As a result of 3 proposed rounds of whole-genome duplication—2 in early vertebrate ancestors and 1 in early teleosts—teleost fish (including pufferfishes) possess a family of 8 voltage-gated sodium channels (Novak et al. However, such single-gene studies are incomplete because in vertebrate animals, neurotoxin resistance (i. 2005) and in pufferfishes that also sequester exceedingly high concentrations of TTX in their tissues (Yotsu-Yamashita et al. 2000; Venkatesh et al. However, to date only 2 of these channels (teleost Nav1. 2006), each of which has its own profile of expression in skeletal muscle, the heart, or the nervous system. Recently, one TTX-resistant sodium channel has been described in some populations of the garter snake Thamnophis sirtalis that preys on the TTX-sequestering newt Taricha granulosa (Geffeney et al. , survival) cannot be achieved by evolution of a single channel alone; adaptation likely requires parallel evolution of all the paralogs in the encoding gene family. 2000; Venkatesh et al. 4b, both expressed in skeletal muscle) have been shown to be TTX/STX resistant in pufferfishes (Yotsu-Yamashita et al.

This study presents an example of natural selection acting upon a complete gene family, repeatedly arriving at a diverse but limited number of adaptive changes within the same genome. In families of genes with similar or related functions, adaptation to a strong selective agent should involve multiple adaptive changes across the entire gene family. Here, we show how 4 taxonomically diverse species of pufferfishes (Tetraodontidae) each evolved resistance to the guanidinium toxins tetrodotoxin (TTX) and saxitoxin (STX) via parallel amino acid replacements across all 8 sodium channels present in teleost fish genomes. Approximately 75% of vertebrate proteins belong to protein families encoded by multiple evolutionarily related genes, a pattern that emerged as a result of gene and genome duplications over the course of vertebrate evolution. Using site-directed mutagenesis and expression of a vertebrate sodium channel, we also demonstrate that resistance to TTX/STX is enhanced up to 15-fold by single, frequently observed replacements at 2 sites that have not previously been implicated in toxin binding but show similar or identical replacements in pufferfishes and in distantly related vertebrate and nonvertebrate animals. To be maximally informative, we suggest that future studies of molecular adaptation should consider all functionally similar paralogs of the affected gene family. However, we know of no evolutionary studies that have explicitly addressed this point. This resulted in diverse suites of coexisting sodium channel types that all confer varying degrees of toxin resistance, yet show remarkable convergence among genes and phylogenetically diverse species.

Because the different phylogenies of fish and mammalian sodium channel genes both show that this Domain II Thr changes only after previous fixation of the Domain I aromatic-to-nonaromatic mutation, it is possible that the Domain II replacement may be selected for in both pufferfishes and mammals to offset or compensate for changes in normal channel performance caused by the Domain I replacement. 4b from Tetraodon (shown in purple, also observed in the soft-shelled clam M. Intriguingly, we found this same Domain II replacement (Thr-to-Asn) in 2 TTX-resistant channels expressed in the nervous system of mammals: Nav1. 001, using concentrated changes, Maddison 1990). Arenaria) that confers a 3,000-fold resistance in TTX binding (Bricelj et al. 9, which also have the aforementioned nonaromatic replacement in Domain I (shared with the closely related Nav1. (2003) showed that other mutations at this Thr (to Ile, Asp, or Lys) can increase TTX resistance up to 2,000-fold. How the Domain II Thr-to-Ser or Asn replacements we observe affect toxin binding is unknown, but our phylogeny clearly shows that this particular replacement is only seen in genes that already possess earlier (evolutionarily older) replacements in Domain I (probability of observing this phylogenetic association on our tree at random, P

PCR primers and reaction parameters were optimized for each gene and species. Reverse transcription was performed with either the random primers or the 3′ reverse primer of the subsequent polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Inserts were sequenced in both directions with an ABI 3100 sequencer (Applied Biosystems, Foster City, CA), and additional rounds of PCR were performed with both specific and degenerate primers to extend products in both directions until all 4 channel domains were sequenced. Resultant contiguous sequences were up to 5,000+ bases in length.

Because approximately 75% of vertebrate genes are nonunique members of multigene families (Duret et al. Based on our results, we predict that similar patterns of parallel evolution will be observed in other vertebrate gene families subjected to strong natural selection, and we propose that future studies in molecular adaptation will be most informative when they examine all functionally similar paralogs of the affected gene family. 1994), whole-organism adaptation in vertebrates may often (if not usually) involve parallel evolution across entire gene families. The massive scale of parallel evolution we observe across many Na+ channel genes and distantly related species presents a remarkable example of natural selection repeatedly arriving at a diverse but limited number of adaptive solutions to the same selective agent.

For each pore-region change we examined, the functional effects on sodium channel physiology were studied empirically using site-directed mutagenesis and toxin-binding experiments (dose–response voltage clamp). Of all the tetraodontiform fishes, the tetraodontidae are the most toxic and the most TTX resistant (Kidokoro et al. 2004; Jang and Yotsu-Yamashita 2006) via pore-region amino acid replacements in the whole complement of sodium channel paralogs present in their genomes. By analyzing sodium channel genes of multiple species of pufferfishes, we also ask whether amino acid replacements conferring resistance to guanidinium toxins occurred early (preceding the radiation of Tetraodontidae) or evolved in parallel. The voltage-gated sodium channel is comprised of 4 transmembrane subunits (Domains I, II, III, and IV) that fold together to form an ion-permeable pore (fig. 2004; Tanu et al. Protein modeling and site-directed mutagenesis experiments have demonstrated that TTX and STX bind directly to highly conserved residues in the pore region and that pore-region mutations are particularly likely to affect sensitivity to these toxins (Terlau et al. 1974); thus, we wished to test the prediction that all or most of the sodium channels in pufferfish genomes should differ from their orthologs in nontoxic teleosts. Here, we address how pufferfishes evolved genetic resistance to TTX and/or STX (Nakashima et al.

Site-directed mutagenesis was performed using the Quikchange Site-Directed Mutagenesis Kit (Stratagene, Cedar Creek, TX), according to the manufacturer’s protocols. The μ1-pAlterXG vector was linearized by SalI digestion and transcribed with SP6 DNA-dependent RNA polymerase using reagents from Ambion. Mutagenic oligonucleotide primers included changes to result in the desired amino acid mutation and an additional change to introduce silent restriction sites that did not alter the coding sequence but allowed rapid identification of mutant cDNA.
