We made use of the Gal4 knock-in alleles to direct UAS-GFP reporter expression in the endogenous miR-263a and miR-263b expression domains. [score:7]
If Cyclin E over -expression is the cause of the bristle loss in miR-263a mutants, limiting their capacity to express Cyclin E should suppress this phenotype. [score:7]
Therefore over -expression of a biologically important target in miR-263a expressing cells would be expected to result in IOB loss, phenocopying the miR-263a mutant phenotype. [score:7]
Similarly, over -expression of the anti-apoptotic protein DIAP1, a direct target of the proapoptotic protein Hid [23], was able to prevent IOB loss in miR-263a flies (Figure 4A, 4B). [score:6]
To test this possibility, we made use of miR-263a- Gal4 to express the anti-apoptotic protein p35 in miR-263a expressing cells. [score:5]

miR-263b-Gal4 was used to drive over -expression of target genes in this series of experiments because it has higher Gal4 activity than miR-263a-Gal4. [score:5]
Similarly, reducing hid levels by expression of a UAS-hid -RNAi transgene under the control of miR-263b-Gal4 produced a strong suppression of the miR-263a mutant phenotype (Figure 5C, 5D). [score:5]

miR-263a and miR-263b Gal4 knock-in alleles were made using a modified targeting vector [13]. [score:4]
hid downregulation by miR-263a is required for IOB formation. [score:4]
To address whether hid is a direct target of miR-263a, we generated luciferase reporter constructs carrying the full length endogenous hid 3′UTR or mutant versions in which two nucleotides of each predicted miR-263a site were mutated to compromise pairing to the miRNA seed region (Figure 6A, in red). [score:4]
The genetic evidence presented here identifies hid as a key target of the miR-263 family in supporting bristle development. [score:4]

Although Cyclin E is upregulated in the miR-263a mutant, this does not appear to contribute to the bristle loss phenotype. [score:4]
To this end, we produced Gal4 “knock-in” alleles of miR-263a and miR-263b, in which the miRNA hairpin sequences were replaced by Gal4 and mini-white (using a modified targeting vector; [13]). [score:4]

