Gene Action Changes during Nonvertebrate Differentiation

  • Lawrence S. Dillon


Although a large number of gene action changes were made manifest by the several aspects of vertebrate differentiation described in the preceding chapter, a fuller picture of their nature and universality emerges from an examination of various life-history aspects of protistans, especially those of fungi and ciliates. Germination in green plants, too, has much to contribute to a more thorough understanding of the problems associated with such changes, as does also sporulation in prokaryotes. This diversity of topics provides the greater quantity of facts to the present discussion, but a few invertebrates like Hydra also have been sufficiently investigated to round out the account still more.
