Disease relevance of Hydrozoa

  • We have isolated the serum response factor (SRF) homologue from two hydrozoans, the freshwater polyp Hydra vulgaris and the marine colonial Hydractinia echinata; we have termed the Hydra gene HvSRF and the Hydractinia gene HeSRF [1].
  • Multiple stages of Liriope tetraphylla caused paresthesias leading to chafing and excoriations in swimmers along the Southern Uruguayan and Northern Argentinean Atlantic coasts [2].

High impact information on Hydrozoa

  • Cnox-2 is a HOM/HOX homeobox gene that we have identified in the simple metazoan Hydra vulgaris (Cnidaria: Hydrozoa) [3].
  • Cloning and analysis of the L17 ribosomal protein cDNA from Podocoryne carnea (Coelenterata, Hydrozoa) [4].
  • Sars (Coelenterata, Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) stains a fibrillar component of the Podocoryne ECMs in immunohistochemical preparations [5].
  • Here we report the isolation of two orthologs of one such gene, nanos (nos), in the cnidarian Podocoryne carnea, a species with representative zoological features among the hydrozoans [6].
  • Here we report the identification and characterization of glycine receptors in the freshwater polyp Hydra vulgaris (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) by biochemical and behavioural studies [7].
