The CNS of the protovertebrate contains a single cluster of dopaminergic (DA) neurons, the coronet cells, which have been likened to the hypothalamus of vertebrates. Whole-embryo single-cell RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) assays identified as the most...

<p>The outstanding characteristics of the marine invertebrate chordates, ascidians, are a sessile adult stage and cellulose production. These characteristics are not seen in other chordate groups. Molecular studies have suggested that these two ch...

The mRNAs stored in eggs are crucial for embryogenesis. To address functions of maternal mRNAs, we recently reported the novel method MASK (maternal mRNA-specific knockdown), which we used to specifically knockdown maternal transcripts in the asci...

Transgenesis is an indispensable method for elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying biological phenomena. In Ciona, transgenic lines that have a transgene insertion in their genomes have been created. The transgenic lines are ...

Enhancer trap is a famous application of transposons. This method is useful for the creation of marker transgenic lines that express a reporter gene in tissue- or organ-specific manner, characterization of enhancers in the genome, finding novel pa...
