Mesodermal gene expression during the embryonic and larval development of the articulate brachiopod Terebratalia transversa
(BioMed Central, 2015-04-11)
Background: Brachiopods undergo radial cleavage, which is distinct from the stereotyped development of closely related spiralian taxa. The mesoderm has been inferred to derive from the archenteron walls following gastrulation, ...
Embryonic chirality and the evolution of spiralian left - right asymmetries
(The Royal Society Publishing, 2016-12)
The group Spiralia includes species with one of the most significant cases of left–right asymmetries in animals: the coiling of the shell of gastropod molluscs (snails). In this animal group, an early event of embryonic ...
