Characterization and expression of a sea star otx ortholog (Protxβ1/2) in the larva of Patiriella regularis.


A transcript of otx from the sea star Patiriella regularis (Protxβ1/2) was characterized and its expression in early bipinnaria larvae was documented by whole mount in situ hybridization (WMISH). The nucleotide sequence exhibited 94% identity with Amotxβ1/2 from the closely related species Patiria miniata. Protxβ1/2 was expressed strongly in the developing… (More)
