A major evolutionary divide occurs in the animal kingdom between the so-called radially symmetric animals, which includes the cnidarians, and the bilaterally symmetric animals, which includes all worm phyla. Buddenbrockia plumatellae is an active, muscular, parasitic worm that belongs to the phylum Myxozoa, a group of morphologically simplified microscopic endoparasites that has proved difficult to place phylogenetically. Phylogenetic analyses of multiple protein-coding genes demonstrate that… Expand
Cytomorphological peculiarities of Polypodium hydriforme (Cnidaria)
  • E. Raikova
  • Biology
  • Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom
  • 2008
TLDR
The combination of characters displayed by P. hydriforme suggests that this animal is not an aberrant cnidarian, as it was formerly believed, but a relic of a major cNidarian group (class Polypodiozoa) that has undergone reduction due to adaptation to parasitism. Expand
BASAL METAZOANS
Basal metazoans comprise the four non-bilaterian animal phyla Porifera (sponges), Cnidaria (anthozoans and jellyfishes), Placozoa (Trichoplax) and Ctenophora (comb jellies). The phylogenetic positionExpand
Myxozoans: Ancient metazoan parasites find a home in phylum Cnidaria.
TLDR
The ability of myxozoans to infect freshwater, marine and terrestrial hosts implies that Cnidaria are no longer constrained to the aquatic environment. Expand

Cnidarian phylogenetic relationships as revealed by mitogenomics
TLDR
These analyses suggest that the shared morphological characters in these groups are plesiomorphies, originated in the branch leading to Medusozoa, and the hypothesis that Staurozoa is the sister group to all the other medusozoans is rejected. Expand
Phylogenetic placement of the enigmatic parasite, Polypodium hydriforme, within the Phylum Cnidaria
TLDR
Evidence is provided that Polypodium is indeed a cnidarian and is either the sister taxon to Hydrozoa, or part of the hydrozoan clade, Leptothecata, and previously conflicting hypotheses concerning the phylogenetic placement ofPolypodium can be reconciled. Expand
A new model for myxosporean (Myxozoa) development explains the endogenous budding phenomenon, the nature of cell within cell life stages and evolution of parasitism from a cnidarian ancestor.
  • D. Morris
  • Biology, Medicine
  • International journal for parasitology
  • 2012
TLDR
The nurse cell/oocyte model explains previously conflicting evidence in the literature regarding myxosporean biology, and aligns phenomena considered distinctive to the Myxozoa, such as endogenous budding and cell within cell development, with processes recorded in cnidarians. Expand
How Cnidaria Got Its Cnidocysts
TLDR
The two-part hypothetical pathway links the origins of tissues through an early amalgamation of amoebic and epithelial cells to and the later introduction of an extrusion apparatus from bacterial parasites to the Cnidarian germ line. Expand
Cell formation by myxozoan species is not explained by dogma
  • D. Morris
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
  • 2010
TLDR
An ultrastructural study is conducted to examine how internal cells are formed by a myxosporean parasitizing an annelid, and finds that actinospore parasite stages clearly internalized existing cells; a process with analogies to the acquisition of endosymbiotic algae by cnidarian species. Expand

Solution to the phylogenetic enigma of Tetraplatia, a worm-shaped cnidarian
TLDR
Data presented here from the large and small subunits of the nuclear ribosome leave little doubt that Tetraplatia is in fact a hydrozoan genus, and its precise phylogenetic position is within Narcomedusae, as some authors had previously deduced based on structural characters. Expand
Origins of Bilateral Symmetry: Hox and Dpp Expression in a Sea Anemone
TLDR
It is shown that Nematostella uses homologous genes to achieve bilateral symmetry: Multiple Hox genes are expressed in a staggered fashion along its primary body axis, and the transforming growth factor–β gene decapentaplegic is expressed in an asymmetric fashion about its secondary body axis. Expand
Orphan worm finds a home: Buddenbrockia is a myxozoan.
TLDR
It is concluded that Buddenbrockia is a myxozoan, a contention also made recently from ultrastructural studies (Okamura et al. 2002). Expand
The demise of a phylum of protists: phylogeny of Myxozoa and other parasitic cnidaria.
TLDR
Reassessment of myxozoans as metazoans reveals terminal differentiation, typical metazoan cellular junctions, and collagen production, and it is recommended that the group as a whole be removed from all protistan classifications and placed in a more comprehensive cnidarian system. Expand
Molecular evidence that the myxozoan protists are metazoans.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of 18S ribosomal RNA sequences from Myxozoa and other eukaryotes support the hypothesis that myxozoans are closely related to the bilateral animals and suggest that the MyXozoa should be considered a metazoan phylum. Expand
Biodiversity and evolution of the Myxozoa.
TLDR
A theory of the evolution of their digenetic life cycles is proposed, with the invertebrate as primary host and secondary acquisition of the vertebrate host serving for asexual population increase. Expand
A triploblast origin for Myxozoa?
TLDR
The presence of Hox class genes that are typical of triploblasts in Myxozoa is reported, which confirms MyXozoa's phylogenetic affinity with the Bilateria and reveals an extreme example of parasitic degeneracy. Expand
Myxozoa, Polypodium, and the origin of the Bilateria: the phylogenetic position of "Endocnidozoa" in light of the rediscovery of Buddenbrockia.
TLDR
Two conflicting hypotheses concerning the position of the Myxozoa within Metazoa have so far been formulated, one treating the MyXozoa as modified cnidarians and the other placing them within bilaterians. Expand
Ultrastructure of Buddenbrockia identifies it as a myxozoan and verifies the bilaterian origin of the Myxozoa
TLDR
The ultrastructural study has established the triploblastic organization of Buddenbrockia by confirmation of the presence of an inner layer of cells and 4 sets of longitudinal muscles, and simultaneously revealed that Budden Brockia is a myxozoan and that the myxozoans are derived from bilaterians.

Mesodermal anatomies in cnidarian polyps and medusae.

  • 2006
TLDR
A hypothesis disputing the diploblast classification of cnidarians is presented without providing further explanations for the apparent diploblasty of the polyp stage and the formation of the subepidermal striated muscle in those Medusozoa lacking the entocodon nodule. Expand
