The most significant application of comparative genomics in molecular medicine is the identification of drug targets of many infectious diseases. The predicted role, for at least a subset of these receptors, in carbohydrate sensing, is consistent with their expansion in Cytophaga hutchinsonii that is known to actively metabolize polysaccharides [56]. PubMed  A great diversity of multi-pass membrane receptors, typically with 7 transmembrane (TM) helices, is observed in the eukaryote crown group.

The presence of intracellular DNA-binding domains in certain 7TMR-DISMs suggests that they may take advantage of the non-compartmentalized state of the chromosome in bacteria to directly bind DNA and regulate transcription in response to ligand-induced conformational changes. Here, I present how a comparative genomics framework may provide a deeper understanding of evolutionary process connectivity. 1997, 8: 581-599. Google Scholar.

Application of the comparative genomics: Synteny and co-linearity: Aim of studying the comparative genomics: Comparative genomics provides a detailed study and process of the evolution of the … The membrane-spanning domain of the 5TMR-LYT family is distinguished from other membrane spanning domains by the presence of certain distinctive sequence features. Naturwissenschaften 91, 405–421 (2004). This architecture, along with the limited phyletic pattern of these 7TMR (only found in animals), could imply that they were acquired from an as yet unknown prokaryotic source. 2001, 411: 355-365. 10.1142/S0129065797000537. 2000, 7: 626-633.

Considering the importance and broad … Mougel C, Zhulin IB: CHASE: an extracellular sensing domain common to transmembrane receptors from prokaryotes, lower eukaryotes and plants. Conserved residues typical of the 7TMR-DISMED1 are shown in ball stick representation. As a result, we were able to identify two distinct families of 7TM receptors, namely 7TMR-DISM and 7TMR-HD that are unique to bacteria. Field D, Hood D, Moxon R (1999) Contribution of genomics to bacterial pathogenesis. Interestingly, three DNA binding domains, the AraC-type HTH [44], the OmpR-type HTH [45, 46] and the bacterial IS1-like Zn finger domains (VA & LA unpublished), are also fused C-termini of certain 7TM receptors from Leptospira and Cytophaga (Figure 2). The approach is based on selection for the gene or regulatory region constraining the evolution of the sequence. The architectures of most of the 7TMR-HD and 7TMR-DISM proteins are reminiscent of the animal metabotropic glutamate and taste receptors. Multiple alignments were constructed using the T_Coffee program [73], followed by manual correction based on the PSI-BLAST results. We also detected two evolutionarily mobile membrane-spanning domains, namely 5TM-LYT and 8TMR-UT that are associated with several different types of intracellular domains. Using classical genetics, evolutionary relationships can be studied by comparing the chromosome size, number, and banding patterns between populations, species, and genera. 1996, 5: 1421-1425. However, the most striking pattern observed in the evolutionary tree of the 7TMR-DISMs was the presence of multiple well-supported clusters (Rell BP~70–100%) comprised entirely or largely of proteins from a single organism (Figure 2). Amongst the crown group eukaryotes, such as slime molds, fungi and animals, serpentine or seven-transmembrane receptors (7TMR) are a very widely used class of receptors.

The model was constructed using bacteriorhodopsin (PDB: 1C3W) and bovine retinal rhodopsin (PDB:1F88) as templates. The two major groups of these receptors, typically associated with either 7TMR-DISMED2s (upper group) or 7TMR-DISMED1s (lower group), are separated by a spacer.

Hence, it is likely that in C. pneumoniae the 7TMR-HD has acquired a distinct function, which may be related to the expression of these pathogen-specific surface proteins. 8C). Trends Genet 16:369–372, Hardison RC, Oeltjen J, Miller W (1997) Long human–mouse sequence alignments reveal novel regulatory elements: a reason to sequence the mouse genome. Comparative genomics is playing major role in extracting useful information from biological sequences. J Bacteriol. Predicting regulatory elements is even more difficult than exon prediction, but again, comparisons pinpointing conserved sequence motifs upstream of translation start sites are helping to unravel gene regulatory networks. The occurrence of YbeY next to the DgkA gene, and the fusions of the YbeY protein with the DgkA protein, suggest a function for it in the same pathway as DgkA, namely lipid-head-group metabolism. Kraulis PJ: Molscript. The clearest functional clues for the 8TMR-UT domain comes from the E. coli UhpB protein, whose C-terminal intracellular histidine kinase transfers a phosphate to the receiver domain of the transcription factor UhpA. Accordingly, we refer to this domain as the 8TMR-UT domain (for 8 trans membrane UhpB type domain). 2 APPROACH . Numerous receptors, which are constructed on this basic architectural principle, are known from all the three domains of life. My laboratory works on genome sequencing, immunoproteogenomics, antibiotics sequencing, and comparative genomics - computational technologies that enabled new applications and allowed … In animals the 7TMRs predominantly function via heterotrimeric GTPases (G-proteins), which in turn relay a signal to a variety of effectors, such as adenylyl cyclases, phospholipases and ion channels. 10.1101/gr.10.8.1204. In their intracellular portions they contain fusions to a variety of signaling domains, which suggest that they are likely to transduce signals via cyclic AMP, cyclic diguanylate, histidine phosphorylation, dephosphorylation, and through direct interactions with DNA. These are likely to represent two-component systems in which the transcription factors are modulated by the signal-activated 7TMR-DISM proteins (Figure 2). J Bacteriol. 2001, 307: 1271-1292.

Proteins belonging to each of these sub-divisions often show a sporadic phyletic pattern, and often 8TMR-UT domains from distantly related organisms group closely together in the tree (Fig. 2000, 69: 183-215. 10.1016/S1369-5274(02)00310-7. el Hassouni M, Henrissat B, Chippaux M, Barras F: Nucleotide sequences of the arb genes, which control beta-glucoside utilization in Erwinia chrysanthemi: comparison with the Escherichia coli bgl operon and evidence for a new beta-glycohydrolase family including enzymes from eubacteria, archeabacteria, and humans. 10.1046/j.1365-2958.2003.03395.x. 2001, 40: 7761-7772. While there are numerous prokaryotic signaling proteins with TM domains, a widely utilized sensory TM domain is likely to exhibit the following characteristics: 1) distinctive sequence or structural features that clearly distinguish them from generic multi-TM proteins and previously characterized transporters. Learn more about Institutional subscriptions, Abril JF, Guigó R, Wiehe T (2004) gff2aplot: plotting sequence comparisons. Operons related to the Uhp operon are seen in number of bacteria, suggesting that a similar signal relay system is widely employed in sugar sensing by bacteria. Most members of the 7TMR-DISM family are fused to one of two extracellular domains at their N-termini. BMC Genomics Publications; People; Overview (active tab) The main research interest of our group is to understand the complex relationships between genome sequences and phenotypes and how these two features evolve within and across species. Another family of potential bacterial 7TMRs that was recovered by our receptor search procedure was typified by slr0104 from Synechocystis. This will not only identify underlying molecular mechanisms, but will further address the impact of gain vs loss of gene and TE sequences on genome size evolution and dysploid CRs during species diversification.
