Snail expression during embryonic development of the coral Acropora: blurring the diploblast/riploblast divide

Hayward, David; Miller, David J.; Ball, Eldon


Although corals are nominally diploblastic, the early development of Acropora millepora involves a process that clearly resembles gastrulation in higher metazoans. This similarity at the morphological level led us to search for the Acropora equivalents of genes whose key roles in gastrulation are conserved across the higher Metazoa. We here report the characterisation of one such gene, snail, which in both Drosophila and the mouse is expressed in cells undergoing an epithelial-mesenchyme...[Show more]
