in the area of theoretical biology for the past few decades.

They have been employed in almost all fields of biological studies, including Genetics. The whole edifice of science of Genetics centers around three processes: the generation, expression, and transmission of biological variation, and bacteria offer immediate advantages in studying all the three aspects of heredity. Being haploid and structurally simple, it becomes easy to isolate mutations of various kinds and relate them to a function. The availability of such mutants and their detailed genetic and biochemical analyses lead to a gamut of information on gene expression and its regulation. While studying the transmission of biological variation, it is clear that unlike their eukaryotic counterpart, a more genetic approach needs to be employed. Transmission of genetic information in most eukaryotic organisms rests on sexual reproduction that allows the generation of genetically variable offspring through the process of gene recombination. Even though bacteria show an apparent preference for asexual reproduction, they too have evolved mechanisms to trade their genetic material. In fact, bacteria not only could acquire many genes from close relatives, but also from entirely distant members through the process of horizontal gene transfer. Their success story of long evolutionary existence will stand testimony to these mechanisms. While teaching a course on Microbial Genetics to the post-graduate students at Delhi University, it was realized that a book devoted to bacterial genetics may be very handy to the students, researchers, and teachers alike. A strong foundation in genetics also helps in comprehending more modern concepts of molecular biology and recombinant DNA technology, always a favorite with the students and researchers. Planning the format of the book, emphasis has been laid on the generation and transmission of biological variability. The omission of expression part is indeed intentional because lots of information is available on this aspect in any modern biology book. The contents are spread over seven chapters and the text is supported with figures/tables wherever possible. The endeavor has been to induce the readers to appreciate the strength of bacterial genetics and realize the contribution of these tiny organisms to the growth of biological sciences as a whole and genetics in particular.
- 2013edited by Rajesh V. Thakker [and others].This book identifies and analyzes the genetic basis of bone disorders in humans and demonstrates the utility of mouse models in furthering the knowledge of mechanisms and evaluations of treatments. The book is aimed at all students of bone biology and genetics, and with this in mind, it includes general introductory chapters on genetics and bone biology and more specific disease-orientated chapters, which comprehensively summarize the clinical, genetic, molecular genetic, animal model, functional and molecular pathology, diagnostic, counselling and treatment aspects of each disorder. Saves academic, medical, and pharma researchers time in quickly accessing the very latest details on a broad range of genetic bone issues, as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articles. Provides a common language for bone biologists and geneticists to discuss the development of bone cells and genetics and their interactions in the development of disease. Researchers in all areas bone biology and genetics will gain insight into how clinical observations and practices can feed back into the research cycle and will, therefore, be able to develop more targeted genomic and proteomic assays. For those clinical researchers who are also MDs, correct diagnosis (and therefore correct treatment) of bone diseases depends on a strong understanding of the molecular basis for the disease.

- 2014 SpringerStruan F.A. Grant, editor.In the past four years, many genetic loci have been implicated for BMI from the outcomes of genome-wide association studies (GWAS), primarily in adults. Insulin-induced gene 2 (INSIG2) was the first locus to be reported by this method to have a role in obesity, but replication attempts have yielded inconsistent outcomes. The identification of the second locus, the fat mass- and obesity-associated gene (FTO), has been more robustly observed by others. Studies from both FTO knock out and FTO over expression mouse model support the fact that FTO is directly involved in the regulation of energy intake and metabolism in mice, where the lack of FTO expression leads to leanness while enhanced expression of FTO leads to obesity. Along with numerous other studies, a number of genetic variants have been established robustly in the context of obesity, giving us fresh insights into the pathogenesis of the disease. This book provides a comprehensive overview of efforts aimed at uncovering genetic variants associated with obesity, which have been particularly successful in the past 5 years with the advent of genome-wide association studies (GWAS). The Genetics of Obesity covers this state of the art technology and its application to obesity in great detail. Topics include genetics of childhood obesity, genetics of syndromic obesity, copy number variants and extreme obesity, co-morbidities of obesity genetics, and functional follow-up of genetic variants.

