Basiepidermal nervous system in Nemertoderma westbladi (Nemertodermatida): GYIRFamide immunoreactivity.
The Nemertodermatida are a small group of microscopic marine worms. Recent molecular studies have demonstrated that they are likely to be the earliest extant bilaterian animals. What was the nervousExpand

A commissural brain! The pattern of 5-HT immunoreactivity in Acoela (Plathelminthes)
Abstract In order to solve the question whether Plathelminthes belonging to the taxon Acoela have a brain and an orthogon of the common flatworm type, an immunocytochemical study of the pattern ofExpand

Rotifer muscles as revealed by phalloidin‐TRITC staining and confocal scanning laser microscopy
By combining phalloidin-TRITC staining with confocal scanning laser microscopy (CSLM), the pattern of the musculature in two species of Rotifera, Euchlanis dilatata unisetata and BrachionusExpand

The brain of the Nemertodermatida (Platyhelminthes) as revealed by anti-5HT and anti-FMRFamide immunostainings.
The taxa Nemertodermatida and Acoela have traditionally been considered closely related and classified as sister groups within the Acoelomorpha Ehlers 1984 (Platyhelminthes). Recent molecularExpand

Rotifer nervous system visualized by FMRFamide and 5-HT immunocytochemistry and confocal laser scanning microscopy
We present the first results of immunocytochemical (ICC) observations on serotonin (5-HT) and FMRFamide (Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-NH2) immunoreactivity patterns in the rotifer nervous system investigatedExpand

Organisation of the nervous system in the Acoela: an immunocytochemical study.
In order to broaden the information about the organisation of the nervous system in taxon Acoela, an immunocytochemical study of an undetermined Acoela from Cape Kartesh, Faerlea glomerata, AvaginaExpand

An immunocytochemical and ultrastructural study of the nervous and muscular systems of Xenoturbella westbladi (Bilateria inc. sed.)
Abstract The phylogenetic position of the Xenoturbellida is highly disputed. Are they primitive flatworms? Are they related to Deuterostomia? Do they form a sister taxon to other Bilateria? Are theyExpand

Cleavage in Nemertoderma westbladi (Nemertodermatida) and its phylogenetic significance
Recent phylogenetic analyses of ribosomal and protein coding nuclear genes place the marine worms within the Nemertodermatida as one of the oldest lineages among the bilaterian animals. We studiedExpand
