This miRNA -based regulation was miR-980-specific, since overexpression of other miRNAs that are not predicted to target Rbfox1 (miR-966 and miR-278) did not result in the downregulation of the luciferase reporter containing Rbfox1 3′UTR (Fig.   1b, Supplementary Table  2). [score:9]
To identify predicted miR-980 targets in Drosophila, TargetScanFly Release 6.0 was used, and to identify miRNAs that putatively target human RBFOX family proteins, TargetScanHuman Release 7.0 was applied. [score:9]

[score:6]
d Nutritional stress (2-day) influences miR-980 and Rbfox1 expression in ovaries: miR-980 is significantly downregulated, while Rbfox1 is elevated. [score:6]
Since Rbfox1 levels globally influence RNA granule dynamics, we propose that the cell survival and differentiation defects observed as a result of Rbfox1 up- or down-regulation could be caused by Rbfox1 function as a liquid droplet-assembling LCD-containing protein Furthermore, Rbfox1 phase-separation and RNP granule formation is concentration dependent, since Rbfox1 aggregates more often under conditions that increase its cellular levels, such as miR-980 deficiency or stress, as well as Rbfox1 overexpression. [score:6]
We found the expression of both reporters to be substantially reduced upon miR-980 overexpression in S2R+ cells (Fig.   1b, Supplementary Table  2). [score:5]

Since miR-980 deficiency results in higher Rbfox1 levels, we analyzed the consequence of miR-980-insensitive Rbfox1 isoform upregulation in follicle cell clones upon stress. [score:4]
Among these, Rbfox1 ~50 kDa isoform was specifically upregulated upon miR-980 loss (Fig.   1e, Supplementary Figure  3A). [score:4]
At the same time, an Rbfox1 isoform that runs at ~110 kDa was upregulated in controls and miR-980 mutants only upon starvation, while ~60 kDa isoform levels did not show any significant fluctuations at different conditions and in the studied genotypes (Fig.   1e, Supplementary Figure  3A). [score:4]
Therefore, we wanted to address how important is the presence of alternative 3′UTRs, thus, targeting of Rbfox1 by miR-980, and what effect this regulation has on cellular status. [score:4]

miR-980 can target Rbfox1 cell-autonomously, since its clonal overexpression in the ovarian follicular epithelium resulted in the reduction of Rbfox1 protein levels compared to neighboring wild type cells (Supplementary Figure  3B,D). [score:4]
Upon stress, miR-980 levels are reduced, causing Rbfox1 upregulation and promoting cell survival. [score:4]
Rbfox1 upregulation in miR-980 mutants modifies nucleolar shape and size. [score:4]
Notably, we also found that only a part of Rbfox1 mRNA could be subjected to miR-980 -based regulation, since only a part of Rbfox1 transcripts have the extended 3′UTRs containing miR-980 target sites. [score:4]

To test if miR-980 targets Rbfox1 via the predicted miRNA binding sites, we cloned different Rbfox1 3′UTR regions containing miR-980 binding sites into luciferase reporters (P1 and P2, Supplementary Figure  2D). [score:3]

This association with the nucleolus and CBs becomes more pronounced under conditions that lead to increased Rbfox1 expression, such as miR-980 loss or starvation stress. [score:3]
Rbfox1 mRNA has the possibility of having alternative 3′UTRs – two short and two long 3′UTRs – and all three conserved miR-980 target sites are found only in the alternative extended 3′UTR (Supplementary Figure  2C, D). [score:3]
Moreover, miR-980 deficiency and Rbfox1 overexpression caused changes in nucleolar morphology, as higher percentages of nucleoli appeared to have an inkblot-like shape or to be more segregated and dispersed in mutants in comparison to controls (Fig.   5a, b). [score:3]

In particular, Rbfox1 isoforms that migrated at ~50 kDa, ~65 kDa, ~75 kDa, and ~120 kDa showed increased expression levels in miR-980 mutants in comparison to controls at normal conditions (Fig.   1e). [score:3]
Similarly, in the cytoplasm, the appearance of Rbfox1 -positive granules depends on both stress and miR-980 -based Rbfox1 regulation (Fig.   5e–g). [score:2]

[score:1]

Since upon stress or miR-980 loss, the levels of Rbfox1 generally increase, this, via LCD -mediated interactions, stimulates aggregation of other LCD-containing proteins that have specific functions in the nuclear and cytoplasmic liquid organelles. [score:1]
The Rbfox1 gene encodes different isoforms (Supplementary Figure  2A, B) that also differ by the 3′UTR choice, and only the extended 3′UTRs (medium and long) contain miR-980 binding sites (Supplementary Figure  2C, D). [score:1]
Therefore, turning miR-980 “on” in a timely fashion could potentially prevent toxic fiber formation. [score:1]
The amount of Rbfox1 -positive aggregates detected by the SDD-AGE was dependent on stress and miR-980 presence, since the increase in Rbfox1 aggregations was observed in starved control and in well-fed and starved miR-980 mutant ovaries in comparison to well-fed controls (Fig.   3b, experiment).

We chose to examine the effect of Syn1 reduction via RNAi (dsSyn1) on the levels of miR-252, miR-956 and miR-980, since in mammals it was found that α1/β1/β2-syntrophins bind to nNOS [27]. [score:1]

miRCURY LNA probes were purchased from Exiqon that are complementary to Drosophila miR-956 (product # 21431–15), miR-980 (product # 21455–15) and miR-252 (product # 21423–15). [score:1]
As can be seen in Figure  3d, miR-980 levels were also decreased due to hyperthermic stress. [score:1]
Dg mRNA levels were not altered in hypomorphic miR-980 mutants (Figure  5g), but miR-980 levels are not completely abolished. [score:1]
The timing of this inability to move coincided with the onset when miR-980 mutants started to die (Table  2). [score:1]
