Research Interests

Vitamin A and its derivatives play several essential roles during embryogenesis and throughout adult life in Metazoa. Although the role of RA has been extensively studied in vertebrates, very little is known about its function in invertebrates. Recent findings reported that mollusks show a well-conserved RA molecular machinery. However, it is unclear whether RA is actually required for correct development. The goal of this PhD project will be to clarify the requirements of RA signaling on an evolutionary timescale, through the investigation of the function of RA during the development of Mytilus galloprovincialis and the determination of its molecular transcriptional mechanisms.
