Refined spatial manipulation of neuronal function by combinatorial restriction of transgene expression. For fruit flies in particular, there are tens of thousands of such lines, with the most useful expressing GAL4 in only a very specific subset of the animal—perhaps, for example, only those neurons that connect two specific compartments of the fly’s brain. A fly geneticist’s Swiss army knife”. It has also been adapted to study receptor chemical-binding functions in vitro in cell culture. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

These are strains of flies with the special UAS region next to a desired gene.

Only the cells that are in both lines make both halves, which self-assemble by leucine zipper into GAL4 and activate the reporter gene. For study in Drosophilathe GAL4 gene is placed under the control of a native gene promoteror driver gene, while the UAS controls expression of a target gene.

The disadvantage is that at least three independent insertion sites are required, so the lines must use different and independent insertion sites, and creating the desired final organisms needs more than a single cross.

In the cells that are producing GAL4, however, the UAS is activated, the gene next to it is turned on, and it starts producing its resulting protein. ggal4

The Gal4 system allows separation of the problems of defining which cells express a gene or protein and what the experimenter wants to do with this knowledge.

It has also been adapted to study receptor chemical-binding functions in vitro in cell culture. Gal4 expression can be made even more specific by means of “intersectional strategies”.

Standfirst Researchers drive transgene expression with two different site-specific promoters by splitting a common expression system in half. In the offspring the selected cells, and only those cells, will contain channelrhodopsin and can be triggered by a bright light.

Refined spatial tal4 of neuronal function by combinatorial restriction of transgene expression. To functionally define subsets of CCAP-expressing neurons, the authors did enhancer-trap experiments, in which enhancers near the integration sites of promoterless transgenes target their expression. Paradigms elva lessons from Saccharomyces cerevsiae “. For example, scientists can first visualize a class of neurons by choosing a fly from dlav GAL4 line that expresses GAL4 in the desired set of neurons, and crossing it with a reporter line that express GFP.

Gal4 is a modular protein consisting broadly of a DNA-binding domain and an activation domain. For example, by fusing a gene encoding a visible marker like GFP Green Fluorescent Protein the expression pattern of the driver genes can be determined. This is a very active field of research, and there are many such intersectional strategies, of which two are discussed below.

GAL4 and the UAS are very useful for studying gene expression in Drosophila as they are not normally present and their expression does not interfere with other processes in the cell.

When combined with intrinsically sparse GAL4 lines, this offers very specific selection, often limited to a single cell type. The authors targeted the subset of neurons expressing the neuropeptide crustacean cardioactive peptide CCAP by crossing the elav hemidrivers with hemidrivers driven by the CCAP promoter. These genetic instructions occur in every cell of the animal, but in most cells nothing happens since that cell is not producing GAL4.

GAL4/UAS system – Wikipedia

Next, to figure out what these cells might do, the experimenter might express channelrhodopsin in each of these cells, by crossing the same GAL4 line with a channelrhodopsin reporter line. Cell-specific promoters target transgene expression to promoter-expressing cells, but many cell populations are defined by the intersection of two genes.

For fruit flies in particular, there are tens of thousands of such lines, with the most useful expressing GAL4 in only a very specific subset of the animal—perhaps, for example, only those neurons that connect two specific compartments of the fly’s brain. GAL4 is then only yal4 in cells where the driver gene is usually active.
