brat tumor neuroblast possess increased proliferation potential.

(A) Cartoon depicting a Drosophila larval brain (OL optic lobe, VNC ventral nerve cord) harboring different neuroblast populations: mushroom body NBs (grey), type I (NBI, green) and II (NBII, orange) neuroblasts. Close-up shows a NBII lineage (iINP - immature intermediate neural progenitor, mINP - mature INP, GMC - ganglion mother cell) and the typical arrangement of cell types in a NBII clone (left). Proteins (blue) are asymmetrically segregated in NBII and mINP to ensure lineage directionality (right). (B) In brat mutants, the smaller daughter cell fails to differentiate and after a transient cell cycle block regrows into an ectopic neuroblast (tNB - tumor neuroblast). brat tumors continue to grow upon transplantation. (C) Representative images of adult host flies injected with FACS-sorted control NBs (GFP+) and brat RNAi tNBs (RFP+) from third instar larvae. Transplantations of brain pieces served as controls.

brat tumors form independently of common DNA alterations.

(A) DNA content analysis of brat k06028 mutant and control brains showing non-dividing (2n) and mitotic cells (4n). DNA content for each genotype is shown separately in small boxes. (B–F) Genome sequencing of bratk06028 brains and abdominal tissue (control). Note that Drosophila brain cells are diploid while the control samples harbor endo-replicating tissue and follicle cells with increased DNA copy number. (B) A representative coverage plot of chromosome arm 2L of one tumor is shown (top row), together with datasets indicating under-replicated (blue) and amplified (magenta) genomic regions. (C) Close-ups of boxes marked in (B) showing steady tumor coverage (red) and a drop (under-replication) or increase (amplification) in the coverage of the control sample (green). (D) Genes with identified somatic point mutations (coverage tumor >14 and control >8, allelic frequency ≥0.1) of three tumors do not overlap. (E) Affected genomic regions of identified small InDels. (F) In tumor 2 and 3, one small InDel each was identified in an exon with low allelic frequency. Affected genes are indicated.

The lncRNA CR43283 is upregulated in brat tumor neuroblasts.

(A) Cartoon illustrating the strategy to isolate NBII and tNBs. (B) Schematic overview of DigiTAG. cDNA fragments of the sequencing library harbor random 8-mer index tags (barcodes) unique for each individual molecule. After sequencing, reads are mapped and barcodes are assigned to each read. Reads with identical barcodes are removed to avoid amplification biases. (C) Scatter plot showing the expression in tNBs and NBIIs of genes detected by DigiTAG. Genes significantly up- or downregulated are shown in black (FDR 0.01, p<0.01), genes unchanged in expression levels in grey. CR43283 (cherub) is highlighted in red. (D) Protein coding genes show positive CSF scores, CR43283 has a negative CSF score (non-coding) similar to well known lncRNAs (roX1, CRG). CSF score for each isoform of a gene is depicted.

Figure 6 with 3 supplements
The RNA-binding protein Staufen segregates cherub asymmetrically into the INP upon cell division.

(A) Close-up images of NB clones in interphase. In NBs (arrowhead) cherub FISH signal is detected as two dots and cortically enriched. Nearest daughter cells (arrows) show high cherub levels in the cytoplasm. Scale bars 20 μm. (B) Close-up of a NBI and a NBII lineage. Cell types are defined by cell size and the marker combination of Dpn and Ase according to the cartoon.

(C) Close-up images of cherub localization in a mitotic NBII outlined by membrane-bound GFP in vivo. Scale bar 10 μm. (D) Representative image of a dividing NBII in vitro. 100% of mitotic NBIIs show cherub crescents (E) opposite to the apical aPKC crescent as measured by the angle between aPKC and cherub crescents. An angle of 180° corresponds to crescents opposite each other. n = 23 NBIIs. Scale bar 10 μm.

Scale bars 10 μm. (G) Ratios of cytoplasmic cherub intensity of INP (or daughter cell) and NBII are depicted. In control, asymmetric cell division leads to higher cherub levels in INPs (n = 11 NB-INP pairs from four different brains). Upon the expression of aPKCΔN (n = 11 NB-daughter cell pairs from four different brains) or miranda RNAi (n = 12 NB-daughter cell pairs from four different brains), cherub levels are similar in NBIIs and their recently born (closest) daughter cell. Data are mean ±SD. (H) cherub localization in control and upon staufen knockdown. Brain lobes (top) and NBII (bottom) are outlined. Scale bars 50 and 10 μm. Driver line was UAS-dcr2; insc-GAL4, UAS-CD8::GFP.

Data are mean ±SD. (J) RIP-qPCR analysis for cherub and the non-Staufen target RpL32. Note that brain lysates from brat k06028 mutants were used to enrich for NBs as cherub is only cortically localized in NBs. Data are mean ±SD. n = 3 independent RIP-qPCR experiments, Student’s t-test. *p<0.05. (K) Cartoon of a mitotic NB with apical and basal crescents. Close-up of the basal crescent (right) shows that the Staufen-Miranda complex localizes cherub to the plasma membrane.

Below, pairwise alignments of 27 D. species with D. melanogaster. Darker grey values indicate higher levels of conservation as scored by phastCons. Ns in the gap region are marked in yellow, one or more unalignable bases in the gap region are shown as double line and a discontinuity is highlighted with a blue bar. A scheme of the phylogenetic tree depicts the relationship between different Drosophila species (left). Sequence repeats and evolutionary conserved RNA structures are depicted.

Cortical cherub levels are increased in brat tNBs.

(A) Representative images show NB linages marked by insc-GAL4; UAS-CD8::GFP. FISH signals from the probe set against cherub, including nuclear foci in NBs (arrows), were abolished upon RNase treatment. RNase H treatment was performed post-hybridization to allow DNA oligonucleotide probes to bind to its target RNAs, as RNase H specifically cleaves RNA/DNA duplexes. Scale bars 10 µm. (B) cherub intensity measurements across cells show higher cherub at the periphery (cortex) of tNBs than of NBIIs. For each condition n = 10 NBs.
