Title: TGF β signaling functions as a sugar sensing feedback loop to regulate digestive enzyme expression      
dateReleased:
09-10-2014
description:
Organisms need to assess their nutritional state and adapt their digestive capacity to the demands for various nutrients. Modulation of digestive enzyme production represents a potential step to regulate nutriment intake. However, the role of digestion in nutrient homeostasis has been largely neglected. In this study, we analyzed the mechanism underlying glucose repression of amylase in the adult Drosophila midgut. We demonstrated that glucose represses many carbohydrases and lipases. Our data shows that the consumption of nutritious sugars stimulates the secretion of the TGFβ ligand, Dawdle. Dawdle then acts via the circulation to activate TGFβ/Activin signaling in the midgut, culminating in the repression of digestive enzyme expression. Thus, our study not only identifies a mechanism coupling sugar sensing to digestive enzyme expression but points to an important role of TGFβ/Activin signaling in sugar metabolism. RNA-sequencing of whole guts from Drosophila melannogaster OregonR adult females was performed under three feeding conditions: Standard medium, glucose, and agar. Three biological repeats were performed for each condition.
