  • Six/sine oculis (Six/so) class genes, with representatives in vertebrates and invertebrates, include members with key developmental roles in the anterior part of the central nervous system (CNS) and eye. Having characterized the role of the first planarian gene of the Six/so family in eye development, we attempted to identify novel genes of this family related to the platyhelminth eye genetic network. We isolated a new Six/so gene in the planarian Girardia tigrina, Gtsix-3, which belongs to the… CONTINUE READING
