Uncovering the pathways underlying whole body regeneration in a chordate
2002) The draft genome of Ciona intestinalis: Insights into chordate
and vertebrate origins.
Another characteristic of chordates
are myomeres, blocks of muscle tissue often arranged in a zig-zag pattern.
In the case of amphibian's phylogeny it's imply the rearrangement of the cells toward a tridermic organisms and within this process the evolution to early chordate
The neurobiology of the ascidian tadpole larva: recent developments in an ancient chordate
Numerical values were assigned to the following categorical traits: leaf shape (0 = chordate
, 1 = ovate, 2 = rhombohedric and 3 = hastate), flower pigmentation (0 = white, 1 = lavender), base of standard (0 = striped and i = smooth), bracteole size (0 = small, 1 = medium, 2 = large), bracteole shape (0 = cordate, 1 = lanceolate, 2 = ovate and 3 = triangular), and pod beak position (1 = central, 2 = placental).
A little more hazily, I recall highlights of my cellular journey long before the first chordate
The researchers found the chordate
species has, in fact, a complex brain, and they compared its development with how the brain evolved in vertebrates like chicks and fish.
Transcriptome dynamics in the asexual cycle of the chordate
Determining the correct length of artificial chordate
and tying the knot at the intended length remain problematic during mitral valve repair through RM.
It's a long way from amphioxus: descendants of the earliest chordate
