Regulatory gene expression during the patterning of molluscan shells has only recently drawn the attention of scientists. We show that several Hox genes are expressed in association with the shell gland and the mantle in the marine vetigastropod Gibbula varia (L.). The expression of Gva-Hox1, Gva-Post2, and Gva-Post1 is initially detected in the trochophore larval stage in the area of the shell field during formation of embryonic shell. Later, during development, these genes are expressed in… Expand
A SoxC gene related to larval shell development and co-expression analysis of different shell formation genes in early larvae of oyster
TLDR
The gene encoded a SoxC homolog of the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas and was named cgi-soxc, which is hypothesized to be involved in periostracum biogenesis, biomineralization, and regulation of cell proliferation. Expand
Developmental role of dpp in the gastropod shell plate and co-option of the dpp signaling pathway in the evolution of the operculum.
TLDR
It is concluded that co-option of dpp to the posterior part of the foot contributed to the innovation of the operculum in gastropod molluscs. Expand
An ancient process in a modern mollusc: early development of the shell in Lymnaea stagnalis
TLDR
A detailed spatial and temporal map of cell movements and differentiation events during early shell development in L. stagnalis is provided to establish a platform for future work aimed at elucidation of the molecular mechanisms and regulatory networks that underlie the evo-devo of the molluscan shell. Expand
Expression of Hox genes during the larval development of the snail, Gibbula varia (L.)—further evidence of non-colinearity in molluscs
TLDR
The hypothesis that apical organ neurosensory cells contribute to the formation of cerebral ganglia commissures during metamorphosis is supported, supporting the ancestral role of Hox genes in the neurogenesis processes in bilaterians. Expand
Hox gene expression during the development of the phoronid Phoronopsis harmeri
TLDR
The lack of Hox gene expression during early development of P. harmeri indicates that the larval body develops without positional information of the Hox patterning system, which might be a consequence of the evolutionary intercalation of the larva form into an ancestral, direct life cycle of phoronids. Expand
Possible co-option of engrailed during brachiopod and mollusc shell development
TLDR
The results suggest that en and mpox are possibly involved in brachiopod embryonic shell development and the evolutionary developmental origin of lophotrochozoan biomineralization through independent gene co-option is discussed. Expand
Identification of three cell populations from the shell gland of a bivalve mollusc
TLDR
The results reveal the internal organization of the embryonic shell gland at the molecular level and add to the knowledge of larval shell formation. Expand
Non-collinear Hox gene expression in bivalves and the evolution of morphological novelties in mollusks
TLDR
The data support the notion that Hox gene expression has been coopted independently, and to varying degrees, into lineage-specific structures in the respective conchiferan clades. Expand
Hox and ParaHox gene expression in early body plan patterning of polyplacophoran mollusks
TLDR
In Polyplacophora, the expression patterns of the Hox and ParaHox genes seem to be evolutionarily highly conserved, while in conchiferan mollusks these genes are co‐opted into novel functions that might have led to evolutionary novelties, at least in gastropods and cephalopods. Expand
Hox gene expression in postmetamorphic juveniles of the brachiopod Terebratalia transversa
TLDR
The results are concordant with morphological observation that metamorphosis in rhynchonelliformean brachiopods, despite being rapid, is rather gradual and could be explained by the inversion of the mantle lobe, which relocates some of the more posterior larval structures into the anterior edge of the juveniles.

The expression of an engrailed protein during embryonic shell formation of the tusk‐shell, Antalis entalis (Mollusca, Scaphopoda)
TLDR
The single anlage of the scaphopod protoconch contradicts earlier hypotheses of a monophyletic taxon Diasoma (Scaphopoda + Bivalvia), which has been mainly based on the assumption of a primarily bilobed shell in both taxa. Expand
Characterisation of two snail genes in the gastropod mollusc Patella vulgata. Implications for understanding the ancestral function of the snail-related genes in Bilateria
TLDR
It is suggested that two new members of the snail gene family in the gastropod mollusc Patellavulgata could be involved in regulating epithelial-mesenchymal transitions (EMT) and cell motility, as has recently been demonstrated for snail genes in vertebrates. Expand
Expression of anterior Hox genes during larval development of the gastropod Haliotis asinina
TLDR
Molecular alignments and phylogenetic analysis indicate that the anterior Hox genes are homologues of Drosophila HOM‐C genes labial, proboscipedia, zen, Deformed, and Sex combs reduced, and expression maintained in ectodermal and neuroectodermal tissues. Expand
Expression of Patella vulgata orthologs of engrailed and dpp-BMP2/4 in adjacent domains during molluscan shell development suggests a conserved compartment boundary mechanism.
TLDR
It is concluded that engrailed and dpp are most likely involved in setting up a compartment boundary between these cells, very similar to the situation in, for example, the developing wing imaginal disc in Drosophila. Expand
Expression of a Scr/Hox5 gene in the larval central nervous system of the gastropod Haliotis, a non‐segmented spiralian lophotrochozoan
TLDR
The expression of Hru‐Hox5 in the central region of the abalone CNS is similar to that observed for its orthologue (Lox20 ) in the leech, suggesting that Hox5 genes were used to pattern the CNS of the ancestral spiralian lophotrochozoan. Expand
Expression patterns of engrailed and dpp in the gastropod Lymnaea stagnalis
TLDR
The results suggested that dpp-BMP2/4 has a role in the shell formation, rather than in the regional specification and that it could be involved in the specification pathway of the left–right asymmetry of the developing shell in L. stagnalis. Expand
Molluscan engrailed expression, serial organization, and shell evolution
TLDR
In situ hybridization and antibody studies show iterated engrailed‐gene expression in transverse rows of ectodermal cells bounding plate field development and spicule formation in the chiton, Lepidochitona caverna, as well as in cells surrounding the valves and in the early development of the shell hinge in the clam, Transennella tantilla.

Engrailed in cephalopods: a key gene related to the emergence of morphological novelties
TLDR
An engrailed cognate is identified in the squid Loligo, which provides new evidence that engrailing in molluscs is not restricted to a ‘shell function’ and has been recruited in the mollusc lineage for the emergence of morphological novelties in cephalopods. Expand
Cephalopod Hox genes and the origin of morphological novelties
TLDR
Developmental expression patterns for eight out of nine Hox genes in the Hawaiian bobtail squid Euprymna scolopes are examined by whole-mount in situ hybridization, showing that Hox orthologues have been recruited multiple times and in many ways in the origin of new cephalopod structures. Expand
Shell differentiation and engrailed expression in the Ilyanassa embryo
TLDR
In situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry is used to study the expression of the engrailed-related gene, Ily-en in embryos of the marine mud snail Ilyanassa obsoleta to find that Ily- en is only expressed in shell gland cells. Expand
