Differential gene expression of eight receptor genes within set 3, Glutamate receptor kainite 2-like (gKAR2), Glutamate receptor 2-like (GluR2), Trace amine-associated receptor 13c-like (TAAR13c), G protein-coupled receptor GRL101-like (GRL101), Cholecystokinin receptor type A-like (CCKRa), Metabotropic glutamate receptor 7 (mGluR7), and two isoforms of Alpha-1D adrenergic receptor-like (ADRA1D-like isoform X1 and ADRA1D-like isoform X2). a Log2FC gene overexpression in male COTS sensory tentacle (ST). b Gene expression in multiple COTS tissues: female sensory tentacle (STF), female tube foot (TFF), male tube foot (TFM) male radial nerve (RNM), female radial nerve (RNF), male spine (SPM), male mouth (MOM), testis (TE), early gastrula (EG), mid gastrula (MG), oocyte (OC). c Agarose gel electrophoresis of RT-PCR amplicons for eight differentially expressed genes in multiple tissues from two pooled male and two pooled female COTS. Tissues: tube foot (TF), sensory tentacle (ST), radial nerve (RN), cardiac stomach (CS), body wall (BW), negative control (Neg). bp, base pairs
