Building of Ctenophores Model

Ctenophores are one of the earliest surviving metazoan phyla. The ability of adult regeneration varies greatly within the population, and the elongated body reproduces sexually and asexually by fission. They are a group of marine organisms whose unique biology and phylogenetic position make them a key taxon for understanding animal evolution. Ctenophores are an informative taxon for understanding the evolution of regeneration. Because ctenophores are amenable to modern technical methods, they may prove to be a very useful emerging model. Ctenophores are classic model systems of regeneration and embryonic development that can be conveniently positioned to provide information on the evolution of regeneration. Most ctenophores display extensive regenerative capabilities throughout their lifetimes. Many organs can replace not only one missing organ, but half or more structures in the body with perfect fidelity. Only one ctenophore lineage, beroids, lost its ability to regenerate, suggesting it existed in the most recent common ancestor of all ctenophores.

Building of Ctenophores Model

Our Services

We focused on the unique regenerative aspects of ctenophore, which has become a popular model for its rapid wound healing and tissue replacement, optical clarity, and genome sequencing.

  • Building of animal regeneration model
    Most ctenophores exhibit extensive regenerative capabilities throughout their lifetimes; many organs can replace not only a single missing organ, but half or more structures in the body with perfect fidelity.
  • Building of embryonic development model
    We have an excellent ability to breed laboratory animals on demand and have access to embryos for genetic experiments, especially CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing.
  • Phylogenetic analyses
    As your trusted partner, we can meet your ctenophore analysis needs and provide you with efficient and high-quality services.
  • Building of bioluminescent model
    Bioluminescent models are now routinely used in genetic testing, protein-protein interaction detection, high-throughput screening.

Our Equipment

Our equipment for biological modeling and detection includes protein microsequencers, fluorometry, spectrophotometers, DNA sequencers, PCR machines, and phosphorescence imaging equipment; as well as optical equipment capable of image processing, such as those equipped with fluorescence and differential interference contrast Optics for video microscope image processors.

Culture Methods

A major area of technology required for ctenophores is laboratory culture equipment and procedures that will allow egg-to-egg culture of ctenophores, including methods for mass culture of embryos, larvae, juveniles, and adults. This will also enhance genetic techniques, including the development of inbred lines and the isolation and generation of useful and informative mutants.

  • Housing: Any standard aquarium, bucket, or large beaker can be used to keep ctenophores, as long as there is little to no water turbulence.
  • Diet: Taking some inspiration from the literature on large zebrafish housing, we determined that rotifers are the best source of staple food.
