UAS regulatory sequences drive expression of a dominant-negative form of eag.

Deletion of all but the first 195 amino acids, followed by 14 novel residues DPGLVPRPQHRHRP. The resulting deleted protein is expressed from UASt regulatory sequences.

Detailed Description
Statement
Reference

Expression of eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4futsch-C380 in the presence of Scer\GAL80Cha.PK (to suppress expression in all cholinergic neurons) slightly increases the excitability of the MN5 neuron. The firing response is still phasic, but more spikes occur in response to to a current injection of defined amplitude (although the amplitudes of the additional spikes are smaller).

When expression is driven by Scer\GAL4hs.PB with heat shock or Scer\GAL4D42 flies shows ether-induced leg shaking similar to that caused by eag1. When expression is driven by Scer\GAL4MJ286 or Scer\GAL4MJ146 the mean courstship latency is decreased, when driven by Scer\GAL4MJ63 the mean courstship latency is increased. Scer\GAL4MJ286 causes increase in mean duration of courtship. When expression is driven by Scer\GAL47B, Scer\GAL46J3, Scer\GAL453B, Scer\GAL440B, Scer\GAL428A, Scer\GAL4c309, Scer\GAL4c747, Scer\GAL4OK348, Scer\GAL429B, Scer\GAL4MJ63 or Scer\GAL4MJ146 wing extension and vibration duration during courtship are increased.

Co-expression of eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS markedly reduces dpnScer\UAS.cWa-induced tumor growth.

Co-expression of eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS and ShDN.EKI.Scer\UAS.T:Avic\GFP-GL in the RP2 motor neurons (using the Scer\GAL4eve.RRK driver to drive expression of Scer\FLP1Scer\UAS.cUa which then induces clones of cells expressing Scer\GAL4Act.PU) results in a significant increase in the number of dendritic branches and increased dendritic complexity near the neuronal soma.

Co-expression of ShDN.EKI.Scer\UAS and eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4D42 in the presence of Scer\GAL80Cha.PK (to suppress expression in cholinergic neurons) results in a significant increase in total dendritic length and in the number of dendritic branches in MN5 motorneurons.

The reduction in total dendritic length and in the number of dendritic branches which is seen in MN5 motorneurons in animals expressing JraJbz.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4D42 in the presence of Scer\GAL80Cha.PK (to suppress expression in cholinergic neurons) is not altered if the flies are also simultaneously co-expressing both ShDN.EKI.Scer\UAS and eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS.

Co-expression of both ShDN.EKI.Scer\UAS and eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4futsch-C380 in the presence of Scer\GAL80Cha.PK (to suppress expression in all cholinergic neurons) results in the MN5 neuron showing a tonic firing response to a current injection into the soma. Resting membrane potential and input resistance of the MN5 neuron are unaffected.

The dendritic structure of the MN5 neuron is altered compared to wild type in animals expressing ShDN.EKI.Scer\UAS and eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4futsch-C380. Total dendritic length, the number of branch points and the the mean length of individual dendritic branches is increased. Maximum branch order is unaffected. The mean distance of all dendritic segments to the origin of the tree and the total dendritic surface are increased.

Flies expressing both ShDN.EKI.Scer\UAS and eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4futsch-C380 in the presence of Scer\GAL80Cha.PK show increased flight motor performance in a restrained flight assay. The initial and total flight time are significantly increased compared to wild type.

Motor neurons co-expressing eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS and ShDN.EKI.Scer\UAS.T:Avic\GFP-GL under the control of Scer\GAL4futsch-C380 (in the presence of Scer\GAL80Cha.PK) have similar action potential thresholds as control neurons in response to a depolarising current, but have a significantly higher action potential frequency in response to a positive current. The postspike hyperpolarisation is smaller in the mutant larvae, often resulting in spike doublets.

Larval RP2 motor neurons co-expressing eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS and ShDN.EKI.Scer\UAS.T:Avic\GFP-GL under the control of Scer\GAL4unspecified show a significant increase in dendrite volume compared to controls.

Cultured motor neurons co-expressing eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS and ShDN.EKI.Scer\UAS.T:Avic\GFP-GL under the control of Scer\GAL4futsch-C380 (in the presence of Scer\GAL80Cha.PK to suppress expression in cholinergic neurons) show a significant increase in both neurite length and branch number compared to controls.

Reference

Simultaneous co-expression of both eagDN.EKI.Scer\UAS and ShDN.EKI.Scer\UAS.T:Avic\GFP-GL enhances the progressive reduction in electroretinogram (ERG) amplitude which is seen in flies expressing Hsap\LRRK2G2019S.Scer\UAS.T:Zzzz\FLAG under the control of Scer\GAL4ple.PG, such that the triple mutant flies show a significant reduction in ERG amplitude at 10 days of age.
