Retinoic acid is known to induce vertebrate stem cells to differentiate into a variety of cell types, including neurons. Although retinoic acid was reported to affect morphogenetic pattern specification in the hydrozoan Hydractinia (Müller, W.A., 1984. Retinoids and pattern formation in a hydroid. J. Embryol. Exp. Morph. 81, 253-271) and a retinoid RXR receptor was cloned in the jellyfish Tripedalia (Kostrouch, Z., Kostrouchova, M., Love, W., Jannini, E., Piatigorsky, J., Rall, J.E., 1998… CONTINUE READING
