However, in order to fully understand the evolution of animal appendages, it is essential to include information on appendage development from lophotrochozoan representatives. Here, we examined the basic dynamics of the Octopus vulgaris arm’s formation and differentiation - as a highly evolved member of the lophotrochozoan super phylum - with a special focus on the… CONTINUE READING
