Posterior eyespots in larval chitons have a molecular identity similar to anterior cerebral eyes in other bilaterians
(BioMed Central, 2015-12-22)
Background: Development of cerebral eyes is generally based on fine-tuned networks and closely intertwined with the formation of brain and head. Consistently and best studied in insects and vertebrates, many signaling ...
Evolution and development of the adelphophagic, intracapsular Schmidt's larva of the nemertean Lineus ruber
(BioMed Central, 2015-09-28)
Background: The life cycle of many animals includes a larval stage, which has diversified into an astonishing variety of ecological strategies. The Nemertea is a group of spiralians that exhibits a broad diversity of larval ...
Ancora: a web resource for exploring highly conserved noncoding elements and their association with developmental regulatory genes
(BioMed Central, 2008-02-12)
Metazoan genomes contain arrays of highly conserved noncoding elements (HCNEs) that span developmental regulatory genes and define regulatory domains. We describe Ancora http:// ancora.genereg.net, a web resource that ...
Development and juvenile anatomy of the nemertodermatid Meara stichopi (Bock) Westblad 1949 (Acoelomorpha)
(BioMed Central, 2014-07-07)
Introduction: Nemertodermatida is the sister group of the Acoela, which together form the Acoelomorpha, a taxon that comprises bilaterally symmetric, small aquatic worms. While there are several descriptions of the embryology ...
