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 ...
Molecular regionalization in the compact brain of the meiofaunal annelid Dinophilus gyrociliatus (Dinophilidae)
(BioMed Central, 2016-08-30)
Background: Annelida is a morphologically diverse animal group that exhibits a remarkable variety in nervous system architecture (e.g., number and location of longitudinal cords, architecture of the brain). Despite this ...
Cleavage modification did not alter blastomere fates during bryozoan evolution
(BioMed Central, 2017-04-28)
Background: Stereotypic cleavage patterns play a crucial role in cell fate determination by precisely positioning early embryonic blastomeres. Although misplaced cell divisions can alter blastomere fates and cause embryonic ...
