B cell becomes R7 neuron when signal detected A B R7 A B cone Signal Target Perform genetic screen for loss of cellular output that resembles loss of signaling cell B cell becomes cone cell instead of R7 neuron Loss of signal can be from mutation in ligand, receptor, or intracellular effectors A X Selective killing of A cell results in B cell becoming a cone cell instead of R7 neuron A cell sends signal to B cell to become R7 neuron 13 B R7 B cone

A Mutant Ligand B Wild type ligand B Wild type receptor A Mutant Receptor Perform mutant clonal analysis to determine cellular autonomy of the effects Ex. If A cell is mutant and B cell is wild type, what phenotype do you see? If mutation is in receptor, then the B cell will become R7 neuron. If mutation is in ligand, then the B cell will become cone cell. Which cell is the signaling cell and which one is the target? Clonal Analysis Allows for Determination of Cellular Autonomy 14 Green=wild type Pink=mutant

G-protein coupled receptors 7-pass transmembrane receptors N-term extracellular C-term cytoplasmic Associate with trimeric G-proteins Act as GEF for G-protein Lead to increases in second messengers cAMP Ca++ Effector molecules found in membrane 16

Trimeric G-protein Composed of 3 subunits: α , β , and γ α contains GTPase activity α and γ tethered to plasma membrane via lipid tails When α bound to GDP, also interacts with β and γ > This is the off position When GPCR activated, binds to G- protein and acts as a GEF Stimulates exchange of GDP for GTP in the α subunit 17

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
