Molecular characterization of the apical organ of the anthozoan Nematostella vectensis.

Sinigaglia C, Busengdal H, Lerner A, Oliveri P, Rentzsch F - Dev. Biol. (2014)

Bottom Line: In bilaterians they are characterised by a tuft of long cilia and receptor cells and they are associated with groups of neurons, but their relatively low morphological complexity and dispersed phylogenetic distribution have left their evolutionary relationship unresolved.To provide a foundation for a better understanding of this structure we have characterised the molecular composition of the apical organ of the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis.Our study provides a molecular characterization of the apical organ of Nematostella and represents an informative tool for future studies addressing the development, function and evolutionary history of apical organ cells.

The AO gene set is enriched for ciliary genes. The percentage of BLAST hits against the custom ciliary database (Supplementary File 1) is shown for the AO dataset (red square) and for 10 random Nematostella datasets. The values of the random datasets are lower than the value for the AO dataset.