- 2011Penka Vassileva Markova-Raina.Recent advances in technology have unleashed a breathtaking amount of genome sequence data. My doctoral research builds on the resulting opportunities of whole genome sequence data and analysis in a quest for gaining new insights into molecular evolution, and in particular molecular evolution and adaptation of proteins. Chapter One of my dissertation is focused on methodology, specifically the impact that the choice of multiple sequence alignment procedure has on the inference of positive selection. I find that selection inference is highly dependent on the choice of alignment procedure. Furthermore, in the case of the 12 Drosophila genomes proteins and commonly used alignment programs, most of the inferences are false positives, caused by misaligned codons. These results put into question the reliability of some of the previously reported conclusions on adaptation in these proteins, as well as in similar studies of other species. The second chapter relates these alignment errors to specific regions in the proteins, the so-called intrinsically disordered protein regions. Disordered protein regions do not have a stable fold in native physiological conditions, and therefore do not fit the standard assumptions made in codon-based evolutionary analyses about structure and folding constraints. My findings indicate that in the case of the false-positively inferred positively selected sites, as well as in general throughout the alignments, most alignment errors and ambiguities originate in disordered regions. Indels in the alignments also appear predominantly in those regions. Examination of widely used alignment benchmarks indicates that disordered regions have mostly been excluded from the benchmarks. I discuss implications of these findings for both evolutionary research and development of alignment software. The last chapter of my dissertation characterizes the evolution of disordered regions in Drosophila. I survey protein substitution and polymorphism patterns in D. melanogaster and D. simulans, and find that relative to structured regions, disordered ones have multiple-fold higher rates of replacement polymorphisms and substitutions, as well as fewer rare polymorphisms. Structured regions appear to be significantly more impacted by both positive and purifying selection, contrary to indications from previous reports where within-species data was not incorporated in the analysis.

- 2013 Springer Protocolsedited by Cedric Gondro, Julius van der Werf, Ben Hayes."With the detailed genomic information that is now becoming available, we have a plethora of data that allows researchers to address questions in a variety of areas. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have become a vital approach to identify candidate regions associated with complex diseases in human medicine, production traits in agriculture, and variation in wild populations. Genomic prediction goes a step further, attempting to predict phenotypic variation in these traits from genomic information. Genome-Wide Association Studies and Genomic Prediction pulls together expert contributions to address this important area of study. The volume begins with a section covering the phenotypes of interest as well as design issues for GWAS, then moves on to discuss efficient computational methods to store and handle large datasets, quality control measures, phasing, haplotype inference, and imputation. Later chapters deal with statistical approaches to data analysis where the experimental objective is either to confirm the biology by identifying genomic regions associated to a trait or to use the data to make genomic predictions about a future phenotypic outcome (e.g. predict onset of disease). As part of the Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters provide helpful, real-world implementation advice."--Back cover
- Genome-wide functional genomic analysis for physiological investigation and improvement of cell-free protein synthesis2011Isoken Omosefe Airen.We set out to develop and apply a high-throughput cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS) platform that provides functional genomics information for a wide variety of open reading frames (ORFs). We then used this information to improve CFPS yields by 4- to 5-fold, depending on the protein product. With the increasing number of completed genome sequences and ongoing sequencing projects, the post-genomic era has ushered in the promise of complete understanding of biological systems. For such a task, the most important set of information is inarguably the knowledge of the function of each gene product. To lead this endeavor of discerning the properties and functions of the entirety of an organism's genes and gene products, the field of functional genomics has emerged. Functional genomics focuses on dynamic cellular aspects, such as gene transcription, translation, and protein-protein interactions, in attempts to understand the relationship between an organism's genome and its phenotype. Thus, the ultimate goal of such studies is to provide a more complete picture of how biological function arises from the hereditary information of a living system. However, despite this clear interest in analyzing the expression and function of gene products, the development of techniques to address the high-throughput needs of functional genomics has been challenging, given the large diversity of protein functions and physiochemical properties, such as molecular weight and hydrophobicity, as well as the varying expression levels of proteins within a cell. In light of these challenges, we developed a sequential CFPS platform, which is capable of characterizing a variety of diverse proteins in the context of the dynamic metabolic networks that exist in vivo. The first round of expression is directed by PCR-generated expression templates (ETs) and creates an array of cell extracts that are individually enriched with a single target gene product. This round of CFPS is terminated by the selective degradation of the linear DNA templates, and a subsequent round of protein expression is initiated by the addition of a plasmid ET for a reporter protein. The array is then screened to identify gene products that enhanced or inhibited the expression and folding of the reporter. With such a method, we expect that the observations will expand our knowledge of both cell-free and in vivo metabolism, as well as identify key factors and reactions that could potentially lead to improved in vitro transcription, translation and protein folding. CFPS systems offer attractive alternatives to conventional fermentation processes used for protein production. Although improvements in CFPS energetics and reaction conditions have greatly enhanced in vitro protein synthesis, we believe that there are still other issues limiting the productivity of the technology. For this reason, identifying targets that could further improve CFPS is desirable. To validate the developed sequential CFPS protocol, we conducted a genome-wide survey of the well-studied bacterium Escherichia coli (E. coli) to identify soluble gene products that influence the in vitro metabolism. With this method, we identified 139 gene products (79 positive and 60 negative effectors) that influenced the cell-free transcription, translation, and protein folding of our three reporter proteins, as well as the energy metabolism and RNA and protein stability in the CFPS system. Encouragingly, most of the observed effects were consistent with the accepted in vivo metabolic functions of the gene products. However, many were not and required subsequent assays and in-depth literature searches to suggest hypotheses for the in vitro activities of the identified gene products. In many cases, the observations illuminated principles and influences that are unknown, lesser known, or secondary functions that were not expected to influence the CFPS performance. The information from the genome-wide survey was then used to guide modifications of the CFPS system to improve the productivity and duration of in vitro protein synthesis, as well as the efficiency of protein folding. First, fifteen positive effectors were produced and supplemented into the expression reactions in various combinations of the effectors in order to identify cooperative interactions that further enhance system performance. Next, we constructed and evaluated four mutant E. coli strains with chromosomal deletions in non-essential genes that encode negative effectors identified by the genomic survey. We also re-optimized the small molecule metabolite environment in the CFPS reactions. Thus, in the improved in vitro expression system, energy generation, translation initiation and elongation, and protein folding were enhanced; the reaction pH was stabilized; the supplies of specific molecular substrates that are essential for protein synthesis were replenished; and mRNA transcripts were stabilized. With this new system, the total, soluble, and active yields of the several diverse proteins were enhanced by 300 to 400%. The functional genomic analysis of E. coli has greatly broadened our understanding of the biology of the organism. And with the use of species-independent translational leaders that can facilitate cell-free expression (Mureev et al., 2009), our sequential CFPS platform can be used for similar genome-wide surveys of most organisms. In this way, the vast wealth of information available in the sequenced genomes will be utilized, and our knowledge of these biological systems will be significantly improved. Furthermore, the forward, or targeted, metabolic engineering strategy that was used to enhance our CFPS system can be applied to the development and/or improvement of most organism-based in vitro protein expression platforms. These targeted metabolic changes will lead to more rapid and more significant enhancements than traditional improvement strategies, as well as bring us closer to a complete understanding of the biological systems.

