We have cloned genes related to hairy and Enhancer of split (hes) from glossiphoniid leeches, Helobdella robusta and Theromyzon rude. In leech, segments arise sequentially in anteroposterior progression from a posterior growth zone that consists of five bilaterally paired embryonic stem cells called teloblasts. Each teloblast gives rise to segmental founder cells (primary blast cells) that contribute iterated sets of definitive progeny in each segment. Thus, in leech, the "segmentation clock… CONTINUE READING
