The genes otd/otx, six3, pax6 and engrailed are involved in eye patterning in many animals. Here, we describe the expression pattern of the homologs to otd/otx, six3, pax6 and engrailed in the developing Euperipatoides kanangrensis embryos. Special reference is given to the expression in the protocerebral/ocular region. E. kanangrensis otd is expressed in the posterior part of the protocerebral/ocular segment before, during and after eye invagination. E. kanangrensis otd is also expressed… Expand
Expression of six3 and otx in Solenogastres (Mollusca) supports an ancestral role in bilaterian anterior‐posterior axis patterning
TLDR
Comparative analysis of six3 and otx expression in bilaterian argues for an ancestral function in anterior‐posterior body axis patterning but, due to its presence in animals lacking a head and/or a brain, not necessarily for the presence of these morphological structures in the last common ancestor (LCA) of bilaterians. Expand
Functional role of pax6 in eye and central nervous system development in the annelid Capitella teleta
TLDR
Results from this study reveal an evolutionarily conserved role for pax6 in eye development, and in neural specification and development, taken together with studies from other species. Expand
The Pax6 genes eyeless and twin of eyeless are required for global patterning of the ocular segment in the Tribolium embryo.
TLDR
Evidence is presented that toy continues to be required for the development of the larval eyes after formation of the embryonic head lobes in cooperation with the eye developmental transcription factor dachshund (dac). Expand
Functional role of pax6 during eye and nervous system development in the annelid Capitella teleta.
TLDR
Investigation of the functional role of pax6 during development of the marine annelid Capitella teleta reveals an evolutionarily conserved role in eye and neural specification and development. Expand
Molecular characterization and embryonic origin of the eyes in the common house spider Parasteatoda tepidariorum
TLDR
This study of retinal determination genes in the common house spider P. tepidariorum represents the first comprehensive analysis of the well-known retinaldetermination genes in arthropods outside insects. 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
Embryonic expression patterns and phylogenetic analysis of panarthropod sox genes: insight into nervous system development, segmentation and gonadogenesis
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of panarthropod Sox genes is provided and the first comprehensive analysis of embryonic expression patterns in the flour beetle Tribolium castaneum (Hexapoda), the pill millipede Glomeris marginata (Myriapoda) and the velvet worm, Euperipatoides kanangrensis (Onychophora). Expand
The ‘Ventral Organs’ of Pycnogonida (Arthropoda) Are Neurogenic Niches of Late Embryonic and Post-Embryonic Nervous System Development
TLDR
The pycnogonid cluster-stream-systems show striking similarities to the life-long neurogenic system of decapod crustaceans, and due to their close vicinity to glomerulus-like neuropils, it is considered their possible involvement in post-embryonic (perhaps even adult) replenishment of olfactory neurons – as in decapods. Expand
Expression of NK genes that are not part of the NK cluster in the onychophoran Euperipatoides rowelli (Peripatopsidae)
TLDR
Comparison of expression data to those of other bilaterians revealed similar patterns of NK2.1, vax, BarH and Emx in various aspects of neural development, suggesting that the NKL genes might have been primarily involved in neural development in the last common ancestor of bilaterian or at least nephrozoans. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis and expression patterns of Pax genes in the onychophoran Euperipatoides rowelli reveal a novel bilaterian Pax subfamily
TLDR
It is suggested that the last common bilaterian ancestor possessed six rather than five Pax genes, which have been retained in the panarthropod lineage, and at least some Pax genes are expressed in the adult onychophoran head, although the corresponding functions remain to be clarified. Expand

The involvement of engrailed and wingless during segmentation in the onychophoran Euperipatoides kanangrensis (Peripatopsidae: Onychophora) (Reid 1996)
TLDR
Examination of expression during segmentation of orthologues of wingless (Wnt1) and engrailed, two genes that play a key role in defining segment boundaries in Drosophila and that appear to play a role in segmentation in many other arthropods are examined. Expand
Expression of otd orthologs in the amphipod crustacean, Parhyale hawaiensis
TLDR
The comparative analysis of otd reveals the divergence of gene expression and gene function associated with duplication of this important developmental gene in the amphipod crustacean, Parhyale hawaiensis. Expand
Development of pigment-cup eyes in the polychaete Platynereis dumerilii and evolutionary conservation of larval eyes in Bilateria.
TLDR
Analysis of expression of conserved eye specification genes in the early development of larval and adult pigment-cup eyes in Platynereis dumerilii indicates that polychaete six1/2 expression outlines the entire visual system from early developmental stages onwards and ath-positive clusters generate the first photoreceptor cells to appear. Expand
The orthodenticle gene encodes a novel homeo domain protein involved in the development of the Drosophila nervous system and ocellar visual structures.
TLDR
The predicted otd protein contains a well-conserved homeo domain and is therefore likely to be a transcriptional regulator involved in specifying cell fate both in the embryonic CNS and in the ocelli. Expand
Otx genes are required for tissue specification in the developing eye.
TLDR
A model is proposed in which Otx gene products are required for the determination and differentiation of the pigment epithelium, co-operating with other eye patterning genes in the determination of the specialised tissues that will constitute the mature vertebrate eye. Expand
Isolation and expression of Pax6 and atonal homologues in the American horseshoe crab, Limulus polyphemus
TLDR
The roles of Pax6 and atonal during embryonic development of Limulus polyphemus rudimentary lateral, medial and ventral eyes, and the initiation of lateral ommatidial eye and medial ocelli formation are investigated. Expand
The segmental pattern of otx, gbx, and Hox genes in the annelid Platynereis dumerilii
TLDR
The data support the view that an ancestral ground pattern of segmental identities existed in the trunk of the last common protostome ancestor that was lost or modified in protostomes lacking overt segmentation. Expand
Early development in the velvet worm Euperipatoides kanangrensis Reid 1996 (Onychophora: Peripatopsidae)
TLDR
The data support the view of a blastopore that becomes elongated and slit-like, resembling some of the earliest descriptions, and it is concluded that the position of the proctodeum is the most posterior pit in the developing embryo. Expand
An urbilaterian origin of the tripartite brain: developmental genetic insights from Drosophila
TLDR
It is shown that the embryonic brain of the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster expresses all three sets of homologous genes in a similar tripartite pattern, which suggests that a tri partite organization of the embryonicbrain was already established in the last common urbilaterian ancestor of protostomes and deuterostomes. Expand
Six3 demarcates the anterior-most developing brain region in bilaterian animals
TLDR
These observations indicate that the annelid, onychophoran and arthropod head develops from a conserved anterior-posterior sequence of six3+ and otx+ regions, and supports the hypothesis that the last common ancestor of annelids andArthropods already possessed neurosecretory centres in the most anterior region of the brain.
