Developmental expression of “germline”- and “sex determination”-related genes in the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi (BioMed Central, 2016-08-02)Background: An essential developmental pathway in sexually reproducing animals is the specification of germ cells and the differentiation of mature gametes, sperm and oocytes. The “germline” genes vasa, nanos ...Journal article
MicroRNAs and essential components of the microRNA processing machinery are not encoded in the genome of the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi (BioMed Central, 2012-12-20)Background: MicroRNAs play a vital role in the regulation of gene expression and have been identified in every animal with a sequenced genome examined thus far, except for the placozoan Trichoplax. The genomic repertoires ...Journal article