In light of the observation that loss of miR-263b has a milder impact than loss of miR-263a, these results imply that the two miRNAs have targets in common in their role during IOB development. [score:4]
We have explored the possibility that miR-263a/b might function in a regulatory feed-forward network to control hid both directly and indirectly. [score:4]
hid Is a Direct Target of miR-263a/b The hid 3′UTR contains four potential miR-263a binding sites (Figure 6A). [score:4]
We report that a pair of related microRNAs, miR-263a/b, protect sense organs during this pruning process by directly acting upon and limiting the expression of the proapoptotic gene hid. [score:4]
RNA was extracted from 30 h pupal eye imaginal discs from flies expressing a GFP reporter carrying the hid 3′UTR or a mutated version of it, in a miR-263a mutant or wild-type control background. [score:3]
Therefore, miR-263b and miR-263a can each act directly via these sites to regulate hid mRNA levels. [score:3]
Quantification of macrochaetae on head and thorax of adult flies: wild-type (WT), miR-263a mutant (Δ263a/bft), miR-263a mutant expressing an UAS-miR-263a transgene (rescue flies: Δ263a-G4/bft; UAS-263a/+), miR-263a miR-263b double mutant (Δ263a/bft; Δ263b/Def, where Def represents the genomic deficiency Df(3L)X-21.2), miR-263a mutant with one copy of the antimorphic hid allele W [1] (Δ263a/bft; W [1]/+). [score:3]
To address this we introduced the antimorphic allele of hid, W [1], into miR-263a miRNA mutant flies and found that mechanosensory bristle loss on head and thorax was also significantly suppressed (Figure S3; p<0.001). [score:3]
Identification of miR-263a Targets. [score:3]
Taken together, these data suggest that miR-263a serves to prevent apoptosis in the IOB precursors by limiting hid expression during the wave of interommatidial cell pruning. [score:3]
The absence of the mature miR-263a miRNA was confirmed by Northern blot using total RNA isolated from adult flies homozygous mutant for the targeted allele (Δ263a, Figure 1B). [score:3]
Basal focal planes, left to right: DAPI labelled nuclei (blue in merged image); GFP whose expression was driven with miR-263a-Gal4 (I) or miR-263b-Gal4 (J) (green in merged image); Pax2 labelled IOB sheath (small nuclei) and bristle shaft cells (large nuclei; red in merged image). [score:3]
In this scenario, miR-263a would act directly to repress hid and indirectly via the RAS/MAPK pathway (illustrated in Figure S8). [score:3]
miR-263a inhibits apoptosis in the shaft cells. [score:3]
Cell lysates were obtained from 30 h pupal eye imaginal discs from flies expressing a luciferase reporter carrying the hid 3′UTR, or the mutated version of it, in a miR-263a mutant or wild-type background. [score:3]
In S2 cells, co -expression of the luciferase reporter carrying the intact sites with miR-263a significantly reduced luciferase activity (Figure 6B, p<0.001). [score:3]
Intriguingly, an upstream element of the MAPK pathway, Ras85D, is a predicted target of miR-263a. [score:3]
miR-263a has several hundred computationally predicted targets [24], [25]. [score:3]
A lower level of Gal4-independent expression that results from leakiness of the UAS-miR-263a transgene also conferred partial rescue of IOB loss in the Δ263a/bft background (Figure 2A, 2B). [score:3]
This difference was abolished in miR-263a mutant flies rescued by expression of UAS-miR-263a under miR-263a-Gal4 control. [score:3]
Δ263a denotes the targeted miR-263a deletion, bft denotes the bft [24] allele described in [11]. [score:3]
Although miR-263b differs from miR-263a by three residues, including position 1 of the seed region, hid is also a predicted target of miR-263b (Figure S6; [24], [25]). [score:3]
Rescue occurred at levels of miR-263b several-fold above normal (Figure 2D, green bars), suggesting that miR-263b can replace miR-263a when over-expressed. [score:3]
The bristle loss on head and thorax observed in miR-263a mutants was also rescued by Gal4 -dependent expression of UAS-miR-263a (Figure S3). [score:3]
Middle and right panels: transgenes were expressed under miR-263a-Gal4 control. [score:3]
Left panel: miR-263a mutant with one copy of hid [05014]; middle panel: miR-263a mutant with one copy of the antimorphic hid allele W [1]; right panel: miR-263a mutant expressing a UAS-hid -RNAi transgene under control of miR-263b-Gal4. [score:3]
Thus miR-263a/b may have a dedicated antiapoptotic role to ensure the robustness of sense organ development in a fluctuating developmental landscape. [score:3]
Taken together these experiments provide evidence that miR-263a acts directly via the sites identified in the 3′UTR to regulate hid mRNA levels in vivo. [score:3]
Nonetheless, expression of UAS-miR-263b under miR-263b-Gal4 control was able to rescue the miR-263a mutant phenotype (Figure 2C, 2D). [score:3]
To test whether hid over -expression is the cause of bristle loss, we reduced hid activity in the miR-263a mutant background by introducing the hid [05014] loss of function allele [22]. [score:3]
Ras85D is on the list of predicted miR-263a targets (but not on the miR-263b list due to differences in the seed sequence). [score:3]
Through a process of experimental validation we identify hid, among over 50 candidates examined in vivo, as a biologically important target of miR-263a/b in this context. [score:3]
Reducing the dosage of CycE to wild-type levels does not rescue bristle loss, which indicates that over -expression of CycE is not the cause of the miR-263a phenotype. [score:3]
Drosophila miR-263a and miR-263b are expressed in sense organ precursors in embryos [11], [56] and in mechanosensory organs of the eye, antenna, and haltere ([11], [50], this report). [score:3]
However, apoptotic Pax2 -expressing nuclei corresponding to bristle shaft cells were seen in miR-263a mutants (arrows, Figure 4D). [score:3]
We also did not find evidence that miR-263a/b act in the context of a gene regulatory network. [score:2]
It is noteworthy that as little as 20% of normal miR-263a levels are sufficient to support IOB development. [score:2]

