    J Exp Zool B Mol Dev Evol 312:885-900. 2009
    ..We propose that multiple stem cell types are circulating within B. violaceus and that they undergo proliferation in the peripheral vasculature before differentiating into epithelial tissues for all three germ layers during WBR...
  2. doi request reprint Evolution and development of budding by stem cells: ascidian coloniality as a case study
    Federico D Brown
    Biology Department, University of Washington, Seattle, 98195, USA
    Dev Biol 369:151-62. 2012
    ..We review hypotheses for changes in stem cell lineages in colonial species, describe what the current data suggest about the evolution of budding, and discuss where we believe further studies will be most fruitful...

    Federico D Brown
    Biology Department, Center for Developmental Biology, and Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    Development 136:3485-94. 2009
    ..Transient vasa knockdown did not have obvious effects on germline or somatic development in adult colonies, although it did result in a profound heterochrony, suggesting that vasa might play a homeostatic role in asexual development...

    Federico D Brown
    Biology Department, Center for Developmental Biology, and Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    Evol Dev 9:165-77. 2007
    ..We propose that expression of vasa in cells other than gonadal germ cells of zooids in a colonial ascidian may serve as a source of germ-line stem cells in the colony...

    Federico D Brown
    Biology Department and Center for Developmental Biology, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98195, USA
    Genesis 46:605-13. 2008
    ..We conclude that "Man is but a worm...," that our chordate ancestors were worm-like deposit and/or filter feeders with pharyngeal slits, and an anterior tripartite unsegmented neurosensory region...
