    Ascertaining when and where genes are expressed is of crucial importance to understanding or predicting the physiological role of genes and proteins and how they interact to form the complex networks that underlie organ development and function. It is, therefore, crucial to determine on a genome-wide level, the spatio-temporal gene expression profiles at cellular resolution. This information is provided by colorimetric RNA in situ hybridization that can elucidate expression of genes in their native context and does so at cellular resolution. We generated what is to our knowledge the first genome-wide transcriptome atlas by RNA in situ hybridization of an entire mammalian organism, the developing mouse at embryonic day 14.5. This digital transcriptome atlas, the Eurexpress atlas (http://www.eurexpress.org), consists of a searchable database of annotated images that can be interactively viewed. We generated anatomy-based expression profiles for over 18,000 coding genes and over 400 microRNAs. We identified 1,002 tissue-specific genes that are a source of novel tissue-specific markers for 37 different anatomical structures. The quality and the resolution of the data revealed novel molecular domains for several developing structures, such as the telencephalon, a novel organization for the hypothalamus, and insight on the Wnt network involved in renal epithelial differentiation during kidney development. The digital transcriptome atlas is a powerful resource to determine co-expression of genes, to identify cell populations and lineages, and to identify functional associations between genes relevant to development and disease.

    Three distinct cell types are present within the 64-cell stage mouse blastocyst. We have investigated cellular development up to this stage using single-cell expression analysis of more than 500 cells. The 48 genes analyzed were selected in part based on a whole-embryo analysis of more than 800 transcription factors. We show that in the morula, blastomeres coexpress transcription factors specific to different lineages, but by the 64-cell stage three cell types can be clearly distinguished according to their quantitative expression profiles. We identify Id2 and Sox2 as the earliest markers of outer and inner cells, respectively. This is followed by an inverse correlation in expression for the receptor-ligand pair Fgfr2/Fgf4 in the early inner cell mass. Position and signaling events appear to precede the maturation of the transcriptional program. These results illustrate the power of single-cell expression analysis to provide insight into developmental mechanisms. The technique should be widely applicable to other biological systems.

    In the developing brain, transcription factors (TFs) direct the formation of a diverse array of neurons and glia. We identifed 1445 putative TFs in the mouse genome. We used in situ hybridization to map the expression of over 1000 of these TFs and TF-coregulator genes in the brains of developing mice. We found that 349 of these genes showed restricted expression patterns that were adequate to describe the anatomical organization of the brain. We provide a comprehensive inventory of murine TFs and their expression patterns in a searchable brain atlas database.

    Secreted and transmembrane proteins provide critical functions in the signaling networks essential for neurogenesis. We used a genetic signal sequence gene trap approach to isolate 189 genes expressed during development in e16.5 whole head, e16.5 hippocampus and e14.5 cerebellum. Gene ontology programs were used to classify the genes into respective biological processes. Four major classes of biological processes known to be important during development were identified: cell communication, cell physiology processes, metabolism and morphogenesis. We used in situ hybridization to determine the temporal and spatial patterns of gene expression in the developing brain using this set of probes. The results demonstrate that gene expression patterns can highlight potential gene functions in specific brain regions. We propose that combining bioinformatics with the gene expression pattern is an effective strategy to identify genes that may play critical roles during brain development.

  • The mouse mahoganoid coat color mutation disrupts a novel C3HC4 RING domain protein.

    The mouse coat color mutant mahoganoid (md) darkens coat color and decreases the obesity of A(y) mice that ectopically overexpress agouti-signaling protein. The phenotypic effects of md are similar to those of the recently identified coat color mutant mahogany (Atrn(mg)). We report the positional cloning of mahoganoid, encoding a novel 494-amino acid protein containing a C3HC4 RING (really interesting new gene) domain that may function as an E3 ubiquitin ligase. The mutations in the mahoganoid allelic series (md, md(2J), md(5J)) are all due to large retroviral insertions. In md and md(2J), the result is minimal expression of the normal size transcripts in all tissues examined. Unlike Atrn(mg/)Atrn(mg) animals, we observe no evidence of neurological deficit or neuropathology in md/md mice. Body weight and body mass index (a surrogate for adiposity) measurements of B6.C3H-md-A md/+ and md/md animals on 9% and 45% kcal fat diets indicate that mahoganoid does not suppress body weight in B6.C3H animals in a gene dose-dependent fashion. Mahoganoid effects on energy homeostasis are, therefore, most evident in the circumstances of epistasis to hypothalamic overexpression of ASP in A(y) and possible other obesity-causing mutations.

    The functional capacities of stromal cell lines to support stem cell activity are heterogeneous and the mechanism of how they support bone marrow cultures remains unclear. Recently, we reported a strategy of functional analysis in which a genetic approach is combined with phenotype-based complementation screening to search for a novel secreted growth factor from mouse bone marrow stroma called ShIF that supported proliferation of bone marrow cells. To investigate the role of stromal cells in hemopoiesis, we extended this strategy to search for stroma-derived proteins that induce cell proliferation by establishing stroma-dependent Ba/F3 mutants of three stroma cell lines from two mouse tissues. Seven stroma-dependent Ba/F3 mutants were used as responder cells to identify cDNAs from stroma cell lines whose products supported proliferation not only to the mutant cells but also to hemopoietic progenitor cells in vitro.

  • Genome-wide expression profiling of mid-gestation placenta and embryo using a 15,000 mouse developmental cDNA microarray.

    cDNA microarray technology has been increasingly used to monitor global gene expression patterns in various tissues and cell types. However, applications to mammalian development have been hampered by the lack of appropriate cDNA collections, particularly for early developmental stages. To overcome this problem, a PCR-based cDNA library construction method was used to derive 52,374 expressed sequence tags from pre- and peri-implantation embryos, embryonic day (E) 12.5 female gonad/mesonephros, and newborn ovary. From these cDNA collections, a microarray representing 15,264 unique genes (78% novel and 22% known) was assembled. In initial applications, the divergence of placental and embryonic gene expression profiles was assessed. At stage E12.5 of development, based on triplicate experiments, 720 genes (6.5%) displayed statistically significant differences in expression between placenta and embryo. Among 289 more highly expressed in placenta, 61 placenta-specific genes encoded, for example, a novel prolactin-like protein. The number of genes highly expressed (and frequently specific) for placenta has thereby been increased 5-fold over the total previously reported, illustrating the potential of the microarrays for tissue-specific gene discovery and analysis of mammalian developmental programs.

    Little is known about gene action in the preimplantation events that initiate mammalian development. Based on cDNA collections made from each stage from egg to blastocyst, 25438 3'-ESTs were derived, and represent 9718 genes, half of them novel. Thus, a considerable fraction of mammalian genes is dedicated to embryonic expression. This study reveals profound changes in gene expression that include the transient induction of transcripts at each stage. These results raise the possibility that development is driven by the action of a series of stage-specific expressed genes. The new genes, 798 of them placed on the mouse genetic map, provide entry points for analyses of human and mouse developmental disorders.
