|PubMed Abstract||The establishment of the dorsal-ventral axis of the Drosophila wing depends on the activity of the LIM-homeodomain protein Apterous. Apterous activity depends on the formation of a higher order complex with its cofactor Chip to induce the expression of its target genes. Apterous activity levels are modulated during development by dLMO. Expression of dLMO in the Drosophila wing is regulated by two distinct Chip dependent mechanisms. Early in development, Chip bridges two molecules of Apterous to induce expression of dLMO in the dorsal compartment. Later in development, Chip, independently of Apterous, is required for expression of dLMO in the wing pouch. We have conducted a modular P-element based EP (enhancer/promoter) misexpression screen to look for genes involved in Apterous activity. We have found Osa, a member of the Brahma chromatin-remodeling complex, as a positive modulator of Apterous activity in the Drosophila wing. Osa mediates activation of some Apterous target genes and repression of others, including dLMO. Osa has been shown to bind Chip. We propose that Chip recruits Osa to the Apterous target genes, thus mediating activation or repression of their expression.|
