Functional similarities between planarian muscle and vertebrate connective tissue. Single cell sequencing from planarians and mouse are shown in two dimensional tSNE plots (top), highlighting cell populations of interest, as defined from previously published total gene expression data. The average expression of core matrisome, including Smed-hmcn-1, and secreted PCGs/signaling factors (Supplementary Data 3) show strong expression in the muscle (planarian SCS data12, left) and connective tissue (mouse SCS data57, right). Lower panel summarizes functional roles of planarian muscle and vertebrate connective tissues
