Background Sea cucumbers (Holothuroidea; Echinodermata) have the capacity to regenerate lost tissues and organs. Although the histological and cytological aspects of intestine regeneration have been extensively studied, little is known of the genetic mechanisms involved. There has, however, been a renewed effort to develop a database of Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) in Apostichopus japonicus, an economically-important species that occurs in China. This is important for studies on genetic… Expand
RNA-seq dependent transcriptional analysis unveils gene expression profile in the intestine of sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus during aestivation.
TLDR
An overview of dynamic gene expression in torpor-arousal cycles during aestivation of A. japonicus is presented and a series of candidate genes and pathways for further research on the molecular mechanisms of aestivation are identified. Expand
Reference assembly and gene expression analysis of Apostichopus japonicus larval development
TLDR
The transcriptome of the holothurian Apostichopus japonicus was sequenced at four developmental stages—blastula, gastrula, auricularia, pentactula—on an Illumina sequencer to achieve the currently most complete transcriptome assembly for A. japonico with the best basic statistical parameters.

Genome-wide analysis of gene expression profile in the respiratory tree of sea cucumber (Apostichopus japonicus) in response to hypoxia conditions
TLDR
The DO-specific DEGs identified in this study of the respiratory tree are important targets for further research into the biochemical mechanisms involved in the response of the sea cucumber to changes in the DO concentration. Expand
Weighted gene co-expression network analysis reveals potential genes involved in early metamorphosis process in sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus.
TLDR
This work systematically examined the gene expression profiles of Japanese common sea cucumber for the first time by RNA sequencing across 16 developmental time points from fertilized egg to juvenile stage and identified 21 modules that may play key roles in the metamorphosis process. Expand
Comparative transcriptome analysis identifies genes associated with papilla development in the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus.
TLDR
Gene Ontology and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes analyses indicated that the DEGs were primarily enriched in ribosome synthesis, cell proliferation, tight junction formation, collagen fibrillogenesis, and neurogenesis. Expand
Transcriptomic analysis of early stages of intestinal regeneration in Holothuria glaberrima
TLDR
This study demonstrates the broad and diversified gene expression profile during the early stages of the process using the mesentery as the focal point of intestinal regeneration and establishes the genes that are the most important candidates in the cellular processes that underlie regenerative responses. Expand
Understanding regulation of microRNAs on intestine regeneration in the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus using high-throughput sequencing.
TLDR
High-throughput sequencing applied to investigate alterations of miRNA expression in regenerative intestine compared to normal intestine suggested that these miRNAs play important roles in specific cellular events (cell proliferation, migration, and apoptosis), metabolic regulation, and energy redistribution.

TLDR
This study demonstrates the broad and diversified gene expression profile during the early stages of the process using the mesentery as the focal point of intestinal regeneration and establishes the genes that are the most important candidates in the cellular processes that underlie regenerative responses.

Comparative transcriptome analysis of papilla and skin in the sea cucumber, Apostichopus japonicus
TLDR
Comparative transcriptome analysis of the papilla and skin from the sea cucumber in order to identify and characterize gene expression profiles by using RNA-Seq technology indicated that cell part, metabolic process and catalytic activity were the most abundant GO category in cell component, biological process and molecular funcation, respectively. Expand
Metabolic responses to intestine regeneration in sea cucumbers Apostichopus japonicus.
TLDR
Three important genes were differentially expressed to regulate the levels of betaine and N,N-dimethylglycine during intestine regeneration in sea cucumbers, providing an important basis for studying regenerative mechanisms and developing regenerative matrixes. Expand

Large scale gene expression profiling during intestine and body wall regeneration in the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus.
TLDR
Fourteen new candidate gene sequences, discovered for the first time in this study, will greatly enable future research - using the sea cucumber model - into the molecular mechanisms associated with intestine and body wall regeneration. Expand
Comparative analysis of genes expressed in regenerating intestine and non-eviscerated intestine of Apostichopus japonicus Selenka (Aspidochirotida: Stichopodidae) and cloning of ependymin gene
TLDR
The regeneration of the intestine of sea cucumber was studied by describing historically the changes that occurred during intestine regeneration on the fifth day after chemically-induced evisceration and revealed that the expression of the genes which might be involved in regeneration was enhanced to some extent after eviscership.

Transcriptome Sequencing and Characterization for the Sea Cucumber Apostichopus japonicus (Selenka, 1867)
TLDR
Pyrosequencing was proven to be efficient in rapidly identifying a large set of genes for the sea cucumber A. japonicus and identified candidate aestivation-related genes. Expand
Gene expression profiling of intestinal regeneration in the sea cucumber
TLDR
The expression profile of animals at three different intestinal regeneration stages (3, 7- and 14-days post evisceration) is compared against the profile from normal (uneviscerated) intestines to set the base for future studies into the molecular basis of intestinal regeneration. Expand
Distinct profiles of expressed sequence tags during intestinal regeneration in the sea cucumber Holothuria glaberrima.
TLDR
Findings strongly suggest that the gene expression profile varies among regeneration stages and provide evidence for the existence of differential gene expression. Expand
Ependymin, a gene involved in regeneration and neuroplasticity in vertebrates, is overexpressed during regeneration in the echinoderm Holothuria glaberrima.
TLDR
Conventional and real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCRs) show that the EpenHg gene is expressed in several echinoderm tissues, including esophagus, mesenteries, gonads, respiratory trees, hemal system, tentacles and body wall, and the ependymin product in the intestine is overexpressed during sea cucumber intestinal regeneration.

This study provides evidence that the process of new organ formation in holothurians can be described as an intermediate process showing characteristics of both epimorphic and morphallactic phenomena. Expand
