Differential Responses to Wnt and PCP Disruption Predict Expression and Developmental Function of Conserved and Novel Genes in a Cnidarian

Summary of expression profiles observed for the analyzed transcripts.

The differentially expressed transcripts analyzed in this study showed four basic types of expression profile: Oral (oral pole ectoderm at all stages); Ingressing/Endodermal (cells moving into the endodermal region during gastrulation and persisting in this region); Aboral (aboral pole throughout) and Delayed (absent or very low expression at the beginning of gastrulation, then expression in a variety of regions/cell types at the planula stages). Within these four categories there were differences in the limits of detected expression as indicated.
