• Ongoing endeavors to detect mobilization of transposable elements

    Strategies for monitoring retrotransposition events with cellular resolution. (A) An overview of the LINE1 retrotransposition assay (adopted from (64)). The L1-cassette contains reporter (shown is GFP) in the opposite direction to normal L1 transcription. As transcription occurs, the intron that disrupts the reporter is removed by a splicing event. SD, splice donor; SA, splice acceptor; IVS, intervening sequence. (B) A schematic of gypsy-TRAP reporter (adopted from (84)). i) No integration: Expression of GAL80 under α-tubulin promoter with intact hot spots (ovo promoter) suppresses GAL4-mediated transcription, thus no GFP signal is detectable. ii) Gypsy integration: If integration of gypsy into the ovo binding site occurs, depicted by triangles, GAL4-driven GFP expression becomes detectable as GAL80 expression is ceased. UAS, Upstream Activating Sequence. (C) A gypsy-CLEVR reporter mimicking the replication cycle of retrovirus (adopted from (92)). During replication of gypsy retrotransposon, 5’ end of the 3’-LTR region (U3’’ in black box) and 3’ end of the 5’ LTR region (U5 in white box) are respectively used for synthesis of 5’ end of 5’-LTR region and 3’ end of 3’-LTR region. Note that both 5X UAS in 5’-LTR region (U5 in white box) and a reporter (GFP-P2A-mCherry) in 3’-LTR region (U3’’ in black box) are in opposite direction to gypsy transcription. Retrotransposition of gypsy-CLEVR leads 5X UAS in vicinity to the reporter (GFP-P2A-mCherry), allowing expression of the reporter by GAL4 activator. PBS, primer binding site; LTR, Long Terminal Repeats.
  • Ubiquitin-regulating effector proteins from Legionella

    Structures of canonical ubiquitin system-related Legionella effectors. Structures of effectors that participate in or regulate canonical ubiquitin systems are presented. (A) Crystal structures of LubX (PDB:4WZ3), LubX U-Box-1 (PDB:4WZ3), LubX U-Box-2 (PDB:4XI1), and human UBE4B U box (PDB:3L1Z) are shown (from left to right, respectively). Superimposed structures of LubX U-box-1/2 and human UBE4M U-box are shown on the right. (B) Crystal structures of LotA OTU1 (PDB:7F9X), LotB (PDB:6KS5), and LotC (PDB:6YK8) are presented. The conserved OTU catalytic core is depicted as green, and the extra helical lobe (EHL) is yellow. (C) Complex crystal structures of RavD:di-ubiquitin (PDB:6NJD) and hOTULIN:di-ubiquitin (PDB:3ZNV).