- 2012Yue Wan.RNA plays an important role in regulating cellular gene expression. Its ability to fold into secondary and tertiary structures underlies the RNA's ability to function and be processed in every step of its life cycle, including transcription, splicing, cellular localization, translation and turnover of the RNA. However, structural information for most RNAs in the cells, such as mRNAs, is missing due to the low throughput nature of RNA structure probing and the traditional difficulty of probing long RNAs, making it difficult to assess the full impact of RNA structure in biology. To fulfill the need to understand the roles of RNA structure on a global scale, we developed for the first time a novel strategy termed Parallel Analysis of RNA Structure (PARS), which couples structure-specific probing to high throughput sequencing to simultaneously generate secondary structures for thousands of RNA species at single nucleotide resolution. Applying PARS to the yeast transcriptome identified distinct structural organization of mRNAs, including a three nucleotide periodicity in the coding region and increased accessibility near the start codon for translation. Furthermore, we demonstrated that PARS can be used to study dynamics by probing the yeast transcriptome across a temperature gradient to identify functional structural regions that have differential propensity to melt. PARS can be readily applied to different organisms and conditions, to identify structural determinants that regulate gene expression changes across organisms in different cellular states. This expansion of RNA structural data will likely enhance our understanding of how RNA structure translates into RNA function in cellular systems, as well as open doors to potentially targeting these structural elements to regulate cellular behavior in diseases.
- Genome-wide siRNA screen identifies a novel, 7 transmembrane protein that mediates amino acid signaling to mTORC12013Lin Gan.Cells have an evolutionarily conserved mechanism to sense and integrate nutrient information for optimal growth and survival. The signaling network that is central to receiving nutritional inputs and translating them to effects on anabolic and catabolic activities of the cell consists of a large serine/threonine kinase known as mTOR. mTOR signaling is crucial for many important cellular processes such metabolism, growth, proliferation and differentiation. It is able to integrate diverse inputs including growth factors, cytokines, energy, oxygen and stress in addition to nutrients and regulate diverse outputs including translation, ribosome biogenesis, lipid biogenesis and autophagy. It is also an important therapeutic target and its inhibitor Rapamycin is currently being used or tested for a wide range of diseases including cancers and neurodegenerative diseases. Amino acids are arguably the most important regulators of mTOR and a long standing mystery in the field is the identity of the amino acid sensor and the mechanism of sensing. Using RNAi, we systematically screened through the human genome for candidate genes regulating amino acid signaling. We confirm that the mitochondria and the lysosomes are the two key sensing organelles, with amino acid metabolism and the RagGTPases being important for signal transduction. We identify a novel lysosomal 7 transmembrane protein that mediates signals upstream the RagGTPases and binds mTORC1-RagA in an amino-acid dependent manner. We also demonstrate that increasing levels of this protein enables cells to recruit mTOR to lysosomes and activate its kinase activity in the absence of amino acids. We show that GPR137B, mTORC1 and RagA form an amino acid sensitive, high-affinity binding complex at the lysosome. We propose a model of sensing where the 7-transmembrane protein, which we renamed to MORTOR, forms a tight complex with mTORC1-RagA in the presence of amino acids, resulting in the persistent lysosomal recruitment and activation of mTORC1. In addition to identifying novel regulators, this systematic study has also generated testable hypotheses about systems level properties of mTORC1 signaling, thus providing the foundation to understand mTOR signaling as a network. The discovery of the novel 7 transmembrane protein and its GPCR-like characteristics also has the potential to lead to new classes of therapeutics and targets for this important pathway.
- Genome-wide siRNA screen reveals diverse cellular processes and pathways that mediate genomic stability2010Renee Darlene Paulsen.Genome instability has long been known to be a hallmark of cancerous cells, but the cellular causes and consequences of such instability are still not fully understood. Mutations, translocations, DNA rearrangements, as well as chromosomal loss can all result in the loss of genomic integrity. To prevent the disruption of cellular homeostasis due to DNA damage accumulation, cells contain pathways to sense and respond to DNA damage including cell cycle checkpoints and numerous DNA repair processes, collectively known as the DNA damage response (DDR). Mutations in many of the genes involved in the DDR are linked to several diseases, including premature aging, neurodegeneration and cancer. These signaling pathways are especially critical during DNA replication when the DNA is unwound and vulnerable to processing. Here, the cell relies on the S-phase checkpoint to sense DNA damage at the sites of replication forks and to facilitate a number of downstream pathways to maintain genomic stability. These processes include blocking further origin firing, facilitating DNA repair, preventing cell cycle progression, and stabilizing stalled replication forks. Here, two genome-wide siRNA screens were employed to identify additional genes involved in genome stabilization by monitoring phosphorylation of the histone variant H2AX, an early mark of DNA damage. The first screen looked at H2AX phosphorylation that occurred simply by individual protein depletion, and the second screen used a low level of a replication inhibitor, aphidicolin, to specifically identify genes that were needed to prevent DNA damage during S-phase, potentially due to the loss of replication fork stabilization mechanisms. While the results from the second screen are still undergoing further characterization, we did discover hundreds of genes whose down-regulation led to elevated levels of H2AX phosphorylation in the absence of any external stress. From this gene set, we identified many gene networks that were significantly enriched amongst our screening hits as well as several intriguing individual genes that were chosen for follow up study. These included genes involved in mRNA processing, the pathology of Charcot-Marie-Tooth syndrome, and the histone methyl transferase protein, Set8.

