    • Brachyury expression in the adult ctenophore, Pleurobrachia bachei 

      Kareiva, Isaac; Moroz, Leonid; Swalla, Billie; Kohn, Andrea (2012)
      Brachyury is a transcription factor important for mesoderm formation in chordates. Ctenophores are basal metazoans with little known about their germ layer organization. For this reason, brachyury was used as a possible ...
    • Brachyury expression in the adult ctenophore, Pleurobrachia bachei. 

      Kareiva, Isaac; Moroz, Leonid; Swalla, Billie J.; Kohn, Andrea (Friday Harbor Laboratories, 2012-06)
      Brachyury is a transcription factor important for mesoderm formation in chordates. Ctenophores are basal metazoans with little known about their germ layer organization. For this reason, brachyury was used as a possible ...
    • Collagen type IV in the Ctenophore Pleurobrachia bachei 

      Churches, Nathan; Swalla, Billie; Moroz, Leonid; Kohn, Andrea (2012)
      The evolution of multicellular animals required the development of epithelial tissues that function in controlling the transport of molecules from one environment to another. Collagen proteins are crucial to the formation ...

    • The Collagens of the Ctenophore Pleurobrachia bachei 

      Churches, Nathan; Swalla, Billie J.; Kohn, Andrea; Moroz, Leonid (Friday Harbor Laboratories, 2012-10)

    • The expression of neural and developmental genes in Pleurobrachia bachei 

      Mahone, Ian; Swalla, Billie J.; Kohn, Andrea; Moroz, Leonid (Friday Harbor Laboratories, 2012-10)
      Brachyury and Forkhead are transcription factors that play an important role for development within organisms. Ctenophores are basal metazoans with little known about what kind of gene they have or where these genes are ...
    • Gone with the Wnts.... The Wnt Signaling Pathway in Pleurobrachia bachei 

      Bruders, Rebecca; Swalla, Billie J.; Moroz, Leonid; Kohn, Andrea (Friday Harbor Laboratories, 2012-06)
      Wnt signaling is known to be critical for proper embryonic development in most animals studied to date15. But key evolutionary questions on the origin and evolution of this pathway in the metazoan common ancestor are still ...

    • The Origins of Neurons and use of Glutamatergic Signaling in the Ctenophore: Pleurobrachia bachei 

      Swore, Josh; Moroz, Leonid; Swalla, Billie J.; Kohn, Andrea (Friday Harbor Laboratories, 2012-06)
      Ctnenophores are a group of marine, jelly like, comb bearing metazoans. This phylum consists of an estimated 100-°©‐200 species (Mills CE, 2012). Ctenophores are similar to cnidarians in that they have a homologous mesoderm ...

    • Out on a LIM: LIM homeobox genes in the ctenophore Pleurobrachia bachei 

      Sanford, Rachel; Swalla, Billie; Moroz, Leonid; Kohn, Andrea (2012)
      LIM homeobox (Lhx) gene family consists of six subfamilies of patterning genes which play a major role in the development of the nervous system and are found only in animals. We looked at their presence and expression ...

    • A Quest for novel Signaling Molecules in Pleurobrachia Bachei 

      Girardo, David Orion; Swalla, Billie; Moroz, Leonid; Kohn, Andrea (2012)
      The evolution of the nervous system is poorly understood, with broad implications in basic neuroscience and regenerative medicine. The unintuitive nervous system of the basal Ctenophores provides an insight into neuronal ...
