New Paper in Developmental Biology on Transgenesis in Saccoglossus

We describe an efficient method of transgenesis for the characterization of non-coding elements in S. kowalevskii for the first time in a hemichordate species. Using the I-SceI meganuclease-mediated transgenesis system we are able to drive ubiquitous or regionalized gene expression in live embryos With this transgenesis system it is possible to label individual cell types, […]

Wnt A/P paper OUT

http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pbio.2003698 The anteroposterior (A/P) axis is a conserved feature of bilateral animals and is defined in the anterior by a head and in the posterior by a trunk. The secreted family of Wnt proteins and their antagonists play a conserved role in setting up this axis during early development in many bilaterians. The widely accepted […]