- Genomic analysis of neuron-restrictive silencer factor activity in neuronal and non-neuronal human cell lines2010Evonne Chen Leeper.The neuron-restrictive silencer factor/RE-1 silencing transcription factor (NRSF/REST) is thought to be a negative regulator of neuronal genes in non-neuronal cells. However, evidence of its continued expression and activity in neurons suggests that NRSF may play other roles. A complete knowledge of NRSF target genes in neuronal and non-neuronal cells is the first step to understanding its functions. Using chromatin immunoprecipitation and quantitative PCR, I experimentally tested the occupancy of NRSF in living non-neuronal cells on 113 candidate binding sites predicted on the basis of conservation across the human, mouse, and dog genomes. These tests helped to further refine the prediction algorithm and identified a number of NRSF-bound regulatory microRNAs that may work in a feedforward loop to downregulate NRSF and its co-repressor, CoREST. I next focused on understanding NRSF recruitment in neuron-derived versus non-neuronal cell lines, using chromatin immunoprecipitation paired with ultrahigh-throughput sequencing (ChIP-seq) to get a direct, genome-wide picture of NRSF binding in human neuron-derived and non-neuronal cell lines. I found a large overlap in the NRSF binding pattern between the two cell types, particularly in binding sites found to be strongly or commonly bound. There is a subset of strong sites bound in all cell types, and weaker sites that are more likely to be cell-type specific. These common sites contain the canonical NRSE while the cell line unique sites do not. Finally, I used another ultrahigh-throughput sequencing based method to catalog and quantify all mRNA transcripts in each of the cell lines (RNA-seq) to add target gene expression to the analysis of NRSF function. Common target genes were more likely to be highly expressed in the neuron-derived cell line than in non-neuronal cell lines despite NRSF binding in both. I also found that the neuron-specific binding sites were primarily located in exons and promoters, while common or non-neuronal specific binding sites were primarily located in introns and intergenic regions. Differences in binding strength and target gene expression levels suggest that NRSF has different binding mechanisms and functions in neuron-derived and non-neuronal human cell lines.

