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 ...
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 ...
