Surprisingly rich repertoire of Wnt genes in the demosponge Halisarca dujardini

Borisenko, Ilya; Adamski, Marcin; Ereskovsky, Alexander; Adamska, Maja

Description

BACKGROUND: Wnt proteins are secreted signalling molecules found in all animal phyla. In bilaterian animals, including humans, Wnt proteins play key roles in development, maintenance of homeostasis and regeneration. While Wnt gene repertoires and roles are strongly conserved between cnidarians and bilaterians, Wnt genes from basal metazoans (sponges, ctenophores, placozoans) are difficult or impossible to assign to the bilaterian + cnidarian orthologous groups. Moreover,...[Show more]