- Genomic and regulatory network diversity revealed by REST/NRSF, maltase glucoamylase and the protocadherin gene cluster2010Sarah Theresa Kerfoot Garcia.This thesis details the experimentation on three gene/gene families: the RE1-silencing transcription factor also known as neuron-restrictive silencer factor (REST/NRSF), a repressor of neuronal genes; maltase-glucoamylase (MGAM), the intestinal enzyme responsible for the breakdown of starch; and the neuronally expressed protocadherin gene family of unknown function (PCDH). The research I have completed is tied together by the fundamental question: how is diversity achieved? On the evolutionary scale, I have investigated the functional consequences of mutation and how these functional changes may have impacted the evolution of diversity. On the cellular scale, I have sought to understand how diversity is generated by attempting to define the binding networks of proteins important in the determination of cell fate in the case of REST/NRSF and in the determination of specific neuronal identities as the predicted function of the protocadherins. REST/NRSF is canonically known as a master repressor whose function is to establish and maintain the repression of neuronal genes in nonneuronal cells. While a handful of REST/NRSF target genes of neuronal function have been extensively studied, there is little consensus on the entire repertoire of REST/NRSF targets. I participated in the development of a set of software tools for transcription factors with known binding sites which allows the identification and characterization of binding sites and their potential target genes. We identified 660 putative target genes for REST/NRSF and demonstrated that this set is enriched for genes of known neuronal function and that the expression of REST/NRSF is negatively correlated with predicted target gene expression. We validated a large number of potential binding sites and experimentally determined a threshold value which enriches the set of predicted binding sites for true positive sites. Maltase glucoamylase (MGAM) is responsible for starch breakdown and is thought to be especially important in brain development when glucose demand is high. Other components of starch metabolism are known to have common variations which affect function and these high functioning variants are more common in populations with high starch diets. Research in our lab revealed a large, common deletion in the MGAM gene with a high allele frequency in Europeans, a population with comparatively increased starch intake. I mapped the endpoints of this large, common deletion and determined the likely mechanism by which the deletion occurred to be recombination between two highly similar repeats within the MGAM gene. I then demonstrated that the deletion has no gross impact on mRNA structure or expression in heterozygous form and is therefore likely to be a neutral mutation. The protocadherins are a diverse set of neuronally-expressed cell-adhesion-like molecules hypothesized to provide the molecular code necessary for the identification of individual neurons for their incorporation into appropriate neural circuits. I demonstrate that gene conversion events occur and have likely functional effects on protocadherin paralogs, a hypothesis that had only previously been supported by evolutionary evidence. Previous research suggested that endogenous cleavage products of some protocadherins localized to the nucleus and affected gene expression. I verified nuclear localization of the protocadherin paralogs previously published and demonstrated that this nuclear localization is a common feature of all protocadherin paralogs assayed. I found no evidence that the protocadherin fragment was capable of binding to DNA directly or to affect protocadherin expression, but was unable to determine whether this was indicative of a lack of these functions in vivo or a failure of my experimental system to detect them. I conclude that nuclear localization of protocadherin internal fragments is a process common to disparate members of the protocadherin cluster but the functional consequences of this nuclear localization remain unknown.

