A cDNA clone for a starfish T-box gene (Ap-Tbr) was isolated and characterized. Molecular phylogenetic analysis showed that the Ap-Tbr gene was a member of the T-brain subfamily, which includes mouse T-brain-1 and Xenopus Eomesodermin. Ap-Tbr was expressed as early as in late blastulae, and the transcript was evident in a disc-like region at the vegetal end or the vegetal plate. In early gastrulae, the gene was expressed in the cells of the invaginated archenteron, from which the majority of… CONTINUE READING
