- Ciliary photoreceptors with a vertebrate-type opsin in an invertebrate brainDetlev Arendt
Developmental Biology Department, European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Meyerhofstrasse 1, 69012 Heidelberg, Germany
Science 306:869-71. 2004..Comparative analysis indicates that both types of photoreceptors, with distinct opsins, coexisted in Urbilateria, the last common ancestor of insects and vertebrates, and sheds new light on vertebrate eye evolution...

Genome Biol 6:303. 2005..A report on the annual UK Evolutionary Developmental Biology meeting, Oxford, UK, 13 September 2004...
- The evolution of nervous system centralizationDetlev Arendt
Developmental Biology Unit, European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg 69117, Germany
Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 363:1523-8. 2008..This way, different aspects of the molecular architecture of the urbilaterian nervous system are reconstructed and yield insight into the degree of centralization that was in place in the bilaterian ancestors...
- Vertebrate-type intron-rich genes in the marine annelid Platynereis dumeriliiFlorian Raible
Developmental Unit, European Molecular Biological Laboratory EMBL, Meyerhofstrasse 1, D 69117 Heidelberg, Germany
Science 310:1325-6. 2005..A comparison of coding exon sequences confirms the ancestral nature of Platynereis and human genes. Thus, the urbilaterian ancestor had complex, intron-rich genes that have been retained in Platynereis and human...
