... We analyzed the collection of heteropteran hosts (907 specimens from 138 species and 23 families) captured in Papua New Guinea (PNG), a well-known biodiversity hotspot with a considerable number of endemic species of macroorganisms, for the presence of trypanosomatids, the prevalence of infection and host specificity. In addition to discovery of numerous new parasite species, some of which may represent new trypanosomatid genera, we recorded new insect hosts for the widespread trypanosomatid species and revealed potential cases of host-parasite coevolution. Attached is the alignment of sequences used in our assay of trypanosomatid diversity in PNG. In total, 185 trypanosomatid 18S rRNA sequences (147 retrieved from the GenBank and 38 representing typing units unique for PNG) were aligned using MAFFT v. 7.4. Alignment trimming was not performed in order to preserve differences between closely related species.

... Deletion and mutation of PTEN are frequent in human cancers. These alterations disturb PI3K signaling and increase survival of cancer cells. Here, we report a pro-cancer growth Pten-NOLC1 gene fusion originated from a chr10 rearrangement. Expressed as a nuclear chimera protein, Pten-NOLC1 interacts with the promoter regions of genes like EGFR, c-MET and GAB1 and promotes cancer cell growth, invasion, and increases survivals; and increases metastasis and mortality in vivo. Pten-NOLC1 fusion is detected in primary human cancer samples and cancer cell lines from different organs. Genomic interruption of Pten-NOLC1 induces large number of cancer cell death. Genome integration of this fusion gene coupled with somatic Pten deletion produces liver cancer in mice. Our studies show that genome rearrangement of Pten-NOLC1 is functional. The nuclear interaction of Pten-NOLC1 drives cancer growth, and disruption of this fusion gene may be a potential target in the treatment of human cancers.

... The mechanisms that underpin how insertions or deletions (indels) become fixed in DNA have primarily been ascribed to replication-related and/or double-strand break (DSB)-related processes. We introduce a novel way to evaluate indels, orientating them relative to gene transcription. In so doing, we reveal a number of surprising findings: First, there is a transcriptional strand asymmetry in the distribution of mononucleotide repeat tracts in the reference human genome. Second, there is a strong transcriptional strand asymmetry of indels across 2,575 whole genome sequenced human cancers. We suggest that this is due to the activity of transcription-coupled nucleotide excision repair (TC-NER). Furthermore, TC-NER interacts with mismatch repair (MMR) under physiological conditions to produce strand bias. Finally, we show how insertions and deletions differ in their dependencies on these repair pathways. Our new analytical approach reveals new insights into the contribution of DNA repair towards indel mutagenesis in human cells.

Tetrodotoxin-sensitive sodium channels mediate action potential firing and excitability in menthol-sensitive Vglut3-lineage sensory neurons
Contributors: Ellen Lumpkin
... Small-diameter vesicular glutamate transporter 3-lineage (Vglut3lineage) dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons play an important role in mechanosensation and thermal hypersensitivity; however, little is known about their intrinsic electrical properties. We therefore set out to investigate mechanisms of excitability within this population. Calcium microfluorimetry analysis demonstrated that the cooling compound menthol selectively activates a subset of Vglut3lineage neurons. Whole-cell electrophysiological recordings showed that these small-diameter Vglut3lineage DRG neurons fire menthol-evoked action potentials and exhibited robust, transient receptor potential melastatin 8 (TRPM8)-dependent discharges at room temperature. This heightened excitability was confirmed by current-clamp and action potential phase-plot analyses, which showed menthol-sensitive Vglut3lineage neurons to have more depolarized membrane potentials, lower firing thresholds, and higher evoked firing frequencies compared with menthol-insensitive Vglut3lineage neurons. A biophysical analysis revealed native voltage-gated sodium channel (NaV) currents in menthol-sensitive Vglut3lineage neurons were resistant to entry into slow inactivation compared with menthol-insensitive neurons, which could explain differences in excitability. Multiplex in situ hybridization showed similar distributions of tetrodotoxin (TTX)-sensitive NaVs transcripts between TRPM8-positive and -negative Vglut3lineage neurons; however, NaV1.8 transcripts, which encode TTX-resistant channels, were more prevalent in TRPM8-negative neurons. Conversely, pharmacological analyses identified distinct functional contributions of NaV subunits, with NaV1.1 driving firing in menthol-sensitive neurons, whereas other small-diameter Vglut3lineage neurons rely primarily on TTX-resistant NaV channels. Additionally, when NaV1.1 channels were blocked, the remaining NaV currents readily entered into slow inactivation in menthol-sensitive Vglut3lineage neurons. Thus, these data demonstrate that TTX-sensitive NaVs drive action potential firing in menthol-sensitive sensory neurons and contribute to their heightened excitability
