Host: Anne Ferguson-Smith

Transcriptional changes elicited by signalling are key to many developmental and pathological processes. Often these are considered only in terms of simple static patterns of on/off gene expression, I will discuss two ongoing projects that highlight the importance of looking beyond. First, investigating the maintenance of Drosophila muscle progenitors we discovered that signaling switches the type of RNA produced; Notch activity directs muscle progenitors to produce an alternate zfh1/ZEB1 RNA -isoform that protects them from differentiation. Second, using the MS2 /MCP system to live-image transcription in real-time from two Notch responsive enhancers we reveal that signaling elicits highly dynamic profiles of transcription and how these differ according to other spatial inputs.
