Title: Loss of motoneuron-specific microRNA-218 causes systemic neuromuscular failure [RNA-seq]      
dateReleased:
12-18-2015
description:
We investigated microRNA expression in motoneurons by performing small RNA sequencing of fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS)-isolated motoneurons labelled with the Hb9:gfp transgenic reporter and Hb9:gfp negative non-motoneurons including spinal interneurons. We find that one microRNA, microRNA-218, is highly enriched and abundantly expressed in motoneurons. Furthermore, we find that miR-218 is transcribed from alternative, motoneuron-specific alternative promoters embedded within the Slit2 and Slit3 genes by performing RNA sequencing of FACS-isolated motoneurons and a dissected embryonic floor plate cells which served as a control. Next, we performed RNA sequencing of FACS-isolated wild type (WT) motoneurons and motoneurons lacking miR-218 expression (218DKO motoneurons), and find that a large set of genes (named 'TARGET218' genes) with predicted miR-218 binding sites are de-repressed in the absence of miR-218 expression. Finally, we examine the expression of TARGET218 genes in other neuronal subpopulations by FACS-isolating V1, V2a, and V3 interneurons expressing Cre-inducible fluorescent reporters and performing RNA sequencing. We find that the TARGET218 network of genes is depleted in wild-type motoneurons versus these interneuron types. Additionally, these genes are expressed at similar levels in 218DKO motoneurons compared with interneuron subtypes, suggesting that this genetic network. Examination of mRNA expression in spinal progenitor, glial, and neuronal subpopulations.
