The dicyemid mesozoans are obligate parasites that inhabit the cephalopod renal appendage. Dicyemids have a simple body, consisting of approximately 30 cells: one long cylindrical axial cell contains intracellular stem cells (called axoblast), from which embryos are derived, and is surrounded by some 30 peripheral somatic cells. Somatic cells divide at most eight times in their life span, and never divide after differentiation. During early somatic cell development, numerous unique DNA… Expand
