Chordates Books

The main difference between chordates and protochordates is that the chordates are the animals that have distinct characteristics such as a notochord, dorsal nerve chord, pharyngeal slits, and a muscular tail whereas the protochordates are an informal group of invertebrates within chordates. Furthermore, the three subphyla of chordates are Vertebrata , Urochordata , and Cephalochordata while protochordates consist of both Urochordata and Cephalochordata. Chordates and protochordates represent animals with a higher organization within the kingdom Animalia. Chordates are animals that belong to the phylum Chordata with the highest organization in the animal kingdom. The four main characteristic features of the chordates are. Figure 1: Chordate Anatomy 1. Chordates can be subdivided into two groups as vertebrates and invertebrates chordates or protochordates.

The cephalochordate, amphioxus, is phylogenetically placed at the most primitive position in the chordate clade. Despite many studies on the endocrine system of amphioxus, definitive evidence has not been reported for the presence an endocrine system comparable to the pituitary—gonadal axis, which is important in the regulation of reproduction in vertebrates. Recent genome analyses in the amphioxus, Branchiostoma floridae , showed that it does not have any pituitary hormone genes except the thyrostimulin gene. In addition, genes for sex steroidogenic enzymes belonging to the CYP family were found in the genome sequences.

Animals in the phylum Chordata share four key features: a notochord, a dorsal hollow nerve cord, pharyngeal slits, and a post-anal tail. Animals in the phylum Chordata share four key features that appear at some stage during their development often, only during embryogenesis :. Defining characteristics of chordates : In chordates, four common features appear at some point during development: a notochord, a dorsal hollow nerve cord, pharyngeal slits, and a post-anal tail. The chordates are named for the notochord: a flexible, rod-shaped structure that is found in the embryonic stage of all chordates and also in the adult stage of some chordate species. It is located between the digestive tube and the nerve cord, providing skeletal support through the length of the body. In vertebrates, the notochord is present during embryonic development, at which time it induces the development of the neural tube which serves as a support for the developing embryonic body. The notochord, however, is replaced by the vertebral column spine in most adult vertebrates.

Protochordates are an informal category of animals i. The Phylum Hemichordata consists of marine worms that share some, but not all of the characteristics of chordates. These animals have pharyngeal gill slits and a dorsal nerve cord, which is usually solid. The three body parts are proboscis, collar and trunk. What was once thought to be a notochord is no longer considered homologous. Acorn worms are examples of hemichordates.

During some period of their life cycle, chordates possess a notochord , a dorsal nerve cord , pharyngeal slits , and a post-anal tail : these four anatomical features define this phylum. Chordates are also bilaterally symmetric , and have a coelom , metameric segmentation , and circulatory system. The Chordata and Ambulacraria together form the superphylum Deuterostomia. Chordates are divided into three subphyla : Vertebrata fish , amphibians , reptiles , birds , and mammals ; Tunicata or Urochordata sea squirts , salps ; and Cephalochordata which includes lancelets.
