Loss of ZBTB20 impairs circadian output and leads to unimodal behavioral rhythms.

eLife | Sep 22, 2016

Many animals display morning and evening bimodal activities in the day/night cycle. However, little is known regarding the potential components involved in the regulation of bimodal behavioral rhythms in mammals. Here, we identified that the zinc finger protein gene Zbtb20 plays a crucial role in the regulation of bimodal activities in mice. Depletion of Zbtb20 in nerve system resulted in the loss of early evening activity, but the increase of morning activity. We found that Zbtb20-deficient mice exhibited a pronounced decrease in the expression of Prokr2 and resembled phenotypes of Prok2 and Prokr2-knockout mice. Injection of adeno-associated virus-double-floxed Prokr2 in suprachiasmatic nucleus could partly restore evening activity in Nestin-Cre; Zbtb20fl/fl (NS-ZB20KO) mice. Furthermore, loss of Zbtb20 in Foxg1 loci, but intact in the suprachiasmatic nucleus, was not responsible for the unimodal activity of NS-ZB20KO mice. Our study provides evidence that ZBTB20-mediated PROKR2 signaling is critical for the evening behavioral rhythms.

DAVID

An integrated biological knowledgebase and comprehensive set of functional annotation tools for investigators to understand biological meaning behind large lists of genes. For any given gene list, DAVID tools are able to: - Identify enriched biological themes, particularly GO terms - Discover enriched functional-related gene groups - Cluster redundant annotation terms - Visualize genes on BioCarta & KEGG pathway maps - Display related many-genes-to-many-terms on 2-D view. - Search for other functionally related genes not in the list - List interacting proteins - Explore gene names in batch - Link gene-disease associations - Highlight protein functional domains and motifs - Redirect to related literatures - Convert gene identifiers from one type to another.

Allen Institute for Brain Science

Independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit medical research organization dedicated to accelerating the understanding of how the human brain works. Utilizing the mouse model system, a multidisciplinary group of neuroscientists, molecular biologists, informaticists, engineers, mathematicians, statisticians, and computational biologists have joined together to investigate expression of 20,000 genes in the adult mouse brain and to map gene expression to a cellular level beyond neuroanatomic boundaries. The data generated from this joint effort is contained in the publicly available Allen Brain Atlas application. Molecular approaches to understanding the functional organization of the brain promise new insights into the relationships between genes, brain, behavior and disease. To facilitate such insights, the Allen Institute produces large-scale projects and makes the resulting data and tools freely available online to scientists worldwide. These open resources, all available at www.brain-map.org, are intended to foster scientific discovery and collaboration. Atlases: Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas: A map of gene expression in the developing mouse brain. Building on the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas, this atlas reveals gene expression patterns from embryonic through postnatal stages to provide information about both spatial and temporal regulation of gene expression. Allen Spinal Cord Atlas: A genome-wide map of gene expression throughout the adult and juvenile mouse spinal cord. The Atlas was made possible through the generous support of a diverse consortium of funders, representing disease organizations, foundations, and corporate and private donors. Allen Mouse Brain Atlas (formerly Allen Brain Atlas): A genome-wide, three-dimensional map of gene expression in the adult mouse brain. Similar in scale to the Human Genome Project, the Atlas reveals the expression patterns of approximately 20,000 genes throughout the entire adult mouse brain down to the cellular level. The Allen Institutes inaugural project, the Atlas was completed in 2006. Studies: Mouse Diversity Study: Characterization of gene expression in the brain across genetic backgrounds and sex. Expanding on the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas, this resource includes data for 49 pharmaceutical drug target genes and a selected set of additional genes across seven mouse strains and in female mice. Transgenic Mouse Study: Comprehensive characterization of the expression patterns of genetically-controlled markers or tool genes in the brains of transgenic mice. Providing standardized, detailed, anatomical profiling of transgene expression throughout the brain, this dataset is intended to reveal the potential of each transgenic mouse line and help researchers choose the appropriate tools for their studies. Human Cortex Study: A collection of gene expression data in the adult human neocortex. Providing data for several categories of genes across different cortical regions and human individuals, including control and schizophrenic cases, the dataset has the potential to enable exploration of variability in cortical gene expression across different ages, between genders across different regions of the cortex and in schizophrenia. Sleep Study: A comprehensive collection of gene expression data in the mouse brain for five different conditions of sleep and wakefulness. Generated in collaboration with SRI International, this unique dataset is intended to help sleep researchers advance understanding of sleep deprivation and the dynamic changes underlying sleep/wake cycles. The sleep study was funded by an award from the U.S. Department of Defense.
