Although we do not know whether the slit2 is expressed in proepicardial cells, it is tempting to speculate that the up regulation of the Tbx5- miR-218 circuit might also impact the proepicardial cell migration by targeting robo1 or other cell migration regulators such as Semaphorins, some members of this large class of molecules being predicted targets of miR-218 (not shown). [score:9]
Tbx5 over -expression tripled slit2 expression, almost doubled miR-218 expression and had no effect on slit3 expression (Fig. 1C). [score:9]
To verify whether miR-218 over -expression can affect cardiac valve development, we analyzed the expression of the tie-2 gene, a member of the Tie family of tyrosine kinase receptors, which is expressed mainly in endothelial cells [31] and is up regulated during atrio-ventricular canal differentiation [32], [33]. [score:9]
Moreover, the transfection of a siRNA mix against Slit2 cut the level of Slit2 by half without affecting miR-218 expression, supporting the idea that miR-218 expression depends on the regulation of Slit2 transcription rather than on its translation. [score:8]
Interestingly, down-regulation of miR-218 is able to rescue most of the defects generated by Tbx5 over -expression, demonstrating the pivotal role of miR-218 in mediating the effects of Tbx5 dosage on heart development. [score:7]
To show that the slit/ miR-218 increase was at least partially dependent on Tbx5, tbx5 was up- or down-regulated by transfecting P19CL6 cells with a tbx5-carrying expression vector (CMV-Tbx5), or with a siRNA mix directed against tbx5, respectively. [score:7]
slit3 expression was also analyzed since its host miRNA, miR-218-2, cannot be separately quantified because it is identical to miR-218-1. In agreement with the literature [19], we observed tight co -expression of slit2 and miR-218, and a general correlation among tbx5, slit2, slit3 and miR-218 expression (Fig. S2). [score:7]
The knockdown efficiency of these morpholinos was confirmed by their ability to down-regulate mature miR-218 (Fig. S4A), and to rescue the phenotype caused by miR-218a over -expression (Fig. S4B). [score:7]
miR-218 and Robo1 are supposed to be upregulated and downregulated, respectively, when myocardial cell migration is about to end. [score:7]
Therefore it is likely that modulation of Tbx5 in general, and over -expression of miR-218 as a consequence of Tbx5 up-regulation in particular, might have a higher impact on CHD population than previously hypothesized. [score:6]
In this view, Tbx5 mis -expression by mRNA microinjection at the one-cell stage might speed up the up-regulation of miR-218 and reduce the migration of myocardial cells precociously, which in turn might affect heart morphogenesis by impairing the correct interaction between myocardial and endocardial cells. [score:6]
Tbx5 Over -expression can be Rescued by Down-regulation of miR-218. [score:6]
Therefore our data showing a migration delay of cmlc2 -positive cardiac precursors in embryos over -expressing miR-218 (Fig. 4), but not in embryos in which miR-218 was down-regulated by MO-218 injection (Fig. 4C), are in line with these findings. [score:6]
We confirmed a correlation between tbx5 and miR-218 expression and showed that alterations of miR-218 expression have a significant impact on zebrafish heart development. [score:6]
Down-regulation of miR-218 can rescue the defects generated by tbx5 over -expression. [score:6]
This hypothesis is supported by the observation that miR-218 down-regulation by MO-218a injection rescues the effects of Tbx5 over -expression (Fig. 6). [score:6]
We reasoned that if the phenotype induced by Tbx5 over -expression was due, at least in part, to increased expression of miR-218, the co-injection of MO-218 should rescue the Tbx5 gain of function phenotype. [score:5]
The apparent lack of phenotype that we observed after MO-218a injection (Fig. 2D,I) and the very low expression of miR-218 at early developmental stages, suggest that decreased miR-218a should not contribute to the phenotype generated by Tbx5 knockdown. [score:5]
This result strengthened our hypothesis that the effect of Tbx5 over -expression on heart development might, at least in part, be be mediated by miR-218. [score:4]
Overall, these observations suggest that Tbx5 over -expression affects heart and eye development and that this might be at least partially mediated by miR-218. [score:4]

Moreover, we showed that Tbx5 deregulation affects miR-218 expression. [score:4]
org); ii) the miR-218-1 host gene, slit2, is highly sensitive to Tbx5 mis -expression [8]; iii) the secreted Slit ligands, together with their Robo receptors, contribute to the control of oriented cell tissue growth during chamber morphogenesis of the mammalian heart [18]; iv) Slit/ miR-218/Robo are part of a regulatory loop required during heart tube formation in zebrafish [16]. [score:4]
This is inconsistent with both our data and with the results of Fish et al. [16] who observed that Robo1 knock-down generates the same phenotype, because the same authors also showed that Robo1 is targeted by miR-218. [score:4]
tbx5 and miR-218 are Co-expressed in Mouse Tissues and in Cardiomyocyte Differentiation of P19CL6 Cells. [score:3]
Even after injection of high miR-218 doses, cardia bifida was never observed, suggesting that miR-218 over -expression slows down but does not arrest the migration of cardiomyocytes to the midline. [score:3]

On the other hand, tbx5 silencing, the effect of which was highest 2 days after silencing (6th day in culture, see ), caused significant reduction of slit2 and miR-218 expression 4 days after transfection (8th day in culture, Fig. 1D). [score:3]

However miR-218b, an intergenic miRNA, has very low expression, suggesting that its contribution to the global miR-218 level might be irrelevant [16]. [score:3]

Our data suggest that the haplo-insufficiency of the Tbx5 gene, at the moment the most significant cause of HOS, does not impact heart and upper limb formation through miR-218 misregulation. [score:2]
The simplest explanation for this might be that other key RNAs controlled by Tbx5 than miR-218 might be necessary for heart morphogenesis by regulating mechanisms other than myocardial cell migration. [score:2]
Our data show that miR-218 is part of a regulatory circuit through which Tbx5 controls heart morphogenesis. [score:2]
To analyze the role of miR-218 in heart development, we decided to use zebrafish since this mo del is particularly informative for studying cardiac early patterning networks due to its relatively simple two-chambered heart coupled with its ability to develop even in the absence of a functioning heart.

Since miR-23 (JX994633), miR-218 (JX994383) and miR-338 (JX994406) are present in the elephant shark, these conserved miRNAs are likely to be involved in the regulation of Runx2 expression in elephant shark, possibly during chondrogenic differentiation through mechanisms similar to that in other jawed vertebrates.
