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.

Expression patterns ofNematostellaapical organ genes. In situ hybridizations at gastrula and planula stages for the genes identified in this study. All images are lateral views with aboral pole to the left. The insets are: (D) aboral view, (DA, AB, VA) higher magnifications. Note: some pictures are also shown in the main figures. Scale bar=100 µm
