To clarify the relationship between axial patterning in cnidarians and bilaterians, we have investigated the embryonic development of the hydrozoan Podocoryne carnea. The expression of Hox-like homeobox genes was analyzed by RT-PCR and in situ hybridization. Cnox1-Pc, an anterior Hox gene, is a maternal message. It is present throughout larval development, first weakly in all blastomeres and later restricted mostly to the anterior pole of the planula. Gsx, an anterior ParaHox gene, is first… CONTINUE READING
