The larval and polyp stages of extant Cnidaria are bi-layered with an absence of mesoderm and its differentiation products. This anatomy originally prompted the diploblast classification of the… (More)
The close functional link of nerve and muscle cells in neuromuscular units has led to the hypothesis of a common evolutionary origin of both cell types. Jellyfish are well suited to evaluate this… (More)
The cellular and developmental analysis of evolutionary-conserved genes directing bilaterian mesodermal and myogenic cell fate previously identified the hydromedusan entocodon and its differentiation… (More)
In most animal phyla from insects to mammals, there is a clear division of somatic and germ line cells. This is however not the case in plants and some animal phyla including tunicates, flatworms and… (More)
Members of the CCAAT/enhancer binding protein (C/EBP) and the Maf protein subfamilies have been characterized in a variety of bilaterian organisms. This is the first report of C/EBP and MafL genes in… (More)
Recent studies with rat pups suggest that suckling and sleeping are coordinated through milk-related events in the gut. Our experiments revealed that suckling rats respond to milk in the upper… (More)