Identifying the genetic changes underlying adaptive evolution of organisms to their environment is of fundamental importance in understanding the history of life, as well as predicting how organisms will evolve to novel environments in the future. Experimental evolution of microbes in the laboratory provides a precisely controlled environment for investigations into the genetic basis of adaptation, while also allowing for large population sizes and experimental replication, benefits that are often not available in natural populations. Recent technologies have enabled the identification of the genetic changes responsible for adaptive evolution genome-wide, giving us a genomic view of adaptation during evolution experiments. Here, I have added to our understanding of the genomic basis of adaptation by investigating how Saccharomyces cerevisiae adapts to limiting glucose environments during experimental evolution. Throughout this work, I utilize next- generation, whole-genome sequencing to identify the mutations responsible for adaptation. In Chapter 1, I investigate how genetic interactions define the fitness landscape, and find that very strong negative epistasis between two beneficial mutations creates a fitness valley, so each mutation effectively determines the evolutionary trajectory of adaptation. In Chapter 2, I take a step back and look more broadly at adaptation while asking the question: is there a general functional theme for the genomic basis of adaptation to limiting glucose? To facilitate answering this question in an unbiased manner, I develop a whole-population, whole-genome sequencing technique, and find that the theme of adaptation in the constant and predictable environment of the glucose-limited chemostat is for the yeast to lose function of signaling networks responsible for sensing environmental stimulus, effectively decoupling environmental sensing from response. In Chapter 3, in a collaborative project, we seek to understand the extent that genotypic convergence underlies phenotypic convergence by evolving genetically distinct yeast under different conditions. We find a single gene is recurrently mutated across most genetic backgrounds, suggesting that genotypic convergence plays a large role in adaptive evolution.

- 2010Heather Elizabeth Wheeler.Although family studies have shown that genes play a role in longevity and tissue aging, it has proven difficult to identify the specific genetic variants involved. Kidneys age at different rates, such that some people show little or no effects of aging whereas others show rapid functional decline. We developed a sequential transcriptional profiling and expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) mapping approach known as genomic convergence to find genes associated with aging in the kidney. We first performed whole-genome transcriptional profiling to find 630 genes that change expression with age in the kidney. Next, we used two methods to determine which of these age-regulated genes are eQTLs, which means they contain SNPs whose alleles associate with expression level. We found that 101 of the age-regulated genes are eQTLs. We also found that the allele-specific eQTL detection method, which compares the mRNA levels of the two alleles within heterozygous individuals, was more sensitive than the total expression method in detecting allelic expression differences. We tested the eQTLs for association with kidney aging, measured by glomerular filtration rate (GFR) using combined data from the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging (BLSA) and the InCHIANTI study. We found a SNP association (rs1711437 in MMP20) with kidney aging (uncorrected p = 3.6E-05, empirical p = 0.01) that explains 1-2% of the variance in GFR among individuals. The results of this sequential analysis may provide the first evidence for a gene association with kidney aging in humans. Our approach of combining both expression and genotype data can be applied to any phenotype of interest to increase the power to find genetic associations.