Whether there is more than a coincidental similarity to the role of miR-263a/b in support of sensory hair development in Drosophila remains to be determined. [score:2]
However, as shown in Figure 6F, hid primary transcript levels were not significantly affected in the miR-263a mutant, although mature hid mRNA levels increased due to loss of miRNA direct mediated repression. [score:2]
To determine whether hid might be a biologically relevant target of miR-263a in vivo, we compared hid mRNA levels in RNA samples from mutant and control pupal eye discs. [score:2]
Negative regulation of Ras85D by miR-263a would repress MAPK activity and alleviate repression of hid transcription and of Hid protein activity. [score:2]
The available evidence suggests that miR-263a/b may have a dedicated role in controlling hid -induced apoptosis during developmental pruning of interommatidial cells. [score:2]
These findings indicate that miR-263a acts to protect these sense organs from the wave of programmed cell death that sweeps over the retina during early pupal development. [score:2]
In this report we present evidence that the miR-263a/b family of miRNAs contributes to the robustness of sense organ development. [score:2]

Comparable results were obtained comparing GFP reporter transgenes with intact and mutated sites in control and miR-263a mutants (Figure S7). [score:1]

For example, CLK-CYC might stimulate the rhythmic expression of a transcriptional inhibitor that blocks expression of miR-263a and -263b during the day. [score:7]
The daily patterns of changes in the levels of miR-263a and -263b are somewhat reminiscent of mRNA targets directly regulated by CLK-CYC. [score:5]
However, whereas the levels of bona-fide direct targets of CLK-CYC, such as dper and tim, are reduced in cyc [01 ]flies [19, 24], the abundance of miR-263a and -263b are pegged at peak amounts (Fig. 2). [score:4]
These considerations raise the possibility that the circadian expression of miR-263a and -263b is not directly driven by core clock transcription factors. [score:4]
Of the 78 miRNAs that we probed by expression profiling only dme-miR263a and -263b displayed strong evidence of circadian regulation (with possible weak cycling for dme-miR-124). [score:4]
Other possible targets of miR-263a and miR-263b include doubletime (dbt) and twins (tws), respectively. [score:3]
Using this more limited search, we noted that Clk might be a target of both miR-263a and -263b (Table 1). [score:3]

Importantly, the levels of miR-263a and -263b were constant throughout a daily cycle in the cyc [01 ]mutant, indicative of bona-fide circadian regulation (Fig. 2A and 2B). [score:2]
Although it is not clear why the daily profiles are slightly different when comparing results obtained using the microarray platform or qRT-PCR, the combined results clearly indicate circadian regulation in the levels of dme-miR-263a and -263b. [score:2]
Intriguingly, the mature forms of dme-miR-263a and -263b are very similar in sequence to several miRNAs recently shown to be under circadian regulation in the mouse retina, suggesting conserved functions. [score:2]
A common mechanism likely underlies daily changes in the levels of dme-miR-263a and -263b. [score:1]
We find two miRNAs (dme-miR-263a and -263b) that exhibit robust daily changes in abundance in wildtype flies that are abolished in the cyc [01 ]mutant. [score:1]
Of these, only two miRNAs (dme-miR-263a and -263b) in wildtype control flies exhibited daily abundance changes that were statistically significant using the ANOVA with 5% FDR test (Fig. 2A and 2B). [score:1]
These results indicate that changes in the amounts of miR-263a and -263b are not merely driven by daily light-dark cycle but are dependent on a functional clock. [score:1]
However, even though miR-263a and -263b are paralogous genes in the same family (miR-263) with very similar mature sequences (Fig. 4A), they are found on the second and third chromosomes, respectively. [score:1]
We confirmed that both dme-miR-263a and -263b cycle using quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR) and also showed that these oscillations persist in constant dark conditions (Fig. 2C and 2D). [score:1]
Although potentially coincidental, the mature sequence for miR-183 in vertebrates is very similar to that of both D. melanogaster dme-miR-263a and miR-263b (Figs. 4B and 4C). [score:1]
Of these, dme-miR-124 showed a pattern very similar to that of dme-miR-263a and -263b, exhibiting trough levels during the mid-day that were followed by increases during the early to late-night in wildtype flies and constantly elevated levels in the cyc [0 ]mutant (Fig. 3B). [score:1]
The values for miR-263a and miR-263b were normalized to the relative copy number of rp49 or cbp20 cDNAs. [score:1]
This could be especially relevant to this study as evolutionary evidence suggests a different 5' end for miR-263a [51]. [score:1]
dme-miR-263a and -263b reach trough levels during the daytime, peak during the night and their levels are constitutively elevated in cyc [01 ]flies. [score:1]
