Conservation and divergence of bHLH genes in the calcisponge Sycon ciliatum

Fortunato, Sofia; Vervoort, Michel; Adamski, Marcin; Adamska, Maja


Basic Helix-Loop-Helix (bHLH) genes encode a large family of eukaryotic transcription factors, categorized into six high-order groups: pan-eukaryotic group B involved in regulation of cell cycle, metabolism, and development; holozoan-specific groups C and F involved in development and maintenance of homeostasis; and metazoan-specific groups A, D and E including well-studied genes, such as Atonal, Twist and Hairy, with diverse developmental roles including control of morphogenesis and...[Show more]
