- Features of the ancestral bilaterian inferred from Platynereis dumerilii ParaHox genesJerome H L Hui
Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK
BMC Biol 7:43. 2009..Conventional protostome models (Drosophila melanogaster and Caenorhabditis elegans) are secondarily derived with respect to ParaHox genes, suffering gene loss and cluster break-up...

Mol Biol Evol 29:157-65. 2012..dumerilii and chordates. This implies a very low rate of interchromosomal genome rearrangement in the lineages leading to P. dumerilii and the chordate ancestor since the time of the PDA...
- MicroRNA evolution by arm switchingSam Griffiths-Jones
Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Manchester, Michael Smith Building, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PT, UK
EMBO Rep 12:172-7. 2011..Arm switching is likely to be general, and provides a fundamental mechanism to evolve the function of a miRNA locus and target gene network...
- Do cnidarians have a ParaHox cluster? Analysis of synteny around a Nematostella homeobox gene clusterJerome H L Hui
Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PS, UK
Evol Dev 10:725-30. 2008..This proves that the duplication that gave rise to the Hox and ParaHox regions of bilaterians occurred before the origin of cnidarians, and the cnidarian N. vectensis has bona fide Hox and ParaHox loci...
