Regulatory RNA at the root of animals: dynamic expression of developmental lincRNAs in the calcisponge Sycon ciliatum
(The Royal Society Publishing, 2015-12-23)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play important regulatory roles during animal development, and it has been hypothesized that an RNA-based gene regulation was important for the evolution of developmental complexity in ...
Calcareous sponge genomes reveal complex evolution of α-carbonic anhydrases and two key biomineralization enzymes
(BioMed Central, 2014-11-25)
Background: Calcium carbonate biominerals form often complex and beautiful skeletal elements, including coral exoskeletons and mollusc shells. Although the ability to generate these carbonate structures was apparently ...
