Recent studies on the differentiation of the body wall musculature in a medicinal leech and in the free-living plathelminth Macrostomum hystricinum marinum, Beklemischev 1950 provide the first evidence of a complex developmental signalling pattern, possibly involving stem cells and the nervous system, in the organization of the muscle grid formed by developing myocytes. To enhance further our understanding of the ontogenetic and phylogenetic origin of such muscle grids, which consist of… CONTINUE READING
