Development of the larval peptidergic system in the sea star Patiriella regularis and structure of the adult nervous system in Patiriella species were documented in an immunofluorescence investigation using antisera to the sea star neuropeptide GFNSALMFamide 1 (S1) and confocal microscopy. P. regularis has planktotrophic development through bipinnaria and brachiolaria larvae. In early bipinnaria, two groups of immunoreactive cells appeared on either side of the anterior region and proliferated… CONTINUE READING
