Unexpected diversity of cnidarian integrins: expression during coral gastrulation

Knack, Brent A; Iguchi, A; Shinzato, Chuya; Hayward, David; Ball, Eldon; Miller, David J


BACKGROUND: Adhesion mediated through the integrin family of cell surface receptors is central to early development throughout the Metazoa, playing key roles in cell-extra cellular matrix adhesion and modulation of cadherin activity during the convergence and extension movements of gastrulation. It has been suggested that Caenorhabditis elegans, which has a single β and two α integrins, might reflect the ancestral integrin complement. Investigation of the integrin repertoire of anthozoan...[Show more]
