Cell cultures from reef-building scleractinian corals are being developed to study the response of these ecologically important organisms to environmental stress and diseases. Despite the importance of cell division to support propagation, cell proliferation in polyps and in vitro is under-investigated. In this study, suspended multicellular aggregates(More)
In scleractinian reef-building corals, patterns of cell self-renewal, migration and death remain virtually unknown, limiting our understanding of cellular mechanisms underlying initiation of calcification, and ontogenesis of the endosymbiotic dinoflagellate relationship. In this study, we pulse-labelled the coral Stylophora pistillata for 24 h with BrdU at(More)
