Cover legend

Temporal and spatial expression of Hrwnt-5, as revealed by whole-mount in situ hybridization. After fertilization, maternal transcripts of this gene are localized at the posterior region of embryos. For details see "Hrwnt-5: a maternally expressed ascidian Wnt gene with posterior localization in early embryos: by Y. Sasakura et al. in this issue.
