Epi 1, a monoclonal antibody, was generated against an epidermal specific epithelial antigen; it does not stain neural epithelium. We have used Epi 1 as a marker to determine when the spatial patterns delineating neural from nonneural epithelium become established. We used ventral ectoderm in a sandwich assay to show that signals from the central blastopore(More)
Lzf1 and Lzf2 are leech zinc finger (Lzf) genes that are shown to be orthologues to the Drosophila gap gene hunchback (hb). Neither in situ hybridization nor RT-PCR detected Lzf1 transcripts in leech embryos or adults. Lzf2 expression was examined in leech embryos at various stages by in situ hybridization. Lzf2 is expressed continually throughout the early(More)
We are interested in identifying the regulatory genes involved in segmental pattern formation in annelids. The Drosophila segmentation gene hunchback (hb) is critical for the proper anteroposterior development of the fly embryo, but its function outside the diptera is currently unknown. Here, the protein expression pattern of Leech Zinc Finger II (LZF2), a(More)
We present a careful analysis of the point source detection limit of the AKARI All-Sky Survey in the WIDES 90 µm band near the North Ecliptic Pole (NEP). Timeline Analysis is used to detect IRAS sources and then a conversion factor is derived to transform the peak timeline signal to the interpolated 90 µm flux of a source. Combined with a robust noise(More)
