    The induction of heat shock proteins (HSPs) in the nematode Plectus acuminatus (Nematoda; Plectidae) was studied following exposure to heat, copper, and cadmium. Mini two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis was used for protein separation and poly- and monoclonal antibodies raised...

    Background: Recent studies have challenged the widespread view that the pattern of embryogenesis found in Caenorhabditis elegans (clade 9) is characteristic of nematodes in general. To understand this still largely unexplored landscape of developmental events, we set out to examine more...
