Otoferlin: a multi-C2 domain protein essential for hearing
Tina Pangršič, Ellen Reisinger, Tobias Moser

Sound is encoded at synapses between cochlear inner hair cells and the auditory nerve. These synapses are anatomically and functionally specialized to transmit acoustic information with high fidelity over a lifetime. The molecular mechanisms of hair-cell transmitter release have recently attracted substantial interest. Here we review progress toward understanding otoferlin, a multi-C2 domain protein identified a decade ago by genetic analysis of human deafness. Otoferlin functions in hair-cell exocytosis. Several otoferlin C2 domains bind to Ca2+, phospholipids, and proteins. Current research reveals requirements for otoferlin in priming and fusion of synaptic vesicles during sound encoding. Understanding the molecular mechanisms through which otoferlin functions also has important implications for understanding the disease mechanisms that lead to deafness.

Drosophila Auditory Organ Genes and Genetic Hearing Defects
Pingkalai R. Senthilan, David Piepenbrock, Guvanch Ovezmyradov, Björn Nadrowski, Susanne Bechstedt, Stephanie Pauls, Margret Winkler, Wiebke Möbius, Jonathon Howard, Martin C. Göpfert

The Drosophila auditory organ shares equivalent transduction mechanisms with vertebrate hair cells, and both are specified by atonal family genes. Using a whole-organ knockout strategy based on atonal, we have identified 274 Drosophila auditory organ genes. Only four of these genes had previously been associated with fly hearing, yet one in five of the genes that we identified has a human cognate that is implicated in hearing disorders. Mutant analysis of 42 genes shows that more than half of them contribute to auditory organ function, with phenotypes including hearing loss, auditory hypersusceptibility, and ringing ears. We not only discover ion channels and motors important for hearing, but also show that auditory stimulus processing involves chemoreceptor proteins as well as phototransducer components. Our findings demonstrate mechanosensory roles for ionotropic receptors and visual rhodopsins and indicate that different sensory modalities utilize common signaling cascades.

Optical calcium imaging in the nervous system of Drosophila melanogaster
Riemensperger T, Pech U, Dipt S, Fiala A.

Drosophila melanogaster is one of the best-studied model organisms in biology, mainly because of the versatility of methods by which heredity and specific expression of genes can be traced and manipulated. Sophisticated genetic tools have been developed to express transgenes in selected cell types, and these techniques can be utilized to target DNA-encoded fluorescence probes to genetically defined subsets of neurons. Neuroscientists make use of this approach to monitor the activity of restricted types or subsets of neurons in the brain and the peripheral nervous system. Since membrane depolarization is typically accompanied by an increase in intracellular calcium ions, calcium-sensitive fluorescence proteins provide favorable tools to monitor the spatio-temporal activity across groups of neurons.

Direct gating and mechanical integrity of Drosophila auditory transducers require TRPN1.
Thomas Effertz, Björn Nadrowski, David Piepenbrock, Jörg T. Albert & Martin C. Göpfert

The elusive transduction channels for hearing are directly gated mechanically by the pull of gating springs. We found that the transient receptor potential (TRP) channel TRPN1 (NOMPC) is essential for this direct gating of Drosophila auditory transduction channels and that the channel-spring complex was disrupted if TRPN1 was lost. Our results identify TRPN1 as a mechanical constituent of the fly's auditory transduction complex that may act as the channel and/or gating spring. [more]

Neural Circuit Development in the Mammalian Cochlea
Bulankina A. V. and Moser T

The organ of Corti, the sensory epithelium of the mammalian auditory system, uses afferent and efferent synapses for encoding auditory signals and top-down modulation of cochlear function. During development, the final precisely ordered sensorineural circuit is established following excessive formation of afferent and efferent synapses and subsequent refinement. Here, we review the development of innervation of the mouse organ of Corti and its regulation . [more]

Closed-Loop Measurements of Iso-Response Stimuli Reveal Dynamic Nonlinear Stimulus Integration in the Retina.
Daniel Bölinger, Tim Gollisch

Neurons often integrate information from multiple parallel signaling streams. How a neuron combines these inputs largely determines its computational role in signal processing. Experimental assessment of neuronal signal integration, however, is often confounded by cell-intrinsic nonlinear processes that arise after signal integration has taken place. To overcome this problem and determine how ganglion cells in the salamander retina integrate visual contrast over space, we used automated online analysis of recorded spike trains and closed-loop control of the visual stimuli to identify different stimulus patterns that give the same neuronal response. These iso-response stimuli revealed a threshold-quadratic transformation as a fundamental nonlinearity within the receptive field center. Moreover, for a subset of ganglion cells, the method revealed an additional dynamic nonlinearity that renders these cells particularly sensitive to spatially homogeneous stimuli. This function is shown to arise from a local inhibition-mediated dynamic gain control mechanism. [more]

Choosing Goals, Not Rules: Deciding among Rule-Based Action Plans.
Klaes C, Westendorff S, Chakrabarti S, Gail A.

In natural situations, movements are often directed toward locations different from that of the evoking sensory stimulus. Movement goals must then be inferred from the sensory cue based on rules. When there is uncertainty about the rule that applies for a given cue, planning a movement involves both choosing the relevant rule and computing the movement goal based on that rule. Under these conditions, it is not clear whether primates compute multiple movement goals based on all possible rules before choosing an action, or whether they first choose a rule and then only represent the movement goal associated with that rule. Supporting the former hypothesis, we show that neurons in the frontoparietal reach areas of monkeys simultaneously represent two different rule-based movement goals, which are biased by the monkeys' choice preferences. Apparently, primates choose between multiple behavioral options by weighing against each other the movement goals associated with each option. [more]

NompC TRP channel is essential for Drosophila sound receptor function.
Effertz T, Wiek R, Göpfert MC.

The idea that the NompC TRPN1 channel is the Drosophila transducer for hearing has been challenged by remnant sound-evoked nerve potentials in nompC nulls. We now report that NompC is essential for the function of Drosophila sound receptors and that the remnant nerve potentials of nompC mutants are contributed by gravity/wind receptor cells. Ablating the sound receptors reduces the amplitude and sensitivity of sound-evoked nerve responses, and the same effects ensued from mutations in nompC. Ablating the sound receptors also suffices to abolish mechanical amplification, which arises from active receptor motility, is linked to transduction, and also requires NompC. Calcium imaging shows that the remnant nerve potentials in nompC mutants are associated with the activity of gravity/wind receptors and that the sound receptors of the mutants fail to respond to sound. Hence, Drosophila sound receptors require NompC for mechanical signal detection and amplification, demonstrating the importance of this transient receptor potential channel for hearing and reviving the idea that the fly's auditory transducer might be NompC.
