SUMMARY Whether the serial features found in some molluscs are ancestral or derived is considered controversial. Here, 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. Ectodermal expression of engrailed is… Expand
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
Expression of segment polarity genes in brachiopods supports a non-segmental ancestral role of engrailed for bilaterians
TLDR
Findings suggest that bilaterians might share an ancestral, non-segmental domain of engrailed expression during early embryogenesis, and suggest the role of “segmentation genes” in organisms that lack a segmented body. Expand
Arthropod-like Expression Patterns of engrailed and wingless in the Annelid Platynereis dumerilii Suggest a Role in Segment Formation
TLDR
The expression patterns of genes orthologous to the arthropod segmentation genes engrailed and wingless in the annelid Platynereis dumerilii are reported as molecular evidence of a segmented ancestor of protostomes. Expand
A novel role for dpp in the shaping of bivalve shells revealed in a conserved molluscan developmental program.
TLDR
The cell cleavage and expression patterns of three genes, brachyury, engrailed, and dpp, in the Japanese spiny oyster Saccostrea kegaki are described and the function of dpp in this species is examined to elucidate the molecular developmental basis underlying this prominent morphological transition. Expand
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
Ancestral Patterning of Tergite Formation in a Centipede Suggests Derived Mode of Trunk Segmentation in Trilobites
TLDR
The centipede Strigamia maritima is utilized to study the correspondence between the expression of engrailed during late embryonic to postembryonic stages, and the development of the dorsal exoskeletal plates, and it is suggested that this association represents a symplesiomorphy within Euarthropoda. Expand
Dynamic expression of ancient and novel molluscan shell genes during ecological transitions
TLDR
These expression data reflect the regulatory complexity that underlies molluscan shell construction from larval stages to adulthood, and serves to highlight the different ecological demands placed on each stage. 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
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
MICROMORPHOLOGY AND GENE EXPRESSION IN MUSCLE AND SHELL DEVELOPMENT OF THE MOLLUSCA
TLDR
This work comprises detailed studies by scanning electron microscope, fluorescence staining combined with confocal laser scanning microscopy, as well as serial sectioning analyses and reconstruction techniques to elucidate the development of the larval and adult musculature of several basal representatives of the molluscan classes Polyplacophora, Bivalvia, Scaphopoda, and Gastropoda.

Expression of engrailed proteins in arthropods, annelids, and chordates.
TLDR
A monoclonal antibody is described that recognizes a conserved epitope in the homeodomain of engrailed proteins of a number of different arthropods, annelids, and chordates; this antibody is used to isolate the grasshopperEngrailed gene, a homeobox gene that has an important role in Drosophila segmentation.

Radical alterations in the roles of homeobox genes during echinoderm evolution
TLDR
The expression domains in echinoderms of three important developmental regulatory genes ( distal-less, engrailed and orthodenticle ), all of which encode transcription factors that contain a homeodomain are reported, demonstrating the evolutionary lability of regulatory genes that are widely viewed as conservative.

Sequence and embryonic expression of the amphioxus engrailed gene (AmphiEn): the metameric pattern of transcription resembles that of its segment-polarity homolog in Drosophila.
TLDR
The segmental expression of AmphiEn in forming somites suggests that the functions of engrailed homologs in establishing and maintaining a metameric body plan may have arisen only once during animal evolution. Expand
Expression of engrailed during segmentation in grasshopper and crayfish.
TLDR
A monoclonal antibody that recognizes engrailed proteins is used to compare the process of segmentation in grasshopper, crayfish, and Drosophila to call into question what role homologues of the Drosophile pair-rule segmentation genes might play in other arthropods that generate metameres sequentially.

SUMMARY Even though echinoderms are members of the Bilateria, the location of their anterior/posterior axis has remained enigmatic. Here we propose a novel solution to the problem employing threeExpand
Engrailed Expression during Development of a Lamprey, Lampetra japonica: A Possible Clue to Homologies between Agnathan and Gnathostome Muscles of the Mandibular Arch
TLDR
It is suggested that the velothyroideus muscles of lampreys may be homologous to certain jaw muscles of teleosts–namely, the levator arcus palatini and the dilator operculi, which express en continuously while differentiating from the myogenic mesoderm into identifiable muscle types. 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

An engrailed-class (en-class) gene is identified and the distribution pattern of its protein during embryogenesis in a member of the Onychophora is determined. Expand
Homologues of the engrailed gene from five molluscan classes
TLDR
Nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequence comparisons reflect evolutionary conservation within helices of the en homeodomain and ancient divergences in the region 3′ to the homeodOMain. Expand

Based on recent fine‐structure work the evolutionary history of the Mollusca is reconsidered and some alternative ideas are presented to explain the origin of the mantle cavity, ctenidia, coelom, and pecularities of the alimentary tract. Expand
