How the monkeyflower gets its spots - UC Berkeley
In a new paper, Blackman and his group at UC Berkeley, in collaboration with Yaowu Yuan and his group at the University of Connecticut, reveal for the first time the genetic programming that helps the monkeyflower — and likely other patterned flowers — achieve their spotted glory. The study was published online today (Thursday, Feb. 20) in the journal Current Biology.
“While we know a good deal about how hue is specified in flower petals — whether it is red or orange or blue, for instance — we don’t know a lot about how those pigments are then painted into patterns on petals during development to give rise to these spots and stripes that are often critical for interacting with pollinators,” Blackman said. “Our lab, in collaboration with others, has developed the genetic tools to be able to identify the genes related to these patterns and perturb them so that we can confirm what’s actually going on.”
In the study, the research team used CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to recreate the yellow monkeyflower patterns found in nature. On the left, a wild-type monkeyflower exhibits the typical spotted pattern. In the middle, a heterozygote with one normal RTO gene and one damaged RTO gene exhibits blotchier spots. And on the right, homozygote with two copies of the damaged RTO gene is all red, with no spots. (UC Berkeley photo by Srinidhi Holalu)
The positions of petals’ spots aren’t mapped out ahead of time, like submarines in a game of battleship, Blackman said. Instead, scientists have long theorized that they could come about through the workings of an activator-repressor system, following what is known as a reaction-diffusion model, in which an activator molecule stimulates a cell to produce the red-colored pigment that produces a spot. At the same time, a repressor molecule is expressed and sent to neighboring cells to instruct them not to produce the red pigment.
The results are small, dispersed bunches of red cells surrounded by cells that keep... Mar 19, 2020

Mass. Lawmaker Used Campaign Funds for Golf, Rental Cars, Flowers for Girlfriend: FBI - NBC10 Boston
This included $7,000 in kitchen and bathroom work done in his home and $7,000 in check payments from a contractor; gambling income from a Connecticut casino; and thousands of dollars that he stole from his campaign account.
Nangle has served in the state Legislature since 1999. He is the former chairman and a current member of the House Committee on Ethics, and also serves on the House Committee on Rules and the Joint Committee on Rules.
State House News Service says he is a division chair in House Speaker Robert DeLeo's leadership team.
DeLeo called the allegations against Nangle "serious and troubling" and said they represent "a significant betrayal of public trust," in a statement issued by his office on Tuesday afternoon.
"I was shocked and disappointed to learn of his indictment this morning," DeLeo said.
He said Nangle has been a friend and colleague for over 20 years and never once did he have any idea that he had a gambling problem.
DeLeo said the House of Representatives received a federal grand jury subpoena from the U.S. Attorney requesting records relating to the case and is cooperating fully with the investigation.
