The Molecular Embryology of a Cephalopod Mollusc, Octopus bimaculoides

Caroline Beth Albertin
Cephalopods have a highly derived body plan and a suite of innovations with no obvious correlates in other animals. One of the most striking novelties in cephalopods is their embryogenesis, which lacks any trace of the spiral cleavage pattern found in non-cephalopod molluscs and other spiralians. Instead, cephalopod embryos undergo bilateral, meroblastic cleavage on top of a large yolk, greatly resembling early embryogenesis in fish and constituting a striking convergence between these two distantly related...
