[24.] Juliano CE, Voronina E, Stack C, Aldrich M, Cameron AR (2006) Germ line determinants are not localized early in sea urchin development, but do accumulate in the small micromere
Spatial aspects of cell interactions involved in the determination of dorsoventral polarity in equally cleaving gastropods and regulative abilities of their embryos, as studied by micromere
deletions in Lymnaea and Patella.
" formation and expression of endomesoderm regulatory genes during embryogenesis of the primitive echinoid Prionocidaris baculosa.
A regulatory gene network that directs micromere
specification in the sea urchin embryo.
A Ral/MEK/ERK signaling pathway is required for development of the sea urchin embryo micromere
lineage through phosphorylation of the transcription factor Ets.
descendants at the blastula stage are involved in normal archenteron formation in sea urchin embryos.
Lambert and Nagy (2001) demonstrated that activated ERK1/2, MAPK is required in the D quadrant (i.e., 3D) and subsequently in specific micromere
progeny of the A and C quadrants for proper cell specification and dorsoventral (DV) axis formation in the gastropod Ilyanassa.
obsoleta Hb-like proteins are expressed in every micromere
and macromere nucleus from one cell to at least the sixth cleavage division.
Molluscs, like most other lophotrochozoans, exhibit a highly conserved pattern of spiral cleavage that generates four macromeres surmounted by four tiers of micromere
It remained attached to the vegetal pole of the embryo as a spherical packet of red-colored cytoplasm ("red body") at least through the period when micromere
quartets were generated (Fig.

Development of a "'primitive" sea urchin (Eucidaris tribuloides): irregularities in the hyaline layer, micromeres
, and primary mesenchyme.
