Examples

  • The data suggest that the age at which various inbred mouse strains become capable of epimorphic regeneration may be correlated with adult body weight.

  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, U.S.A., help to explain how epimorphic regeneration - the regrowing of morphologically and functionally perfect copies of amputated limbs - is controlled, an important step toward understanding why certain animals can do it and we cannot.

  • In addition, SDF1 as well as FGF signalling pathways have recently been shown to be involved in the control of epimorphic regeneration.

  • Using a combination of pharmaceutical and genetic tools, we show that during epimorphic regeneration, expression of sdf1, as well as of its cognate receptors, cxcr4a, cxcr4b and cxcr7 are controlled by FGF signalling.

  • Fgfs have also been shown to be required in epidermal cells for a complete epimorphic regeneration of the heart
