Surveys of Gene Families Using Polymerase Chain Reaction: PCR Selection and PCR Drift
with the potential to be phylogenetically informative (e.g., sequence variation, vari? ation within gene clusters, and number of gene clusters [Koop et al., 1989; Bartels et al., 1993; Cartwright etExpand

Intertidal Bryozoa (Cheilostomata) of Ketchikan, Alaska
Assemblages of intertidal bryozoans are proving to be more species‐rich than generally previously appreciated. This study found 31 species of cheilostome bryozoans at three rocky‐intertidal sites atExpand

Homeoboxes in cnidarians.
Homeoboxes have previously been documented from various phyla of triploblastic, coelomate and pseudocoelomate, animals. We report here the first homeoboxes from cnidarians, a phylum of diploblasticExpand

Epibionts of the Tanner Crab Chionoecetes Bairdi in the Region of Kodiak Island, Alaska
ABSTRACT We examined the epibionts on 98 legal male Tanner crabs (Chionoecetes bairdi) of varying, known shell ages, which were tagged in the region of Kodiak Island, Alaska, and recovered in theExpand

Two Kinorhynch Species (Cyclorhagida, Echinoderidae, Echinoderes) Show Different Distribution Patterns Across Tsugaru Strait, Northern Japan
We investigated the geographic population structures of two intertidal kinorhynch species, Echinoderes sensibilis and Echinoderes sp. A, in the vicinity of Tsugaru Strait between Honshu and HokkaidoExpand

Membrane depolarization mediates phosphorylation and nuclear translocation of CREB in vascular smooth muscle cells.
Diverse signals have the potential to modulate gene transcription through the Ca2+ and cAMP response element binding protein (CREB) in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). A key step in theExpand

Over one-half billion years of head conservation? Expression of an ems class gene in Hydractinia symbiolongicarpus (Cnidaria: Hydrozoa).
We report the isolation of an empty spiracles class homeodomain-containing gene, Cn-ems, from the hydrozoan Hydractinia symbiolongicarpus, the first gene of this class characterized in a lowerExpand