- 2012Eric Lyman Van Nostrand.Although the development of high-throughput techniques to quantify gene expression have enabled us to characterize genes that change in various conditions, identifying the regulators that drive these changes remains a challenging problem. Recent efforts to identify direct transcription factor targets provide a foothold to addressing the identification of regulators, by allowing inference of critical factors based on the expression patterns of their targets. However, success in this approach requires an improved ability to infer factor-responsive targets (those regulated by the transcription factor) from direct targets (those bound by the factor). By identifying factor-specific binding sites (i.e., those regions bound by the factor of interest but not by many additional random transcription factors), we found that the link between direct and functional targets was significantly improved -- e.g., although only 26% of significant HLH-1 binding sites correlated with altered expression when HLH-1 was over-expressed, over 40% of factor-specific significant binding sites did so. In the course of this work, we identified HOT (Highly Occupied Target) regions that were bound by more than 65% of factors assayed. Surprisingly, our analysis indicated that these regions were not artifacts of the target identification methodology. Rather, they instead indicate a potentially novel regulatory mechanism for expression of housekeeping genes, as genes associated with HOT regions were highly and ubiquitously expressed and essential for development. Next, we applied this approach to the study of aging. Although genome-wide microarray experiments in C. elegans have identified over a thousand genes with age-dependent expression, only a handful of transcriptional regulators are known to link altered lifespan with modulation of genes that change during wild-type aging. We describe an approach to infer potential regulators of aging and longevity by interrogating direct transcription factor targets generated by the modENCODE project. We identify nine factors with targets significantly enriched for altered expression with age, including three previously shown to modulate lifespan. We further show that for two additional factors, NHR-28 and NHR-76, strains in which these factors are over-expressed show increased lifespan, suggesting that these factors may represent additional links between age-dependent gene expression changes with longevity. This approach identified HOX co-factor unc-62 (Homothorax) as a developmental regulator that binds age-regulated transcripts and modulates lifespan. In the intestine (in which UNC-62 knockdown increases lifespan) we identify multiple activities: UNC-62 binds to and activates both intestine-expressed yolk protein genes that decline with age as well as neuronal-enriched genes that increase in intestinal expression with age. An alternatively spliced, tissue-specific isoform of unc-62 is expressed exclusively in the intestine and declines with age, providing a potential mechanism for distinct activities of UNC-62 between tissues and stages. Thus, UNC-62 provides a proof of principle for uncovering unexplored transcription factors effecting aging and longevity through integrated analysis of developmental regulatory targets.

The best-studied example of such architecture is the circadian clock, which directs all diurnal behaviour and physiology, and whose central mechanism is present in most body cells. We present below a method to look at its properties via transcriptional reporters virally delivered to primary cells. By studying primary fibroblasts cultivated from skin biopsies in different human subjects, we have been able to analyse the molecular underpinnings of variance in human daily behaviour. Similar methodologies could be applied to other signalling pathways.

- 2013 SpringerGiuseppe Guglielmi, Wilfred C.G. Peh, Ali Guermazi, editors.In the elderly, the coexistence of various diseases, the presence of involutional and degenerative changes, and the occurrence of both physical and cognitive problems represent ""the norm."" It is therefore important to know how to distinguish the healthy elderly from those in need of treatment as a sound basis for avoiding overdiagnosis and overtreatment. This aspect is a central theme in Geriatric Imaging, which covers a wide range of applications of different imaging techniques and clearly explains both the potential and the limitations of diagnostic imaging in geriatric patients.

- 2014 Springeredited by Jay A. Yelon, Fred A. Luchette.Geriatric Trauma and Critical Care provides a multidisciplinary overview of the assessment and management of the elderly patient presenting with surgical pathology. By utilizing current literature and evidence-based resources, the textbook elucidates the unique nature of caring for the elderly population. The structure of the volume provides the reader with an overview of the physiologic and psychological changes, as well as the impact on the healthcare system, associated with the aging process. Emphasis is placed on the impact of aging, pre-existing medical problems, effects of polypharmacy, advanced directives and end-of-life wishes on acute surgical problems, including trauma and surgical critical care. Special attention is given to the ethical implications of management of the aged. The multidisciplinary contributors provide a unique point of view not common to surgical texts. The textbook is the definitive resource for practicing surgeons, emergency medicine physicians, intensivists, anesthesiologists, hospitalists, geriatricians, as well as surgical residents, nurses and therapists, all who care for elderly patients with surgical emergencies.
- 2014 SpringerTomas Lindor Griebling, editor.Geriatric urology represents one of the largest overall sectors of care provided within the specialty of urology. As the incidence and prevalence of many clinical urologic conditions increase significantly in older adults, the practice of urology involves a need for advanced knowledge of the basic principles of geriatrics. Geriatric Urology outlines important topics in the care of elderly urology patients. The first section covers the biology of aging, changes in the genitourinary system, and common diseases including urologic conditions that may serve as warning signs of other disorders. Section two covers geriatric syndromes and implications for urologic care including frailty, polypharmacy, dementia, , and wound healing. Urologic conditions in older adults are explored in detail including urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary tract infection, nocturia, and benign prostate diseases. Other topics covered include obtaining informed consent, development of advance directives, palliative medicine and care of the dying patient. Geriatric Urology is of great value to urologists, geriatricians, internists, residents and family practitioners.
