We performed immunofluorescence experiments using a rat polyclonal antibody on formaldehyde-fixed whole-mount embryos to characterize the expression of a putative leech Hox gene, Lox2, during embryonic development. The main goal was to determine whether the differentiation of subsets of FMRFamide-like immunoreactive (FLI) neurons coincide with the expression domain of Lox2. The earliest expression of Lox2 was detected in relatively large, prominent nuclei in the posterior region at embryonic… CONTINUE READING
