Evolution of vertebrate interferon inducible transmembrane proteins
TLDR
This study characterised IFITMs in two distantly related marsupial species, the Australian tammar wallaby and the South American grey short-tailed opossum, and analysed the phylogeny of the IFITM family in vertebrates. Expand
DDX4 (VASA) Is Conserved in Germ Cell Development in Marsupials and Monotremes1
TLDR
Data suggest that DDX4 is essential for the regulation of germ cell proliferation and differentiation across all three extant mammalian groups—eutherians, marsupials, and monotremes. Expand
Genome sequence of an Australian kangaroo, Macropus eugenii, provides insight into the evolution of mammalian reproduction and development
TLDR
The genome sequence of the tammar wallaby, Macropus eugenii, is presented, which is a member of the kangaroo family and the first representative of the iconic hopping mammals that symbolize Australia to be sequenced, to provide new insight into marsupial and mammalian biology and genome evolution. Expand
A staging scheme for assessing development in vitro of organogenesis stage embryos of the stripe-faced dunnart, Sminthopsis macroura (Marsupialia: dasyuridae).
TLDR
The results of the present study indicate that with some optimization of the culture conditions, it might be possible for organogenesis stage S. macroura embryos to be grown to term in vitro. Expand
Expression of STRA8 is conserved in therian mammals but expression of CYP26B1 differs between marsupials and mice
TLDR
It is concluded that retinoic acid and STRA8 are conserved factors that control the initiation of meiosis amongst mammals but the role of CYP26B1 as a meiosis-inhibiting factor may be specific to rodents. Expand
Induced ovulation, mating success and embryonic development in the stripe-faced dunnart, Sminthopsis macroura.
TLDR
The main benefits of the treatment were that normal embryos resulted and that 70-78% of non-cyclic animals could be induced to ovulate. Expand
Genome sequence of an Australian kangaroo, Macropus eugenii, provides insight into the evolution of mammalian reproduction and development
TLDR
The genome sequence of the tammar wallaby, Macropus eugenii, is presented, which is a member of the kangaroo family and the first representative of the iconic hopping mammals that symbolize Australia to be sequenced, to enhance understanding of marsupial gene evolution and provide new insight into mammalian reproduction, development and genome evolution. Expand
Early Cell Lineages in Marsupial Embryos
TLDR
The progressive separations of the early Marsupial cell lineages show evidence of marsupial evolutionary history and a limited amount of evidence suggests that pluriblast and epiblast cells are pluripotential at least. Expand
The tammar wallaby, Macropus eugenii: a model kangaroo for the study of developmental and reproductive biology.
Cold Spring Harb Protoc Danielle Hickford, Stephen Frankenberg and Marilyn B. Renfree Study of Developmental and Reproductive Biology : A Model Kangaroo for the Macropus eugenii The Tammar Wallaby,Expand
