Implications of cnidarian gene expression patterns for the origins of bilaterality - is the glass half full or half empty?

Ball, Eldon; DeJong, Danielle; Schierwater, Bernd; Shinzato, Chuya; Hayward, David; Miller, David J.


The past two years have seen a dramatic increase in the available data on gene sequence and gene expression for cnidarians and other "lower" Metazoa, and a flurry of recent papers has drawn on these to address the origins of bilaterality. Cnidarian homologs of many genes that play key roles in the specification of both the A/P and D/V axes of bilaterians have been characterized, and their patterns of expression determined. Some of these expression patterns are consistent with the possibility of...[Show more]
